Beachy Starfish Party

It's a Starfish, Sand, Beach Party!  Think driftwood, sand castles and fun. 
Let's start with the decor.

Sand castle centerpiece.  Click here.
Salt dough starfish.  Click here.
Sand stars.  Click here.
Driftwood star.  Click here.
We made the driftwood signs with a few nails and white paint.
Frames with seashells from Michaels.
Netting from Party City.
Onto the desserts!
My 'very talented' sister-in-law made this chocolately red velvet cake
with cream cheese frosting and graham cracker/brown sugar topping.
Doesn't it look just like sand?!  I loved it!


The 'rock looking things' in the middle were supposed to be
S'more Stars from this source.
Unfortunately my marshmallow 'stars' really wanted to be rocks.
They did taste amazing, though.
I also cut my Rice Crispy Treats into stars and set out some yogurt covered raisins.





Our Brunch Menu:

Make Your Own Omelets
Fresh Fruit
Star Pancakes

(AH) Awesome Husband made the pancakes look like stars.
I told you he was awesome!

Have you seen these fun Muffin Tin Omelets?  Original source- click here.
Step 1:  Have all omelet ingredients chopped and laid out.
Step 2:  Invite guests to put the ingredients they like in an assigned muffin cup.
Step 3:  Beat eggs, then pour the mixture to fill each muffin cup.
Step 4:  Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes.
They're the perfect size and it's so nice to have all the omelets done at the same time!
The table got a beachy treatment as well.
Netting, starfish, cork tiles (to look like sand), and seashells at each place setting.
I simply wrote names on the shells with a black Sharpie.

And of course I set up a photo booth
--this time with a beach umbrella. 
Smile everyone! 

Happy Birthday, Nana!  We love you!
