Planning a Party on the OBX
The Outer Banks is a great place to get away for a party or special event! The scenic beauty makes it calm and relaxing. The wide variety of activities means there will be something fun for the whole group!
Put out Plenty of Festive Decorations
Easy, festive, and useful decorations will add an extra element of “fun” to your party! Here are our suggestions:
- Colorful beach balls, frisbees, and hula hoops that can also be used for entertainment.
- Instead of plastic table cloths, use brightly colored beach towels that guests can use or keep.
- Add some sea shells and inflatable palm trees to stick with the beach theme.
- At night, create table top tiki torches to complement your bonfire.
Provide Plenty of Refreshments
- Keep guests hydrated with a portable beach cooler full of bottled water, or provide pitchers of ice water infused with fresh fruit flavors!
- Stir up some Aloha Party Punch using pineapple juice, ginger ale, Hawaiian Punch, and sherbet.
Have Some Fun!
Make sure there are plenty of games and activities to keep guest entertained and interacting with each other!
- Set up pool noodles as gutters and bottles filled with colorful sand as a beach bowling alley!
- Have plenty of water balloons and squirt guns for water fun.
- We’ve also got beach bikes and all the water sports equipment you’ll need to keep your party going.
