Write down a list of food and drinks that will be available for your Melbourne pool party. To make the after-party clean up easier, use disposable plates, cups and utensils. ,It also avoids the risk of broken glass around the pool area. Remember to provide enough moist towelettes for effortless hand sanitation. In addition, setting up a fan on one end of the food table could help you to keep those annoying flies away from the food area. As an alternative, use some stylish outdoor food covers so the flies will not get onto the food before your guests do
Since you will probably be serving food on the patio, you would surely want dishes that can “keep” well outdoors in the sun and higher temperatures. Food such as Tortilla chips & Salsa, Pretzels, Triscuit Crackers and Cheese all do well, however, on very humid days, cheese will get all “sweaty”. In addition, for crackers and chips, they will go stale quickly when they are not properly covered outdoors.
Fresh fruit kabobs make a great Melbourne function pool party treat. It can also function as a decoration to use any combination of three fruits which are brightly colored, and slide them on a wood skewer stick. To have more fun, try adding marshmallows, or to add a white color. One great presentation is to use small fruits or chopped fruits and try to create a beachball fruit tray from them. To make it easier to manage for swimming Melbourne function venue party guests, it is a good idea to serve finger food like hot dogs or pizza
To make things easier and for variety needs of your guests, serve food buffet-style, either all dishes at once, or in stages. Note that to safely serve foods that need to be kept cool, put the serving bowl or platter in a second bowl (which is larger) with crushed ice in it, and remember to return leftovers to the fridge within an hour or so. It is important to put more attention on dishes that contain eggs or dairy products which spoil quickly. It is recommended to place your Melbourne pool party food on a table in a shaded area.
While above are ideas on food, as for beverages, water is imperative for a hot summer day. What can be more fun than creating some special infused water for your awesome Melbourne function venue? Try cucumber-Mint water, or Lemon-Lime water, or what about Rosemary-Orange water? Other good function pool party drink ideas such as Lemonade or diluted Juices, or Light Beers (in a can) can also be considered. If possible, put the drinks near the pool, therefore, your guests do not have to get out every time they want a refill.
If you are thinking about getting out the blender, set up a frozen drink station where you are able to make Margaritas, Pina Coladas and Daiquiris (serve in fancy plastic party store glasses to add extra points to your Melbourne function party). Make sure to buy more ice than you think is enough, to keep the drinks cold, or the frozen drinks coming. It is always good to also have non-alcoholic beverages available for your guests. It is very important to keep a close eye on those guests who may be drinking and driving – or driving. Make sure that you could get them home safely.
Hopefully the tips above can help you to find the best food and drinks for your pool party.
