Surf Party Table Linens

You have many options to create an festive surf inspired look. Your choice will ultimately come down to a combination of what your room looks like and how daring you feel. Party Idea Pros suggests scrolling through the BBJ Linen event photos to choose a look that you find particularly attractive and then order the appropriate linens. Don’t forget to include your place card table, your gift table, buffet tables, and any ceremonial tables when determining your linen count. Also, if you chose to use more ornate linens, do not use them for the cocktail hour; they will have a greater impact as your guests enter the dining room.

BBJ Linen

If you want to save some money, use a classic solid linen or most venues will supply complimentary white or cream linens. Either will work since they provide a neutral palette that will compliment any surf decor. Likewise, if you are hosting a surfing theme party at home, any linen color will work. Just plan your table decor around your linen options. Place mats can also work, and to tell you the truth, individual sheets of scrap booking paper work great and are adorable. Choose any solid color paper or choose one of Party Idea Pros recommended prints. If you are feeling creative and have lots of time, you can even create a layout highlighting your guest of honor. Another option is to use your place mats as place cards by creating a page for each of your guests.Rather than make your own placemats, just purchase these surf print place mats.

Surf Party Centerpieces

Create your own Centerpieces.

Pour sand in the middle of table. Place the palm tree off center on the sand and the sculpture in the center.

These unique water sports sculptures will make your event stand out. The artist captures just about every sport imaginable in bright, vibrant colors. Have fun choosing a different sculpture for every table. After your party, either present family members and special friends with figures they will relate to or donate them to charitable organizations for their silent fundraisers. Be sure to let the guest of honor choose his or her favorite to keep for the memory. Prices vary.

Surf Party Place Cards

Hanging Surfboard Place Cards

This place card concept will take a bit of work, nothing to difficult, but is worth the time! Display your place cards by hanging from nails on a weathered sheet of plywood. Hose down plywood and let dry in the sun. If necessary rub in dirt. Repeat a few times for the desired weathered look. Hammer in nails about 4 – 5 inches apart, leaving 6 -8 inches between rows. Staple surfboard party lights around the plywood to add color and fun.
