Under the Sea Party

Susannah’s under-the-sea theme was so much fun. Probably my favorite party so far. I can’t believe the girl is 8 already.

I think the octopus (jellyfish?) cupcakes were my favorite part. I mean, I wouldn’t have eaten one for $20 (marshmallows…blech), but they were so dang cute. Under the Sea Party 1

Jerm especially enjoyed eating the claws off of the lobster candies. Under the Sea Party 2 Under the Sea Party 3 Under the Sea Party 6

Susannah loved the hanging jellyfish so much that she had me hang them up in the playroom after the party.  Under the Sea Party 7 Under the Sea Party 8

The kids loved the jello. I meant to add crushed graham crackers on the top for sand but I forgot to buy them…oops. Under the Sea Party 14

I had a treasure hunt planned for the kids to search out their favor chests but it rained so much the day before the party that I had to nix that idea. It wasn’t worth them squishing around in the backyard bog we’ve had all summer. Under the Sea Party 15

Oyster cookies. Under the Sea Party 16

My weirdly disproportionate crab plates. Oh well, they worked.  Under the Sea Party 17

I made these out of salt dough and planned to hang them as a garland but they were so heavy that I ended up scattering them on the table instead. Under the Sea Party 18

I’ve never had Sonic’s ocean water, but whipped up a batch for the party and Susannah LOVED it. Weird, because she’s not a coconut fan, but I think she drank about half of it herself. Under the Sea Party 19

The girls with their mermaid tails. Poor Audrey got last pick and hers was way too short. Little girls are so cute. They’re fun to sew for, too. Under the Sea Party 24 Under the Sea Party 25 Under the Sea Party 26 Under the Sea Party 28

Happy Birthday, girlie.
