It is always Summer in Sunny Singapore, so why not make the most of it by throwing a beach-themed party? There’s nothing more fun and carefree than the idea of refreshing cocktails and dancing the night away on a warm summer night with bright lit with fairy lights by the beach. Whether it is for children or adults alike, it is a sure-fire way to put everyone in a bright and festive mood. So grab your sunnies, beachwear and get the party rolling with our 5 beach-inspired party themes!
What brings more stoke than surfing? Liven up your next event by filling your space with all things related to this fun sport. Decorate your space with bright colors like yellows, oranges, and blues. Surfboard-shaped buntings, colorful nautical rope, and life buoys make unique wall décor. Surfboard centerpieces are also a fun conversation piece for the guests (or toys if it’s a children’s party!). And for the food? String colorful candies to look like surfer beads; create cookies in the shape of surfboards, fins, or waves; and serve colorful cocktails (or juice for the little ones) to match the happy vibe.
A luau is a traditional Hawaiian party that has come to be associated with hula dancing and music. For your luau-themed event, get your guests to come in Hawaiian shirts and grass skirts for an extra boost of fun. Prepare leis and hang them on each guest’s neck for added authenticity. You can also hand out flowers to put in girls’ hair. Dress up your table with a grass skirting, tiki masks, totem poles, and palm leaves, as well as colorful cups and plates. Finally, make your party extra memorable with classic luau activities, like hula dancing and fire dancing.
When you think tropical paradise, visions of sunset mojitos while sitting on a hammock under a coconut tree come to mind. But if you can’t bring the party there, then you can bring them to your party! Channel tropical paradise on your next event by creating the same relaxed and indulgent atmosphere. Start off your guests with cocktails infused with tropical fruits, garnished with resort-style paper umbrellas. Fill your space with tropical flowers, or even colorful paper flowers do the trick. Coconut details, palm trees, and suns are also staple décor items that are sure to bring the beach to your festivities.
“Under the Sea” themes are always a crowd favorite – and for good reason! With the wealth of wonders underwater, there’s no limit to how you can decorate and reinvent your party. Ditch Little Mermaid and company, and instead get inspiration from the colors and shapes of the underwater world. Decorate your tables with luminescent pinks and magentas inspired by corals. Hang blue drapes on the ceilings to create the feeling of floating in water or hang balloons to make it look like jellyfish. You can even customize your cake so it channels the deep blue. For kids, go for exciting creatures like sharks and dolphins when it comes to the food and décor. You can even throw in a viewing of favorites like Finding Nemo to complete the theme.
For an adult event that’s truly luxurious, create a beach resort environment for your party. This doesn’t mean dressing up your space to look like one. Instead, it involves adding elements to make it feel like one. For instance, hire professional massage therapists for the day and setup a spa room, complete with aroma therapy and candles. You can also hire service staff to welcome your guests with refreshing drinks and refill their glasses as needed. Get your guests to come in their chicest resort wear and serve up stylish cocktails right from a bar. And as for food, opt for a sit-down dinner to truly feel the height of lavishness. For party favors, you can also hand out spa-related items in a basket, such as essential oils, bath salts, and scented candles.
