Place picnic baskets with lids to house paper napkins, plates and cups to keep them from blowing away. Label the baskets so people easily know what's inside.

You can choose buffet-style food for an outdoor beach party. Decide a few main item that you can provide in chafing dishes, such as baked ziti and chicken marsala. Accompaniment the variety with summer salads of potato, coleslaw, pasta, tomato and basil and fruit.

You can consider little appetizers for first course food. This is an easy way for people to eat while they mingle. You can choose mini- crabcakes, shrimp (wrapped in bacon) on skewers and a cut-vegetable platter.
