Pink Crabby Birthday

What better way to kick off summer than this Pink Crabby birthday party by Jessica of Party Box Design.  Full of outdoor fun, a crab boil, and a pink crab motif everywhere, this is a great lesson in how to personalize a theme.  Read on for all the details told by Jess…
“My daughter Charli loves crabs, we are from MD… and I must admit, I heart prep! What other possible theme could there be then, a… Preppy Pink Crab Party?!? Plus I really think Shades of Pink, Powder Blue and Navy look so well together. I had to throw in the polka dots, because what is prep without polkas?!?
My husband made the amazing Crabby Bar and Beach sign, which is prob my most favorite part… aside from the actual bar, which was a labor of love. The crabby bar was originally purchased from a second hand shop- amazing find!
We of course had to have steamed crabs and Crabby Ale at the party, which the guests loved. If you are from MD, then you know Summer means crab feasts- it’s one of the best things about this state.”
“For the favors the kids took home crabby cupcake push pops and crabby cookies. The adults were given a jar of crabby spice.
Overall, this was our favorite party yet, with so many amazing vendors and a fantastic photographer. This party really felt like “us”, more then just a theme but rather a great party that celebrated all the things we love.”
