Under the Sea Birthday Party and a Sand Castile Cake

Under the Sea Party and a Sand Castile Cake

So, I know it has been a couple months since Soph's birthday but I am finally getting to posting about her party.  So, without further ado...

This year she picked an under the sea theme. I was so excited to plan this party, and I had so, so, soooo much fun putting it together!

Cake, blue 'Sea-Water' Lemonade, Ocean jello with fish, strawberries and watermelon (just becasue they are her favorite), and chocolate dipped pretzels.

Here is the cake I made!  I'll give directions shortly...

Isn't it soooooo cute,     I LOVED how it turned out!

Ok, I just made a few random shapes (I made an 8x8 square, and a few half circles.)

After they were cooled I frosted them and sprinkled with graham cracker crumbs.  (RIGHT, graham cracker crumbs..  I thought it was genius!)

And finally, for the 'bubbles' I used marshmallows.  I rolled them in my wet hands and then in sprinkles.  WHAT?!?  Seriously, I loved this cake.

Here's a close up of the jello,

and pretzels.
And how can you go wrong with chocolate dipped pretzels.  Sweet and salty, right?!?  Amazing!

And, as always, we have frosting and plain cupcakes so the kids can decorate their own.  It is always a popular activity.

And you have to have all the fixin's...

For decorations, I stuck with blue and white tulle...

balloons, streamers, bunting...

And a little sign out front for the guests.

I seriously loved this party.  It was so much fun.  

Do you have a favorite party you have planned?
