The beach scene of the early 1960s was known for its modern styles and laid-back feel. Think Gidget and her itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka-dot bikini. Hang a vintage longboard on the wall, or repurpose it into a coffee table. A bamboo tiki-bar is the perfect spot for refreshments, and a wave machine is a nice touch for background ambience. Have some fun props on hand like beach balls and period beach blankets. Leave your flip-flops at the door and hang ten.
