I am so excited to share the first part of my son, Luke’s Preppy Plaid Surf Party with you. Come back Friday to see part 2. The inspiration for this preppy surf party came from his plaid Gap swim trunks. The crisp navy, orange and light blue color scheme and preppy prints are carried throughout the party in printables, food and decor. The boys loved playing with the bright blue and orange beach balls that covered the yard and pool area.
The dessert table was filled with beach inspired desserts including Ocean Water Jello Cups, Snow Cone Cupcakes, The orange candy on this table included beach balls salt water taffy and The Wedge sugared orange slices- a nod to our annual vacation in Newport Beach. A custom Luke’s Surf Board Rental Company Sign with his birth year hung behind the table.
Gum Balls from SweetWorks
Cool cupcake toppers by Roni’s Sugar Creations matched the invitation perfectly.
A simple buttercream cake from a local bakery was decorated with brown sugar “sand”, a plaid 8 for the birthday boy and the sweetest little crab by Edible Details.
A huge 36 inch balloon with coordinating tassel welcomed the boys to The Crab Shack. The boys treated themselves to lots of fun snack food including sand bars, surf soda, blueberry cups, fish, pearls, sea glass and vanilla cupcake with adorable fondant toppers by Roni’s Sugar Creations.
The complete printable package including invitations, banners, tags, labels and more are available in my Etsy shop.
