Little Shark Birthday Party Ideas


Travel to the ocean blue with Shindigz’ newest and trendiest little shark theme! Find everything you need to throw an epic baby shark birthday party complete with huge shark standees, tableware, décor and party favors. Your birthday boy or girl should be the star of the show, so personalize as many items as possible – it’s easy and free!

Little Shark Decor

Dive into the deep with underwater décor fit for a baby shark. These shark standees are the cutest décor pieces on this side of the Atlantic. No need to swim away! Little shark cutouts are 4-ft tall and simply adorable with their waving fins and inviting smiles. We love the idea of keeping these baby shark standees in your kiddo’s bedroom long after the party is over! Perfect for play time or fun photo ops, shark standees are affordable and add a unique twist to your baby shark birthday party!

Our favorite element to this fin-tastic party is the epic underwater bubble balloon garland display. It looks complicated, but we promise you can make this eye-catching balloon arch at your little one’s next party.

We used several different-sized balloons to make this look work – 5-inch metallic silver, blue and white balloons; 11-inch silver and blue metallic, navy and white balloons; and giant 3-ft navy and white balloons.

Here’s how we created the look:

1. Start with a reusable wire arch. This is one of our favorite party prop essentials! It’s perfect for fabric backgrounds, unique photo booths and huge balloon garlands. Use it again and again at indoor or outdoor events, plus it’s easy to store. (Seriously, we use it for every party!)

2. To reinforce our wire frame, we anchored it by tying multiple monofilament lines from the arch to the ceiling. There’s no chance for the prop to fall on top of the birthday party!

3. Next, we hung shelving to the wire frame with sturdy rope to help hold our cupcakes and party favors. We love how this gives an underwater, floating effect to the décor, and it doubles as a handy and space-saving dessert/party favor table!

4. Time for balloons! Follow our easy DIY balloon garland tutorial. Once we’ve made a garland about 15 feet long, we began draping it over the wire frame. It’s easy to supplement extra balloons to the garland with a low-heat hot glue gun and tape.

5. For the final touch we added giant 3-ft balloons to balance the garland and close some gaps. We suggest using a hot glue gun and reinforce with tape for these heavy balloons!

Blow up some extra balloons for the kids to play with throughout the party. Kids will love it and you’ll love taking their picture!

Deep Sea Favors

Baby shark birthday party favors are literally the cutest and come with the best shark puns of all time. Give the kids shark-bait gummy worms and Swedish Fish packaged in on-theme party favors bags. Personalize all your little shark favors with the birthday boy or girl’s name and your own fun shark phrase. Treat jars are easy to personalize and handy for each guest to take home after the party is over. Add in shark squirt toys and treasure chests for an inexpensive surprise for each birthday party guest.

It's Chompin' Time - Tableware Fun!

Time to eat? Replace boring paper or plastic tableware with personalized baby shark plates. Add your little shark’s name to the plate online. It’s easy! Simply click "CustomizeIt" and follow the step-by-step instructions. All the birthday party guests will love chompin’ on their cupcakes with on-theme plates, cups, cutlery and tablecovers. Jaw-some!

Sweet Treats Fit for a Big Bite

Don’t leave the party without feeding your sharks a fun birthday treat! We love these chocolate cupcakes with fun frosting. Add the final touch with customizable cupcake picks – it’s easy to personalize and fun to add to each sweet treat. Each kiddo will love to munch on some gummy worms, personalized chocolate bars, lollipops and take a sip of water from customized water bottles. Imagine the fun pictures! Shark-tastic!
