Shark Themed 4th Birthday Party


My son requested a shark themed 4th birthday party!

Design Inspiration

I used a lot of inspiration from since they had the cutest shark themed items!

Decorating Style

My decorating style for this party was to incorporate all things sharks! hammerhead sharks for the gift bags, shark cookies and cupcakes, and shark photo booth for guests!

Project Details

Items are listed specifically within my blog

Favorite Items

My favorite item....boy that's tough....I loved the cupcakes that spelled out his name and I love how the hammerhead shark  bags came out! Complete DIY and inspired from pinterest


I would say the majority of the items are incredibly easy that I did myself, the gift bags, the photo booth, the banner, decorations. Purchase the items that you can't make or that it's not worth the time to try. I always purchase cookies and cupcakes, the cookies make great favors as people walk out the door. Get them on sticks and in clear bags for ease to take home. I always make my own banner which is incredibly easy once you make a template.
