Are you keeping your pool open through Halloween? You’ll want to when you hear these ideas for an amazing Halloween pool party! The right lighting and props can create the perfect atmosphere for whatever type of bash you have planned for your ghosts and ghouls. Here are a few fun ideas:
- First think lighting. Glow sticks or LED lights placed in or around the pool can add color and ambiance. Go for a single color for an elegant look, or mix it up for a more festive atmosphere. Or use blacklights for an ultra-creepy feel.
- Love pumpkin carving? Consider a pumpkin plunge! Have guests carve their own pumpkins and light them with battery-operated candles. Or you can have them ready and placed in the pool in advance if carving isn’t in your plans.
- If you’re willing to spend a bit of money to make your party truly memorable, consider a fog machine. The fog rolling over the water looks amazing and turns your pool into a black lagoon.
- Hold a swimwear-themed costume contest. Everyone needs to include a swimming suit or wet suit in their getup. Whether you go as Michael Phelps or a Disney princess, prepare to get wet!
Of course there are tons of other fun recipes, crafts, and other spooktacular activities you can add to your Halloween pool party. Have fun brainstorming some ideas of your own, and Happy Haunting!
