When planning a boat party, it’s hard to resist a fun nautical theme. Here are five playful prop ideas to delight guests and up your nautical cred. Do all five to reach nautical nirvana.
Boat Drink Holder
From nautical glassware (check out Festive Frog for eclectic vintage finds), to drink holders shaped like a boat, incorporate nautical into your food and drink presentation.
Nautical Photo Booth
Who doesn't love a photo booth? Go all out nautical with a captain's wheel, captain's hat...even a fake seagull. Pictured: an actual photo booth set-up aboard our vessel. Check out Fotio for cool, vintage open-air photo booths.
An alternative to a formal photo booth set-up, just grab these paper cutout props for snapping fun photos anywhere on the boat. Bonus - use them on the upper deck for a built-in, beautiful city backdrop!
Give your guests captain hats and see the party transformed! Nothing says "nautical party" like captain-hat wearing guests. Instagram, get ready.
Don't forget to say "thank you" to your guests with a parting gift! Ideas abound for nautical inspired favors, like these anchor bottle openers.
