Have we mentioned that the beach ball party is one of our top sellers during the summer?  If you’ve been following along all week, I’m pretty sure we’ve mentioned it every day so far!  This beach ball party in basic primary colors might take the cake for our most popular beach ball theme to date:

Whether you’re going with primary or pastel, we think this food spread featured last year on our blog is perfect for a party that’s sure to get wet:

All that splishing and splashing at the beach ball party is bound to wear out even the toughest tike.  Let’s heat up the grill and get this food menu going!

We envision a delightful burger bar complete with all the fixin’s.  A safe bet with something like this is WHITE (as shown in the photo).  White plates, white bowls, white serving dishes etc. make the table feel cohesive to the naked eye, but meanwhile, for all we know this could be a mash up of tableware.  Keeping it white is safe, clean and allows the food to shine.

And how about some fruit, veggies, sand buckets filled with crackers/chips and a couple of sweets on the side?

1. fruit 2. candy slice image, 3. beach ball cake pops, 4. hunting for the source here, please let us know in the comments if you know who it belongs to!

For drinks we spotted these beach ball water bottles and fell in love!  How awesome would it be to have a few pitchers of drinks to choose from and kiddos can keep there water bottles filled to the brim all afternoon long?  In addition these scuba sprites are pretty darn darling:

We have a couple beach ball parties available in shop, but we recently put a spin on an old fave that we thought was SO cute it deserved it’s own feature on the blog.  Checkout the before here:

Easily one of our top sellers during the summer months for girl beach-y parties.  Now checkout the after:

Just a hint of blue and it actually changes things up quite a bit, right!  We love incorporating the “water element” that the blue adds since afterall, odds are that most beach ball parties will be in the presence of either a pool or an ocean.  Here’s more to get your mouth watering:

This Week’s customer party comes to us from Adiel Emir’s mom who used our Beach Ball decor at her son’s 3rd birthday party at… of all places… a beach!  That’s one heck of a backdrop!:

The great thing about having a party like this right there at the beach is other than the planning involved with getting everything from home to your destination, once you set yourself up, your guests are pretty good to go!  Make sure the invites encourage swimsuits, hand the kiddos a sand bucket, and leave them to their own devices!

 Even better, the mess gets left in the beach trash cans and you come home to a clean, dry home!  I’m sure the thought of this put a smile on Adiel Emir’s family’s faces!

If you are loving that cake, here’s a link to something similar and if you’re loving our decor you can nab your own beach ball bday decor here!  You. Are. Welcome.  And don’t forget, all you have to do is leave a comment on any post this week in order to be entered to win a digital “you print” invite to any party in our shop!  We’ll announce the winner on Friday.  Good luck!
