Responsible Ways to Host a Pool Party at Your Apartment Complex


If you are thinking of hosting a pool party at your apartment complex, there are some things that you need to know.  Before you invite your friends and family over for some fun in the sun, make sure that you plan for the event.  Below we will learn some tips that will help you host a responsible event.  Please review these tips so that your next party will be fun for everyone!

Make Sure You Have Enough Restrooms

While your pool facility may have a few bathrooms, this might not be enough.  Depending on the number of people at your party, you may need extra restrooms to accommodate your guests.  The best way to do this is by renting a porta potty.  These portable bathrooms can be rented and delivered to the site of your event. The best part is you never have to deal with any cleanup.  When you are finished with your party, simply call the rental company and they will come pick the unit up.  Before you rent a portable toilet, contact your property manager and tell him or her about your plans.  Some apartment complexes are gated and the delivery driver may need to gain access to your location.  The rental will probably be delivered early on the day of your event.

Check Your Rental Agreement

Before you decided to have a party at the community pool, check your rental agreement.  Some apartment complexes will allow you to hold an event for free while other will charge a fee.  On the other hand, some apartment agreements completely ban parties in common areas. If you have any doubts about what is allowed and not, make sure to speak with your apartment manager in person. This will ensure that you are not violating any written rules.  If you fail to do so, you could even be evicted for hosting a party if it violates your contract.  No one wants to find out the hard way that they have to leave their home.  So be diligent and do your homework before sending out the invitations.

Limit the Alcohol

If your pool party is an adult one, then some of your guests will probably want to have a few drinks.  But to be respectful to other tenants inside the complex, you should limit the amount of alcohol that you will serve.  This may seem difficult to do, but with some tips, you can safely accomplish this goal without insulting any of your guests.  To control the flow of alcohol, only offer it for the first few hours of the party.  Also, make sure that there is plenty of food at the pool party and offer some non-alcoholic beverages for your guests.  By doing so, your party will go off without a hitch.

These simple and easy to follow tips can help you throw a respectable pool party that you can be proud of.  Everyone loves a good party and if done right, your next event can be a memorable one.  So, make sure to start planning today by following these helpful ideas.
