 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.

Guests took home chevron paper bags ( for sale on my shop) with lots of sweets ( hey, it’s a kids party) including delicious cookies made by the talented Janet from Sweet Dough.

I won’t hold you much longer, be prepared for a ton of pictures. 

Look for all the vendors at the end of the post.

Enjoy!

See, I told you here that I would be back 🙂

My sweet boy just turned 3 – ok, it was in August, and we are in October, but who is counting….

This year he asked me to have a diver party – after watching Finding Nemo for a billion times I guess he became attached to that diver’s mask.

And being a loving mom that I am ( and a party planner trying to avoid the characters for as I long as I can) I went for it.

I have to say that the party was planned in 4 weeks.

“4 weeks of working 40 hours outside the house and then putting everyone to sleep to start working on the decor”  kind of weeks.

We decided to have it at our clubhouse, by the pool, but just like last year, an uninvited guest decided to show up.

This year was Hurricane Isaac.

Who decided to come on the DAY OF THE PARTY….REALLY??????

I decided ( Isaac forced me to it) to have the party at our house, and I actually loved how it turned out.

The first thing was coming out with the invitation. I knew I wanted to be colorful and wanted to have some kind of texture ( not just straight out of my printer), so my sister in law from Tudo de Bom Arte Festas   and I came out with this diver, that looked jut like Josh, with curly hair and all.

From there it was easy peasy.

My dear Sil worked hard to make every detail of this invitation, and if the help of Michaels the result was one ( more like 40) adorable invitation.

 

What do you think?

I will be adding these one to the shop soon

🙂

Happy Wednesday!!

Can’t wait to show you pictures of the party
