A Preppy Pink Crab Party!

My daughter Charli loves crabs, she is from MD... and I must admit, I heart prep! What other possible theme could there be then, a...
Preppy Pink Crab Party!
If you are from Maryland, or have lived here... or even visited, you know you just can't have crabs without some Crabby Ale from The Crabby Bar!

A Crabby Place where you can find only the best water in all of Maryland!

oooo and some yummy cocktails as well...

You may want to sit back, relax, listen to the ocean waves(which were playing on the porch) and enjoy some some sweet treats!
smell the roses

or head over to the bouncy bounce to play with your kiddos!

Pure JOY
Total LOVE
What parties are all about!

"Charlotte, if you wear the most gorgeous hat ever... you can have some crabby cupcakes to go"

After all the fun had been had, the kiddos and adults couldn't leave without some crabby party favors!

and the most amazing crabby cookies EVER...
AND some Crabby Spice!

Overall, this was our favorite party yet. So many amazing vendors and a fantastic photographer. This party really felt like "us", more then just a theme but rather a great party that celebrated all the things we love.

A huge thanks to Destinee from Cellar Door Photography for all the amazing photos! She was pure joy to work with and I just adore her!  She also has a facebook page, so be sure to check her out! If you are local to MD and need a photographer, she is your lady! Thanks Destinee, you were just so wonderful!
