{Party} Nautical Lobster Party

Patton's Birthday Party

my little man is FOUR! what?! how did this happen? i swear i was just swaddling him… when did he turn into this little guy with personality and opinions? its NO secret that he has an obsession with lobsters and crabs. need evidence? here, here, and here. people will probably look at this party and think ‘what 4 year old wants a nautical party with lobsters? she probably picked that theme herself.’… not so my friends. patton had this theme picked out for months! he was having a lobster party and would tell anyone and everyone about it. it would have lobsters and boats and ‘crabbys’. so that is JUST what we did. and he LOVED IT!!!

i knew the first step would be getting a printable design together since that would be the basis of the whole party – and there is not a huge selection of lobster designs out there! i begged lindi of love the day to design it for him when we were paling around at SNAP this year and i knew she would come up with an amazing collection. once i started looking around online for lobster, crab, and nautical gear i found that the best source was Oriental Trading and reached out to them about working together – they are such a wonderful company and had a huge selection! check the list at the end of the post for specific items, but most of the party gear came from there. i also have the BEST local blogger friends – stefani of la belle party planning and everyday party magazine let me borrow several props including the chalkboard and backdrop and the awesome lobster trap table!

this party would not be amazing without the incredible dessert and party vendors – i pretty much can’t host a party without fondant toppers from lynlee’s petite cakes, cake from traylor made treats, and cookies from auntie bea’s bakery! add in custom lollipops from lollipics, candy kabobs from sweets indeed, jelly beans from jelly belly, and party supplies from the tomkat studio – and its a recipe for an amazing lobster party!

oh and did i mention that i took just a few pictures?
