Beach Party Planning in January

There is only so much snow, slush, and frigid cold that a person can take! The winter doldrums set in and most people start fantasizing about a trip to a warm and beachy place. If a budget, work schedule, or other life committments don't allow for such a splurge, consider having a beach party theme celebration complete with beach volley ball, tropical drinks, and festive beachy snacks. This is also a great winter party theme for anyone with a winter birthday and is the perfect teen birthday theme--a virtual summer getaway without the hassle of flying anywhere!

Indoor beach party ideas:

  • When you sit down to do your beach party planning, take into consideration what the best venue would be. If you have an indoor space at your home that's large enough to set up all the decorations, then there's no need to rent a space. Other party venue ideas include hosting it at local indoor pool or a Mexican or tropical-inspired restaurant.
  • Decorate the space with beach balls, balloons, straw streamers, tropical flowers (real or fake), and even sand if you're up for the mess.
  • Menu ideas for your winter beach party include coconut-crusted shrimp, kabobs, tortilla chips and salsa, corn and pepper salad, and frozen tropical drinks, lemonade, ice tea, and s'mores for dessert!
  • Set up lounge and beach chairs throughout the space and let everyone lounge around while relaxing in the "sunshine."

There aren't many indoor party ideas for the cold winter months, so throw a beach party as a kid birthday theme this year and give them a birthday they'll never forget!
