Octonaut Party !!!!

Hi Everyone !!! YES this post is picture Heavy !
I wanted to show you the party I threw for my daughters 5th birthday last weekend !!!
For those of you who don't know this cartoon is called Octonauts its a cartoon based out of the United Kingdom. Not knowing this I agreed to this party theme and quickly realized I couldn't get any party d├ęcor for this theme.
I had to special order the plates, napkins, cups and tablecloths from the U.K and I made all the other decorations.
You can get these Octonauts characters from SVG Cutting files for 1 month free when you join in this months challenge... which is Birthday themed !!!
My daughters favorite is Oreos, so I had Cupcake Magic  put oreos in the bottom of these cupcake and top them with Oreo crumble.
I made the toppers from a simple circle and scallop cut out, then did a print and cut on the Cameo with these characters and pop dotted them ! Adding twine
Then bought these cups from Hobby Lobby and set the cupcakes inside them

The banner I made using the SVG Cutting files NEW file called Build a Banner.
I handmade rosettes' to make the letters pop! Again using the characters on the bottom of the banner pieces.

I used paper from Simple Stories and Paper Trey

Here is the invite each guest received
I made a Octonaut hat and inside used the print and cut feature on the Cameo to create the words and Cpt. Barnacles.
(I have deleted the personal info on the invite itself)

I used white plates for the food then the Octonaut plates for dessert.
I created name cards for all the food (my kids had to help teach me what each character does so I could put it with the right food)
To make the place cards I used the Jaded Blossom Fancy Topper die !!!

For the veggie dish I put ranch in the middle and made a Octopus from a bell pepper

Also served yummy pasta salad.... my easy recipe of noodles, salami, mozzarella cheese, olives and Italian dressing.

These "sand dollars" I made wheat and white pinwheels with lettuce, cheese, cream cheese, ham and turkey
These cute starfish dishes were bought at Party City

Since pizza is my daughters Favorite I served pizza !!!

I tried to make jellyfish...LOL
I bought these lanterns at Hobby Lobby and added tissue paper, ribbon and wax paper

On each of the tables I put a small fish bowl with gold fish
(fish bowl bought at the dollar tree wooden scoop from Jaded Blossom)

I made blue jello and put a Swedish fish candy in each one !!

A fish bar !!!
To eat with lunch and then I also provided gusset bags from Jaded Blossom
so each guest to take some home!!
Bowls are from Marshalls and Party City and the scoops from Party City

For the treat table I bought buckets from Michaels and used vinyl to put the Octo alert symbol with each childs name on them, and filled them with goodies !!

 My daughter helped me make these bottle cap necklaces with each charater for each child to take home as well

Also for the kids and adults I made chocolate coin bags.
I used the Fancy Topper die and 3x4 bags from Jaded Blossom
and the chocolate coins are from Party City
There are 5 coins because the birthday girl is 5 !!!

For refreshments I made punch simply by using Hawaiian Blue punch and mixing it with sprite.
I also made water bottle wraps
I took off a label measured it and made the same size in the Silhouette program.
I added the Octonaut symbol and some seaweed with bubbles, I used the print and cut feature to create these as well

For dessert using the same cups as the cupcakes I put Oreo ice cream in them topped off with a double stuff Oreo !!

Poppy was so happy that I made her birthday special !!!

I love my little girls sooooo much and if that means spending months hand making all this stuff for a afternoon of joy, then that's what I will do !!!
Thank you so much for stopping by and remember to join in the challenge if you want the files for these characters ♥ at SVG Cutting Files
