Since the boys went with David on their first fishing trip this year it was perfect to do a fishing birthday party. They boys were so thrilled when I asked them about the idea, so I knew we hit the jackpot. I ordered a vintage fishing party set from Spaceships and Laser Beams and started going crazy with all kinds of decorating ideas.
There were lots of balloons at this party.....like almost 400 that we blew up ourselves!! They were supposed to represent bubbles underwater,but I think it ended up just looking festive. Either way, it was fun....and cute :)
When the guests arrived there was a gift table (this table also had the treat boxes on it as well). A fun thing we did was everyone was asked to put their thumbprint on the picture of the fish. They also wrote their name underneath. It made it look like fish scales on the fish. Now we have an awesome keepsake from the party of who all attended.
My friend, Tammy, made me a box full of baby suggestions when the boys were born. I thought it would be fun to try and keep this up by having everyone right a wish they have for the boys. I put it in their box and when they get a little older they will get to read them. All the wishes were really sweet!! Well, except one. Someone thought they would be funny...their wish for the boys "A sister" HA!Good one
The only thing I didn't get pictures of was the grilled cheese sandwiches (they were supposed to be fish shaped, but that too long & too much waste so they were just regular ones). Also I didn't get a pic of the drinks...oops The water bottles were the best. They were special for just their party.
It was such a fun party to plan and the most important part is the boys loved.every.minute. They felt so special and just loved talking about fishing non-stop.
Next up: I'll share pics of the birthday boys with their friends having fun!
