Shark Week Party!

It's that time of year again...you know, the most wonderful time of the year. Shark Week! I don't know about you, but I look forward to this week every summer!

A theater near me shows Jaws every year to celebrate Shark Week, and usually, Craig and I go and celebrate this momentous week with the masses. Unfortunately, work schedules didn't align this year, and we can't attend. So we decided to throw our own mini-Shark Week party this weekend! I think next year, we'll try to do a big one at my apartment. Here are some of the neat ideas I found while clicking around the internet...so you can celebrate with your chums, too!

First, you have to look the part! Check out these sweet shark threads for inspiration (I actually own the tank top, and it is probably my favorite purchase of the summer...I might just have to get the earrings, too)

Sushi would be the obvious choice in this case (it's a little tastier than chum, but the concept is pretty much the same). But if you've got a sweet tooth, Martha Stewart suggests a simple blue frosting/construction paper triangle cupcake decorating scheme for a shark-tastic party. You could also get some help from a novelty cupcake kit. If you're culinarily challenged, your good friends at Georgetown Cupcake can help you out.

Just sayin, no shark party would be complete without frickin sharks with frickin laser beams attached to their heads. No, really.

And if the Discovery Channel specials aren't enough for you, allow me to humbly suggest some of my favorite shark movies: Jaws, Sharknado, and Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus.

Enjoy your Shark Week, everyone! And remember...live every week like it's Shark Week.
