the bite of the party

Ever present in our culture - peer pressure.

Even for adults.

The pressure is unbearable at times.  

So after having my daughter go to a variety of extravagant birthday parties and planning her very simple birthday party, I caved in a little bit and looked on Pinterest to see what I could see.

Oh, there were a ton of ideas for our beach party theme, but I decided to keep it simple.  I used an idea that didn't come from Pinterest - a sand pail and shovel for the "goodie bag" - and I attempted one creative food idea:
A watermelon shark!

It really was kind of fun to do and the girls loved it.

Those parties can get over the top! And while it's important to make the birthday child feel special, it's equally important to give the guests a good time and think of them. Sounds like you achieved that balance nicely. :) Way to go on your watermelon shark, I love it!
