Under the Sea Birthday Party

Here is a Fun Birthday Party idea from Design Dazzle:

Here's todays party:

Ocean "ONE" derland
I linked to Jennifer Gesch's blog through one of her comments posted on my blog and came across this adorable first year birthday party she created for her son. Isn't this ocean party the cutest? A whale or under-the-sea theme is perfect for a one year olds birthday party. Beach pails and shovels with goodies inside were the fun favors the kids took home. Each bucket had a tag that said, "I hope that you had a Whale of a Time!" The pod of blue whale decorations was made using Terra cotta pots, chenille sticks, wiggly eyes, foam, blue paint and a hot glue gun! Clever, clever! Here's the scoop from Jennifer:
"Each "whale cone" held Crunch 'n Munch that guests could carry around and snack on." Everyday Celebrating posted a tutorial on how to make popcorn cones.

"One of my favorite decorations from the party was the time line that I made using ribbon, scrapbook paper and glitter sea creature shapes that I found at JoAnn Fabric back in January. The time line showcases pictures from birth, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 8 months, 10 months and 1 year."

Jennifer designed the whale invitations - loving the wording of the invite.

Time capsule idea:
Jennifer asked guests to bring items to be placed in a time capsule that represent 2009 (the year of his first birthday). The time capsule will be opened on her sons 18th birthday. Love, love, love it! Thanks so much - Jennifer! Check out her blog for more ocean "ONE"derland party photos.
