Beach Party Decorations Guide
If you would rather have the party indoors, then decorate the walls with colored paper. You can make cutouts of an ocean scene complete with seaweeds, sharks and fish and stick them on the walls using a duct tape.
You can add green and brown tropical palm leaf thatch by cutting strips of green and brown paper and attaching it to the edges of the table and chairs.
If it's a beach party, you gotta have some water. Set up the beach party near a pool or arrange for a kiddies pool. Throw in some inflatable beach balls and watch your guests go wild in the water.
Fill in small plastic buckets with inexpensive play sunglasses, shovel, small bottle of suntan lotion, or some colorful seashell candies and place them near the trees.
If you are selecting the Hawaiian beach theme, then you can use flower garlands as party decorations and give the guests Hawaiian leis to wear. A beach garland made of flip flops, clear plastic bottles with notes inside, sand dollars, and children's sunglasses can be hung in the doorways or along the walls.
A great item to use for an outdoor beach party are tiki torches which, when lit up, lend a great ambiance to the place.
So what are you waiting for? Go crazy with your beach party decoration ideas and throw in some beach games to add to the fun. Most importantly, ENJOY the party!
