Seashore Birthday


Friday was my son's first Birthday, and naturally we celebrated with a party.

All Aboard!

Nautical decor to welcome the guests

Good thing my family is the the fish business,
I had lots of decorations to choose from.
 
 Under the Sea
 Mini cupcake holders flattened out


Fortune fish were a hit!


 Clams
Made with wafer cookies, strawberry frosting and a gumball.


 Gummy fish, sharks and worms on sticks.

 I used a cookie cutter and cut out pb&j fish (cookie cutter) sandwiches


I made blue icing and tried to make it look like waves then added chocolate rocks.
 The mini cupcakes for the kids had the same blue wave icing, but I added some gummy fish to them.

My take of pin the tail on the donkey
The fish was made with left over scrapbook paper from the Happy Birthday Banner.

The hubby even got in on the action
 Crab pull string pinata. It was great for indoors and a 1 year old.


Here's the Birthday Boy


As you can see, he was a little sad at cake time, other than that he had lots of fun!

(I found a lot of my ideas on other blogs, however I forgot to save the pages so I could give them credit. Sorry if I borrowed your idea without making note of it, but thanks for all the inspiration!)
