- Beach balls: The great thing about using beach balls as part of your decor is that they are cheap and can be used in a variety of ways. Purchase beach balls in many different sizes. Inflated them and begin to strategically place them throughout the party area. Once you have some of them placed around the room, attach string to the others. A small piece of duct tape should ensure the string attaches to the top of the beach ball throughout the night. After the string is attached, hang the rest of the beach balls from the ceiling.
- Table decor: Start by spreading a white tablecloth over a table. Hang a grass table skirt to give the table a tropical feel. Fish bowls will be the main focus of the table. Using fish bowls as part of your indoor beach party decor will help bring the element of water into the room. Use a large fish bowl filled with water, colorful pebbles and tropical colored fish as the centerpiece of your buffet table. Purchase smaller fish bowls to fill with chips, pretzels and other snacks. To finish the table, scatter sand over the tabletop. Build small piles of sand and place seashells and small plastic shovels sticking out of the mounds.
