Summer is still many months away. But that should not stop you from hosting a beach-themed party. Be it a birthday, a wedding, or any type of get-together, your beach-themed event needs lots of DIY details. The following are fantastic places to start. We cover here food, tablescape ideas, and many more. Hope you like them!

1 Beach Ball Photo Backdrop

Beach Ball Photo BackdropHow festive! As you can see, these are paper lanterns that have been painted to look like beach balls. They were then tied and attached to a piece of fabric for a beautifully beach-y photo backdrop. Fun, right? This particular DIY will take a long time to tackle but the results will give you precious photos.


2 Glass Ball Placeholder

Glass Ball PlaceholderThis is probably one of the more beautiful placeholders I've ever wanted to DIY. Doesn't it look gorgeous? The great thing about this is that it's really quite easy to make. You also will likely not spend too much if you happen to have a lot of knick-knacks from previous beach outings. Simply fill Christmas tree ornaments with sand and the knick-knacks, seal with a cork, and then add name of guest.
