Party Ideas and Supplies for Your Lovely Celebrations
Tag Archives: Island Party Ideas
Last summer, I threw a backyard beach party for my son’s 5th birthday. We don’t live near an actual beach, so we improvised with an inflatable water slide, kiddie pool, slip ‘n slide, bubbles and lots of water toys! I found tons of ideas on Pinterest for beach party snacks and decorations, too. The cake was inspired by three different recipes: Teddy at the Beach by Betty Crocker, this Hawaiian Beach Cake, from Family Fun and this Kit Kat Cake!
Everyone loved this cake, and it was very easy to create! I just made two round cakes, frosted them with blue icing, and added Kit Kat bars around the outside of the cake, secured with ribbon. Next, I added brown sugar to half of the top of the cake to create a sandy beach. I used some decorative plastic palm trees and a drink umbrella to complete the beach scene. Finally, I crowded in lots of Teddy Graham beach bums ! Some were floating in fruit ring inner tubes, while others sunned on the beach on fruit-by-the-foot beach towels.
