If you live near a nice beach, have a fun party there. If not, you can still have a "Beach" party at a nearby park that has a large sand play area or even in your own yard. Just fill a few kiddie pools with sand, break out the sand toys, beach towels, and lawn chairs and create your own beach.
Have an indoor beach party on a rainy or snowy day. Skip the sand, but turn up the heat, turn on the bright lights, play some beach music, and serve summer treats.
