Color Day Themes: The Jersey Shore
This weekend is Memorial Day weekend in the US and that means it's the unofficial start of summer here at the Jersey Shore (or, as us locals call it, "the beach"). The boardwalk opens, families will be stuffing their faces with fried Oreos, children will be filling their cups with tickets to later redeem for friendship bracelets, and the brave may even venture out to dip their toes in the water. The boardwalk and Jersey shore are central to some of our best childhood memories- the first time we ever got a 100 in skee ball, the slices of boardwalk pizza bigger than our faces, and the feeling of hope and anxiety we get when we here the tick-tick-tick-tick-tick of the prize wheels spinning. These are some of the things that made growing up on the Jersey shore so much fun, before the days of hairspray, tanning, and four loco. So, bring a little of that childhood fun into your space by incorporating some true boardwalk elements like cotton candy, funnel cake, photo booths, and bright colors!
