I’ve already posted the invites, costumes, party favors, games & activities, next up is decorations! The first idea I saw and loved was to recreate the Octopod’s 3 large computer screens that make up HQ. I tried taking pictures of them, but they didn’t turn out so well, so here are the digital images I printed out, framed and hung. If you know the show (which we do…oh so well), the screen on the left has undersea images. The right screen is random smaller screens, which I used to my advantage and put pictures from each year of Cooper’s life. The middle screen is where they post the creature reports, which I also used to my advantage. Over-achieving me wrote a creature report song for Cooper, he is the birthday boy after all. I designed it to look like a creature card. Here they are!
The next main area was the cake table. I purchased some green Martha Stewart lanterns from Walmart, great price! Other than those, I went off of the invites for color scheme. It ended up being orange, teal and green. Here it is…
and some balloons. I have two kid-sized tables I made last summer for a PJ’s & Pancakes party that continue to come in handy. That’s where we had all the plastic bins for the sea creature game, and, kids could gather around to eat there afterwards. I had teal tablecloths on those that help bring a splash of color as well.
I think the house looked adorable. I had hoped to do a little more, but when I calculated the guest list
that certainly did not total 30 adults and 28 kids, I realized I needed to cut back a little. Hope you enjoyed a little peek into our birthday adventures. Up tomorrow? Food!
