Kona's Water Party

With Kona's 4th birthday party this weekend, I figured I should share his 3rd birthday party! It's been almost a year, but like they say it's, better late than never. :) Since his birthday is in the summer I knew I wanted to have a big water party in our backyard. We had the best time, and I'm not sure who had more fun on the slip 'n slide, the adults or kids! Even the Grandparents got in on the action!
I got the invitations from this Etsy shop and loved them. The shop owner was great to work with and they were exactly what I wanted!

I kept the decorations pretty simple with blue table cloths, lei garland on the table's and hanging up around our patio, summertime decorations above the food table, pineapple salt and pepper shakers,  and umbrella and pineapple straws.
I had so much fun planning out water themed food. We had watermelon as "shark teeth", white "shells" and cheese, "fish and chips" with pineapple salsa, a veggie tray to "to take a dip", "seaweed" that was spinach dip, starfish and shark gummy candy, and "sand" pudding cups with bears floating in inner tubes.   

The cake was my favorite and I love how it turned out! I dyed the frosting blue for water, put teddy grahams in peachie o's for the inner tubes, added some goldfish and crushed graham crackers for sand.

For water fun we had a slip 'n slide, water balloons, squirt guns and the sprinkler going.

It was such a fun day celebrating our sweet boy and acting like a kid again!
