BEACH BALL BASH



This party was inspired by the classic beach ball, the vibrant colors red, green, blue and yellow. We used those colors in the umbrella and beach pail centerpieces. We hand folded each napkin to look like a Hawaiian shirt. The buffet was dressed with a lifeguard chair, beach balls and buoys.

I absolutely love this. Too cute. My fav. is the lifeguard chair on the table (where in the world did you find that?)!

I also love the napkins folded into shirts. When I was at the school of medicine I tried to convince them to fold black and white striped napkins using this fold for a sports themed event at the NCAA. They didn't go for it. But I think it's just too darn awesome. You are so clever.

Ha! Let me just tell you...that took FOREVER to fold. After that I thought..I need to charge more when I do that. Live and learn! The lifeguard chair is a prop my husband built. Let me know if you need it for something :-)

Arg! Your cleverness knows no bounds. I absolutely love the umbrellas in the sandbuckets, and of course those napkins are delish!

This is so amazing! Could you please tell me where you found the umbrellas?

Yes, me too! Would love to know where you found the umbrellas and how you set them in the buckets. I know that can't really be just sand.

I love everything - especially the centerpeice with the beach umbrellas. How did you get it to stand and where did you find umbrellas that were tall enough and light enough to be used as centerpieces?!
