It’s a shore thing! The beach is a special place. There’s nothing quite like a day at the beach to ease away stress, recharge your batteries and soothe your soul. Beach living is easy living. Meals are grab and go. Schedules are merely a suggestion, and make-up is optional. Read on to see how to throw a beach party so you can come as you are, and everyone is welcome.
Ever wished you could live at the beach? Now, you can with the world’s first beach entry fiberglass pool. Having one in your own backyard gives you the freedom to enjoy a day at the beach, seven days a week, with the convenience of a fridge and bathroom just inside the door. Landscapes and hardscapes can help create a sense of place at the beach too. And once you’re living on the beach, there’s no limit to how many different beach-themed parties you can throw. Easy beach party menus help you bring the shore to your door, whether it’s just a casual, weeknight dinner or a celebration with lots of friends. Where would you like to party this week?
Grouper, crab cakes and hush puppies are the de rigueur on Florida menus. Shrimp cocktail and ceviches will create the Florida beach mood too. Serve a chilled seafood buffet or blacken some grouper and throw it on the grill. For dessert, key lime is, of course, a must.
Beach pool parties should be casual and easy. Set up a make-your-own taco bar poolside at your beach entry pool with fresh pico de gallo, guacamole and cilantro to garnish. Scatter baskets of chips and salsa around the tables for easy noshing– then sit back and relax at the beach.
Tropical fruits like papaya, mango and guava paired with fresh grilled fish or jerk chicken, shrimp, pork or steak are the epitome of Caribbean cuisine, along with Jamaican-influenced dishes like red beans and rice. Throw some kabobs on the grill with a fresh fruit salsa and a side of rice and beans and your Caribbean beach party is ready to go.
Satays are everywhere in Thailand, including on the beach. They’re similar in style to the kabobs of the Caribbean, but they offer a completely different flavor profile. Take chicken, shrimp, pork or steak, marinate it in coconut milk and Asian spices for an hour or so, thread them onto wooden skewers (soaked in water first to avoid burning) and then throw them on the grill. Serve with a quick and easy peanut sauce on the side and maybe a little cool cucumber salad or noodle dish, and you have a deliciously authentic Thai dinner.
