I am excited to finally post some of the details of Jax’s Shark Themed 5th Birthday Party!

We had originally planned to have a Star Wars birthday party but Jaxson decided to change the theme two months before the party date. #whythough. If you know me, you know I plan MONTHS in advance for any party I am throwing, so that change was a huge challenge for me!

I chose the color scheme of white, orange, yellow, light blue and dark blue after falling in love with a Shark themed party put together by the amazing Kara’s Party Ideas. And I couldn’t have loved it more! If you hit a creative road block when trying to throw a party, make sure to check out her site! She is the definition of “goals” for any themed party!

Jax has always had a great love for sharks. Same with myself. They are such amazing creatures. So when he told me he wanted to have a Shark birthday instead of Star Wars, I was super excited! I thought it would be a super fun idea!



This is our AMAZING shark piñata! My dad made it all from scratch and I couldn’t be more in love with it! It has been a tradition of ours (mine and my dad’s) to make a piñata every year since Jaxson’s 1st birthday!


It’s so much fun to make our own and be so proud of the work. I have been traveling a lot for work so I am so grateful to have such an amazing Dad that is willing to help me with everything! I will be sharing a whole piece about this piñata soon!


Best friends. Seriously?! How cute are they?!


I also made a shark photobooth using cardboard, paint, and a red plastic table cover! It turned out so cute! Jax and his friends loved taking photos in it!


PEEP the rainbow coral in the photobooth photo too! My dad made those using spray foam and spray paint! We had them up all over the yard to give it an extra “ocean” theme!

Here are some of my other favorite details from the party:
