One of the most anticipated weeks of the summer is finally here: Shark Week! For this year’s shark-a-thon, we’re planning a seafood feeding frenzy. We’ve put together one fishy menu guaranteed to help you host the perfect Shark Week party. Shall we dive in?

Shark Bites: 

Blue Margarita: We suggest serving these ocean-colored cocktails in fish bowl glasses and garnishing them with shark gummies.

For a kid-friendly drink, tint lemon lime soda (or other clear drink) with a drop or two of blue food dye. Don’t forget the shark gummies!

We're sure your shark-obsessed guests will enjoy taking a bite out of these dishes, but don’t be afraid to get creative and bring your own personal flair to the party. You can use a cookie cutter to create shark-shaped gelatin desserts, cookies, or finger sandwiches. For fishy décor, use blue tablecloths scattered with cheesy baked fish crackers. Carve a watermelon in the shape of a shark and cover it with gummy fish for an intimidating centerpiece and a fruity snack. The ideas are endless!

For more fin-spiration, check out these amazing shark cookies created from scratch by our friend JK Denim from Koalipops. These could be the perfect addition to your party!

Now you’re ready to host a jaw-dropping viewing party. Grab a plate of sharky snacks and get comfortable—but make sure you have one hand free to shield your eyes!

We’d love to see how your party turns out. Be sure to your share photos with us by tagging us on Twitter or Instagram! Happy Shark Week!
