Hello, friends! I hope you are enjoying your summer! I can’t believe we are halfway through it! I honestly can’t wait for fall! Not a big fan of this Texas heat so I have been counting the days for summer to end! On the other hand, I love summer themed parties! (Go figure!) If you are looking for a fun theme, I hope you enjoy this simple yet fun shark party! No secrets. You can recreate this look in a heartbeat!
Set the tone for your fintastic party with an adorable invitation design. It will certainly get you guests excited!
DIY BACKDROP IDEA
For my backdrop, I was looking for something easy yet eye-catching so I had the idea to create decorations using large paper shark platters, balloons and twine. I simply secured the plates using a strong tape. Note: Make sure you dust your walls before attaching the plates. Inflate the balloons using a pump. No need for helium!
For my tablescape, I layered fun striped plates in two different sizes. Finished each place setting with coordinating items, such as silver cups, acrylic shark drink sticks, napkins, wooden utensils and tissue confetti! Let’s not forget the super adorable shark cookies!
The good thing about kids parties is the fact you don’t need much to keep them happy. Include a simple yet pretty buttercream cake and if this is a birthday celebration, decorate it with fun large candles! An easy and inexpensive way to add a fun touch to a simple cake. I love this buttercream ombre design. It’s perfect for this theme!
Cupcakes are always a crowd-pleaser so be sure to incorporate them. Spruce them up with liners to coordinate with your party décor.
Themed cookies are my big time favorite! How adorable are these shark sugar cookies? They double as place setting décor and take-home favors!
Where are my donut lovers? It’s almost impossible to find the perfect donuts to match your party color scheme, right? You can purchase plain donuts, make the icing in the color of your choice and decorate them with fun sprinkles!
PHOTO OP – BALLOON BACKDROP
I fell in love with these Crystal Clear Balloons when I saw them! Anagram Balloons was kind enough to send a few in different colors.
Create a space in which the kids can have fun posing for fun pictures! You can send your guests an individual photo along with a thank you card!
I hope you enjoyed this post, friends!
