{Real Parties} Under the Sea Party

I came across this party the other day and had to show all of you!  Check out the giant octopus!  WOW!  Now, I'm terrified of balloons - absolutely petrified.  It is a childhood fear that I never got over and the reason why the likelihood of seeing them at one of my child's parties is nill.  But, this is just incredible.  Kari did a wonderful job creating a that under the sea feel indoors!  Great job!  Check out her Mawster Parties Blog!

Tori is now 6 but if I had to pick my favorite birthday party of hers it would definitely be the "Under the Sea" party we had for her 5th birthday. Her birthday is in October (the week before Halloween) and we typically host a huge Halloween party at our house so it can be tricky squeezing both parties in such a short time. We ended up not having our Halloween party that year but I had already decided to have Tori's party at the community center just in case :)
The highlight of the party was the giant pink octopus made out of balloons. It was huge! There were lots of games and crafts to keep the children busy as well. We had sand art, a fishing game, treasure box craft and a animal scavenger hunt outside. In addition, a pirate came to put on a show and we had a mermaid face painter. It was lots of fun.
