An Under the Sea Party

I stumbled across this fish cake on Pinterest the other day and fell in love. It would be so fun to plan an Under the Sea party around it. You could serve sushi and hang paper nets everywhere. I also love the idea of using clear balloons as bubbles! Have you ever thrown an ocean-themed party?

Modern Spiderman Party

When it comes to kids parties I want something that looks cute and modern, is easy to put together and that my kids will love. Now that my kids are getting old enough to choose the kind of birthday party they want it usually involves some character or trademarked cartoon. My favorite thing to do is to buy a few carefully chosen store bought pieces and then add a few easy handmade details to make it special. For this Spiderman party, I picked up all the basic supplies (plates, cups, straws, Spiderman costume, balloons) from Target. They have a tons of different themed party stuff!  Then I made a photobooth backdrop by painting a cityscape on white butcher paper. We taped it to the ground and had the kids lie upside down so it looked like they were swinging through the city. I also transformed some red and blue silly string into “spidey spray” with simple hand-painted paper labels. As a fun drink surprise, I froze mini plastic spiders into ice cubes.  Then we built a giant web in our hallway using black yarn. All the kids had to crawl through the web to get into the kitchen for snacks! The whole thing took less then two hours to put together.
