It's a Whale of Party

The last couple of months were cold and gloomy down in my part of the country so when I was approached with the theme of this party I was ready to dive in (no pun intended!) and dream of the warmer months that are coming our way.

My client wanted the theme of whales. This was my first time with this theme but after lots and lots of research I was able to come up with a couple of things. Below are the items she chose:

Centerpieces: These adorable whale centerpieces were made in two sizes (4 inches and 6 inches). I made them out of terra cotta pots (which I painted blue) and then wrapped balloon clusters on top to simulate water coming out of the blow hole.

Party Favors: I found these adorable whale cheese crackers which were placed in cellophane bags. The favor tags were designed to match the invitations she'd chosen for her event.

Invitations: I designed three different invitations for her (which did not include photos at her request.) If you'd like to check out the others check out my etsy store. Link is located below :)

And that’s all folks. I hope you enjoyed looking and got some great ideas for your next event. If you have any questions as to how I made any of these feel free to send me an email at

Stay tuned for my next blog: My son is turning 4 and we're have a...Spiderman Birthday!
