If you have a large patio or picnic table, create a runner or centerpiece with sand. Use a sturdy, plastic tablecloth that can easily be cleaned and trail sand through the center of the table from end to end or spiral it in the center of the table. Scatter a variety of seashells throughout the sand. Be sure to purchase a bag of unused sand and keep eating areas clear, of course.

Tea Light Shells
Eat your meal by candlelight! Place small tea lights inside shells down the center of the table. Use unscented tea lights or use this spot for citronella to keep insects away.

Flower Garlands
Decorate your outdoor spaces with artificial flower garlands to add a Hawaiian luau look to the party.

Have a Ball
Scatter beach balls and beach toys of various sizes and types around your yard so everyone can have some fun before it’s time to eat. Nothing can help us get out of the doldrums of the workweek like feeling we’re on vacation can — even if it’s just for a dinner.

Island Inspiration
Set the mood by bringing a CD player outside to play laid back, island-inspired tunes.

Capture the Memories
Make it feel even more like a vacation with disposable cameras for guests. If you have a pool or are able to set up a sprinkler, capture all the wet and wild fun with disposable waterproof cameras. Give out several so you don’t miss any of the memories!
