An Under the Sea Party

I know it’s been a month since Olivia’s birthday party.  I finally got all the pictures together! To see the planning stages check out my post: Party Inspirations.  Let me jump right in to the Under the Sea themed birthday party.

Balloons. There are some mylar fish you can’t see.  Don’t have a great shot of them – since they flew up into the air in the middle of the party…ahhh – $$ well spent 😦 This is also the craft table where kids created their own Under the Sea inspired art projects.

Drinks Under the Sea Drink Coolers – some for kids – some for adults.

Guest Names Under the Sea This is what I decided to do with the blue fish from my inspiration folder.  I printed labels with all of Olivia’s friends names, assigned each one a fish, then affixed them to an extra piece of wrapping paper I wasn’t using.  We hung the whole thing from the tree in the backyard.
