Because their little fishy was turning one, guests were invited by way of these cute goldfish invitations to swim on by for some birthday fun. I love how a framed copy of the invitation was used in the décor. Isnt that little fish just adorable?
Outfitted in a bright blue table covering, the refreshment station was a sea of appetizing sweet and salty snacks. I love the way the banner by A to Zebra Celebrations hangs over the table and incorporates all of the vivid party colors. Simple white platters and clear glass apothecary jars are good choices for striking edibles, including candy and gumballs. Candy is a great way to add a pop of color to a party table! Orange, polka-dotted, chocolate covered Oreos, by Sweeties by Kim, and colorful macarons, by Sparkles Macaron, look enticing! Popcorn is always a popular snack at parties, especially where little guests are present. Melita dressed up the glass popcorn vessel with a printable goldfish sticker and orange ribbon. Sea glass inspired lollipops, by Vintage Confections, look lovely as part of the dessert offerings. An assortment of impressive sugar cookies filled a tiered stand and overflowed on to additional platters. Its hard to pick a favorite, isnt it? Kay, of Rollin In Dough, designed and decorated the blue, round cookies with Aleks name on them. Renee, of Bees Knees Creative, made all of the other gorgeous goldfish and seashell cookies on the table.
Paper sacks were embellished with thanks for swimming by Aleks 1st birthday labels. I imagine guests had fun filling these up with favorites to take home.
I love when cakes are made to coordinate with the chosen party theme. This beautiful cake, from Beverlys Best Bakery, does an amazing job of replicating elements from the invitation. I adore the little fish bowl tier with the sweet little goldfish. And arent those polka dots a sweet touch?
A colorful beverage station was set up where guests could choose from apple and orange Izze sodas or bottled waters with precious custom beverage wraps. Notice the color coordinating stacks of blue cups and napkins displayed nearby. Cute straws, from IsAKay Boutique, were topped off with festive party flags that Melita made.
Melita had also decorated a beautiful outdoor tented space for guests to enjoy. The addition of colored balloons and paper lanterns added fun undersea inspiration.
When little guests are invited to a party, planning for an activity station is a wonderful idea! Melita organized under-the-sea crafts that involved coloring and using sea-life stickers. In addition, a caricaturist created guest caricatures as party favors. How awesome is that? Guests also took home sand pails filled with beach inspired toys. Each included a custom party favor tag to add that special detailed touch.
I dont think the birthday boy could be any cuter next to his hand-painted wooden one, which not only served for a fun photo prop, but was also a great way to anchor the party balloons. I can only imagine how much that sweet little boy enjoyed his personalized smash cupcake!
What a memorable goldfish first birthday party for one special boy!
