The smell of ocean air, the rhythmic sound of waves washing up on shore—there’s nothing quite like a visit to the beach in the summer. But with the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives, it can be hard to make the time for a trip to the beach.
Don’t despair that you’re not getting to the shore as much as you’d like this season. Take action and bring the beach to you with these tips for oceanside fun wherever you are!
There are certain things that just say “beach.” Sand dollars, salt-water taffy and sea glass jewelry all call up fond memories of trips to the coast. Blue and green are the colors of the sea and are oftentimes the hues found in gift shops on the boardwalk. Our Luigi Bormioli Prezioso Green and Prezioso Blue collections evoke the majesty of coastal waters with their gorgeously colored crystal and shimmering wave-like appearance. Serving up your favorites in these marine-colored beauties will transport you to that special vacation spot on the sand, with the help of these tips:
Plan a Gathering
When you have your toes in the sand, it’s rarely by yourself. When we hit the shore, it’s almost always with friends and family in tow. Planning a beach-themed get-together with familiar faces will make you feel like you’re at that beach house you rented all over again (without the travel or the packing).
With a group of people you’ll need to quench your thirst in the hot summer sun. We recommend the Prezioso Blue Water Glass and Prezioso Blue Bottle to accommodate all your guests in true maritime style.
Dress and Decorate
The old saying “dress for success” is true for every occasion. By dressing in your favorite beach outfit, whether it’s a summer dress or those trusty docksiders, you’ll conjure up your favorite memories and get in the seaside spirit.
Don’t stop at your wardrobe, though. Decorate your table, and anywhere else guests will gather, with seashells and beach memorabilia. A steel pail filled with sand makes a safe base for citronella candles and plays on the beach theme to help set the tone. The Prezioso Green Beverage Glass will add to the mix and complete the experience no matter how far from the shore you are.
Serve Oceanside Specialties
Seafood, French fries and your favorite summer libation are just some of the culinary ways to re-create an oceanside adventure. Whether it’s hot dogs or salt water taffy, seek out your most nostalgic boardwalk foods and plan your menu around them.
Bloody Marys, white wine and seasonal summer beers not only have an affinity for seafood, but absolutely shine when served in our Prezioso Blue Pitcher (with cooling tube to keep your drinks ice cold without diluting them). We also recommend our Prezioso Blue DOF glass to enjoy your favorite cocktails and complete your beach party tablescape.
Relax (Like You Would at the Beach)
As you sip and nosh on your favorites with familiar faces around a seashell-strewn table in the sun, it’s hard not to smile and feel like you’re at the beach. Embrace the moment! Let your cares disappear like you were on the coast miles and miles away.
By surrounding yourself with the elements of a fun beach vacation, you’ll evoke that beach bum feeling without ever leaving your yard. It’s time to blow up the beach ball, grill up something delicious and reminisce on your favorite trips to the shore while staring into the deep blues and greens of our Prezioso glassware.
