Pink Crabby Birthday Party

What’s not to love about this adorable Preppy Pink Polka Dot Crabby Birthday Party from Jess of Party Box Design?! There’s nothing “crabby” about this party, except for the Crabs themselves, of course! I can’t stop looking at the amazing fondant cupcake toppers and crabby cookies. They have to be one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen and who knew crabs could look so cute?

I love how this isn’t your traditional girl’s birthday party theme, but it’s still oh-so-feminine and stylish! There are so many colorful & creative details to admire – from the wooden crab mallets and the clever “crabby bar and beach” sign (made by Jess’s husband) to the simply stunning refurbished hutch that was adorned with pink fishing net and sparkly pink crabs!

Fondant Crabby Cupcakes, Hat, Cookies

And we can’t forget about the matching birthday hat made especially for the birthday girl of course! Speaking of the birthday girl, her adorable tutu and matching shirt and little bare feet are just too cute. The incredibly preppy color palette of pink, blue, and white was spot on. I love it all!!!!

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Jess

“My daughter Charli loves crabs, we are from MD… and I must admit, I heart prep! What other possible theme could there be then a… Preppy Pink Crab Party?!? Plus, I really think Shades of Pink, Powder Blue, and Navy look so nice together. I had to throw in the polka dots, because what is preppy without polka dots?!?

We, of course, had to have steamed crabs and Crabby Ale at the party, which the guests loved. If you are from MD, then you know Summer means crab feasts- it’s one of the best things about this state.

For the favors, the kids took home crabby cupcake push pops and crabby cookies. The adults were given a jar of crabby spice.

My husband made the amazing Crabby Bar and Beach sign, which is prob my most favorite part… aside from the actual bar, which was a labor of love. The crabby bar was originally purchased from a second hand shop and restored by me- amazing find!

Overall, this was our favorite party yet! So many amazing vendors and a fantastic photographer. This party really felt like “us“, more than just a theme, but rather a great party that celebrated all the things we love.”
