Easton’s Beach Themed 2nd Birthday Party

SPLISH SPLASH! It was a birthday bash! Celebrated the ocean blue, because Easton Allen turned 2!
Easton loves the sand and beach so we had a pool party, slip and slide, and sand box fun! Unfortunately, you can only prepare and plan for a party so much and then rest of it is just pure luck. Well, my luck ran out because it rained the WHOLE morning of Easton’s OUTSIDE 2nd birthday party. 😦 There was no time to decorate and it just did NOT go as planned. But I think it turned out fine after making the best of a bad situation and the birthday boy had a blast. That is all that mattered to me!

This is all I could put out on the table and right before they ate so it didn’t get soggy and wet. The rain was kind of off and on. Moving on…The colors were beach ball themed. The center pieces (in which I didn’t get close pictures of) were palm tree balloon weights from the dollar tree and a glass jar with a goldfish in it. I also found beach themed plates, leis, and straws with pineapples on them at the Dollar Tree too.

We had to move the table with the food on it under the ledge of the house so it wouldn’t get rained on. They had “pool water” ( half blue Hawaiian Punch and half lemonade) and Strawberry lemonade to drink.

On The Menu: Octodogs- Hot dogs cut in half and then eight legs snipped on one side. I boiled them until they were done and VOILA! Octodogs!

I made aqua blue cupcakes with blue icing. For the sand I used brown sugar but crushed up vanilla wafers would work just as well. The blue frosting came with fish sprinkles so I put a few of those on each cupcake and stuck an umbrella in. For the cupcake stand I hot glued a glass candle holder on stove burner covers I painted white. I got it all from the Dollar Tree.

On The Menu: Beach Sand- vanilla pudding with a sand cookie topping. The sand is made from a bag of vanilla wafers and about 4 Oreos put in a blender until crushed well.

The welcome sign sitting on the table when they first arrived. That was where everyone left their towels and sunscreen.
