After going to the beach this summer, I can’t wait to host a nautical or beach themed party!
A nautical party can be casual and easy to put together at the last-minute! Navy and red are the perfect colors for this type of bash.
- For easy table decorations, fill clear vases or small buckets with sand, beach pebbles or shells. Add candles to the vases and embellish with nautical themed paper, burlap or shells.
- Place settings make a big splash when you put utensils in jars with red and navy bandanas for napkins.
- Stick with the theme by serving small bags of goldfish crackers for the kids or fun sushi sandwiches!
