Today’s party feature is courtesy of crafty mama Carrie, who put together a wonderful under the sea party for her kids, Joshua and Megan!

Homemade signs let guests know that even though it’s cold outside, there’s a summer-worthy party awaiting inside. : )

How fun are the balloons on the floor!! And is it just me or do the streamers remind you of waves and seaweed?

A DIY banner is hung over the food table (possibly one of the longest banners ever – fabulous!)

Buffet cards label each food item, and the cake from Bliss Bakery is just beautiful!

Carrie said the water bottle labels were a huge hit! : )

The theme is carried into the dining room with color-coordinated lanterns.

Under the sea patterned paper is a great backdrop, plus Carrie said “we had cut out little sea shapes that we had the kids tape to the water paper when they came in to keep them busy while everyone was arriving.” The paper came from Shindigz, as did the shark cut-out, which was used for photos and also for games – the kids played bean bag toss and called it “feeding the shark.”

Visors are lined up on the stairs so that party guests can choose their own hat!

A variety of treats and games fill each treat bucket, and a friend of the family sang “Baby Beluga” with his guitar. Carrie said the kids loved the special performance. : )

The magic moment! Three candles for Joshua and two for Megan.

Happy, happy birthday Joshua and Megan! Thank you so much, Carrie! : )
