So my husband and I are about to throw our 2nd ever pool party in a few weeks (we just got a house with a pool about 2 years ago). I feel like I learned a lot from last year's party, but am wondering if any of you more experienced party-throwers have tips to share!
Last year's party went pretty well but I felt like we had too many people (37 total) for our smallish space. Also, I bbq'd for everyone, which meant everyone was trying to eat around the same time (since the food was ready pretty much all at once), which necessitated tables/chairs, which took up more room. This time we are solving these problems by inviting fewer people and doing a nacho bar (food will be in crock pots, etc ahead of time so everyone can nibble throughout the day when they want).
What are some more good ideas?
