under the sea party ♥

I love summer and here are some cute ideas from my  step Aunt European Cutie! /  she helped me with,  for a summer under the sea beach party! ♥

first lets start off with the party food!

how cute are these crabby sandwiches!
  • 1 croissant
  • Sandwich filling*
  • 6 baby carrots
  • 2 toothpicks
  • 1 black olive
  • 2 cream cheese balls (1/2-inch)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 radish

  • Helpful Tip:* We used ham and cheese in our sandwiches, but crab, chicken or tuna salad, and PB&J also make delicious fillers.

    How to make it

    1. Slit open the outside edge of a croissant, as shown, and stuff it with sandwich filling.*
    2. Tuck six baby carrots into the sides to form legs.
    3. Slide two 1/2-inch balls of cream cheese onto toothpicks, top each with a black olive slice, and stick them in place as shown.
    4. Snip off the tips of the croissant and slide a red bell pepper claw into each end.
    5. Finish the crab by attaching a radish slice smile with a dab of cream cheese.
    and for snacks you can't forget the goldfish crackers!

    and for drinks we had blue lemonade, the color of the sea!

    it's sugar free berry blue kool aid!

    and for dessert so cute! little clam cookies!

    What you'll need

    • Pink frosting
    • Small, round wafer cookies
    • Yogurt-covered raisins or peanuts
    • White frosting
    • Black food coloring

    How to make it

    1. To make each oyster, spread a layer of pink frosting on the bottom of a small, round wafer cookie, then gently press a yogurt-covered raisin or peanut on top. Position another cookie as shown, anchoring one edge in the frosting.
    2. Dab on white frosting eyes, then use a toothpick dipped in black food coloring to add pupils.

    now for the crafty part, cute diy flip flops here's how to make them!

    we got these at Jo Ann fabrics  and picked out everything I would need to create a basket of flip flops! Use a glue gun and add the embellishments super easy and super cute!

    I hope you enjoyed my under the sea party!

    xoxo, Love Lucia ♥
