Partying at the Cape

This past weekend I threw a Cape Cod themed party for my husband’s 30th. And not to brag, but it turned out pretty great!

(Ok, maybe I’ll brag a little).


I ordered food so that I could focus all my energy on the best part of hosting- the decorations!

I loved all the ideas I got from other blogs so wanted to write about how I put that inspiration into action.


The table looked better with food on it but I forgot to take another picture!


My main inspiration was Hostess with the Mostess’ Color Your Summer party. I love that for free you can download their placecards & these great signs.


The signs really brought the food and drink areas together, making it just a little fancier!



I ordered this from Nautical Seasons, along with some nets and buoys.


I hit up Target for beach pails (to put Cape Cod potato chips in), pinwheels, and beach balls.


For party favors I ordered these lobster lollipops from Ju-C Suckers, which  were fantastic. I want to order from them all the time now! Not only do they have great customer service but they customized the back label for free.


You pick the shape and the flavor. And they looked great in a little pail so I got decorations and favors all in one!


After the party started I stopped taking photos of my handiwork, but needless to say the party was a hit! And I’m kind of glad the planning is finally over!


Any other good blogs/websites to check out for my next party?
