Going to the Beach: Game Night Tips and Ideas

We are planning our fifth beach trip and my favorite night of every trip is Game Night!

Here are some tips and ideas on how to plan a great Beach Trip Game Night...

1. Create a signature cocktail
We always mix up a pitcher of our drink of the day so the flow of the game isn't interrupted for refills!

2. Plan fun and easy snacks
My OCD brain can't handle a lot of mess, so I like to plan easy, neat snacks for game night.  Popcorn is always a go to, but you can up your popcorn game by having add ins like M&Ms, Red Hots, Goldfish, Marshmallows, Chocolate Chips, etc. 
For those with a sweet tooth, I like to get some cookies, brownies or cupcakes.

3. Have a few fun game choices.
I like to have a variety, like board games, cards, dominoes and some interactive games. I usually choose a more complicated game for the beginning of the night before the signature cocktails kick in and then pull out one of our game night classics later in the evening.

4. Have a fun playlist or open the windows if you can hear the beach
There are always going to be lulls in conversation as people concentrate or get tired...and having a playlist to fill the silence and keep the mood elevated is key.

What are your favorite games for game night? Do you have a favorite game night snack?
