PARTY DETAILS, as told by Shannon
:

Since my husband and son’s birthdays are only a week apart I decided to do a combined birthday for them this year.  Coming up with a theme that would work for both was a bit of a challenge, but  since they both love the beach, I decided to go with a vintage surf theme.  I designed the party invitation, all of the party printables and handmade most of the party decorations.  I wanted to make sure the kids had a lot of activities to keep them busy so I set up an area that included sensory tables filled with sand and beans, magnetic fishing, coconut bowling, bubbles, and beach scene stickers.  We had our pool built last year and construction didn’t finish until the very end of summer so we were excited to finally be able to “break it in!”  We also had a beach bar, dessert shack, gelato cart, Hawaiian BBQ, and the kids all took home their own magnetic fishing games as favors.  It was a beautiful day and everyone really had a lot of fun!

I love the little details – like the “beach closed for shark sighting” sign. Adorable!
