Party Recap

So I had 8 days to prepare for the luau themed 2nd birthday at Wet'n Wild. It was definitely a clutch play trying to execute a meticulous event for a special girl. It was a huge feat getting the vendors on board with a weeks notice, but once they were secured, it was full speed ahead.I decided to use the invite as the focal point to decorate eveything around it. The colors were orange, yellow, green accents and of course her favorite color, pink. It's not a luau if you don't have coconuts, palm trees, pineapples, and hibiscus' so we made sure we incorporated all these elements into the sweets on the dessert bar, the guest tables, as well as the labels and tent cards. I had no idea that it would take 3 hours to put together the 50 napkins; however, they turned out better than I expected. The cookies with the number 2 were designed to mirror the 2 on the invitation. I had the lables on drink tubs customized to match the invite as well. The smah hits were the ombre cake shots as well as the rock candy...wow...did the kids love them! Crushed up grapham crackers filled the glasses and the fruit on top was a refreshing treat on a 97 degree Florida summer day. All in all, the birthday girl had an amazing time enveloped with lots of love, family, friends, and of course the color pink!
