Real Parties: California Dreamin'

Do you remember the California Dreamin' and Texas Hoedown party I was telling you about? Well, here are the pictures from the California style party that took place in Texas!
Party hats were displayed on a surfboard table that Sarah's husband constructed. I love this!


Beach bucket and pinwheel centerpieces...too cute and perfect for a kids party!

Beach towels were used as tablecloths.

Lanterns and pom poms seem to be the rage, but I love how she hung beach balls instead!






Aren't these cupcakes adorable?! Crushed graham crackers were used to make the "sand" topping.

The kids took home beach buckets that were filled with a flip flop sucker, beach ball, bubbles, sunglasses, noise maker and a squirt gun.

Everyone took home a beach themed cookie too!

Here is a look at the invitation again. I will share the Western pictures with you soon!

A few party details you might be interested in:

* Sarah, the hostess, made the pinwheels and hats!
* The favor, bubble and cookie tags came from who else, but The TomKat Studio.
* Invitation and water bottle labels were designed by Hayley Hardcastle.
* The cake came from Hot Chocolates in Hurst, Texas and a family member designed the fondant pieces.

Stay tuned for pictures from the Hoedown that took place in California!
