The Ultimate Beach Party: Snack Ideas

A beach party is a great idea for both adults and children and could be a great themed party for your next birthday. If you want to get the beach party theme down to a tee, after you have sorted costumes and decorations, snacks are a great way to incorporate the beach further into your party. There are many ways in which you can get creative with this theme, here are just a few ideas on how to make some beach inspired snacks.

Flip Flop Sandwiches

This is a really simple way to bring the beach to you! This is a beach themed party snack that anybody can make, and it can be made to your specific tastes. Sandwiches are relatively inexpensive, and you can create different sandwiches to keep everyone happy. You simply cut out sandwiches in the shape of flip flops and then use a vegetable to make the straps. See how they were done here for an idea of how to make your own.

Vegetable Boats

This is a great way to bring a health kick to your beach themed party and these vegetable boats look amazing! You can use a variety of different vegetables and different fillings to the boats, giving your guests plenty of choices while making your snacks look super cool. All you need is your favorite dips or spreads, cocktail sticks, and some vegetables. You can get as creative as you want with these and the sails can be made from anything that would work – be as creative as you like! Cheese would be a perfect choice for the sails, alongside the dips and vegetables.

Watermelon Beach Basket

If you want to serve some sweet fruits at your beach themed party, you can make this fit in with your theme perfectly by molding a beach basket from some watermelon. Simply cut the watermelon into a basket shape and scoop out the inside (which could be used for some delicious smoothies) and then fill the basket with fruit and other treats. You can also decorate the melon with a bow or with some mini cocktail umbrella sticks.

Starfish Themed Cookies

Starfish cookies are a relatively easy choice, but if you are good with your hands, you can make any kind of beach themed cookie you’d like. Simply make a butter cookie as you normally would but shape it into a starfish. You can even add the small details in afterward with some icing. If you want your beach party to continue long into the night or you want someone to do the hard work for you, Scottsdale Private Events have their very own tropical beach themed nightclub serving a variety of tropical and beach themed food and drinks.

When hosting a beach party, it is all about getting creative with your foods. You do not have to be the best cook in the world to make some cool snacks to serve; from sandwiches to starfish cookies, these can all add to your themed party and leave your guests in awe.
