Your must-have pool party essentials to beat the summer heatwave
Vegemite. BBQ. Meat pies. There’s some things that are just quintessentially Australian. Our sunburnt country has notoriously hot summers, and no doubt, this extreme weather is set to stick around until early March.
If you’re planning a pool party this Australia Day, LENZO has the goods to keep the celebrations going. You provide the top 40 beats + delicious snacks: we’ll give you our suggestions on the must-have pool party essentials! Are you ready to make a splash?
1. POOL FLOATS
Of course, inflatables top the list of must-haves for your pool party. We mean, it wouldn’t be a celebration without one (or three!) Insta-worthy floats – we’re especially loving the BAEWATCH ring!
At a pool party, it’s often the little details that make the biggest impact, so make a splash by serving fresh fruit, meat skewers, and pizza on stylish plates! With a range of designs and patterns to choose from, don’t forget to accompany your tableware with matching napkins and cups to really create a cohesive theme.

Just as important as the food are the drinks. Stay hydrated in style with these cute tropical straws, drink stirrers and coasters. Oh, and we almost forgot the most important element: a cocktail party kit. Anyone up for a cheeky Pina Colada?
4. DECORATIONS + PROPS
You’ve got the pool – now all you need are the decorations and props to give off a real fiesta vibe. Think hired greenery to place around the lounge area, flamingo neon signs (because why not?!), and fruit party picks to decorate the food. You’ll also need to keep the drinks cool and close at hand, which is why we’re in love with the stylish half-barrel ice bucket – how convenient!

Did you think we would leave out one of the most important decorations?! It’s just not a party without balloons! There’s a few ways you can incorporate balloons into your outdoor party space: create jumbo words to drape across the gate like AUSSIE, SPLASH or 2019. Or, submerge a DIY balloon garland into one corner of the pool to be that little bit #EXTRA. Don’t forget to throw in some shape balloons for the perfect photo opp.
