Fishing Birthday Party

 Fish on! 

Grab your bait and fishing rod and join me for a Fishing Birthday Party.  My cousins girlfriend did a great job on this party.  With a Cricut, Pinterest and a little in put from me, Kirsten threw one fun memorable party.  Even my cousins friends were commenting on all the great details. I don't think you understand how amazing that is. Guys, GUYS commented on the details.  Ladies, you understand the significance of that. 

This adorable invitation arrived in my mailbox and set the theme for the party.  Kirsten made this with her Cricut. I love the play on words and the jute fishing line detail.  I doubt these details were noticed by my cousins friends. Keep scrolling for the details that they did notice.

When you pulled up to the house this giant sign directed guests to where the party was.  Another cute play on words.

This sign was created using the Cricut, I really need to get me one of those.  The jute fishing line attached to a real bobber added a fun touch and the cattails and reed grass made you feel like you were out on the water waiting for the fish to bite.

The deck was covered in fishing net and we attached Cricut cut fish with hooks. The haul for the day looks pretty good so far.

These bait buckets were a hit with the kids.  Filled with sour gummy worms, regular gummy worms and other candies.  The bait buckets were found  in the Target dollar section and we wrote on them with chalk.

A fishing party wouldn't be complete without fish to eat. We frosted these in a lovely shade of Salmon.

Now THIS is a detail the men noticed.  The fishing bobber lights and fishing tree.  My cousin had recently cut this tree down in his yard and we decided to make it a party prop.

Cricut cut fish, bobbers and bait of several different varieties.  The men really liked this tree.

I love the POPs of colour! I'm a colour girl. The brighter the better. Ok, maybe not neon, but I'm attracted to bright coloures.  That little lime green lure, yep, my eye went straight to it.  Made you look ;)
