Our vacations normally emcompass Brant's birthday and after the fun at last year's surf party, Brant was determined to have another party at the beach, even after we had to go a week later due to ball season this year; but he was adament about having another party at the beach and was willing to wait. We used the empty tiki bar poolside, which provided the perfect back drop. We cooked out at the grilling area and the shark theme with the different shades of blue was lots of fun! Stay tuned, next year, Brant will be turning 8 and wants to do an octopus theme :)
I made shark, fin, and #7 cookies, we had blue "shark jelly" (Jello), The cake was a 4 layer alternating chocolate and white with buttercream icing that I bought at Publix once again and threw the fondant/cookie accent on We had Blue Bell Christmas Cookies in July ice cream~loved it!
Plastic Shark Containers with Shark gummies and Great White Shark tic tacs, also a mini bucket with giant blue Lollipop
