It’s a bad week to be a seal, but a great week to have a party! If you’re a Shark Week fan and want to infect your family and friends with some shark love, try having a shark-themed tv marathon or even a Beach Theme Party. You won’t have to do much to keep your guests entertained besides turning on the tv and providing them with delicious and laughable snacks. Try some of these cute favorites to get everyone in the mood for a shark attack!
1. Shark Attack Fruit Salad: Go all out by making this terrifying fruit salad made courtesy of Spoonful. Your guests will love the creativity of this easy project, and it will make a great centerpiece for your buffet table.
2. Shark Bait: An easy favorite, Pepperidge Farm goldfish are cheap and can be placed on coffee tables in small bowls where guests can easily grab a handful. Labeling your bowls “Shark Bait” encourages guests to connect with their inner shark.
3. Shark Sandwiches: These tuna sandwiches courtesy of Kidlark are cut using a shark or fish shaped cookie cutter. If you want to serve your guests a more substantial meal, try offering turkey and ham as well on a large platter.
4. Shark Fin Salsa: Fill small plastic cups with salsa and place a tortilla chip in each, standing the chip up like a shark fin. This shark, however, will be prey to your guests who won’t be able to keep away. Make sure to put out extra bowls of chips so guests can continue to munch down.
5. Shark Jello: In small, clear plastic cups, make portions of blue jello. After the jello has set, add a spoonful of Cool Whip and a couple of fish or shark gummies (can be found at most grocery stores).
6. Save Me! Donuts: Buy a package of mini white powdered donuts, setting them out on trays on the buffet or coffee tables. Create labels that say “Save Me!”, making your guests think of the life preservers that may one day save them from a shark attack.
7. Shark Themed Favors: Purchase a large bag of red Swedish Fish (shark bait!) and divvy them up between small cellophane bags. Label each bag with one of the following phrases:
- Fish are friends, not food. Thanks!
- Thanks for making a splash!
- It’s a good week to be a shark! Thanks for coming!
