Boating Means Party Time!
You may sail in Newport, San Diego, or Bermuda. Or go ocean-racing in Miami or Catalina. Whether you go yachting in Nantucket or Lake of the Ozarks, or just like to cruise along on a nearby river or lake, this is the time of year for boating! Big blue skies, warm sun and Jimmy Buffet on the iPod bring instant relaxation …and parties! Why not be ready with some of Smarty's party supplies? Here are some items you sailors may want to keep in the cupboard for instant party success: · White underlay tablecloths · Royal blue satin overlays · Yellow runners and chair scarves · Silver napkin rings · Silver chargers · Martini and margarita glasses · Minis for a delightful presentation of the simplest canapes · Serving platters · Triangle plates · Stemware for wine · Reflections silver flatware · Fondue fountain · Lights to define the area - either dramatic up-lighting or fun-string lights, depending on the feel of the party you are having. Don’t forget to always have the freezer stocked with plenty of ice, have your favorite libations at the helm and some basic staples. You’ll be ready to shove off with your maties even if you are a landlubber! ~ Karen
