Nautical theme parties are a great way to celebrate all that is New England! There are plenty of fun nautical and sea theme decorations to help make your party perfect. Pair your decor with traditional clambake foods for a truly authentic experience. Clambakes are known to be a social custom in most coastal towns and cities throughout New England.
If you are not sure where to start with your nautical theme decor, here are some traditional and contemporary nautical event trends to include at your event!
- Whether they are big or small, sailboats can be displayed anywhere! Rent a large reinforced sail boat and use it to present your raw oyster bar or take small models and use them as decor on your tables.
- Nautical wooden buoys are something you will see throughout the New England seacoast, especially on Cape Cod. When hosting your party, hang these items on your tent poles or over an entryway. Or place clean buoys on table tops to add color and dimension to your food presentations.
- Seashells are lovely, inexpensive accent pieces. Fill clear cylinders and other pieces of glass with pretty shells and sea-glass to create simple and elegant centerpieces.
- Looking to break away from the traditional and make your clambake more elegant? Ditch the checked linens and opt for a more luxe blue options with texture and sparkle.
- Add lush flowers – anywhere you can! Blues and whites pair beautifully with a pop of color, or even by themselves.
- Bold fabric accents, like chevrons or stripes, in nautical flag colors, add an upscale and contemporary freshness to your clambake. Create a nautical clambake by using colors like bright yellow, navy blue and bold red.
