With the long weekend just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to make plans with friends and enjoy the sunny, hot weather while it lasts. If you’re looking for help with hosting the perfect backyard party, Beachcomber Hot Tubs has you covered with a few of our favourite tips below.
How To Throw The Perfect Backyard Party
Add Some Shade
While everyone loves enjoying the sun, you also need to make sure you have spots for guests to cool off, without having to step inside and leave the party. Put up a patio umbrella or outdoor shade to provide relief from the summer sun. If you have a large open outdoor space, you might even want to invest in a backyard party tent.
Keep The Refreshments Coming
Make sure your guests stay quenched with a bevy of refreshing beverages stocked in the cooler. Want a prettier pitcher of water? Dress it up with fresh slices of cucumber, oranges, or a handful of fresh berries for unforgettable H2O for your guests to raise a glass to.
Clean Your Hot Tub Beforehand
This is an absolute must! You always want to keep your space looking its best when you’re entertaining company and this extends to your hot tub. Test the hot tub levels at least a few days in advance, to ensure your water is balanced and healthy with the proper Water Care products. Any time you are about to start a high usage period of your Beachcomber, it also might not be a bad time for a drain and re-fill.
Did you know even if the sun is still out, you can cool down the temperature if your hot tub, so you and your friends can enjoy a nice, refreshing dip!
Set The Mood With Music
An amazing playlist is a great way to provide instant ambience to any backyard get together. Pair the food with some cool beats, or make a mix of everyone’s favourite summer jams to really get the party started. If you’re a music-buff in the market for a new hot tub, make sure you check out Beachcomber’s exclusive sound system (available as an option in select models). Add in a floating remote control and you’ll have everything you need to keep the music booming!
Gather Around The Fire Pit
Treat your friends to a taste of cottage life right in your own backyard with a portable fire pit for everyone to gather around and enjoy. It’s the perfect way to finish the night and complete your very own urban oasis, without having to go anywhere at all.
Keep Bugs At Bay
No one invited bugs to the party, but they always seem to crash the fun. Make sure to quell any gate crashing mosquitos and flies with a selection of bug zappers and strategically placed netting.
