Submarine party inspiration

If you happen to be looking for a fun party theme submarines might be just it. My current obsession with these little yellow ones is causing me to dream of being submerged under the water happily floating around.

I envision this party for a little boy, complete with a homemade submarine puzzle, a little bit of Beetles in the background and perhaps a deep sea dive into a nearby pool- a handful of boys with their snorkels sticking out of the water would make a lovely picture indeed.

Inspiration for throwing a submarine party-

The goods-

submarine ice cubes-  Freeze with lemonade in them for floating yellow submarine drinks.
Crochet- Adorable favors if you are so inclined, or simply a nice present for the birthday boy.
wall decal- A lovely way to decorate the wall behind the food table.
toy- Set a few of these out amongst the guests to encourage play.
Food- Serving subs is super easy.
Wine- A nod to that band that made the yellow submarine famous.
Invites & banner- My creations just loaded onto etsy, customizable for you.
Favor tags- A free D.I.Y for these will be up later today

Do you see why I am suddenly obsessed with these little guys? They would certainly make a wonderful party.

    I’m planning a submarine party for my 7 year old in January. He insisted on a ‘real’ submarine (not a baby yellow submarine party). He knows the differences between real subs and ‘pretend’ ones. The yellow subs are adorable but I can’t use them so i’m looking for some inspiration and thought perhaps you might have seen something else.

    We live in San Diego and we actually have 2 submarines that are open to the public as museums and my son has seen them and we will be going back with a few friends in tow for his birthday celebration.
