Brant's 7th Birthday Party Swimming with the Sharks

Melissa B By Melissa B  in Birthday


Party Recap

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 :)

    Kids had Blue Crayola water (I needed something easy that I didn't have to mix up and low in sugar)


Party Helpers

  • Teresa Vaughn

    Cake designer

    She agreed to just make the fondant accents, since I was leary of traveling with a cake!

  • Abigail Barnes, owner of Paper & Cake Printable Partyware


    Loved the printable party package! The best thing is, I was able to do my own personalization and print as much or as little as I needed! What I printed wasn't even half, there were so many things to choose from, but since this was a very small party and I was traveling, I kept it simple.
