Under the Sea Birthday Party
Under the Sea Birthday Party Details:
“Vivian’s second birthday celebration was a vibrant under-the-sea themed event, worthy of a princess!
Guests entered the party (and the ocean!) by walking down the boardwalk and through a 13′ sand castle. Next, they were greeted with pineapple lemonade cocktails at “The Sand Bar.” Finally, they dined upon a Caribbean themed seafood feast under the sea, while listening to the island tunes of a steel drum player.
Custom, handmade dried floral arrangements in the shapes of colorful seashells and a large beluga whale hung in the middle of the serpentine table. This was designed to mimic the waves of the ocean. Plus, a runner of pastel-colored shells, sand dollars, and starfish ran alongside them. There was an adorable pink octopus cake holding a balloon and a number “2” sparkler candle. Plus, there was a custom built 3D coral reef photo booth for guests to enjoy, while a school of fish swam along the side of the party.
Each child received their own sea creature backpack. The bags were in the shape of a pink octopus, blue shark or orange crab. Plus, they were personalized with the guest’s names and filled with ocean-themed activities and games.
This backyard celebration was made even more special for two reasons: First, all decor and props (the 3D photo booth, sand castle entrance, the sand bar & backdrop, wooden fish, tent installation, etc.) were designed, built & installed by Vivian’s mother and her grandfather, and second, it was the first time that the entire family had been together in almost two years due to COVID, which was even more reason for celebration!” – Ashley | Heleringer Events
