Summer calls for flip flops, sand, cold beverages, and a trip to the beach. What other way is there to celebrate this weather than throwing a good ol’ beach party with family and friends? If you’re wondering how to throw an epic budget-friendly beach party, let us help you out.
Find a Venue
Of course, you’re partying at the beach, but you’d require a perfect venue for your event as well. Research party venues, locate what works for you, and start planning.
Choose a Theme
What’s a beach party without a theme? Beach tropical themes work the best for beach parties; buy pineapples, tiki torches, warm fairy lights, palm tree décor, bright colors, and good music.
Beach parties aren’t complete without food but glassware just doesn’t work. Buy disposable plates, cups, bowls, napkins, and straws so you don’t have to worry about washing later. Opt for recyclable options that are better for the environment as well.
You don’t have to go overboard while decorating your venue. Keep it simple and clean. Umbrellas, seashells, rocks, beach chairs, and bright prints are ideal.
Food comes later, but having something to nibble on is much needed. Prepare simple finger foods to keep the menu light and easy. Veggies, fruit salads, sandwiches, rice cakes, will keep the hunger at bay and let everyone move about and enjoy.
Partying triggers hunger, and you want to make sure there is enough food for everyone. Hot dogs are a classic option, let there be various garnishes, condiments, and dips to go along so people can choose what they want! You can also keep tacos, sliders, or burritos. Have some fruits to go along with the main dishes: watermelon, pineapple, mangoes.
Hot summer days call for cold drinks. Keep beer, fruity cocktails, or margaritas to quench that thirst. Aside from the alcohol, keep plenty of water bottles to ensure there’s water intake. BreakWater’s water bottle is an excellent option to always keep your water cold and with you.
Hype up the party with great music and some games. Beach volleyball, beer pong, and a bonfire will add a fun aspect to your gathering, indulging people to dance, party, and socialize.
A Shady Area
Set up umbrellas, mats, or chairs, and don’t forget to pack in sunscreen. Keep a pair of eco-friendly beach party sunglasses to keep away the sunlight from your eyes.
