havin‘ fun in the pool…
i covered these adorable tarts {that my sisters best friend made} with whip cream, kiwi’s, and a mango syrup. they were so yummy!

i got this unfinished surf board on ebay a few years ago..and painted it…

i made the cupcake toppers out of colorful cut up straws {and paper and cake’s adorable printables}…

we covered the cake with brown sugar for ‘sand’…
i stuck pinwheels on top for an added beach effect :).

    Great party!
    I have a tip for you and your readers.

    Next time you are planning a party with several people at the same time you should check out Zorap. It allows you to have a video conversation with anyone you invite to join you in your room. During your conversation you can do things like share videos, photos and just talk through the party ideas.

    I admit I represent Zorap, in full disclosure. I have used it myself to keep in touch with my wife and kids while traveling for work and it is great.

    The really cool thing is that Zorap has recently announced that it is available on Facebook as an application you can use on your profile page.

    Anyway, check it out and see if you find Zorap as useful as I do.

    You can find the Zorap Facebook app at: http://apps.facebook.com/zorapapp/

    You can also use the Zorap website as well at: http://www.zorap.com

    Just an idea

    That is SO clever to use a beach ball for the invites. You could just write the info on a regular beach ball and send it deflated, too, instead of buying from Oriental Trading.

    Thanks for sharing!!!
