Beach Party Ideas

Turn a summer get together into a relaxed Beach Party with our beach party ideas. The world is full of beaches so every beach party can have a slightly different twist.

Intriguing invitations which guests cannot refuse.

Venue and Decoration

Start by planning to hold a lot of the party outside and let the night sky be your ceiling. But take care to give guests somewhere to escape the great British Summer should it decide to rain.

Decorate the entrance area of your party. It really impresses and helps break the ice by giving everyone something to get chatting about. It makes a great photo opportunity for catching memories of your party by snapping guests as they arrive.

To give your garden atmosphere take care to provide safe outdoor lighting either in the form of flame torches or electric fairy lights widely available from garden centres.

Indoors try making the place feel like a beach hut with windows onto a tropical location. We have lots of scene setters here

Beach Party Food and Drink

Barbecue food is a must but can be a challenge if you have a lot of guests. You can prevent food poisoning and reduce the hassle by cooking things like chicken pieces in your conventional oven before finishing off over the coals.

Consider a cannibal hotpot which can be kept in the freezer to reduce preparation on the day.

Keep the theme of your beach party in mind as you pick out your menu and provide condiments or marinades to compliment the country or era.

We found this great BBQ recipe site which has masses of tasty suggestions in alphabetical order.

For sweet a juicy fruit salad and ice cream is perfect. Don't forget slices of fresh coconut and rum.

Island Touches add atmosphere
