The perfect beach breeze makes for a perfect day to go fly a kite...which also makes for perfect birthday party ideas from Tiffany Fox, of Fizzy Party!  Tiffany was inspired by the Octopus Kites that are flown at Lincoln City, Oregon- and so the entire party is designed around these colorful and fabulous octopus kites!  Read on for more great ideas on hosting a party matter what kite shape you choose!

I love the gorgeous tablecloth that Fizzy Party chose!  Ocean blue with a little bit of mermaid thrown in!

Fizzy Party kept the food simple- which is always easiest when eating outdoors and when transporting the party to a location away from your home~


I love the gummy octopus candy that Tiffany found- how perfect!

Serve food in covered containers that are customized for the party~

And, customized water bottle labels are always a fun part of a party~ they always add a special touch!

And, don't forget the sunscreen!  Tiffany displayed it in a beach bucket with sand and shells- what a cute way to be sure everyone is ready for a day on the beach!

Tiffany also included Mason Jars with a kite on each jar (look closely to see this cute detail)...

The beach on the Oregon coast is beautiful!  I love the amazing view- what a fabuous place for a party!

Here is a photo of the kites that inspired Fizzy Party's theme...
