Whenever I plan decorations for a party, I always start by sitting down with a pen & paper and brainstorming for words that remind me of the theme. For example, a beach party makes me think of words like sand, water, surf, beach ball, fish, sand pails, sun, etc. It’s a great place to start when thinking of party decorations, activities and menu.
Decoration ideas for a beach-themed party include:
- Grass table skirts
- Sand pails for food, drinks or even upside down as small serving tray
- Inflatable palm trees and beach balls
- Colorful balloons
- A variety of beach toys in a large plastic storage bin
- Water balloons
- Plastic sand molds filled with crackers and chips
In addition to the pictured ideas from Moms & Munchkins, some other menu ideas for a beach party include:
- Licorice labeled as “pool noodles”
- Blue pop labeled as “ocean water”
- Fresh fruit kabobs
- Small sand pails filled with dried fruit trail mix or chips
- Rice Krispie treats in starfish shapes
- Gummy fish
- Sliders (if you’ll have access to a BBQ)
With a beach location, there are so many great ways to keep the kids entertained. In addition to the ideas featured in these pictures from Moms & Munchkins, party activities could include:
- A beach scavenger hunt with treasures hidden in the sand
- Water toys and playing in the water
- A walk to the beach ice cream shop for treats
- Water balloons (but don’t forget to pick up your mess!)
Many of the supplies that you used for decor and activities in the party could also be used as favors like sand pails and water toys.
Additional ideas for a beach themed favor bag include:
- Gift certificates for an ice cream shop
- Flip flop sandals
- Water squirters
- Fish gummy candies
- Beach balls
