Throwing a Beach Party in Your Backyard
Summer is here to stay for a while — and when the sun is hot and the days are long, you’ll find yourself daydreaming about the golden sand, crashing waves and crisp, salty water of the beach. There’s nothing you and your family enjoy more in the summer than spending a week, a weekend or even a day down by the ocean, building sandcastles, sunbathing, splashing in the water and enjoying boardwalk food — but not every summer offers the opportunity for a beach getaway.
Tips for Your Backyard Beach Party
Maybe you’re too busy with work, or a vacation isn’t in the budget, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some beachy summer fun right at home. This summer, bring the beach to your backyard by throwing a themed party complete with fresh water, beach games and delicious dishes. Looking for ideas to make your beach bash perfect? Here are some creative ways to build your backyard beach setting:
Set Up Slip n’ Slides or Sprinklers: Incorporate some authentic aquatic fun into your party and make it kid-friendly by setting up sprinklers around the lawn or laying out a slip n’ slide. Both kids and adults will have a blast chasing each other through the water, cooling off and sliding around without a care. It’s an extra dose of fun you can’t even find at the beach.
Get Cool by the Pool: The fact that you can’t test out the salty waves doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy swimming, sunbathing and cooling down by the water. If you have a pool in your backyard, it’s a built-in setting to sit back, relax, swim or float to your heart’s content. Plus, you won’t have to worry about washing that salt out of your hair.
Lay Your Beach Towels on the Sand: To channel those beach vibes, pour some sand around your pool or on your patio, grab your swimsuit and set out your beach towels to sunbathe in style. Who says you can’t get a beach tan at home? Just make sure you grab your sunscreen.
Break out the Beach Balls: Looking for an extra beach activity to get everyone involved and break a sweat before swimming? Set up a volleyball net and some sand and invite your guests to participate in a game, or blow up some beach balls and play kickball and catch. It’s not a beach bonanza without a good game of ball.
Build a Bonfire: When evening comes, building a bonfire is the perfect way to enjoy some beach-themed downtime with your friends and family. Grab some roasters and make s’mores in the summer night air.
