How to Throw a Beach Party {without a beach}

We have a client called Ocean Avenue.  Their catch phrase: "Find your ocean."  So naturally when we did a reception for their clients, we threw a beach party (without a beach).

We served some fun savory appetizers.  We also created custom labels which include our client's logo.   
We mixed beachy table decorations in with the food.
We also served a "Costal Snack Blend" that included dried mango, young coconut, dried cranberries and blueberries, white chocolate chips, almonds and cashews.  A snack in a cup is another great way to add color to your table.
Is there anything better than a lovely display of deserts?  We brought out client's color scheme into play with aqua chevron-print table runners, agua votives, custom labels, and a variety of sweets.

It's hard to incorporate your color scheme into the food, instead add color with some fun colored sweets like rock candy, gumballs, and foil-wrapped candy.

We created custom signs for the tables, and scattered little sea shells among the votives.

The Tidal Wave Lemonade recipe we created was a huge hit! 

Live music makes any party better.  We hired local artist, Catherine Papworth.
It was a lot of fun!  We hope you throw a beach party... with or without a beach.
