For starters...look at my little surfer boy! he enjoyed every moment of his surfer party and that makes it all worth it!
Have a look at these amazing cookies and cake! They tasted just as good as they looked too. I used brown sugar as "sand" in my galvanized tiered tray. I also made little cups of blue jello with gummy sharks swimming around with little "caution SHARKS" flags. You can personalize this printable collection to fit your party too! Now available here in my shop!
This party really did not break the bank, and I am going to share my secrets for being frugal and still throwing a very pulled together theme party.
For the favors, I set up a shelf that I already had at home with "Andrew's Surf Shack" goodies. We got sunscreen (Bonus...in matching colors!) at the dollar store, sunglasses in white and shades of blue, also from the dollar store, we got the perfectly matching lollipops at Easter for $1 ea at Walmart, the bubbles were less than $1 ea at Target and the custom labels tie them right into the party, the sunshine cookie sticks were from Dollar Tree with my custom tags added to them and even my little candy jar was filled with inexpensive orange candy. The kids loved the free for all!
Gotta love Target.....$4 beach towels that I took to a sports shop to have the kids names embroidered and a super cool shark fin ice mold!
Those surfboards that the cupcakes are on....$2.50 cork boards from...you guessed it- TARGET! And the lanterns were also from the $2.50 section.
Hope you caught a little inspiration! Surf's up!
