Whether you are pre-, post-, or no kids, whether you have a backyard pool, a lake cottage, a beach house or a place down on the lazy river, now is the time for a grown-ups summer water party!
What to serve
Keep Food Cool With an Inflatable Cooler. But will it float?
Swimming, floating or just hanging out takes FUEL. Finger foods, snacks, drinks and a barbecue keep guests happy! Remember to have some girly stuff and some guy stuff so everyone is happy. Also respect those who choose not to drink alcohol.
The Finger Food
Sure everyone loves salsa and chips and guac, but mix it up a little!
Break old habits! Put out different dippers–try wild new crackers, gourmet pita chips or a new variety of corn chips for these! For veggies add yucca or vibrantly colored carrots, golden beets. Live a little! For the cheese ball, we get it–it is for the guys. But they won’t die from having a few multi-grain or seeded crackers in with the Triskets or Ritz!
In addition to everyone’s favorites, have a Margarita sampling bar. Use these suggestions or concoct your own!
