Jenny’s overall concept for this party space was to transform it into a grassy fishing area reminiscent of ponds where she likes to fish. To accomplish this, she spray-painted inexpensive paper lanterns to make oversized fishing bobbers and hung them above her table for visual interest. Brilliant!

Boys Vintage Fishing Birthday Party Centerpiece

Next, she created a table centerpiece from a box, faux grass and reeds from her local dollar store, and a cute “Jack’s Fishing Hole This Way” sign. Doesn’t it look amazing?

Jenny borrowed a fishing basket, reels, and bobbers from her husband and added woven baskets to the table for interest. Instead of covering the table with linens, she used the natural wood top to keep it simple and rustic.

Printable fish from our collection were strung with jute to look like the catch of the day. We love how Jenny displayed them as chair backers.

Boys VIntage Fishing Party Plate Setting Decorations

Jenny used real dishes as part of her tablescape, but with a unique touch: Jenny wrapped each charger plate in brown and teal yarn to harmonize with our vintage fishing printables. Silverware was wrapped in white napkins and accented with a small party circle.

Boys Vintage Fishing Party Water Bottle Lables

A bottle of water accompanied each place setting, dressed up in a custom beverage wrap from our collection. Each cap had a “reel ‘em in” sticker on top.

To keep costs down, Jenny chose to forego buying actual tackle boxes for each child’s party favor. Instead, she found small dollar store containers that looked similar to what a fisherman would use to store bait, flies, and small fishing gear. She added gummy worms and topped the containers with a variety of our labels for a festive look. Jenny displayed all of the favors in a real tackle box—so cute. This vintage fishing birthday party is adorable.
