Summer may be coming to an end soon, but I still have some summer parties to share with you. None of my kids have summer birthdays but luckily we get to live vicariously through several friends who throw fun water themed outdoor parties. There is nothing better on a hot day than a bunch of kids in swimsuits squealing and running through water. My friend’s daughter wanted a dolphin party this year. She put together this darling Under the Sea set up.
Varying shades of blue streamers and tissue poms created a wavy ocean backdrop to her dessert table.
Printable cupcake toppers featured cute dolphins and seashells.
My table centerpiece circles looked adorable all dressed up with glittery die cut accents. This number 5 with star fish attached was so fun.
Dipped oreos in the party colors with contrasting sprinkles made a perfect under the sea treat.
Of course gummy sharks were a must!
Pretzel rods dipped in melting candy with sprinkles were adorable with the life saver accent.
A sandy beach(brown sugar) of candy melt fish and shells and starfish cookies were a perfect beachy treat.
Streamers were twisted and lined the walls to create an under the sea seaweed feel through the whole house.
The dolphin princess birthday girl wore this sweet seashell covered headband.
Seaweed grapes were made for a super quick and easy snack using skewers and a clear vase.
Goldfish were given a nautical feel in this awesome clear jar.
This beautiful shell watermelon was a piece of art. It almost looked to pretty to eat. Almost!
Printable dolphin water bottle labels made drinks easy for guests to grab while the played.
Outside this fun photo backdrop was created.
Various props were available including a life vest, beachball, sunglasses, and other paper props.
A gift table was decorated with netting and my printable dolphin happy birthday banner.
Guest tables were dressed up with more of our printable dolphin party centerpiece circles and various die cut images. The tables had more of the netting used on top of tablecloths for a beachy feel.
The highlight of the party of course, was this water slide! The kids stayed cool splashing for hours. This right here is the perk of a summer party. No activities needed. Just provide water!
Each guest took home a mini sand pail filled with treats.

My best friend’s daughter is OBSESSED with unicorns. The party was a mix of pastel watercolors and gold glitter accents. This party had everything any little girl would want. Unicorns everywhere, sparkle, lots of yummy treats, and crafting.
This unicorn was found at Target last year. It was not however nearly this cute. He was all beige. A sweet flower mane and pink unicorn horn were transplanted to create the focal point of the unicorn party table.
Isn’t this cake dreamy?!?! My favorite cake lady made the beautiful cake base and mom added all kinds of yummy treats and the adorable cake topper to create a masterpiece.
Fruity pebble rice crispy treats and candy melt coated popcorn were 2 of the yummy unicorn treats served.
Cute mint green popcorn boxes were dressed up with my printable unicorn cupcake toppers.
The girls each took home a favor box featuring one of my printable unicorn favor tags. Each included a plush unicorn, unicorn emoji cup, and unicorn cotton candy with another printable favor tag.
I love the combo of the pink, purple, and mint green used on this party table,
This sweet space was created for the birthday girl to open gifts. Our printable I (heart) unicorns banner and amazing unicorn balloon tower were perfect together.
Even the dolls had a unicorn party.
Lots of plush unicorn friends were a part of the festivities.
The printable unicorn centerpiece circles were used on several tables throughout the party.
Face painting and crafts were next on the party agenda. This adorable unicorn horn was added to headbands for all of the guests to wear. So cute!!!
Last was a unicorn piñata!
Such a beautiful party for a beautiful girl!

Our little monster turned 3! Monster has always been a nickname for our youngest, so it seemed like a perfect theme. I knew I wanted a variety of friendly monsters and bright colors. I LOVE how this party turned out.
Classic white cupcakes are dressed up with printable monster cupcake toppers. I love the big eyeball. haha! I created these fun cupcake stands by covering a box in fur fabric. It added a fun monster feel and a great pop of color.
This cute little monster cake was one of my favorite items of the party. Blue for my son’s favorite color. There are lots of tutorials on pinterest to make these yourself.
One of the things I loved about this theme was all of the cute treats that could be made. Wilton sugar eyeballs in several sizes were added to colored sugar cookies for a silly monster cookie.
Dipped pretzels are a favorite at my parties. I purchase pretzel rods at my grocery store and dip them in melted Wilton’s white candy melts. Then top with sprinkles of your choice. I added them to clear jar with eyeballs to make bright monster hair.
My son requested a party hat last minute. I found a plain blue party hat at my local party store and dressed it up with googly eyeballs, a card stock mouth, and fur accents left over from my boxes.
Isn’t that hat the cutest? Ok maybe the birthday boy adds to the cute factor. 🙂 I found his adorable shirt on etsy from Heather Rogers Designs. It was perfect!
I created a kids party table with simple centerpieces made from my printable party circles in colored containers and monster sticker sheets.
We had an Adopt a Monster table for guests to take home a party favor as they left. My printable monster centerpiece circles created a cute display.
Each favor had a mini plush monster, bubbles with a printable label, and a monster sucker. They were packaged with my printable monster favor tags.
A friend and I created this monster bean bag toss. We used a large card board box and craft paint. Pizza pans and cookie sheets made perfect stencils for our smaller monsters. We used an exacto knife to cut out their mouths. We cut out the horns, teeth, and eyes from card stock to add some extra details. This was such an inexpensive party game and super fun to make.
Around Halloween I found fun monster photo props at Target. My kids always love taking photos with friends using fun props. It has become a regular activity at our parties.
Our monster party was a big hit! I had one happy little boy. I hope you found some fun ideas for your next monster party.
Happy Birthday Little Monster!

Months ago my friend Dara and I made a long drive to Hobby Lobby. It is almost 2 hours from our homes. If you are lucky enough to have ever gone to a Hobby Lobby you know why we went. We found so many fun things. We came across some adorable lemonade decorations. I mentioned to her that I have always wanted to do a lemonade party. It has never happened as my daughter has a December birthday. We decided to have a little lemonade party with 4 sweet friends. What a perfect thing to do on a summer day.
Dara found a great photo of a lemonade stand made from crates on pinterest. She went to work and created the most adorable stand. It was perfect for all of the party decor.
We set up the stand in my backyard. The shelves on the stand gave us places to add lots of lemon accents.
The top of the stand features my printable lemonade banner and these mini poms.
We served adorable pink cupcakes and lemon bars for our party treats. Dress up a store bought cupcake with a polka dot cup and printable lemonade stand cupcake toppers.
A cute chalkboard sign was the perfect frame for a printable lemonade sign. Every lemonade stand needs to tell customers how much each glass costs.
Clear glass milk bottles wrapped in my printable lemonade water bottle labels created the cutest drink containers.
Pink and yellow layered tissue poms added a whimsical soft burst of color along side a jar of lemons.
We created a tea party type atmosphere in my backyard. Dara’s cute Pottery Barn table and pink chairs could not have been more perfect.
A baby pink burlap table runner was layered with a lemon slice cloth napkin to create a sweet tablescape.
Each place setting had a placecard telling the girls where to sit, a fun pink and yellow pinwheel, silverware wrapped in my printable napkin wrap, a jar of sweet lemonade, and a favor box.
Dress up a mason jar with a ribbon, printable cupcake topper, and colored paper straw. I love how just a few little touches create such a custom fancy drink.
Lemon drops in clear boxes were the perfect sweet treat for the girls to take home. Just add a ribbon and printable lemonade favor tag.
The center of the table featured my printable lemonade centerpiece set. A simple yellow metal bucket made it pop. Make the circles double sided so guests can enjoy it from both sides of the table.
The girls were so excited to dig into these yummy treats.
They had fun just being giggly girls. It was so fun watching them enjoy all the little details.
We enjoyed lots of yummy sweet lemonade of course.
And went back to pour even more.
I think they would have spent all day playing at this lemonade stand if they could have.
Their dolls even got in on the fun.
Our lemonade stand party was a big hit. Perfect for a backyard treat with friends, birthday party, or even a lemonade stand in the front yard. How could neighbors resist this cute lemonade stand?
My printable lemonade party decor package is available now in my etsy shop. It comes with all the printable decor you saw above plus a Happy Birthday Banner.
2 matching invitation styles are also available.
