This styled party first appeared in the Spring 2014 issue of Twinkle Twinkle Little Party e-magazine. Party printable were created by and stations were styled by A Party Studio.
Since this is a submarine party, we decided to provide a SUB sandwich station. This included a selection of bread, sandwich meats, cheese, and condiments. Guests were encourage to create their own subs. Of course there was salad and potato chips to round out the meal. In keeping with the underwater theme, the littlest guests enjoyed goldfish crackers and octopus hot dogs as well as classic peanut butter and jam sandwiches.
The entree table was asymmetrically styled using an oversized balloon with crepe streamer and white wooden frame to add height to the table. Condiments were attractively presented inside baby food jars, decorated with grosgrain ribbon. A custom made yellow table runner added a pop of color to the front of the table whilst a vinyl yellow submarine emphasized the theme of the party.
The dessert table features a two-tier chevron and polkadot lemon blueberry fondant cake, personalized oversized sugar cookies, chocolate covered Oreos, chocolate dipped pretzel rods, and cupcakes. The cupcakes were placed inside cupcake wrappers and decorated with personalized cupcake toppers and tulle pompoms. The submarine in front of the cake was made using ruffled crepe paper to tie in the backdrop of the drink station and a vinyl submarine was used here for decoration- this time on a white background. Wooden cutlery was attractively presented in a square glass vase with a yellow tulle pompom and the table was decorated with an array of yellow and white flowers. Apothecary jars were filled with various sweet treats.
The favor and drink station featured old fashioned lemonade in a drink dispenser and repurposed Starbucks Frappuccino bottles. These were cleaned, labels removed and decorated with grosgrain ribbon. A striped paper straw added the finishing touch to the bottles. The station was decorated using a ruffled crepe paper backdrop, banner, tissue pompoms and chic flower arrangements. Favors included an oversized chocolate chip cookie in a chevron paper bag and Hershey kiss chocolates inside custom made submarine favor boxes. The Hershey kisses were decorated with personalized stickers. These adorable favors were the perfect way to thank the guests for a sweet birthday celebration.
