10 Ideas for a Beach Theme Mitzvah, Wedding or Party

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!
