Under the Sea Party

Under the Sea Party Table

We celebrated my daughter’s 9th birthday with an under the sea pool party. 

Are you ready for some picture overload?

I love the color combination of the aqua and coral with the sandy-colored accents.  Pinterest was a big help in fueling the inspiration and finding easy dessert ideas.  This may be my favorite party yet.

Happy partying!

    1. I think you could do a boyish twist to this - deep sea diver party?

      The fair was great! I wish you were still here so you could have joined us!
