We had so much fun for C’s first birthday party! I’m thrilled it’s over, but it was a great day! I really had a great time planning it and putting together decorations! I decided on a fishing themed party (my husband is fishing crazy) and did the majority of it DIY.

Fishing Themed Party!
I made the one year old sign by simply printing out the design on card stock and cutting out circles. I attached it to some ribbon and taped it on to his high chair. I also made a sign with his name on it the same way that hung from our fireplace mantle.
I purchased fishing clip art to design the little tags that went on the different jars. I used burlap around several of the mason jars and attached the fishing theme tag to each jar to go with the fishing theme!
We had a small candy/fish table as the goodie bags for everyone that attended the party. The goodie bags consisted of a variety of Goldfish, Swedish Fish, gummy worms, Tootsie Rolls, and licorice.
I had the cake, cupcakes, and smash cake done at our Target bakery. I added the fish to the cupcakes by tying a Swedish Fish to the end of a lollipop stick.
The garland on the table was made from material that I had around the house. I tied it to twine and used bobbers in the garland.
The background came from a piece of material I picked up at Ikea with a cheap fishing net. I found bobbers on clearance and attached them to the net. I picked up balloons in the matching color scheme at the dollar store that morning.
All in all the party was a success! He even licked the cardboard once he had demolished the cake! I think he takes after me…
