Host a Pool Party For 10 Under $40.00

We know, we know…. It’s not like this summer has been producing much “Pool Party” appropriate weather, but we thought we’d still try and hold out for some sunshine for the remainder of the season and dedicate this weeks’ post to hosting a PERFECT pool party – for all under $40!! Yep! Thanks a little bit of help from this month’s Specials, we’ve got the perfect “pool party menu” lineup that could serve well up to 10 guests!!! So get those last minute invites ready… because it is time for a pool party!!

How to Throw a Pool Party For Under $40.00 

With the type of weather we’ve been having as of late, pool parties seem like a bit of a distant memory, however that is in NO way shape or form preventing me from throwing an outdoor shindig in the hopes that summer 2017 can redeem itself in some way!

We can all still hold out for Labour Day right?!

The key to hosting a no-fuss, yet completely awesome, pool party is CONVIENCE…. Both for yourself & your guests! Focus on providing foods & snacks that are EASY to make & EASY to eat! Essentially…. any foods that require a knife, fork and plate should be avoided at ALL costs! Seating space is likely going to be limited, so “grab n go” bites that you can eat with your hands are the foods you should be serving at your pool party! Not to mention, this will save you a lot of post-party cleanup considering that plates are not required for these foods!!!

Below is just a sample menu of easy, simple and TASTY foods that you can serve at your next pool party… have I also mentioned that it’s all for under $40?!
