It all started with an invitation.
We chose our colors, I pulled lawn fawn papers and colored crabs and sandcastles aplenty.
I used the new lawn fawn set, "life is good" for all of the paper decorations, and no black outlines on any of the stamped images.
There's a video on the lawn fawn blog today that shows how I colored my images by stamping them first in a very light color. I wanted the entire party to look airy and... beachy!
The new louie's abcs and party banners were so perfect for creating the focal point of the entire table.
ok. who am I kidding? the focal point of the table is always the cake,
with the bright flip flops on top.
life is good...
I love that crab topper!
I found an amazing tutorial on Studio DIY for making these "beach balls." She put hers on a garland, I put mine in a watery-blue dish. I love them.
I only made a few food labels, and mostly just to pull the same darker blue outline that you saw on the banner to the front of the table.
I didn't properly blend the waves on purpose. promise. I thought it looked more interesting, like choppy waves.
For the favor bags, I cut a silhouette beach bag shape and attached simple tags.
I hope you've enjoyed the glimpse into our beach party! It was so much fun to create!
