Swim at your own risktheres no lifeguard on duty at this boys shark-themed birthday party! Kate, at Piece of Cake Parties & Celebrations, planned this celebration for her son, Declans, 5th birthday.

Grab your sunscreen, and keep an eye out for suspicious fins as you surf through the photos by Lightbox Photography.
- This Beach Bash First Birthday is full of beach-themed party ideas!
- Dont get sand in your bathing suit at this Sandcastle Building Birthday Party.
Kate created a cool beach scene with fringed blue crepe paper streamers, beach balls, and seagulls. A shark-themed birthday banner, from Get the Party Started, hangs from a room-sized muslin window shade. Palm trees, fishing nets over burlap table runners, and a grass table skirt add to the sand-under-your-toes feel. Ellenbrook Party Shops fun balloon towers incorporate the theme colorsshades of blue, with bright pops of red. I love the shark mini-stools, but my favorite element is the shark that seems to be emerging from the floor!
At Declans Shark Shack Café, guests helped themselves to a delicious menu: fish and chips in paper cones, and fresh fruit or veggie cups. Upended boxes and a cute little stand, from Lime Tree Kids, are great party food display ideas.
At the guest tables, partygoers donned polka-dotted party hats embellished with felt sharks. Kate playfully mixes stripes and dots throughout the party, here using larger striped plates as chargers under the smaller shark plates. After donning blue leis to complete their beach party look, little partiers were free to visit the dessert table!
At the dessert buffet, a beautiful blue ombre table skirt (Ruffle Me Tablecloths) looks like gentle wavesand makes the shark above seem just a little less menacing! Danger: Shark Zone signs are no jokethere are sharks all over this table! Sharks top individual bottles of Shark Jelly, and shark cake pops, by Cake Pop Creations, look amazing on a sparkly fabric-covered platter. Awesome shark sugar cookies, from Kates Cookies, and several candy choicesincluding blue gummy sharksround out this sweet spread.
Kate created a separate area for the birthday cake and cupcakes. She made the fantastic, grinning shark cake herself, using a kit from Cake to the Rescue. She also served a variety of scrumptious cupcakes from Bellas Cupcake World.
After exciting shark-themed party activitieslike shark diving in a plastic pool filled with blue squishy orbs instead of water, painting Plaster Craft Workshops ceramic sharks, and photo booth posing with a sharkDeclan thanked his guests with favor boxes filled with sunglasses, stickers, tattoos, candy, and an inflatable beach ball.
Just when you thought it was safe to go into the water, this shark-themed boys birthday party proves you dont even need any water for a bodacious beach bash! Creative party planning ideas are all you need to design your own shark celebration.
