{Tommy's Birthday Party} Are you Crabby today?

My little boy is turning FIVE next week!
Inspired by his favorite Pottery Barn Kids towel from a couple years ago, we decided on a red, white & navy "Crabby Crab" nautical theme! I'll be posting more ideas on this theme on my Facebook page, as I search for fun red, white & blue recipes and ideas!
Come visit and share your ideas!

We did a very similar color theme - red, green and white for a little chefs Pizza Party for Niko's 5th birthday.

Cute! I got my son similar lobster shorts last year that were adorable! Have fun at the party! How about a game "diving for crabs" (or other underwater things?)

Cute, cute Kim! I always think boy parties must be so hard compared to girls, but you do a great job of course! Can't wait to see it!

since our last name is crabtree, we have an soft spot for crabs! I can't wait to see what you come up with-I know it will be adorable!

PS What happened to Mario? :)

Kimmi - I was just at SAS yesterday and picked up loads of trim for 25 cents a yard. They had lots of cute red, white and blue stuff just in case you're interested.

Heidi said...

How cute! I can't wait to see the final results.

thanks for posting where you found paper lanterns. I had no idea party city sold them for so cheap. Your party theme ideas are always so creative.

Hey Kim,

You have to check out this site for the party! The name is even called Tommy wants... and they make crab inspired polos and accessories. In case don't have the perfect outfit already picked out, doubtful. But totally thought of you party when i ran across this.
