Shark Week Party 2017. Each year for Shark Week we host a fun viewing party, and this year is no different! We LOVE Shark Week!Oriental Trading Company was kind enough to send me almost everything I needed for our party, and I’m just going to say, it is so nice to shop from your phone in your pj’s in bed…and a few days later you have a box of party on your door! Of course, this party was hosted in our outdoor party space. But, I didn’t want to have the pallet wall as the backdrop for a shark party. I ordered a plastic scene setter from OTC and stapled it to the wall. It looked so cool. Since it was longer than my wall is tall, I used it as a simple table cover too. I hung sea gulls from the ceiling for a little beach vibe and fun.
I anchored the bar and the backdrop with wooden crates to mimic crab and lobster traps. I filled glass jars with our favorite salt water taffy, and Goldfish crackers. A metal beach bucket was filled with edible sand and topped with shark’s tooth candy necklaces.
I filled a metal bucket with water and fun shark shaped water guns for the kids (and adults). They’re as fun as they are cool looking!A simple grocery store cake was re-frosted with blue icing and topped with a paper wave and shark fin I cut out with my Cricut. More edible sand was used around the base of the cake.
The biggest hit of the party was the shark photo op. I attached it to the party space bar, and left room for guests to hide behind it. My son is always up for a silly photo and jumped right in for those pics!
Small canvas bags were stamped and tagged, and filled with candy and shark’s teeth, and propped on the wooden crates as party favors. I also hung shark’s tooth necklaces from the other crates for the guests to take and wear at the party.
Our annual Shark Week Party was a big hit, and we have already started planning the next one!
