March rings in Spring Break season, and for many families that week off of school means there will be a lot of time spent together — either at home, at a relative’s house or on vacation. If you’re looking for a fun and easy way to pass the hours, consider throwing a themed spring break movie party, no matter where you are!

Here are some ideas for decorations, attire and activities you could incorporate.

Decorations – The most important thing on this front is COLOR. After the dreariness of winter, pops of color are just what everyone needs as a pick-me-up. Consider:

  • Small beach buckets and pails as bowls for snacks, or put differently colors pails and shovels around as decorations
  • Beach towels as spots to sit on the floor, or drape them over chairs
  • Beach balls — everywhere!
  • Blow-up palm trees, flamingoes and other pool toys scattered around the party area
  • Seashells big and small as accent decorations
  • Brightly colored balloons
  • Mini umbrellas on tables and in drinks
  • A big drink cooler to house drinks (duh) or games, OR fill it with beach toys or balloons and let it serve as a mood-setting decoration

Attire – It’s all about casual comfort.

  • Flip-flops
  • Beach cover-ups
  • Sundresses
  • Shorts and tees
  • Sweats
  • Pajamas!

Activities and games – After being cooped up inside for months, it’s all about getting everyone moving, ideally in fresh air.

No matter how you spend your Spring Break, we wish you a fun and relaxing week!
