Due to some unexpected plumbing problems at our house on the scheduled weekend, we quickly relocated the party to a family friend's home.
These are all easy details that can be done anywhere and are easy to pack up at a minute's notice (like we did!).
Clear helium balloons from the party store and orange and turquoise streamers solidified the fishy theme.
I made these simple take home favors from turquoise colored bubbles that I found in the wedding section at Michael's. I adorned each with a fishy tag. I punched white circle rounds with my favorite circle punch, wrote "Thanks for swimming by" in a circle along the parameter, and let my 6 year old draw a single fishy in the center. If you have to make a lot, I recommend using a computer, and printing out. But, this was some fun mommy/daughter time together.
Any cake will do. Choose your child's favorite. We have a family tradition of chocolate cake, because the chocolate crumbs show up best in the photographs!
Fish shaped sandwiches- I purchased Pepperidge Farm's goldfish sandwich bread from the grocery store. Ours were PB&J, but if you have a nut allergy, choose your own favorite filling.
I kept it simple since it was a one-year's birthday party. But there lots more fishy ideas out there. What would you have added?
