Shark tales is a popular animated movie so throwing a Shark Tales theme party for a young fan makes for party bliss. Shark tales takes place in the ocean obviously, so using aquatic theme decorations is necessary. Celebrating a special event with outstanding performances that include singing, dancing and acting is a great way to keep the guests involved in the celebration. These fun activities are perfect for guests of all ages and will add a great deal to the celebration. More often than not, these performances will be the perfect addition to a fun filled and exciting event. Create an underwater environment by using blue cellophane. Use Shark Tales party supplies such as plates, napkins, cups, Mylar balloons, posters, and banners. For music, the Shark Tales Soundtrack is a must. Give the fact the party is being held underwater (not literally) other music choices may include sounds of the ocean as well. Albums to consider to replicate an ocean and seaside environment include:

Echoes of Nature: Ocean Waves by Peter Roberts Media
Sounds of the Earth: Ocean Waves Sounds Of The Earth (Series), Mark Cosmo
Healing Sounds Of Nature: Ocean Waves by Music for Deep Sleep
Sounds & Songs of the Humpback Whale by Gentle Persuasion: The Sounds Of Nature (Special Music Series)
Songs of the Humpback Whale / Sound Effects by Songs Of The Humpback Whale
Reiki Whale Song by Kamal
Sounds of Earth: Dolphins by Sounds Of The Earth (Series)
Song of the Dolphins [Enhanced] by Environmental & Ecological Sou
Aquatic Echoes Creative idea: Matching or contrasting color decor items such as plates and cups will work for any theme ideas. If you specify the type of clothing for a social event like summer causal, give a few examples of what is acceptable and more importantly what isn't. When all is said and done, favors given to those guests who were able to attend will both feel appreciated and be reminded of the day whenever they look at that favor.

Use plenty of homemade Shark Tales party supplies to create a wonderful themed birthday party for that special boy or girl. For a Shark Tale themed party, get plenty of construction paper, blue cellophane, and printouts to begin making the handmade party supplies. Use the blue cellophane to give the effect that the party is taking place under the water. Hand the blue cellophane on the walls and cover the party table with it. Use print out of Shark tales characters and paste where needed. For large pictures of Shark Tales characters, draw them out on large sheets of poster board and paint as necessary. Use a projector to enhance the image and trace. For those who do not have the ability to use a projector, printout small sections of the characters, tape sheets of tracing paper together and place over the printouts. Trace the printouts on to the poster board and the painting can begin once desired images are made.

Most people will find that celebrating a special event with amazing event trimmings, designs and materials is always a great way to add fun to a festive celebration. Enjoyable designs that are perfect for guests of all ages will enhance the event and make the guests feel very special. More often than not, these colorful embellishments will add a lot of attention to the celebration. Homemade Shark Tales banners should also be included in with the rest of the party supplies. A banner is very simple to create and will welcome guests to the party. Use the Shark Tale yellow font and color for the banner (just an idea). Being the party will mostly be blues, use a bright, vibrant color such as yellow to make the banner really stand out from the rest of the homemade party supplies. Compare other ocean banners with own ideas to create an unique banner for the Shark Tales themed party.


Shark Tales is a favorite movie among children, especially little boys, so a cake in that theme would make any Shark Tales party theme a success. This exhilarating festivity is the ideal time for a variety of creative sweets and other tasty treats designed especially for this event. These items are always a great addition to a celebration and most often the addition of enjoyable desserts that are designed especially for this gathering will make everyone feel very extraordinary.

A loaf pan that measures smaller than the cake that is being made would be great to cut out in the shape of a shark. This will be placed on the top of the cake for a three-dimensional effect. Simple coloring of black and light blue will account for most of the shark. The eyes can be white on the black body, with blue irises and black pupils. Then all that is needed to complete it is the teeth that can show whether the mouth is closed or if an open mouth is decided upon. Give it a smile to bring smiles to the party guests.

The rest of the cake can be frosted in blues and greens to make it look like an ocean. And the decorations continue with glittery cake decoration sparkles of different colors to make it look whimsical. Coral and other undersea plants can be achieved by placing thin lines of frosting on the cake with the appropriate attachment to the pastry bag. And deep sea animals might be found as cake toppers to finish it off, as well.

When determining a theme for your child's special day, you should consider a Shark Tales Birthday Party! Most hosts will find that from making a guest list to preparing the food, having a plan will make the celebration go off without a hitch. Simple hostess tip: Prepare for the entire celebration in advance and avoid adding any extra commitments or stress on the hostess during the preparation period. This simple tip will ensure that the hostess has a stress free and very entertaining time during the actual celebration. Shark tales party gear is easy to find and sure to please. Most of the items you need will be easy to locate if you want to purchase them and easy to make if you are feeling crafty.

Invitations are easy to make, if you want to make them yourself! Just copy pictures of sharks onto the front of the invitations, which can be made by folding construction paper in half. Print the words, Swim with the Sharks! on the outside, a photo of the birthday child wearing shark goggles and fins on the inside, along with all the relevant party information.

To decorate the party area, you can create a balloon banner spanning the doorways, paste up tropical fish pictures, and play the Shark Tales theme song in the background. Another fun theme that ties in with this is Under The Sea The best colors to use in the decorations are blue, yellow, and lime green.

For a perfect Shark Tales tablescape, cover the table with a Shark Tales tablecloth and use clam shells and new sand pails and shovels as serving dishes. These can be placed in piles of brown sugar to mimic sand, and tie appropriately colored balloons to the chair backs.

Have Shark Tales coloring pages ready for an easy arrival activity, so the guests will be occupied while everyone arrives. When everyone is present, let each child decorate a T-shirt. A great idea is to have tissue between the front and back to prevent paint bleed, and when the guests are ready, wet sponges with multiple colors of paint and allow guests to dip shells into the paint and press onto their T as decoration.

Bake a fishy cake by using two standard round pans and a cake mix or recipe you like. Cover cardboard with foil and use as a platter. Put one cake round on the platter and cut the remaining layer into fishy fins and a tale, and fit them against the body. Frost blue, and make fins, a mouth, and eyes with decorating gel. The tray can even be frosted with a lighter blue or green frosting to make it appear the shark is in water.

You can cut peanut butter and jelly sandwiches into fish shapes, and serve them to the hungry seafarers for an easy party menu.
