4th Birthday Party | Octonauts Theme

Our soon to be 4 year old has become increasingly obsessed with all things Octonauts and obscure sea creatures. I asked him what kind of birthday party he wanted, and he blurted out something along the lines of Octonauts, a whale shark and symbiosis. I knew things were going to get pretty weird. Since there isn’t any Octonauts party supplies here in the US, I decided to try and recreate everything in Illustrator. I wanted to keep with the bright color scheme from the show, which is different shades of aqua, green, and orange. I thought fondant cake toppers would be cool, but I had no idea what I was doing so I thought I could just fake it using polymer clay from Micheal’s. After a few failed attempts, they started to look like the characters and it’s cool because now he gets to keep them. I was able to incorporate a little “symbiosis” into the party with the urchin & crab on a stick for the photobooth, as well as some other sea creatures and a sweet shark face. The kids seem to love the pool filled with sea creatures and the treasure hunt, and luckily no one got hurt on the plank walk or choking on non edible clay cake toppers. He had a blast, and I was so happy he recovered in time for his birthday party. He unfortunately had a pretty severe allergic reaction to Motrin 2 days prior and almost took a trip to the ER, so it was a busy weekend.

Thank you Hostess with the Mostess for featuring his party!
