She decided she wanted a summer surfin theme. I think it was in hopes of bringing some sunshine to Western Washington and I am happy to report that it worked! The sun came out for the day and we were able to enjoy it! The kids also created a mini surfboard as their take home project. We picked up some foam boards and let the kids design them.
Here are a few photos of the party. I will say that the older she gets the less she likes my camera in her face. She used to love it.
Then I started the task of creating her "real" surfboards for the decorations! Oh my goodness let me tell you have thankful I am for my husband! He cut out all the surfboards for me and he let me invade his "office" for the week so I could get the surfboards completed.
My son and his girlfriend helped me with the wave surfboard and were pretty proud of their work.
Here are few more photos of the fun party favorites that I created for the kids:
It was so much fun to help her celebrate her birthday and so much work! Whew, I needed a really long nap after that week.
If you would like the full directions for any of the super fun projects please leave me a comment and I will email them to you!
