Nautical Party


Dive under the waves to enjoy the most magical party on earth!

Does your child seem to take extra-long baths, well past the point of their fingers turning into prunes? When the weekend comes around are they begging to go see the fish and sharks at the aquarium? If you have a future Jacques Cousteau in your house, then you know the only way to celebrate their birthday is by recreating their favorite part of the world. That’s right, you’ll have to take them under the sea. At BirthdayExpress, we have all the essential decorations for you to create this world — and don’t worry, you’ll still be able to light the candles on the cake in this underwater world.   

Quick pre-planning tip:

How do you bring the ocean to your house without all that water damage? Well, short of getting a friendly shark to make an appearance, one of the best things you can do is to rent a bubble machine. Couple this machine with some blue cellophane and you’ll be on your way to an ideal underwater environment.
