There is nothing cool or fun about sunburn. Make sure before you do anything, which includes setting up for the party, that you, the kids and hubby have a good layer of SPF protection on your skin.
2. Summertime soundtrack
What is a party without music to set the mood? Here are some of this summer’s hottest songs to add to your pool party playlist:
1. Sugar: Maroon 5
2. Jason Derulo: Want to want me
3. OMI: Cheerleader
4: The Weekend: Can’t feel my face
5: Selena Gomez featuring A$AP Rocky: Good for you
3. Beautiful swimwear
Feel like a movie star by treating yourself to a beautiful swimsuit, a sarong in your favourite colour, a massive sun hat and stylish sunglasses.
4. Something good to eat
While we do all scream for ice cream, there are healthier alternatives that are just as yummy. Try these homemade strawberry and yoghurt lollies. They are sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike!
5. Thirst quenchers
If you’re all going to be out in the sun then it is very important to stay hydrated and refreshed. Do this by making delicious and healthy Rooibos ice tea with Freshpak’s new flavours; Watermelon and Mint, Cranberry and Pomegranate or Green Tea. Brew up a large batch, mix in your favourite fruits, serve ice cold and stay cool all summer long.
