Splish Splash Birthday Party Ideas

Back in April I helped a friend do up a birthday party for her two children.  

My friend is on strict bed rest (she's expecting her 3rd child) and so I offered to help her throw a party for her four year old son and two year old daughter.  Since her little ones birthdays are only about a month apart, she decided to combine the parties.

We decided to go with a beach theme party and I designed the Splish Splash Birthday Bash Printables. The party turned out to be super cute and it was so fun to do.

Today, I'm going to share the party detail photos with you all.  

The Front Entrance to the Party:
 We ended up having the party at my house, so this is in my front entrance.
 
I used some sailboats that I have as room decor in my boys bedroom and incorporated those into the party.

 The Party Invitation
 
The editable invitation can be found HERE in my shop.

The Snack Bar
The snack bar banner is part of the printable set.
as are most of the printables you see in this post.
Silverware Wrappers placed in Target tins, a little burlap wrapped around the bucket and a life saver as a life preserver.

Dollar Tree sand buckets for the food table and Target sand shovels as the scooper.

 Target Tins, Dollar Tree Plates & Dollar Tree Plastic Scoopers


 
 The Cupcakes
 


 We used gummy whales, fish and starfish candy to top the cupcakes.
 
and the party circle tags as cupcake toppers (also part of the printable set.)

The Drink Station
 

 
 Water Bottles

 These labels are part of the splish splash printable set.


 

 

 

 I hung the Keep Calm sign (also part of the printable set) on the snack bar.


 The Table Setting

 The "small" kids table in the house.





We bought a few goldfish and gave them away as prizes.

The kids LOVED the goldfish!


The "big" kids table set up in the garage.

The Party Favors
 
The "bigger" kids got little silver buckets (from the dollar section in Target) with candy in them.

 The "smaller" kiddos got sand buckets (from the Dollar Tree) filled with all kinds of goodies.
 
wrapped in burlap, twine and a label.

The boys got blue buckets

 and the girls got orange buckets.


The Gift Opening Station
I had these little plastic Adirondack chairs outside, so I just washed them up and brought them inside.

and added some black and white beach photo's of the birthday kiddo's across the fireplace.

The gifts I made for her two little ones 

Using Target and Dollar Tree beach and outdoor items I made some gift baskets.   
This one is more boyish.
 and this one is a little more girlie.

The printables to create this party can be found in my shop:
Hope you enjoyed the party photo's and
I hope you found an idea or two for your next birthday bash.

May you be a little inspired!
Until next time,
DaNita
