Whether you’re at the actual beach or are just throwing a beach-themed party, it certainly is the right time of year. Hot days and warm nights make you feel like you live somewhere tropical, even when your only body of water is the bird bath in your front yard. Thanks to our columnists at Holidays Helper, we have an assortment of crafts, favors, and decorations for your party. Today, let us help you find some recipes to grace this party.
If your party is more of an adult-based crowd, a batch of beach gazpacho is sure to please. With mango and pineapple mingling with tomatoes and cucumber, it is sure to give a tropical feel. It also has the additional benefit of being cold, which can help cool your guests on a warm evening.
For a simple finger food that takes your guests to Hawaii, these meatballs are sure to do the trick! Although the team at Think Tasty prefers to make their your own meatballs, you’re welcome to buy the premade, frozen version. (However, it is so easy to make meatballs, we’re not sure why you don’t give it a try.) Then with ready meatballs, make the sauce, which is what gives the meatballs their island feel. Pineapple, soy sauce, and a handful of other ingredients turn them from an Italian appetizer to something much more beachy.
Here’s to a fabulous beach party! Feel free to leave a comment, and let us know what food you’re serving at your party.
