Not only does pool lighting enhance your pool on New Years but all year long. Nothing beats swimming during a summer night or having guests over around the pool with lighting that accents your pool. You put a lot of money into building the pool or purchasing a home that already had a pool, why not show it off!

Arrange your chairs and tables along the side of the pool in such a way that there’s still enough room for people to comfortably and safely walk around the edge. Space each reclining chair about two to three feet apart in order to give your guests room to stand up and get off of the chair. Arrange normal plastic yard furniture around tables to give non-reclining and non-swimming guests a place to sit down and chat. Place a snack and drink table near the sitting tables, and ensure that a variety of appropriate snacks are available, such as meats, crackers and cheeses.
