Its a Beach Bash Birthday
Since we are not really limited with a particular color scheme, we are going with bright colors such as orange, pink, blue and yellow. I found 2 packs of 20 pk orange plates for $1 each. Orange is one of our high school colors and they were in the graduation aisle in seasoal. There are many luau and beach type items in seasonal as well. I thought the Surfs Up sign would be a cute decor item. I also found serving trays in various colors and a tiki plate. The pink item in the bottom right of the picture is a cardboard cupcake stand. She also picked up 2 packs of invitations. While they did not have invites that fit our theme, she did find one that she absolutely loved with dogs and cats in bright colors. I did not push to have a "beach invitation" for a couple of reasons. A big reason is the cost. 2 packs of invites were only $2. It would be hard to beat that price. Another reason is time. With end of school chaos, Beading for Autism, a garage sale and a dance recital in the next three weeks, I know my schedule is already pretty full. Sometimes its okay to give in.
I have many ideas that I do not have pictured yet. I have game ideas, food ideas, treat ideas. Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing those ideas here.
