Octonaut's Birthday Party

Christilina By Christilina  in Birthday


Party Recap

I decided to start with the backdrop, which I created in Illustrator and was inspired by the whimsical underwater scenes from the show & books. I wanted to stick with the show’s bright color scheme of different shades of aqua, green and orange. For cupcake toppers, I traced the faces of each of the Octonauts and then was able to reuse those for masks for the kids to use. I have no idea how to make fondant characters, so I decided to be experimental and make them out of clay. I figured that way he could save them after the party. I also created some Octonaut hats, invitations, and a pin the patch on Kwazii game.

For the food, we tried to keep it in theme with the ocean creatures, so I had a talented friend create cake pops that looked like the Octonauts characters as well as the Octoalert cookies. We also served french macaroons that looked like clam shells, sand pudding, sand dollar cookies, jello sailboats, and shark tooth necklaces.

We tried to have a variety of activities for the kiddos, which included a Kwazii treasure hunt, a walk the plank contest, fishing, and a cookie cutter shark decorating station. We also had a photo booth setup where the kids and parents could take photos together, which I later used in their thank you cards.
