I know, I know , Christmas is only 19 days away and here I am showing a summer party…but better late than ever, right 🙂
Now, I do understand that Summer is gone and that everywhere you look all you see are winter parties or holiday related things, but hey, I live in Florida and it seems that Summer is here to stay 🙂
I showed you the invitation I designed for my son’s 3rd birthday. Today I will finally show you how it all turned out.
Like I mentioned before, the party was supposed to be at the club house, by the pool, but hurricane Isaac decided to be part of it and we had to have it in our house, something we decided on the morning of the party.
The theme was easy, but coming out with the decor took a bit longer. This party was very different from the other ones I did for him.
This one was really planned last minute, and when I say last minute I mean the week of.
Thank God for Homegoods!!
We used a net that my mom brought from Brazil and the decor I had from my Homegoods as the background.
The sweet table had an Octopus cake, Snorkel cupcakes, yummy sea creature cookies ( by Brooke from BB Sweets), Octopus Pops ( made by yours truly), Divers Mousse ( Aren’t they so cute???), Ocean Jello, and all the Brazilian favorites – brigadeiro, beijinho and doce de leite ninho 🙂
Oh, and my favorite, the cake pops – I could not believe my eyes when I saw what Ximena from Cake Pops By Xpressive Designs created.
They were PERFECT!
She even made the diver with curly hair.
We had a Hot Dogs and Hamburger Bar, along with Seaweed Salad 😉
And make sure you take a look at the sea turtle we had. Nice from Marvelous Brigadeiro made the cutest watermelon sea turtle I’ve ever seen!!
I incorporated the logo we created for the invitation on all the paper goods, and personalized even the hamburger’s wrappers.
Look for all the vendors at the end of the post.
