We love great party decoration ideas! Besides giving any party atmosphere, party decorating ideas can get you thinking creatively which always turns out not only to be fun, but to personalize your party and make it yours.

Decorating for a beach party theme or luau is all about adding bright colors. Red, yellow, orange and lime green are a good place to begin and using streamers, balloons, confetti  and theme based decorations keep the party festive.

Add to table tops:

  • Candles
  • Sea Shells
  • Netting
  • Starfish
  • Mini Surfboards
  • Mason Jars

You can use different colored table cloths or just white ones, adding a fruit dish or colorful candy dish as a centerpiece. And don’t forget accessories such as tiki torches, lanterns, umbrellas for the drinks, grass table skirts and flowers!

Here are some more great decorations to choose from!
