Shark Week is fast approaching, and this year is a big one. Sunday marks the 30th Anniversary of Shark Week! That means you have full permission to go crazy with the shark decorations. Or, if you already go crazy because you live every week like it's Shark Week, go ahead and go even bigger.
One of the many great things about Shark Week is that it happens in the summer, meaning nice weather that allows you to enjoy the event outside. And, for those of you with a pool or spa, you can cool off in the water just like the sharks.
So what are we waiting for? Let's get your backyard ready for Shark Week!
First things first.. you need a way to watch the action. You'll need to set up a TV or a projector to allow for optimum viewing opportunities. I'm not going to discriminate against screen sizes and say that yours needs to be huge or there's no point, but make sure it's a good size for everyone to see what's happening. You know what they say, though, bigger is better when you have hungry sharks swimming right at you!
If you'll be cooking up delicious food, consider setting up some fun table decorations. You can go all out with sharks everywhere, or you can stick to more of a general ocean/beach theme with sharks scattered throughout the setup.
Last, but not least, the pool or spa. We can't forget about those! Spice up the water with inflatable sharks - big or small. In a pool, two or three will probably be plenty depending on the size of the sharks and the pool. If you're hanging out in a spa, you'll probably want something a tad smaller. There are plenty of inflatable sharks and other ocean wildlife of all shapes and sizes available out there.
You could also have these shark squirts ready for a little surprise fun at your party!
No matter how you choose to decorate your backyard, you can't go wrong. Take this opportunity to make your Shark Week viewing party your own and have fun with it! Enjoy your time spent with family and friends celebrating the amazing creatures that sharks are.
