{real parties} under the sea

As promised, here are the photos from my nephew's 1st birthday party!

My sister-in-law, Jocasta, put together this gorgeous under the sea party...thank you for letting me share your many lovely ideas!!

First peek through to the party room! The doorway was adorned with garlands created with twine and party dots. The table centrepiece was a lovely old treasure chest filled with treasure that the children had fun exploring! And spot the platter of yummy gummi fish!

Jocasta always makes amazing cupcakes...and we were not disappointed!! How adorable are these octopus cupcakes? I just love simple, but so amazingly effective!!

...and sweet little fish and starfish cupcakes...yum!!
A drink fountain flowed with 'ocean spray'...a gorgeous touch! And bunches of blue and green balloons were dotted throughout the party room, adding 'bubbles' to the ocean.

Dixie drumsticks look just like little fish...too cute!!

Guests had a lovely time playing lots of games and they each had their faces painted with cute under the sea characters.

Fun under the sea crackles, created with rice bubbles, white chocolate, and silicone moulds.

Delicious 'fish' cake created with vanilla sponge, frosted with butter icing and finished with smartie 'scales'.

Lovely little noodle boxes decorated with shimmering fish added to the room decor and were party favors for the guests to take home after the party.

A beautiful party Jocasta, we all had a wonderful afternoon!
