Just because summer is over, it does not mean the fun in your swimming pool has to end. There are so many creative ways to throw the best pool party during the fall!

If you are looking for some inspiration, take a look at our tips:

1. Bring out the fall-themed food!

No party is complete without food. And when we think of fall food, apples and pumpkins are the first that come to mind.

Try serving hot apple cider, pumpkin pie or apple strudel. If you would like some more ideas, check out these delicious fall foods recipes.

2. Get creative with your decorations & theme

An easy way to get into the fall spirit is to spruce up your backyard or patio deck with pumpkins, leaves, hay or even a scarecrow! Take it a step further by incorporating a theme. 

Here are some of our favourites:


Ask your guests to come in costume, hand out candy to the kids and get some spooky decorations. Cobwebs, spiders and skeletons would be our choice! 


Why have your dinner indoors when you can bring the turkey outside? Sit amongst the colourful leaves and pumpkins and even take a dip in your pool or hot tub after — sounds like the perfect Thanksgiving to us. 

Pumpkin patch

If you have a large enough backyard, you can even create your very own pumpkin patch! The kids are sure to love this one. 

3. Keep your guests warm 

Help your guests stay warm by serving warm drinks. Bring out the apple cider and hot chocolate for the kids, and coffee and lattes for the adults!

Add extra blankets to your outdoor seating areas, for guests to use if they feel chilly. You can also remind your guests to wear warm clothes to your fall-themed pool party.

If you would like to take it a step further, you can invest in an outdoor heater for extra warmth. For some more creative ways to keep warm, try playing some pool games to keep everyone moving. 

4. Prioritize pool maintenance 

The best swimming pool parties will always have clean and safe pools. Ensure that yours is in the best shape by doing your routine maintenance. 

We recommend starting first with repairing any damage or cracks, cleaning out any debris and cleaning the filter. If you need more guidance, take a look at our top fall pool maintenance tips
