Whether you’re a jet-setting couple or a beach-loving teen, we are absolutely loving the idea of a beach theme for your wedding, bat/bar mitzvah, Sweet 16 or party. You can showcase this theme in the hot summer months or in the winter – when if our feet can’t be in the sand, our heads and hearts certainly are! Using summertime decorations like sand, beach balls, starfish, and sea shells are all fun – not to mention inexpensive – ways to incorporate this theme. The traditional nautical color scheme of white and navy is popular, while including a bright pop of color such as coral or turquoise can really make your decor stand out.
Here are 10 ideas we’re loving for your beach theme!
Now that the warm weather is almost here, we’re sure you’ll be attending, and maybe even hosting (!) some outdoor events! Here are 6 of our favorite inspirations for an al fresco wedding, Bar or Bat Mitzvah or any type of party!

The Sands at Atlantic Beach (pictured above and below) is a premiere beach-front venue on Long Island, and a perfect option for your next outdoor event! While the interior of the space is gorgeous, you can also set up a tent on the beach. The only thing more fun than dancing is dancing barefoot on (or near) the sand! READ MORE ......→
