Fishy Birthday Party

My grandson, Carter, turned 3 a couple weeks ago and his mom came up with a “fishing” theme for his party since he likes fishing in his papa’s pond!  I spent some time at my Spring Stamping Retreat cutting all the pieces for the banners, invitations and cake decorations!  Thankfully his mom put them all together!  It was lots of Big Shot work!  But since he had THREE birthday parties, the decorations really got used and I’m sure they will be borrowed by other friends.  We were inspired by some photos on Pinterest.


Here’s the birthday boy with his cake…isn’t that cute?  The sign says “Carter is three”.


Carter Birthday
Here’s the party invitation with details on the back…I made the fish in several different colors!


Carter Fish Birthday

It was a beautiful day so the party was outside…this is one of the banners with bobbers and fish and balloons!

Bobber “lanterns” hanging from the dinette light…she painted white lanters along the bottom to look like bobbers.

He really felt like a special little boy and enjoyed being the center of attention at each of the parties!  What fun!


A few details:

Bobbers were made with the Round Framelits and the retired angled square punch.  Fishes were made from Oval Framelits with the Gift Bow Die for the tail and fin and the largest Scallop Oval Framelit for the scales on the back.  Eyes with Circle Punches.

Miss Connie, You are so wonderfully creative – I don’t often see many things/shapes beyond what they were going to be; Carter is so fortunate to have such an awesome & generous (to us) grandma. Thanks so much for sharing.
