Seahorse birthday cakes, menu, activities, favors and ideas
Whether you're entertaining by the sea or by the pool, a seahorse party is a unique
theme and lots of fun to create. For most of the under the sea theme you'll choose
seaweed greens and ocean blues, you should have a focal point like the bright and
cheery seahorse mylar balloon in sunset oranges and yellows, pictured, right. It's
double-sided, and sizeable at 35 inches. Just a few will do.
- Here are more ways to set a scene for an underwater wonderland that's
- Turn the tables to the sea. Lay a light green table cloth flat and layer it
with scrunched blue tulle. Sprinkle seahorse confetti, seahorse charms,
and small plastic seahorse toys. Safari makes several, pictured right and
available in our Seahorse party store. Mix your tablesetting with green
and blue paper plates and party cups, and serve blue party foods and
- Blow up dozens of ocean blue and sea green latex balloons so that they
float on your party sea floor. Guests will have fun kicking them about as
they "swim" for appetizers and drinks. All you need is a pump and
patience. The effect is well worth the effort. Note: latex balloons present
a choking hazard as kids may suffocate on broken balloons or balloons
they bite. Avoid the idea if you expect any guests under three. Discard
broken balloons and supervise children, especially those under eight.
- Streamers hanging from the ceiling are an obvious choice for a seaweed
sanctuary. For added texture, buy a rolls of iridescent cellophane in blues
and greens, unroll and cut into long strips and tape to the ceiling. Nets
intended for balloon drops work better than fishing nets.
- Get out the bubbly. Sure you can pour Champagne for the adults, but be
sure to rent a bubble maker or buy one from Amazon.
- Get to Ikea! Buy the popular Ikea hanging storage in bright green, lower
left, as it provides a festive backdrop and is decoration that doubles as
something useful after the party. Just $4.99 each, use them to tuck fishy
toys for guests to discover.
- Blow it up. Buy inflatable seahorses and hang them from the ceiling. Set a
splashy scene with a seahorse play center, pictured left. This gift for the
birthday kid doubles as a display at your party. Fill it with ice and use it as
a prop for drinks, or place packages inside the rainbow as guests arrive.
Even if you aren't having a pool party, the Seahorse bop bag for pool fun
is just $3.99, pictured left. Another fun option for decoration and gift
combo is the Seahorse Jumbo Rider, pictured right.
