Dive Into This Underwater Birthday Party

Join us for a swimmingly good time at this under-the-sea themed bash, complete with a fish-shaped cake. See how we used Martha’s Celebrations collection of party decor and essentials (available at Michaels!) to create a festive space fit for any birthday celebrant.  

Ocean Hues

To set the scene, make a splash with hanging decorations in sea-worthy shades of blue and nautical-stenciled table accents. For extra pizazz, layer multiple pieces from Martha’s decor kit and hang them over the party room entrance or string along the gift table (which can double as the perfect photo backdrop!). 

Gather Round

Keep the party fun and stress-free with self-serve drink dispensers and sweet treat displays sprinkled throughout the event space. Accident-proof and kid-friendly materials like chipboard and melamine are ideal for place settings and serveware ensuring everyone has a good time. 

A Tide of Treats

Create a menu focused on small bites made from kid-approved ingredients, like marshmallow squares and watermelon boats, so party attendees of all ages can easily grab a snack between activities. Here are a few of our favorite ocean-themed recipes to set things sailing (plus, they're super easy to prepare in large batches):

Reel in the Fun

To keep little hands entertained, set up an arts and crafts table for coloring and DIY projects that require minimal materials and are easy to clean up. For an interactive activity that also doubles as a “thank-you” favor, consider a homemade photo booth. Martha’s assortment of balloons and hanging lanterns can be arranged into a backdrop and sea creature costumes can be crafted with fabric, embellishments, and a little imagination!

“Sea” You Next Time

Thank your guests for attending with an extra cupcake or a bundle of candies packaged in Martha’s durable favor bags and boxes. Place them near the door so attendees don’t forget to grab one on their way out.
