It should come as absolutely no surprise to you that my cute and quirky youngest chose “shark” as his 4th birthday party theme. His entire request was to have a birthday cake with shark toys on it, that he could “clean off and keep forever.” Consider. It. Done. We kept his party super simple, with immediate family and close family friends in attendance. I didn’t get any photos of the backyard setup, but what would a summer birthday party be without water play and bubbles? Here are some of my favorite photos of the day and my favorite Amazon picks for a shark-themed birthday party.
It was a pretty “jawsome” coincidence that his party landed on Shark Week. We had Discovery playing quietly in the background.
We kept party favors simple, with each friend receiving a box of Swedish Fish and bubbles to take with them. Mostly the kids just ran in and out, playing and laughing. Lincoln shared his gifts with the littler kids, and they all played happily together. And what would a shark-themed birthday party be without wearable fins and a plush shark hat?
