The Dessert Table doubled as the Party Favor Bar. I wanted to cut down on the amount of sweets at the party since my "clients" were only three ; ), so I did the favor bar in conjunction with the desserts. The kids took a bucket and were able to pick and choose prizes to take home. Since we live in Maryland, home of the blue crab, I obviously HAD to use a crab basket as a cake stand and centerpiece.
Cupcake Cookie Toppers by The Cookie Jar
"Shark Attack Snack Mix. Includes Sharks, Fish and Life Preservers. Don't swim too far from the shore!"
Cookies to match the Cupcake Toppers, also by The Cookie Jar!
And then our Menu:
Sand Dollars, also known as Pop Chips.
Sparkling Octopus Ink
A re-purposed Halloween Trick or Treat bag from PBKids became our napkin & utensil holder
And of course, nothing better to wash your lunch down with than "Freshly Bottled Ocean Water"
"GOLD FISH BAR: Take a box and make a mix, Sea creatures are the perfect hunger fix!"
The kids each made their own "mini" ocean to take home.
So there you have it, we all had fun and I am now the very proud Mommy of a THREE year old!! Oh my gosh, how is he three already??... Look out for A Super Jackson Saves The Day Party... in another 11 or so months. : )
