Nautical Theme Party Decorations

Looking for nautical theme party decorations for your next party? Well there are plenty of places to find them and some great sub-themes within the nautical theme that you can consider. In this article I’ll discuss a few of them.

Actually, nautical themed parties can vary significantly depending on what direction you want to take it. For example, here are some sub-themes to consider:

  • Caribbean Cruise theme – steel drum music, reggae, Jamaican food, etc.
  • Pirate’s booty – skull and crossbones everywhere, treasure chests, parrots, peg legs, etc.
  • Tiki Island – tiki torches, luau, coconuts, sea shells, grass skirts, etc.
  • Hawaiian party – Dugout canoes, pig roast, fire twirlers, Polynesian decorations, etc.
  • Yachting – Deck shoes, polo shirts, white pants, anchors on everything, you get the idea.

Nautical themes are great for parties, especially in the summer months and even better if you can actually get on the water. Most people love being on a boat and with all the different options you can always be unique.

Some of the better places to get party decorations for nautical parties are the national decoration/paper goods stores like Party City. Regardless of where you live, there should be a national or regional chain fairly close by that carries all types of decorations and novelties for parties just like this.

If, however, you can’t find anything locally than there are many options on the internet. Simple Google searches can help a lot and are probably how you found this page. Some specific sites where I’ve found great stuff are eBay, Oriental Trading and Amazon.

Don’t limit yourself to just searching for nautical ideas, use some of the sub-themes I listed above to help come up with some great, unique ideas for your nautical party. Use a little creativity and people will be talking about your party for a long time.

Don’t forget the food! No matter how great your decorations are, if the food is not also appropriate for the theme it just won’t be a great nautical party. Be sure to serve seafood and other similar options. Fruit is also good. And then complete the party with appropriate beverage options like rum or punch and you’ll be good to go.

Use all these ideas and your party will be great because of much more than your nautical theme party decorations.
