I’m excited to finally share the SHARK THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY I styled this past summer for my boys! Hopefully this party will help inspire and give ideas to anyone who is planning a shark party of their own!

I decided to plan a joint birthday party since both my boys celebrate their birthday in the same month….and it was twice the fun! I went with a grey, turquoise, orange, yellow, and navy blue color scheme and loved how the colors looked together! All in all it was a JAWESOME party!

Some of my favorite elements from this jawesome shark themed birthday celebration are:

  • Ombre painted table
  • Yellow striped party backdrop
  • Super fun dunk tank
  • The grey, turquoise, orange, yellow and blue candy
  • Amazing shark sugar cookies
  • Beach-inspired ombre cake
  • Candy shark tooth necklaces
  • Jumbo shark bounce house

I used a shark print flat sheet from Pottery Barn Kids, along with a giant hanging shark (also from Pottery Barn Kids) for the favor table backdrop.

I made shark infested jello bags with blue raspberry jello and shark gummy candies. I poured the jello mix into cello bags before it set, then added the shark gummy candies. I then taped the top of the bags to the edge of a shelf in my fridge, so the bags were hanging and the jello set right.
