The Cupcake idea is from Martha Stewart's Cupcake Book
The Menu:

Shark Bait (goldfish with Swedish Fish Candy)
"The One that Got Away" (Main Dish/Salmon)
Feeding Frenzy Potatoes (roasted Potatoes)
"Don't Swim Alone Salad"
Shark Fin Cupcakes
Shark Watermelon
Shark Teeth and Seaweed Dip (Shark teeth=chips!)
Tutorial on making Shark Watermelon to follow!!!!
How cool is this? Sabrina made this with construction paper!
Yes, my husband always comes through with the best ideas!
We surprised him with the party and he ran in his closet and came up with this idea instantly! 
I wish I would of thought of this idea....Good job Mike!
This is my favorite part of the party...the one and only.... "Bloody Water Drink"
Start with a glass of Sprite, a plastic shark (found these in the dollar spot at Target),
I took the squeaky part out and filled the shark with red cherry juice

pour in the "blood"

Sabrina will demonstrate the drink...

after dinner we did a Reef Puzzle...a great night together!

I love how you have "family parties" regularly with full themes! This must be wonderful family time! It must really pull you out of feeling like your days are boring and always the same. Great ideas!
