How to Throw a Beach Party
Beach parties are a fresh and inventive way to have a party. Here is a
guide for preparation for a beach bash.
1Venue. What beach will it be at? Check out all your local beaches and
look for the best beach. Ideal beaches should be fairly close, free of
sticks and driftwood (Unless you plan to have a bonfire)and clean water.
Go to the beach yourself and plan out where your party will be. Remember
to get a permit if it's going to be a huge party.<
2Time. Evening, Noon or Morning? This affects your catering as well, so
make sure it's a time people wouldn't have eaten yet.
3Age group. Are your grandparents or teenagers coming? Arrange with
friends if there are children are coming? If kids are coming, make sure
the party isn't too late.
4Food. Fresh, juicy fruits like watermelon and mango and barbecues are
the best way to go for a beach. Make sure you have lots of drinks, chips
5Design your invitations. The possibilities are endless. Palm trees,
surfboards, beach balls, and waves are just a few ideas. Be creative!
6Make sure your invites have phone numbers and addresses on them.
7Organize an caterer. Will it be a bring your own, yourself making the
food or professional catering?
8Set off to the beach about 2-3 hours before the party. Don't forget
9Set up and make a playlist for your stereo.
10Bring out snacks when people arrive and start the barbecue.
11Set up games if you have any.
12Make sure you bring spare towels.
13Make sure the party is long so it can be fun.
14Don't forget the boat and bathing suit.<
Be aware of early guests.
If you have an iPod, try to buy an "iPod Amp", just like a guitar amp,
but with an iPod dock. Great sound, portable, and range from cheap ($100)
to expensive ($850).
Make sure no one who is drunk drives.
Beware of rip tides.
Don't be so wild that the police have to come.
