Summer is all about fun in the sun, and there's no better place to celebrate than at the beach on a warm day. The bad news? Your patio or deck isn't exactly the beach. 

The good news? Creating a nautical atmosphere for a summer filled with beachy parties with friends is much easier than you might think. Here are a few great nautical home decor ideas to get you started.

Personalized Life Preserver Rings
What better way to see your guests off and uphold the nautical theme than by gifting personalized life preserver rings? If you're not one for thank you gifts, these are a great addition to your home anyway. Investing in a life preserver ring for every member of the family can make for a very nautical patio decoration, and these nautical decorations will definitely make you feel closer to the sea.

Pirate Decor
There's nothing quite like a summer bash that encourages the pirate's life! Stocking up your bar with rum might be a great first step, but it's not the cherry on top of the event. Rather, a pirate themed party, complete with decorations like faux parrots, skull and crossbones flags, and all other manner of pirate-themed accessories and decorations will make for a party that will have all of your guests thinking "it's a pirate's life for me!"

Fun With Sand
You might not be at the beach, but sand is essential for a nautical party. About 26% of people report spending almost 12 hours a day in their homes, but that doesn't mean sand is entirely out of the picture for a house party! Dense, easily-molded sand is available in a variety of stores and can be used to enhance your already nautical event. Sand castle contests have never been so mess-free!

Whether you have your heart set on a beach themed party or a pirate themed one, make sure your home decor is up to the challenge. These are just a few of the many ways you can create a more nautical atmosphere for your summer extravaganzas!
