Octonauts Party by GreyGrey Designs


Barnacles the bear, Kwazii the cat, and Peso the penguin are always up for an adventure. Likewise, we’re always up for a party! We were lucky enough to have Brittany Schwaigert from GreyGrey Designs feature us on her blog once again and style this Octonauts birthday theme for us. Keep on scrolling here to see her work her magic!


With the Octonauts party in a box, you can easily get all the party supplies you need to give your child the perfect day. These plates, napkins, cups, and decorations feature a bright blue color scheme with touches of orange, complete with imagery taken right from the cartoon. Brittany took this as a starting point and ran – there’s no limit to the amount of imagination that can be infused into a party theme!


We love this amazing fabric garland from Lilly Paul Designs that Brittany placed around the edge of her table. The aqua blue and orange colors match the Octonauts theme perfectly! With some pieces of fabric in varying patterns, you could DIY your own, too. Round clear Christmas ornaments were used to look like bubbles.


Cake pops from Sweet Whimsy were guaranteed to be a hit at the party. Good call, Brittany! They look just like their adorable character counterparts, and they taste phenomenal.


(Deliciousness confirmed.)


Display your sweets in a fun a creative way! Suckers and other candy with sticks can be stuck into blocks of floral foam and dressed up with shredded tissue paper or cotton batting. To get the look, Brittany used some orange whirly pops combined with Octonauts stickers as well as a few sea life candy skewers from Sweets Indeed.


Wooden crates like this one make great ways to display party favors and treat bags – find them at your local craft store. Brittany filled this one with a batch of customized cotton candy favors from Soiree Event Design, but you can use whatever your Octonauts of the hour prefer.


You can get Octonauts party favor boxes pre-filled, too. Each one contains a sheet of Octonauts stickers, an eyepatch (just like Kwazii’s!), a water wiggler, and other undersea-themed fun. They’re the perfect way to send the guests home happy!
