Under the Sea 5th Birthday...

I had the pleasure of hosting and styling an Under the Sea 5th Birthday party. It was a tight budget so I tried to make do with things that I got on clearance at Michaels & AC Moore as well as buying a few supplies off the internet. I wanted it to be playful and fun, both for the kids and the adults!

The favors were sand buckets that I got at the dollar store, filled with the usual; goldfish, bubbles, tattoos & candy. The favors I created online that read "Thanks for being part of my world!". After tying them up with cellophane wrap, I tied the sand shovel onto the outside of the bucket to give them a little more depth.

The only somewhat expensive thing I splurged on was the scene setter roll of underwater paper. I strung some christmas lights underneath to give it some shimmer and cut out a cardstock image of Ariel to look like she was swimming away.

The desserts I made myself, just some simple cupcakes dressed up with a picture of Ariel & Prince Eric's wedding scene created a little centerpiece for the platter.

I made some oreo truffle balls that were dipped in aqua chocolate and piped with some orange frosting.

The cake was adroned with some chocolate shells that I molded with some brown sugar nestled along the bottom of the layers.

This "sand castle" was purely for decorating - just used a sand toy mold and filled it with brown sugar and let it harden. Just a little pizazz for the sweets table.
Just an overview where the kids ate - some helium balloons on the ceiling with no strings, along with some cheap netting I found and some clearance ribbon & accessories created the perfect little room for them to play in.
