READY TO REALLY ENCHANT YOUR PARTY WITH AN UNDER THE SEA THEME? HERE ARE SOME IDEAS AND PICTURES TO HELP!
Thinking about having a theme for your party or wedding? Themes do make it better and I strongly suggest doing it if you have the guts! So why not host a party that makes a splash? For those of you Back To The Future fans out there planning a party, maybe you remember the scene where Marty McFly had to get his future dad back online to dance with his future mom.
His success in doing so would mean that he would be born in the future, after messing things up in the past. Your success too can come from a tropical adventure party beginning with a few simple party supplies; balloons, fishing line and sandbag weights. Recently, I was the party DJ for a Senior Prom in the Albany NY area for Averill Park High School that took place at Birch Hill Catering in Kinderhook, NY. Talk about nailing the theme?
The good people on the Averill Park High School party planning committee were NOT OUT TO SEA on this event by any means.
They did an absolutely great job decorating for their “Under The Sea” One of the coolest party decoration accessories they had that I hadn’t seen before was a very simple thing.
BUBBLE BALLOONS ON FISHING LINES WITH SANDBAGS!
This idea is inexpensive and had a great effect. The bubble balloon lines were basically a string of different sized clear latex balloons, sandbagged down to look like bubbles floating upwards. AT the top of the helium-filled balloon strip, there was a large colorless balloon. Beneath that, the next balloon was a little smaller. The next one under that was even smaller and the one below that was very small. This decoration gave the effect that you often see in a fish tank with a stream of air bubble flowing upwards to the surface.
With countless strips sandbagged all over the dance floor as well as other places throughout the venue, it really felt like the guests were under water. Add some blue and green uplights and the fact that the hall has an interesting flowing curtained ceiling and the picture really came together.
MORE DEEP SEA DECORATION IDEAS…
Setting the scene with the bubble balloons, the tables also came into play laced the sea plates, napkins, and cups. Featuring marine-blue tableware with matching under the sea decorations. This ocean-themed decoration construct conjures up a feeling of romantic tropical seas, a cool sea breeze, and cool running waves on tropical murmuring shores. The hall was transformed into a virtual aquarium with colorful cut-out fish decoration and sea life assortments, elegant giant foil fish, seahorses, dolphins and starfish balloons which too, are relatively inexpensive. These drifting in the air party decorations really added to the under-water feel of desired theme.
DECORATIONS THAT ALSO ENTERTAIN THE GUESTS…
Each table also had a goldfish bowl in the center with a small LED light inside the bowl for an awesome keepsake. For birthday parties, the guests can be entertained with party games that double as decorations like shark pinatas, fish pinatas, and the like. Here are some more pictures o give you an idea of what you can do with a few balloons and your imagination.
