DIY: Surf and Swim Themed Birthday Party

Playful Life with Kids DIY: Surf and Swim Themed Birthday Party 5

It’s already less than a month before my son’s first birthday and I’m so excited to share with all of you our Surf and Swim themed birthday party. We chose this theme because our little boy loves water. By love I mean he loves taking a bath and enjoys his time in the swimming pool every time we bring him to a resort or beach.

Here are some easy DIY surf and swim themed birthday party ideas:

1. Cupcake Toppers: I found surfing gift wrappers in Robinson’s place, Ermita department store. I could not find a surf-themed cupcake topper so I made one instead. It’s perfect for our surf and swim themed birthday party for him!

Materials:
Gift wrapper
toothpick
double sided tape
Procedure:
1. Cut gift wrappers. Paste on cardboard.
2. Place double-sided tape and toothpick on the bottom of the topper.
3. Cover the toothpick with the double sided tape to seal it.
1. Cupcake Toppers: I found surfing gift wrappers in Robinson's place, Ermita department store and thought of using it as a cupcake topper as I could not find any surf themed cupcake toppers.

2. Surfing Coloring Book. I made my own coloring book by downloading a coloring book template of surfing, and beach themes. I used powerpoint to print the coloring book and photocopy it back to back. Very easy and not-so-techie right?:) You can visit these sites for coloring book templates: www.twistynoodle.com.

3. Cake Toppers. I found different inspirations for a cake topper. Then I asked my high school friend to make me one, and here it is:

4. Swimming/Surfing Pictorial. We also did our own pictorial from concepts, styling and all props. We did the pictorial in Tivoli Residences where my high school friend lives and asked my photographer friend to do the shoot. I have great friends, right?:) So sharing some of the pics here:
