Frozen treats, grilled grub, and splash-tastic activities are just a few of the perks surrounding summer birthday celebrations. Whether you’re hanging poolside, enjoying the waves, or having a backyard bonanza, no alfresco fete would be complete without a fantastic takeaway. From bubbles to beach balls, these unique favors are perfect for your summer baby’s birthday bash.

Chalk it Up
