Party Recap

With an August birthday I thought the best way to beat the heat would be to have a beach party this year for my son's BIG 5 birthday. He had a blast and it was a blast to plan. So many cute beach ideas out there! Interestingly enough, while we were beating the heat with a beach party I was having AC problems! What luck!

    I did make them. They are actually upside down party hats that I assembled a little tighter. If you look closely, the images are upside down! :)

    I actually did not use a mold. I simple dipped the oreos in chocolate. A little messy for a perfectionist...but luckily water is wavy!

    where did you get all the printable from? food tent cards etc? And what is the photo booth background made out of? I am assuming the bottom is a blue tarp.

    I got the printables from Totful Memories on Etsy and the background is a backdrop from Oriental Trading Company. The bottom is a blue tarp and we just made the surf board. Very Easy!
