This party is right down our alley with it’s “footloose and fancy free” attitude! Sent in by As Sweet As It Gets,this birthday party celebrated a summer of FUN with cute beach-ball cookie pops, “beachy” yellow and blue paper goods from one of our faves - Loralee Lewis, and refreshing drinks for sipping!

“At the party guests were invited to form teams to play board games of their choice, have a drink, and enjoy a slew of sweets that kept on coming all evening long.  The kids, especially, liked creating their own ice cream sundaes!” – Oksana of As Sweet As It Gets
