Surf's Up! Summer Party

Holly M By Holly M  in Summer


Party Recap

I wanted to have a party to celebrate the end of school and the beginning of summer for my 8 year old son and his friends. I chose the surf's up theme because the beach means summer and my son loves sharks, so I incorporated both into the overall theme. For more details, visit my blog at
