Cowabunga! Surf's Up!

Cowabunga is a slang word from the 1960s surfer culture, used as an expression of exhilaration when riding the waves.

Have Surfer-inspired fun. Beachcomber tank tops, shirts, shorts, wet suites, swimsuits, bikinis, sandals, beachcomber hats, surfer dude wigs and a laid-back attitude make for excellent fun, whether or not you can hang ten.

The key to pulling off a coordinated event: Evoke your theme throughout the affair. Whether that theme is as general as a season or a feeling, or as specific as a special flower, it should be the subtle thread that ties everything together. Your location, invitations, flowers, menu, cake, and favors should all cleverly reflect one common concept. Then, get as creative as you can!

Never underestimate the power of music to set the tone for your party. Dig out the old '60s surf band albums. You'll almost feel the warm ocean breeze if the sounds of the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, The Ventures, Dick Dale, and The Safaris are filling your backyard. Make sure to play some of the great car songs too. Have a nostalgic surf party by hiring an authentic Beach Boys band.

Have a showing of one of the old Beach Party Movies with Annette & Frankie like: "Beach Party", "Beach Blanket Bingo", "Muscle Beach Party", or "How to Stuff a Wild Bikini". Or use a Surfer movie like "Ride the Wild Surf" with Fabian & Tab Hunter. For a teen girls party use "Gidget" with Sandra Dee & James Darren. Who can forget Gidget, Moondoggie & the Big Kahoona. If you have a big screen TV, play a Surfer Movie in the background to create atmosphere.

The Invitations:

Surf Boards

Surf Boards

Announce your event on bright Mango orange paper. This colorful card is perfect for any number of occasions. Comes with Cream envelopes.

OR

Cut out surfboard shapes from colorful card stock and write the details for the party on them. Attach the cards to inexpensive beachcomber hats and hand deliver them to your guests. Say something like:



Cowabunga, Surf’s up!
Grab your wet suits and boards,
Pull on your sandals,
And don your beachcomer shorts & shirts;
Throw on this beachcomer hat
The Big Kahoona says,
Get here by any means dude!
We're throwin' a Beachcomer Bash!
Complete with all the fixin's;
We hope you can make it -
It'll be a fun Ride on the Wild Surf!

Location:



When sending out your invitations, make a note that there will be a Beachcomer dress code: Beachcomer tank tops, shirts, shorts, wet suites, swimsuits, bikinis, sandals etc.

The Decorations:

This is the perfect party to hold on the beach or outside around the pool. Gather up your surfboards and you'll be ready to party.

Remember your tables provide a very large surface area and covering them with themed or colorful tablecover is the fastest way to change the look and feel of your party area. Add place settings using a combination of themed and solid colored tableware for a designer look.

Tuck a napkin into a pair of  sunglasses, great table accent and a fun favor.

 If you don't have a beach or pool, create a true beachcomer atmosphere with fun props.

Transform a room into a large beach scene using a photo mural, standees, and scene setters. They make an excellent photo background.

Make your own balloon palm trees.

A blue tarp placed on the ground (water) with a folded up ironing board (surfboard) makes a great backdrop for souvenir photos. You can drape blue crepe paper strips up behind the ironing board to look like guests are actually caught in a wave. Make sure you fold the ironing board up so it lays flat and no one gets hurt. If your ironing board is not that pretty, drape a towel or sheet over it and tuck the edges under.

Enlarge surfer pictures, glue onto poster board and set around your party area.

For additional decorations, favors and tableware go to the Luau, Tropical, and Hawaiian Party Section

Surfer Party Activities:

Build Sandcastles

If you're fortunate to have access to the beach, this activity is for you! Divide your guests into teams and see which group can build the best castle. If your not near the beach try one of the following ideas: filling a couple kiddie pools with sand or lay a sheet of poly vinyl out in your lawn. Bring in a truckload of inexpensive sand and have lots of beach toys ready for a sand castle building contest.

Beach Volley Ball - Old time favorite, great for your beach theme party, hang up your net and have a game of beach volley ball using Inflatable Beach Balls .

Play tried-and-true pool games like Marco Polo, Tug of War, water volleyball, and water basketball

Play volleyball using two sheets and water Balloons. Each team member holds a side of a large sheet. Each team tries to lob the water balloon over the net to the other side. The other team tries to catch the balloon using their sheet and without getting wet! This game is great for older kids and teens!

Garden-hose limbo, a hula hoop contest, or beach blanket bingo are activities that have provided laughs for decades and are still great ideas for this theme party!

After dark, settle the crowd down with a bonfire and a sing-along.

The Food & Beverages:

Serve "easy to prepare" summer fun beach food. Grill hot dogs and hamburgers or go a little bit more festive with crab legs and melted butter! Add some cole slaw, baked beans, potato salad, corn on the cob, fruit kabobs or a watermelon bowl filled with the season's freshest fruit, and lots of munchies. Large Pails And Shovels  make terrific serving buckets.

For dessert, serve frozen bananas on a stick dipped in chocolate, snow cones, and a delightful summer berry "fruit pizza".

If the party is for kids, serve their food in individual beach pails. Use a paint pen to write each child's name on a bucket, and fill each pail with a juice box, wrapped hot dog, goldfish crackers, fruit kabob and a beach ball! They will never forget the "best ever" backyard party hosted by your family!

Fill a wheelbarrow, or metal tub with ice and load it with plenty of soda and bottles of water. Sip down your cool summer beverages in
Hurricane Glasses  or Coconut Cups . Use with cool drink mixes like: Pineapple Passion Fizz  or Pina Colada Mix. As an alternative, offer your guests daiquiris and fruit smoothies - complete with mini umbrellas.

Don't forget to stock up on lots of ice - plan on approximately 1 pound per adult guest for the party!

Have wooden pineapple bowls sitting around with individually wrapped Life-Savers™ candy for those sudden sugar attacks!

Finish the night off with a "Surf Board Cake" - it's sure to float you right to the top for creativity! Don't forget to serve this one up with a mound of refreshing ice cream!

Make cupcakes and add surfboard picks (available at craft stores) to each cupcake.
