Fall is officially here, but this awesome surf shack party — inspired by Disney's Teen Beach Movie — is a final farewell to the sweet days of Summer. Thrown by Carol Rivera of Once Upon a Party, the birthday bash has some simply incredible elements, including a cool surf-inspired cake, surfboard cookies, shark fin cupcakes, and even a vintage VW surf van!
"Teen Beach Movie was filmed on our island of Puerto Rico, and my nephew Sebastian loves the movie so much," Carol says. "We used all the elements that were important on the movie: surf boards, beach balls, big waves, sunglasses for each guest, and assorted candy in tin pails. Although there were no sharks in the movie, Sebastian wanted to use sharks as a surprise element." While your next trip to the beach might seem far away, this party will remind you one more time why we all love Summer (minus the sharks) so much! Hang 10!
