Some Like it Hot Tub: How to Throw a Haute Swimming Soirée

Last summer, I hosted a “Some Like it Hot Tub” party in which my friends and I watched Some Like it Hot, imbibed, and snacked, all while trying to keep our munchies and drinks above the bubbling water of a hot tub! It’s been nearly a year since then, and as the heat rises across the U.S., it seems there’s no time like the present to host a hot tub party!

So, if you happen to have a hot tub, or, the next best thing – a kiddy pool – take a few of my favorite freshwater ModCloth picks and a splash of hydrating beverage and snacks to host a party that’s sure to be unsinkable!

1. Beach Blanket Bingo Two Piece in Black 2. Retro-freshment Bottle Set 3. Ice Cream or Cola Sunglasses 4. Some Like It Hot on DVD 5. Sugar Hi-Fi Speakers 6. Bathing Beauty One Piece in Red 7. Great Bite Shark Bottle Opener 8. Float Away Serving Bowl

Movie, check. Outfit, check. Accessories, check. Now, let’s check out the menu!

Coconut Cream Popsicles via Smile Monsters, Honeydew Hefeweizen Smoothie via Adventures in Cooking, and French Cheese Puffs via Making Life Delicious.

Present your party with unexpected brews and bites, starting with Honeydew Hefeweizen Smoothies or Vino Colas in easy-to-pour pitchers like our Retro-freshment Bottle Set. For an equally refreshing, alcohol-alternative drink, offer your guests the option of a Cucumber Agua Fresca with lemon and mint.

Lastly, but most importantly, peeps need to eat! Give your guests a handmade assortment of fresh fruit kebabs, along with carb-a-licious French Cheese Puffs. I’ll take one of everything!

Do you have any special recipes or style secrets on how to beat the heat and host a sensational swimming party?

    I really like this style of swim wear, it remindes me very young Elizabeth Taylor. Some like it hot is great comedy. I love past times…
