{Real Parties} Toni's Twins' Surf Birthday Party!

I am so excited to share this party with you today! My assistant, Toni went ALL out for her twins' 13th birthday party this year! I can't tell you how proud I am of her party planning skills! I recently designed this new surf collection for another fabulous customer with twins, and it was perfect for this twin party, too! I am so impressed with all of the details of this party! Absolutely amazing job, Toni! The gorgeous photos by Kathy Scoffield capture everything beautifully!

Hi all! It's Toni here with all of the details......


Backyard Decor:
I was lucky enough that I had a dear friend who owns all of these tables, chairs and linens that happened to match perfectly with the colors of the party! She also let me borrow the adorable monkeys that I used as centerpieces. I was also able to get some great deals on luau decor from several stores as they were clearing out all of their Summer items! Lucky me! These beautiful lanterns were courtesy of Polka Dot Market! They were perfect!







Cool idea:
We rented a Slushie Machine, and gave the kids each two "drink tickets" that were in their cups waiting for them on the tables!

The Food:
Corndogs, fresh fruit kabobs and individual size snack bags were easy and perfect for the kids! The snack bags contained Beach Bunny Bites (caramel popcorn), Bahama Mama Mix (Munchies Snack Mix) and The Big Cheese Daddy (cheese puffs)! All topped with custom labels from The TomKat Studio, of course! The cute scalloped bags are from Walmart and it was perfect that the kids could just pick out their favorite snack. I got this idea from here. (We had a lot of grown-ups here as well, so we had "grown up" food inside the house!)





Yummy Cupcakes:
What else could I possible serve other than cupcakes?! Courtney & I spent all week baking 5 different varieties...two of which were actually from scratch, thanks to Bakerella and Barefoot Contessa! Courtney and my friend, Wendy spent time together frosting all of these babies on Saturday afternoon! I think Courtney has a real knack for baking! The cupcakes were adorned with TomKat Studio Party Circles and drink umbrellas. So cute!



Fabulous Favors:
Oh...the cookies! They were simply beautiful! Beach balls, beach umbrellas, flip flops and sunglasses! All in bright colors to match the party! The guests - adults and kids alike - could not stop talking about how adorable they were. A big thank you to The Cookie Jar for your creativity! Of course, they were wrapped with a bow and a TomKat Studio favor tag!





My two beautiful children who came into this world 13 years ago.
Happy Birthday Courtney & Connor!

Toni, you did an exceptional job on this party! I know your children are the most important thing in the world to you and I am sure they enjoyed every minute! Absolutely beautiful job! XOXO, Kim

    So cute! Where did those solid colored boxes come from? Was it a Tomkat printable?

    @Simply Creative Insanity - I got those at Walmart! They are actually favor type bags. Found in the party supply section. Gotta love Walmart. :) 8 for $1.50.

    Debbie...I was lucky enough to have a friend who owned the tables & chairs. But in the past, I've rented from Arizona Tent, which is now owned by Pro-Em. Located in Phoenix. ~Toni
