This time of year there is no better backdrop for a party than the beach. However, even if you are miles from the shore you can take some of these ideas to capture the casual summery nature of a beach side fete for your next gathering.
String summery pom poms over a low table where beachy pillows act as chairs.
Pin wheels and tulle make this celebration look breezy and light.
Laterns, pillows and picnic blankets add to the laid back beach side theme.
Flags take advantage of the wind and will add lightness to any gathering.
Big banana plants on your table are an easy way to bring the beach to your back yard.
Twinkle lights scattered about will recreate beach side light even when you set a table on your front porch.
Nothing says water’s edge like a boat, so come on fill one up and use it as a self serve bar or hang it over your dinning table or just turn it into a seat.
Flowy fabric can lighten any atmosphere.
