Party Recap

This "under the sea" first birthday party was so colorful and entertaining. Guest walked into the backyard with bubbles flying around. The kids had instant fun with the bubbles as they arrived. The kids colored different sea creatures to decorate the ocean. I had sea creature foam stickers for the younger kids to decorate. I also glued wooden sea creatures to popsicle sticks for their puppet theater. For snacks I made blue jello cups with gummy sharks inside for an ocean look. I made marshmallow pops and cake pops in matching colors. The kids and parents all enjoyed the sweets. The birthday boy was a happy one year old!
