"Bash At The Beach!"©


It's back to the beach for surf, sand and sun for this seaside soiree! While summer is the most likely time to have this party, what about holding it in December? Just think warm thoughts, put out some sun lamps, turn up the heat, and it won't matter if it's 20 below outside, you and your friends will want to catch this wave of fun!

You pick the spot--beachside, poolside, backyard or living room--here's the perfect plan for some surfside fun. One of the most popular themes of the day, it allows for easy, comfortable and casual garb, activities, refreshments and decor. Whether your event is for a personal or business occasion, this is sure to bring out the beach bum in your guests.
