Birthday Parties

tropical party

I'm 90% sure I want to do a tropical themed party for the baby's 1st birthday. I need inexpensive or easy DIY decoration ideas. And any cute wording you might have. Smile

Thanks!

Re: tropical party

  • I don't. But the dollar store always has tropical stuff in the summer. Umm, I think Dollar Tree
    DS1 - 6/07
    DS2 - 8/08
    DS3- 9/09
    DD1 - 11/11
    DD2 - 10/13
    Baby #6 - Due December 5th.

  • Tropical Hawaiian or tropical Caribbean?
  • A few great ideas is instead of having a cake have cupcakes. Like vanilla, with blue icing, and add thos tiny umbrella to the tops.

    Copy and paste the link the URL bar to see a picture of what I mean.

    You can use little sand pales to hold chips, or ice and cans of soda.

    And here is an adorable idea if you have cookie cutters and a melon!

    You can easily find things like shells and corrdinating napkins at Dollar Tree for very cheap. :) SAnd filled vases with tropicals flowers are pretty nice as well.

    I would watch careful thought if you decorate with small shells or flower laeis. Those can my hazard to the little guy. :)

    Hope those are some good idea. At least inspiration.

  • We have changed gears to a "Luau" type party for this year.

    *I have bought tissue paper from the dollar store to make pompom decorations.

    *Cheap cardstock type paper to make a "Chloe Is Two" banner.

    *I'm making a pinata out of some cardboard that was left over from something and tissue paper.

    *I will make cupcakes that are colored.

    *A limbo stick from an old rake handle that I've painted.

    *A waterballon fight (might not be age appropriate for a 1-yr old).

    *A scavenger hunt for things throughout the park.

    *All my tableware/utensils etc are from Maines and were cheap.

    Don't really care. Probably Caribbean, but not a huge preference. Her name means date palm, so I wanted to decorate with some palm trees. And we're going to Cancun about 2 weeks after, so I figure it'll get my 3 year old excited about the pending trip.

    SO cute. Post photos for me when you're done, please. I think Chloe's party is before Tamar's...

    We are doing a luau for DS's first birthday at the end of August.  The Dollar Store has a ton of luau decorations right now.  I went and grabbed a bunch of leis, cut them apart and made this with leftover cardboard...

    I also bought a party package on Etsy for $35 - this includes the invitation image and a ton of decoration images / templates - banners, signs, hats, pinwheels, food labels, favor tags, cupcake wrappers, thank you notes... a ton of stuff that I can just print and cut out.  I probably won't even use half of it!

    I'm also planning on using other leftover cardboard and making surf boards for behind the food table, which I'll string pictures between. 

    ETA:  Our invitations says "Luca is turning one!  Join us for some luau fun!"

  • I made a very simple and inexpensive wreath for the door out of drink umbrellas.  Google "drink umbrella wreath".  It really looks great!
