I am so excited to share this JawSome Valentine’s Day party with you all. I have two boys and they aren’t crazy about all the pink Valentine’s decorations so I try to change up the traditional decorations with things that they like better. A couple of years ago I created this Robot’s Valentine Party and they loved it. This year I decided to go with a shark theme, they are both so into sharks so I knew this was the perfect theme.
Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. Go here for my full policies disclosure. The first thing I created was this shark banner and that set the tone for the party. To make the shark banner I used the Shark Bigz Die designed by Laura Kelly (unfortunately this die is now discontinued). I set up an “adopt a shark” station which was at the center of the table. Since this party was just for my sons I ended up using their own shark stuffed animals. If you are doing a party for other kids besides your own these mini shark plushies look adorable. For cupcakes I just bought some plain ones from my local supermarket. Then to add some matching decorations I placed them inside blue cupcake wrappers and topped them with a shark fin that I just free hand cut out of grey card stock.For an activity that my sons could do during the party I made shark valentine card kits. They were able to each get a card kit and decorate their own card which they will then give to a special person on Valentine’s Day.A simple and great snack that you can serve at a shark party are some Goldfish crackers. I poured some into mini popcorn boxes. If you have a Cricut machine you can make your own popcorn boxes or if you just want to purchase some here is a good option. Last but not least was my backdrop, it was simple but I loved how it turned out. I just taped some heart cutouts onto the wall. That small detail gave the party a Valentine’s Day feel.I hope this JawSome Valentine’s Day party inspires you to think outside the box and create un-traditional parties for Valentine’s Day.
