Under the Sea Party

When we were in Alabama we picked up a few goodies for Annie to host a beach luncheon with her friends.






So what do little girls eat at a beach lunch?

Sweedish Fish in Jello

Watermelon Sudaes

Cheese Kabobs


Peanut Butter & Celery "Seaweed"

Tuna Salad & Noodles

& Princess Cakes for dessert





The girls each loved their "message in a bottle." 





After lunch they filled
their little bottles with sand & tiny shells.


(Cracker Barrel Syrup Bottles)


The girls were bonded with matching bracelets.


We had a lovely afternoon
& I got the best thank you ever...a concert!

When I was folding all that blue fabric up
Bo said, "I want to get on there."
I said, "You don't get on this, it's fabric"
"Then why was I just on it &
Rocco was pulling me all over the house?"
"That is a very good question, Bo."

I love Bo! LOL The party decorations were beautiful and I admit, I clicked to enlarge the pic. of Annie reading her message in the bottle... trying to be nosey and read her message. It didn't work. :o( You are the BEST mom, ever! Your kids are building so many good memories.

ha-ha! Those boys are a hoot! What a lovely, beachy party for Annie and her friends. I think you should be a party planner, Libbie! Seriously, you have the best get togethers. This is even something I would love -- I'm all about themes and colors when it comes to gifts and gatherings. Have a terrific Tuesday! Tammy

I love the blue "drapery" and the themed food. The note in the bottle is a nice touch too. I'm sure the girls will treasure them for a long time.
