Real Party: Surfs Up Summer!

I'm a big fan of unique parties {I'm pretty sure I've used that line as an opener for a blog before... but it's just so true}, which is exactly why I simply adore this uber cute Surf's Up! Summer Party designed by Holly of Paisley Petal Events.  The bright colors, the unique theme, the desserts and all the little details make this party so very swoon-worthy!

Holly designed this party with her 8-year old son in mind.  Living in Utah, they don't have any beaches near them, so Holly was determined to bring the beach to her son and his friends to celebrate the end of the school year.  With the help of her husband, she used four pieces of 8-foot plywood to create the surfboards that served as the background for the dessert table {this is my favorite part of the whole party}.  To continue with the beachy theme, she used a simple white table cloth with blue netting laid on top - too cute!  And the desserts - oh my! - they were too cute!  I'm definitely loving the cupcakes with the fondant surfboards and others with the fondant shark fins, as well as the cookies shaped like sharks and surfboards.

So, now I'll stop my rambling about how awesome this party is and let you see for yourself...
