Everybody's Going Surfin'! (14 photos)
This “Surf Party” was to celebrate Clive's 3rd birthday. When his mom and I first spoke about doing a surf party, I saw vibrant colors and cereal surf necklaces and you’ll see from the pictures that we had just that. The centerpiece of the dessert table was an ombre cake topped with a van, surfboards and a “Happy Birthday” sign all made of cookies. The "woody" style van mimicked the van on the printables. The detail on the van is amazing. We made sure that one of the surfboards was a Spiderman board because Spidey is the birthday boy’s favorite. Vanilla and chocolate cupcakes were topped with surfboard and swim trunk toppers, as well as the birthday boys name, his age and “Happy Birthday” signs. Two galvanized towers held treats like fresh fruit cups and multicolored chevron treat bags filled with pretzels and cheese fish. Warning signs to “Watch out for Fins” and “Watch out for Sharks” were just above gummy sharks. Blue and yellow sugar cooki es were a colorful treat, as were as the cups of colorful Lifesaver gummies. The cereal-strung necklaces were a hit! Sand pails were filled with cake pops and crumbled vanilla wafer cookies to resemble sand. If only we could find cake pops on the beach : )
There were other 3 year olds running around with their friend Clive, but some of the guests were babies so the place settings had both big and small pail favors filled with either sand molds or water squeeze balls. Colorful plates, decorated utensils and personalized water bottles were at each setting and each child’s pail had their name so that they also were a part of Clive’s big day.
Hanging a beach towel and a “Say Cheese” sign created a photo backdrop. A personalized surfboard with the birthday boys name and a “Surfs Up” frisbee were props and the kids enjoyed holding them up during the pictures.
