Beach Party Theme

Discover Britain’s best seaside destination – in your garden!

This summer why not plan your own private beach party – here’s how....


When it comes to the summer, it can seem as though everyone is jetting off.  But actually it’s during the next few months when the weather is at its best, going to the seaside is just one of the many things that makes the summer great.

Have you thought about creating your own sunny paradise in your back garden and inviting your family and friends to your own private beach party?  With themed party accessories and treats, your party will make a real splash with your guests.


Step One - Book your guests

Book your guests on their holiday beach party destination.  We have thought of some great ideas for beach themed party invites:

Distribute luggage labels

-        Send seaside postcards

-       Deliver a message (invite) in a bottle


Step Two - Build your seaside destination

Raid the garden shed for all your beachwares, windbreaks, deckchairs, loungers, buckets and spades, umbrellas and of course sun cream.

For the sea, fill up the paddling pool and throw in a few seaside themed toys; plastic fish, toy boats – perfect for splashing fun.

You definitely need a sandy beach, so top up the sand pit; it doesn’t matter on the size, but make sure it is big enough for guests to enjoy building sandcastles.  Plus, scatter some pebbles and shells - perfect for adding the finishing touches to the very best sandcastle sculptures.


Step Three – Food

For a traditional seaside theme you can’t beat firing up the BBQ.  Food is one of the most important ingredients of any themed bash.  For great BBQ recipes search online, you will discover hundreds of great flavours.


Step Four – Entertainment

Keep your younger guests entertained with some seaside fun themed party games:

-      Instead of a potato sack race, have a mermaid or merman race

-      Play balloon volleyball

-      Try out musical beech towels instead of musical chairs


This summer become one of Britain’s best beaches and enjoy playing in the sunshine.
