Today’s winning party feature goes to this fantastic SURF’S UP BEACH PARTY submitted by Paisley Petal EventsSo cuteThe homemade wooden surf boards kill me! I love the orange, green and blue color scheme…and the M&M shots! The invitation is perfect {made by Chachke Designs}. This would be a great end of summer party {sigh}.

“For the main table, I used a white tablecloth with a simple blue net as an overlay to give it more of a beachy feel and created the “Hit the Beach” banner out of scrapbook paper.  I couldn’t find printables to match the theme/colors exactly, so I created the dessert labels myself using a digital paper design.  But, Sarah (who made the invitation) now has matching printables, so you can order everything for your party from her!”

“For the desserts, I went to my wonderful cake designer, Sprinklebelle Cakes, for some fondant surfboard and shark cupcakes.  I sent her a picture of the surfboards and just told her to make something that matched the colors, and as usual, I absolutely LOVED them!”

    Like the boards !

  12. Colleen says:

    This may be a silly question, What did you use to make the surf boards or are they actually surf boards.

    My 6 year old son is OBSESSED with sharks. His birthday is in October, which is hardly beach season in the mountains LOL, but I am going to do a shark themed party. I love so many elements shown here. I think we’ll do surfboards with bites taken out of them.

    Hi! I was wondering what did you make the surf boards out of? How did you make them

  23. […] Esta mesa super fofa foi toda produzida no estilo faça-você-mesmo. Na mesa foi usada uma toalha branca com uma rede de pesca jogada por cima para trazer o ar de praia para a festa. No fundo de mesa, pranchas feitas de compensados de madeira cortados no formato de pranchas e pintados à mão + bandeirolas. Na frente da mesa, lanternas de papel nos tons da festa foram espalhadas pelo chão para um efeito lúdico e colorido. E na mesa, a paleta de cores está presente nas guloseimas, fitas e papelaria. Ficou o máximo! (fonte) […]
