Shark Party Ideas

Colby's third birthday is tomorrow!
I will have a 3 year told tomorrow! 
I simply can not believe it. 
Time really does fly when you are having fun and I this year we are doing a party.

This is the first year we are throwing a party for C, 
don't get my wrong we have done something for him every year but just with family.
This year we are having his party at the Splash Park and the theme is SHARKS!
C loves sharks and thinks its cool that they "bite you"...
So sharks it is. 

I of course pinned several ideas and here are some of my favorites that may make the appearance at the party. 


This pretty fruit pizza is made up all kinds of fruit and served on a large sugar cookie made to look like a beach ball. 
This recipe came from Hungry Happenings.


This may be my favorite DIY yet, it would be the perfect addition to your beach/shark party and it looks pretty easy. Just grab some Styrofoam balls, paint, and string and you can whip this cute garland up in no time. 
Check out the tutorial over at Studio DIY.


Gummy Shark Skewers-
Talk about easy peasy.
All these kid friendly favors take are skewers, gummy shark candies, a clear cellophane bag and a tie and maybe even a personalized favor tag to bring it all together.


There are several cute and very boy shark favor tags on Etsy but these are my favorite. 
The tags are from Brown Paper Studios on Etsy and the best part are they are affordable AND instant download, so just in case you are that last minute party planner these are definitely for you.


Shark Fruit Bowl-
I have yet to find an exact tutorial on this besides this picture which can be found here but would this not be the perfect centerpiece to your shark/beach party?!
I will be doing this with some help from my mom for C's upcoming party so hopefully I can take some photos to whip up a tutorial.

Shark Fin Cupcakes-
All you have to do for these are whip up some cupcakes, add some turquoise frosting and add a simple shark fin to the top that you could cut out yourself with some cardstock. 
The image source can be found here
Or, you could always buy some fondant toppers from Etsy.

Printable Invite-
Again with Etsy, there are a ton of shops that offer cute printables. I scoured Pinterest to find the original link to this invite but simply could not find it. However, I can give you a great alternative, Pretty Paper Parties on Etsy. Brooke, the owner can whip you up any design you can think of including a shark invite.

Paper Straws-
We all love Target and their great party supplies and now they have amped it up a notch by carrying the trendy paper straws that everyone loves and is raving about. 


What kid, and adult doesn't love a cake pop?!
