Let's Hit the Beach!

 My Hannah loves the beach and always has... I decided to do a beach theme for her graduation party.
 I saw the marshmallow pop idea somewhere on Pinterest and put my good friend Desiree to work on them. hehe. That kept her busy for a while.  I made the centerpiece with a large glass platter, some sand and rocks and then some random shells that I've collected through the years.
 I used the mason jars that Mandy gave me from her wedding. I added the blue/gray burlap and hot glued a shell to it.  They held a small tea light candle and gave off a pretty nice glow.
I put out fish bowls with gold fish crackers in some and shark gummies in the others. Big hit.
 The larger jars were even easier. I took some shells, added a dab of hot glue to the inside and then stuck some twine in the ends.  I found some beach sand and sea glass pellets at Big Lots on clearance. Perfect!
 This was the drink station.  I added some fishing nets, more shells and jars and a chalkboard with a quote that I doodled.  Chalk markers work best on these re-painted projects.
"Salt in the air - Sand in my hair"
 Our friend Rick has a friend that just started her own cookie business called Sweet Treats by Shamaine and he ordered these for Hannah's party.  Not only were these surfboard cookies perfectly decorated, but they were good too.  Nothing worse than biting into a beautiful treat to find that the rest of it tastes horrible.  
 Now I've used some of the decor for my front entry way table "mantle". =) 
Perfect for summer!

I love a good themed party! What will the next one be?? We shall see!
