Throwing a Shipwrecked Island Party Makes The Most of Summer DIY Room Decor
Summer DIY Room Decor – Instead of feeling sad when the end of summer comes, I say it’s party time! Instead of feeling like your boat ran aground at the end of summer, you can have a late summer soirée that is fun for the whole family … maybe even the whole neighborhood!
If the idea of a party is the same as walking on a board and jumping into a dark abyss, consider me a savior of your life! I will guide you through the process of putting together a party using my simple formula to create an unforgettable event. If we have divided the details of your summer party into six unforgettable elements, you can sail smoothly to an experience that your guests will appreciate in the coming summer. Ahoy friend!
Element 1 – Themes, moods and colors: Implement your theme in everything you do
Every party starts with a great topic! Host a Carrion Island Party at the end of your summer! Is it a sinking island party? Well, it’s not a Luau island, though a Luau-style party can certainly be part of the celebration. This is not a pirate party, although some of the pirates present could be a little fun, and this is not a pirate party, although you want to have a lot of sand and shells in your decorations. Imagine a desert island inhabited by a group of ragged exiles hoping to be saved, and you get a picture.
When creating a theme for this party, I found it helpful to use my “imagination board” for the “brainstorming” exercise. The Imagination Board is a large dry eraser board that gives you plenty of space to write and allows a free flow of ideas. First I wrote the name of my topic “Shipwrecked Island” in the middle of the board and then I wrote everything that came to my mind like a boat, a sail, a treasure, a beach, a beach, shells, pants, one Chest, a mosquito net, a fishing net, palm trees, flowers, coconuts, fish and crabs. Then I thought of all the great films, TV shows and music related to shipwrecks, islands and outcasts like “Titanic”, “Lost”, “Swiss Family Robinson”, “Castaway,” Survivor “, the theme song from “Gilligan’s Island”, and songs by Jimmy Buffet and Bob Marley. I use these ideas as inspiration for my invitations, decorations, special menus and drinks, activities and special details.
Element 2 – Invitations: Invite them
If you are somewhere on a desert island and need help, you can write a message in a bottle and throw it into the sea in the hope that someone will get your SOS. This is a fun and simple idea, as there are many places where you can find bottle-shaped invitation kits both online and in stationary craft stores, or where you can make your own using original glass bottles.
Most craft kits contain paper, but if you don’t like the choice of paper, you can choose your own. Start your invitation with a nice opening sentence on your topic. Something like: “Come stranded for a while” (from my brainstorming exercise). This opening line sets the tone for the party and lets people know they’re happy. Be sure to state who, what, where, when and why. Encourage guests to wear ragged clothing, their best-wasted clothing, to give parties and other authentic layers a comfortable and casual feel. Add flowers to the inside of the bottle by adding a little sand and a few tiny shells. Finish the invitation with a decorative thread that is just wrapped around the bottle neck. Put a shipping label on the end of the yarn and you’re done! You made a pleasant invitation that will make people get lost for a while!
