Shark Party!!!

Brennan turns 4 in a week and we had his birthday party this weekend. He really wanted a shark birthday party. I had a lot of fun planning this party and thought it turned out pretty cute.

Brennan saw this cake online and really had his heart set on it. My sweet friend, Nicole, did a fabulous job and Brennan squealed when he saw it.

I made some signs for the party since the park we had it at is a little hard to see from the road.
My 1st attempt at doing water bottle labels, and I think they turned out pretty cute.

Shark gummies

I'm not sure if you can see, but Dustin cut shark bites out of the sandwiches

I made some shark infested jello...these were a big hit!

I also discovered you via pinterest...great photos! Thank you for sharing your super creative ideas. I thought my husband and I were the only ones (crazy enough) to celebrate Shark Week. Happy to learn otherwise. :)

Awsome ideas! What did you use for the shark fin in the jello?

*Tonya I ordered this shark fin mold off of Amazon and used black cherry jello to create the fin

Love, Love,Love... I am planning a Shark party for my son in july and love this post! Where did you fine the shark fruit snacks?

Kelly said...

Courtney: I found the fruit snacks at Kroger grocery store. They were store brand. Amazon had some name brand ones, but were sold out when I needed them.
