1960’s Surf Shack Birthday Party Details:
Robyn’s party description-
“When we were asked to create a 60s California Surfer party for a first birthday, we were beyond excited! We based the décor around the iconic southern California lifeguard tower with its cool blue hue and easily recognizable design. We found a replica of a SoCal lifeguard tower in a local shop and set it on a runner of sand fresh off the beach outside our door. A variety of shells were added to complete the effect. Each place was set with adorable surfer plates from Fire and Crème. Classic Ray-Ban- style sunglasses and mini beach balls decorated each plate, that sat on a raffia place mat. Surfboards and mini VWs with surfboards secured to their roofs served additional touches of 60s surfer fun.
Other Fabulous Party Elements:
Other touches included a Surf Report sign and a raffia table skirt that was converted into a Watch Me Grow photo wall of baby Micks month by month first year. We finished the décor with a HANG TEN balloon banner above a giant surfing poster. As the final touch, while the kids and adults had a ball playing in the giant ball pit and bouncy house, we streamed the movie Endless Summer on one of our play area walls while cranking Beach Boys tunes. After enjoying cupcakes topped with mini surfers, each child went home with a big bucket of sand toys and beach balls.”
