Birthday Parties — Under the Sea

As the summer heats up and our thoughts turn to the beach, what better time for an “Under the Sea” theme party?  Fish, sharks, mermaids, turtles, shells, octopuses, crabs, bubbles and pirates are all welcomed to this nautical party!

If you’re having an indoor party, consider tacking inexpensive blue fabric to the ceiling to make guests feel like they are literally “under the sea.” Hang green streamers from the ceiling for seaweed. Cut out starfish and sea horse shapes and hang them from some of the streamers. For older kids, you can also cover the floor in green and blue balloons to add more to the water effect.

Use disposable blue and green plastic tablecloths to cover the tables, and drape fishnet on top. Add seashells, plastic fish and even some chocolate gold coins for added tabletop decorations — maybe even some goldfish crackers and gummy fish.

Here are a couple of cake ideas:
