Whether it’s a wedding, a corporate event, a birthday party or just any excuse for a party, an enjoyable and fun theme is the place to start. There is no such thing as a cliché when it comes to a beach themed party. And what better place to transport your guests than the Caribbean? With its cheery vibe, foot tapping music and fresh cuisine, there’s no better way to make sure your party is a hit. If you are into event planning, we’ve dug up a few essential details to help you plan a party.
Ambience, props and decorations
A classic-chic Caribbean party relies heavily on its ambience. So you need to look into the details. You can begin with your invites. Even your email invites need to be well planned as it has to convey to your guest the dress code. Encourage guests to dress in keeping with your theme: casual attire like khakis and shorts, floral prints and beach hats. Moving onto your venue, be sure to pick a spacious location if the party is indoors, making room for a dance floor and allowing ample space for your decorations itself.
Coming to the props and decorations, there are many places that can supply these for hire. You can opt for authentic-looking palm trees, tiki torches, welcome signs, sea shells, prop boats, hula girl props, beach walkways and many more. Don’t forget the lights if it’s an after dark party.
The music is sure to be the essence of your party. And steeldrum music is a perfect fit for a Caribbean themed party. For decades now, we’ve played in special events across Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia. From upbeat numbers to greet your guests to relaxing tunes at the end of the night, we present excellent selections to fit the mood. Reggae, Calypso and Latin Jazz also good choices to simulate a Caribbean night.
In keeping with the tropical theme, the food should be light and flavorful too. Tropical fruit platters including pineapple and coconut, sea food like fish and shrimp, barbecued ribs, and rum and punch as beverages are a few good choices. Dessert too could be fruity concoctions like key lime pie.
With these key elements in place, you’ll find that a Caribbean party is easy to plan and is also one with which you simply cannot go wrong.
