Party Theming, Decor and Dress Ups Detail

 

Vases or Bunches of Fresh Flowers
Fresh flowers can be pre-ordered and delivered to your cruise vessel of choice prior to your guests boarding. We'll gladly work to any colour scheme to suit your taste and vision. Decorative flowers are a popular choice for wedding cruises but can also liven up corporate and other private occasions.

Chocolates
A perfect addition to flowers is of course chocolates!!

Ribbons
For a special touch, ribbon sashes are a quick way to herald your celebration.

Event Furniture Hire
If your event requires special furniture such as meeting podium or unique seating, this is generally possible, depending on the boat of course! Please ask us and we can guide you to possible options for your chosen vessel and event needs.

Signage
A boat is a perfect backdrop for corporate signage. There are numerous options for display of banners on you private boat charter.

Dress Up Boat Party Ideas
Some of our popular theming ideas are really easy. Just ask people to dress up to a theme, bring a few props along and the party will be rocking!

Nautical Yacht Party Theme
Wear: boat hats, stripes, navy, white and red colours, lots of fashion choices for this one!
Props: Hey the boat is a prop so you probably need to just bring your camera.

Pirate Theme
Wear: Pirate hats, fake swords, eye patches, long hair wigs, torn clothes, vests, 3/4 pants and baggy sleeves.
Props: Again, you just need to just bring your camera. A pirate flag would be cool.

Bondi Swimmer Theme
Wear: Swimmers, loose beachwear, terry toweling, hats, blow up floats
Props: Blow up floats, towels, beach bags, colourful umbrellas

White Party
Wear: White!
Props: White tablecloths, ribbons, ballons

Letter Theme
Work the letter around the event eg F Party for Fourtieth Birthday
Wear: Anything starting with that letter!
Props: Anything starting with that letter/ character!

Glamour Theme/ James Bond
A boat party creates an instant glamorous backdrop.
Wear: Think seduction with style. Its all about beautifully cut clothes and quality fabrics to get the look right. Girls makeup should include eyeliner and not be too bright. Dark glasses and a nice watch work in as well.

Tropical Party
A tropical theme works well on a boat.This colourful theme is a great way to add pizzazz to your charter. With live music & beautiful dancers in traditional dress, this authentically Polynesian experience is sure to impress your guests.
Wear: Colour! Colour! Colour! Hawaiian shirt prints or bold print dresses of hybiscus or frangipani look great. Colourful sunglasses. Girls can wear a flower in their hair. A flower garland works for all genders and gives an instant look of tropical celebration.
Props: Pinapples, mangoes, inflatable palm trees ( these are really cheap online), drinks with mini umbrellas, colourful cocktails!
 

Indigenous/Australian cruise
Entertain local & international guests alike with a fair dinkum Australian theme. Enjoy an authentic Aussie BBQ & a wide variety of optional extras including: indigenous performers, Aussie trivia, Aussie sing-along’s, 2up, green & gold decorations.

Bollywood
Add some spice to your charter by arranging a Bollywood theme. Ask your guests to dress in traditional Indian costume, and award prizes for best dressed. Indian menus can be selected on some vessels- ask one of the SHE team members.

Christmas
Find out whether your guests have been naughty or nice this Christmas with your very own Santa. Christmas carols, decorations, elves, games, trophies are also available.

Circus
Add some magic & fun to your charter with a Circus theme. Magicians, clowns & jugglers are all available to entertain your guests.

Latino
Salsa, samba & rumba to vivacious Latino rhythms whilst cruising around the beautiful Sydney Harbour. Let our gorgeous Latino Dancers inspire your guests onto the dance floor.

Moulin Rouge
Kick up your heels and can-can with a Moulin Rouge theme. Dancers, with their vibrant costumes & choreographed routines, inject fun and colour into your cruise
 

Casino
A casino theme is a fun & unique way to entertain your guests, adding a touch of class & sophistication to your cruise.
Each guest is given a generous amount of chips, which can be used at a wide variety of tables. A croupier, as well as a casino manager are available to offer assistance.
Extras: Prizes can be awarded to your guests; more specific themes include James Bond, Gangsters, Monte Carlo, & Vegas.
Live cabaret can also be added, as well as Vegas showgirls, Elvis impersonators etc.

 

Pirates
What better way to amuse your guests than with a Pirate theme for your next boat cruise? Professional pirates can be sourced from the dark waters of the Caribbean purely for your charter.
Make your guests walk the plank, organise a treasure hunt & best dressed prize.

Disco
Boogie on down aboard one of your psychedelic vessels. Kick up your platforms with your very own Austin Powers impersonator, 70s DJ or Karaoke booth. There are so many ways you can make a boat venue better than land venue in Sydney


Last Tips
Forget High Heels
You are on a boat, so forget abour high heels girls. Or wear them to the boat then show off your best nailpolish. Boat shoes come in great styles now and with work with nearly everthing above.

Bring the Camera
Be prepared for lots of social sharing!

Cheers and have fun from the SHE Team
