Throwing parties can be fun if you know what you’re doing. You can play with different themes, maybe mix and match stuff to come up with cool designs and awesome decorations. One of the most popular themes today is Nautical, think anchors, ships and of course, the sea!
So, how do you decorate a nautical-themed party? For starters, you can combine something old and rustic, something refined and traditional. This should be a good start.
There are many things that you can use as decors for the party, including, but not limited to old woods, and weathered ply boards. Add buoys, hooks, ropes, some fisherman accessories, and navigational icons like a wheel and compass.
For a breezier ambience, keep things light and easy. How do people party at the beach? Use towels, and umbrellas, anchors and sailboats, ports and light houses.
The goal is to make your guests feel welcome and ready for the party. It’s really up to you to be creative so let your imagination run wild. Recycle old navigational tools and maritime items. Use them as decors, and backdrops.
Don’t just stop there, go all out by getting creative with the food. Obviously, you’ll need seafood. Search for recipes that can help you create not only delicious food, but aesthetically pleasing as well.
For the drinks, let your guests cool off by serving them cocktails with sea-inspired names. You need to come up with unique names that will really get their attention. Try looking for cocktail recipes to use for your party.
Hosting a party can be fun, but it can also be a lot of work. You will know that you did well if your guests had a blast and enjoyed the party. It’s not just the decors that matter, all the elements should blend well.
