Seaside Celebration {party decor inspiration}

December 27, 2011 by

Goodbye 2011. Hello 2012.

This time of the year is summer holidays in South Africa and most people (including myself) are heading to the seaside to enjoy the sunshine, celebrating the end of 2011 and welcoming 2012.

I’ve put together some inspiration for those of you planning a party on or close to the beach, be it just a private and intimate affair with that special person in your life or be it a big party with your friends!

Enjoy this time of reflecting on the past year, spending time with family and friends, celebrating what is and what is to come and the lovely sunshine!

PS: I’ve added some vintage images as reflections of past fun to spice things up!

    Stunning! Stunning! Stunning! Takes me straight to my happy holiday place. I wasn’t fortunate enough to go to the sea this holiday but these images take me to the tranquil place my mind goes when on holiday! Thanx :o)
