Under The Sea Water Party

Under the Sea Water Party | Marigold Mom

 This Under The Sea Water Party was a fun collaboration with some really great vendors. And probably one of my favorite events so far (though I usually think that about every event I do).  Monika, from Hello Brielle, and I wanted to give our kids the opportunity to have some fun, as well as cool off from the blazing hot SoCal weather with a water party.  A water theme only seemed appropriate for our water party, and since my son has really been into Finding Nemo lately, we decided to go with an Under the Sea theme.

  • Sea Creature Cookies
  • Fishy Fruit
  • 8-Legged Monsterella Sticks

Marisa from Cookies Gone Glam made these beautiful Sea Creature Cookies, which were a huge hit.  They were the perfect addition to our event. One of her designs even matched our invitation and backdrop!Under the Sea Water Party | Marigold Mom

Decor:

I truly love how the decor for this event came together.  The ombre scallop on Hello Brielle‘s invitation was my inspiration for the tablecloths and backdrop (which was also made from plastic tablecloths).  Other decorative elements were fish cutouts (purchased at Party City), balloon “bubbles,” streamer “seaweed,” puffball “anemones,” jellyfish lanterns (find Paper & Ink’s tutorial here), shells & starfish, and some real live fish (which have all taken up residency in my home and been named Nemo).

 Favors:

Our favors were mini edible aquariums.  Inside were nerds, swedish fish, a gummy shark, and a chocolate shell.  And to protect all that beautiful baby skin, we made sure to have sunscreen available.

 Activities: 

We planned a number of activities to keep the kiddos busy and cool throughout the party.  

Reel ‘Em In Gold-Fishing: Our most popular activity was probably the fishing.  We got a bunch of feeder fish from WalMart so the kids “fish” with nets and then take their fish home with them.  Though I don’t think any of those poor fish survived long enough to make it anyone’s home–if they didn’t end up in the grass, they got tossed around, dropped on the concrete, or left in the sun.  But the kids loved it!

  1. I don’t usually post comments but it must be said that you are my new she-ro. This is by far the most awesome under the sea party for toddlers that I’ve seen anywhere. I am going to attempt to duplicate this party for my toddlers. Thanks for posting this!

  2. Where did you find the glass jars for the party favors? Are they baby food jars? I love this idea! They turned out adorable, as did the entire party!

  3. This party came out great! I am planning my little girl’s first birthday and an doing an owl theme. I would like to do the table cloth that you made. Can you please share how you made it. Thanks in advance. Have a great night.

      Thanks so much, Erin! For the tablecloth, I bought 3 different plastic tablecloths, folded them width-wise, then used a plate to trace one scallop. I made one cut per folded tablecloth, so when it unfolded, it had a scalloped design (if you feel unsure of what you’re doing you can practice on paper first). Then I layered the tablecloths on top of each other (which was surprisingly difficult–make sure you have some help for that).
      Let me know if you have any other questions and good luck with your daughter’s party!
