Surf’s up… summer days at the beach

During the summer, my Family loves to spend time at the beach. I guess we are spoiled with the Southern California weather, that pretty much anytime is a good day to hit the sand and the pacific ocean blue waters. This past May we celebrated my son’s 4th birthday party with a family picnic at the beach. Here are some super easy DIY party decor ideas that you can use anytime when surf’s up.

The party table decor was simple, but fun and colorful, keeping the color scheme to green, blue, with yellow and orange accents. The table was dressed with white and blue table cloth and layered with a green fish net and a paper straw skirt.

The food was displayed on plastic tubs for the chips, metals tins to hold the marshmallows pops and fruit skewers and a wood tray to elevate the mini cake and cupcakes. Party printables were added as stickers in the chips mini bags, trays and food labels.

We added a DIY surfboard sign to add to this surf’s up decor. It was made out of carton and cut into shapes of large and small oval shape like surfboard. Other pieces were cut into 90 degrees triangles to glue it as the board fin. With a pencil I softly draw the design and then splashed with acrylic paint in different colors. Then hot glue each surfboard keeping the large in the center and the smaller ones to each side. Giving this beach sign a 3D effect. Then we added at the arrow shape color cards stock with the words beach and snack and direct our guest to the right direction.

As party favors, some summer essentials items like frisbees, beach sandals, and water bottles, were a hit.

All the party items decor can be found at your local Michael’s and Dollar tree store, making of this party a fun, personalized and inexpensive option for any celebration. My little one sure enjoyed his day at the beach.

I know most of you are preparing to be back at school, but try to squeeze in at least one more trip to the beach. Happy summer! Enjoy…
