Decorating Ideas For a Beach Bonfire

Come Party With Me: Beach Bonfire — The Look

The key to a successful beach bonfire is to plan ahead. Think of every variable that could happen and be prepared for it. Pack your car with blankets, chairs, a portable table, cooler, and grill. Don't forget everything you need for cooking like matches, bottle openers, wood, and charcoal. For easy access, put the food in a separate cooler; nonperishables can go in reusable totes. Place the items you will need to use immediately upon arrival at the beach in the trunk last — they will be removed first. Keep bowls, cutlery, servingware, and napkins organized. Pour the punch into a durable pitcher with a lid and store plastic glasses in a handy spot nearby. When you make it to the shore, set everything up, and let the celebration begin!
