If it’s the dead of winter or the middle of summer, the idea of a tropical beach vacation is always appealing. Bora Bora, Hawaii, Fiji, Cozumel, St. Bart’s – they all bring to mind hours spent relaxing on the beach with your toes in the sand and an ice cold, fruity drink in hand. A tropical retreat is perfect for a pre-wedding getaway, honeymoon, or anniversary gift, and it also makes a fabulous theme for a bridal shower, engagement party or just entertaining year-round.
Your guests will be transported to the islands with a menu of delicious tropical inspired food and drinks:
Exotic fruit plate (guava, papaya, star fruit, mango, pineapple)
Seafood Salad or Ceviche
Grilled Shrimp Kebabs with Mango Salsa
Caprioska (my personal favorite!)
Most of these drinks are also just as tasty without the alcohol too!
And what I love about a tropical entertaining theme is that the décor can be fun and a bit kitschy, totally retro and stylish, or simply beautiful and beachy. Whatever your personal style is, we’ve rounded up some fab ways to recreate the feel of a sunny haven at home.
