Beach Birthday for Lily


I was introduced to Shira through one of my Boston pals. She has become a devoted follower of my blog and emailed me looking for some fun ideas for her daughter's birthday. Since Shira and her family live in Florida, she is planning a party by the pool in October. (Ummm....jealous here in Boston where we are thinking about fleece!)

The evite from COCODOT

The fabric from CALICO CORNERS as a runner over a simple blue tablecloth.

NAPKIN RINGS that are so fun and give me flash backs to the 80's on Cape Cod.

These napkins from PREPPY PRINCESS

These cute MINI LANTERNS  in white for votives on the table.

For place cards, menus and other fun details I love this downloadable set from PLUM PARTY.

MASON JARS for the flowers with a mix of blue and white hydrangeas.

Personalized BEACH THEME cookies in wrapped in cello bags with a blue ribbon for each guest as a party favor. I would monogram with Lily's initials.

Lily loves dolphins and the color blue, so I thought this PINATA would be perfect for her. 

To fill the pinata, how about these SILLY BANDS

And assorted ocean themed CANDY

Some cute stuffed DOLPHIN toys

Rather than one large cake, I would create a cupcake tower with fish inspired cupcakes. I am sure your local bakery can come up with something similar to these from COCO CAKE CUPCAKES.

Shira - I hope this provides some fun ideas and Happy Birthday Lily!
