Surfer Dude Birthday Party


My son had a super rad SURFER 7th birthday party! He picked blue and orange with a pop of green as his color scheme and I went for a very beachy overall feel . Best part is that this party was done on a REAL budget and I think we ot our bang for our buck! Photos were taken by Maggie Russo Photo ~ Chicago

Design Inspiration

My son wanted a surf party in his favorite colors and we went from there!

Decorating Style

Vintage is my favorite. I like to mix old and new and I like to repurpose items for different uses whenever I can!

Project Details

For this project I shopped the dollar section of Target and the Dollar store mostly. The cupcakes are on surfboard shaped cork boards from Target for $2.50 ea and the shelf of favors all came from dollar tree.

I used the lanterns on the table in more of a beach ball fashion rather than hanging them.

I custom designed printables so that everything tied together and the party theme was carried throughout.


Favorite Items

My favorite is the amazing cake and cookies that my sisier made. I also thought the shark fin ice in the punch was fun too!


Start shopping well in advance. Try to stick to a color scheme and use found objects in unexpected ways.
