For this sweet little party, we kept things streamlined, simple and focused on a few key elements to make this birthday boy super happy with the way everything came out.
First, we set up outdoors as this was a pool party and we wanted all of the sweets to be accessible during the event. Rather than covering our dessert table with linens, we chose to have this super fun inflatable shark peeking out of the water to one side. The other side of the table was decorated using this fun, portable photo prop!!
We chose a simple white buttercream cake topped with a printable shark design, sitting in a bed of sand, aka light brown sugar. For added design, we set our cake stand inside a life preserver. Simple buttercream cupcakes were spruced up using these light blue and white striped cups and personalized toppers. For a bit of whimsy, and after all, who doesn't love lollipops at this age....we added a grouping of shark lollipop jaws and fins.
For a pop of red, we chose these red and white striped paper plates, perfectly coordinating with the red accents in our printable collection. To add a bit of softness to the table, we used these nautical glass containers and filled them with one of our favorite flowers, white hydrangeas.
Each guest took home a shark toy with popable eyes, perfect for the preschooler crowd.
A "Jaw-some" time was had by all!!
