Under the Sea 6th Birthday Party

Last weekend my daughter celebrated
her 6th birthday.
She wanted an Under the Sea Party but,
didn't want it to involve Aerial!
That's my girl!!
Here are the details from the party!
As many of you know I started with the colors
Turquoise and Orange.
The colors were so fun to work with!
The main table was decorated using simple patterns
of polka dots and stripes.
I thought the polka dots looked like bubbles.
I cut large craft foam into fish shapes.
Then I used turquoise and orange accents.
White plates, orange napkins, and turquoise utensils
set the table.
I covered plain white cups in coordinating scrapbook paper and
added the turquoise and white striped straws to top it off!
I hung fish nets behind the table and
made a fish banner.
Main Table Details....

Fish Net Backdrop and Hanging Poms!

The Place Cards are one of my favorites on the table!
I used small acrylic dip cups for the place cards.
I filled them with turquoise sand and
placed clementines topped with a
drink umbrella inside.
The girls loved them!

The centerpieces are probably my other favorite!
I just filled different sized cylinder vases with
blue tinted water.
I added the goggles to make it young and fun!

The sweets Table was a fairly simple one this time.
Cake, Rice Krispy Treats, Popcorn and Marshmallows.
I used coordinating scrapbook paper on the
plates to add more interest to the table.

I made the number "6" sign to hang above the
Sweets Table out of tissue paper with
a cardboard back!

The activities included Sand Art, Necklace Beading,
and a Treasure Hunt.
The sand art was a big hit!

The girls took home treats and prizes
from the treasure chest in these
Chinese Take out boxes!

I found these at the
Dollar Tree ladies!!
This was the first time to make all of the labels myself.
I sure do have a whole new respect for
all of you graphic designers!
I will be purchasing these
next time I have a party!
I had so much fun and survived a party
that included a sleep over that night!
