A Beachy Affair

This past weekend I was hired to decorate a Bat Mitvah at our local Atlantis Aquarium- such a cool place for a party. My girlfriend and our teenage daughters came with me to decorate the space. I wish I had taken more pics but the photographer was taking family pics in the room so I didn't want to get in their way.

Linens were aqua and cream. The host collected all of the decor over the last year. There were oversized hurricanes in 3 different shapes on the adult tables filled with sand, shells, starfish and colorful beach glass.  We included many shells that the family had collected during their summer vacations on Nantucket Island. A little fishnet went on the center of the tables and were topped with more shells and votives.  I used a paint pen on the large clam shells for the table names - which were various island vacation spots - cute idea!

The place cards were printed on colorful card stock and tied to sand dollars which we placed in a large table top sandbox.

Such a beautiful backdrop of built-in fish tanks. The kids' tables surrounded the shark tank. I'm sure they loved that!

Another very cute idea - the mom had a photo book printed and included photos of almost every guest in attendance. Every other page was left blank for signing. Such a nice keepsake for her daughter's special day!

And I just loved the sign - Friends...are like seashells we collect along the way.

So beautiful. Make you feel dine under the sea in Atlantis with beautiful corals, sea shells coral fish, soft white sand and clear blue water. Great job.
