My son Alec just celebrated his 5th birthday. He wanted a Yellow Submarine Swim Party.

Your Sub won’t sink around this party. Lot’s of fun new party idea’s, custom details and plenty of yummy treats from the “Galley.”

Custom made yellow gable boxes to resemble a Yellow Submarine with periscope, portholes and all.

They were filled with treats and tied with a custom thank you tag.  The kids were very excited to get one of these.

For information on the gable boxes. See bottom of this blog post.

The aqua stand was made by adhering a plate right side up with a bowl upside down. I used foam stickers to stick the two together so they would be able to be reused in the future. The bowl and plate were purchased at Target.
