A Boy’s Beach Bash First Birthday Party

By  | Last Updated:  

Grab some flip flops and head to the ocean with us for a boy’s beach bash, first birthday party! Planned by the creative team Send in the Clowns, with desserts by the talented Blue Cupcake, an over-the-top soiree was designed with themed ideas that the birthday boy’s family and guests will be talking about for years to come! I can’t decide which element I love most—the souvenir shop dessert and favor table or the sand castle inspired cake!

A tented affair just steps from the beach—this bash had it all.  There were hanging beach balls, balloon columns and even a big balloon “B” for birthday boy Billy.

Blue and white beach balls punctuated the party space to bring in that preppy beach vibe.  Clusters of balloons were creatively hung overhead! Burlap buntings with “beach” and “beach bash” were festively displayed.

The “snack shack” consisted of banquet tables with bowls and chaffing dishes which served up the main menu, while “Billy’s Beach Bungalow and Souvenir Shop” displayed an incredible assortment of treats and party favors.  This display alone makes me wish I were a guest at this party!

I love that much consideration for little guests was given, too.  There were lots of sand shovels for digging, beach umbrellas set up for sun protection, sand tables for playing and containers of cabana striped towels for sand-free seating during a music performance (“Tunes in the Dunes”).

Blow up pools shaped like whales were filled with colored balls for a theme coordinating ball pit.  It appears kids really had a “Whale of a Time” at this activity station!

For those wanting to “make an impression” a craft station was set up to make footprints in the sand.  How clever!
