An Under the Sea party is a pool party theme that fits boys or girls or a mixed group.
Pool Party Themes for Boys or Girls
Pool party themes help give direction to your invitations, decorations, food, games and party bags. The decorations and games can be adjusted so that they appeal to all different ages.
My granddaughters loved helping me make these fish party decorations made out of paper plates. We painted them blue, cut out the mouths, stapled two plates together, and then stapled in deep blue and aqua blue tissue paper that were cut into strips.
Place the fish in lots of different places. We hung these "tropical fish" from the patio umbrella that is also decorated with aqua blue shimmery netting. These tropical fish were put on blue painted dowels and set on either side of the pool gate welcoming the pool party guests as well.

Under the Sea Decorations
Have fun with your kids making these Under the Sea decorations. Our granddaughters loved painting the plates.
Involve your kids in the planning and decorating. My granddaughters came up with some of the greatest ideas for our Under the Sea party.
These deep sea party bags were made with blue lunch bags that I found at Target.
Trim the top of the bag with a decorative scissor and stick some ocean themed foam stickers on the front.
It's easy to find inexpensive favors in the beginning of the summer but by mid-July most of them are gone. I bought the last 5 of these mermaids at the Dollar store for the girls party bags and found some fun, tropical pool fish for the boys.
Fish straws and Little Mermaid and fish stickers completed the bags.
You don't have to be a cook extraordinaire to make these fun cupcakes. Bright green cupcake wrappers trimmed with decorative scissors provide lots of color while the cute puffy fish bring an element of fun.
The kids love cupcakes topped with toys that they can actually take home and play with. For more pictures and ideas go to
