Beach Picnic Party

Summer is here!

We celebrated the end of the school year with a beach picnic party! The picnic food included starfish-shaped sandwiches, goldfish crackers, cool lemonade and jello "beach" cups. I used printables from Bird's Party to add a nautical element. Beach pails filled with beach balls, sand toys and sunglasses served as both centerpieces and party favors.

How to make Jello "beach" cups....

These Jello "beach" cups were a hit with the children--and they are super easy to make! 
Just make the blue Jello per the packet directions and pour into plastic stemware. When the Jello is about halfway set, insert gummy sea creatures into the cups. Right before serving, top with graham cracker "sand" (just run some graham crackers through a blender until they reach a sand-like consistency) and a cocktail umbrella. 

Have a great summer!

  1. This looks so incredibly fun!

    I have young siblings who would totally this party - especially as the sun's been so scarce here in the UK so far, even though it's now June...

    Nothing like an indoor beach party to raise spirits :)
