Chicagoans are just getting into the swing of summer in July and the time has never seemed so right to plan a pool party! Throw on a pair of white jeans, add a cube to your Mojito, and check out the list of these essentials for your memorable event. Just add friends!
Cheers and Happy Summer to Our Friends!
FESTIVE NAPKINS - Plan to have lots of festive imprinted napkins on hand from local Pulp and Ink. Feel free to create your own messages or have owner Colin Falco develop a bespoke house monogram for you. Call for prices.
GLASS CONVERSATION STARTER - Ariel Glassware is perfect for cocktail hour. A crafted cocktail tastes better in a handblown glass directly from that warm weather playground, San Miguel Allende, Mexico.
GO BLUE - You’ll need stacks of indigo napkins to serve snacks throughout the pool season. Natural sustainable hand-dyed indigo is perfect for summer to keep your outdoor table looking both casual and sophisticated. Available here at The Storied Table :: ALLIE
LIGHT AND FLUFFY LETTERS - Arrange for some creative skywriting to entertain your guests. They’ll look up to you (LOL).
GET CRAFTY - Why not try some unique DIY pool décor? So much more creative than anything you will find in the stores.
FUN & GAMES - Once the party gets started, keep the energy going and indulge your guests’ competitive streak with a Floating Pong Tiki Table. $84.99.
ITTY BITTY - Behind the scenes, Entertaining Company will be working to delight your guests with surprisingly delicious morsels, miniaturized, for easy pool side snacking.
