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.

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?

2 matching invitation styles are also available.

Summer is coming to an end but I am enjoying it through this party just a little bit longer. Camping is one of our favorite summer activities. What is more perfect than a Camping Birthday Party! Turn your backyard into your own campground and add our printable decorations for a fun theme. If you live in places where summer weather lasts into the September and October there is still time to host your own camping party.
I love this cute camping themed party table complete with picnic basket, our printable camping party centerpiece and happy birthday banner in the background. This creative mom utilized our printable camping party cupcake toppers and party circles in lots of places throughout the party.
I am always looking for creative ways to feed guests at my parties. Of course camping means roasting hotdogs over a fire.
Serve them up in a metal pie tin for easy clean up and a fun rustic look. Even party food can fit your theme.
Who says smores have to be plain? Create a gourmet smores station for your party guests. Who needs birthday cake?
I love how this customer went all out with the decor. Even the dolls got in on the camping party fun.
This cute camping favor station featured flashlights, a bear needing adopted, and trail mix. See the cute mini banner? That is made from our printable cupcake toppers. What a fun use for them.
Having an activity to keep the kids busy is a must for any party. These girls enjoyed a scavenger hunt around their campground. What a perfect party game alternative.
An outdoor movie is the perfect end to a camping slumber party.
Treat your guests with a yummy yogurt parfait bar for a quick post camping breakfast.
Camping cupcake toppers in cute mini cinnamon rolls.
Check out our full printable camping birthday party decoration package. A boy version is coming soon!
And don’t forget a matching invitation.
