As mentioned in my earlier, Fun with Fish post, we just celebrated Kiddo #2’s very first birthday about a month ago.

Similarly to his older sister, I wanted a fun theme for his birthday celebration, even though it was just family attending.  After endless Pinterest searching and much back and forth, I finally decided on a fish theme.  Now, I’m not one to head to a party store and buy up the “birthday” section so, I started my search for all things blue (water) or polka dot (fish bubbles) early.

I had such fun finding little items here and there that went with his fish theme.  Most everything I found was of course from Target.

Underwater Paper Fringe Garland :

I found these adorable paper fringe garlands which I had planned on making myself, but come on, at $2 a piece how could I not pass it up.  I think it was a fun way to emulate the way the sun shines underwater in shades of blue and purple.  I bought two and they were each about 7′ long.  So we cut them in half and were able to get two for the price of one!

 

The homemade Fish with poles were such a hit.  Check out my earlier Fun with Fish post on the how-to’s.

Fish Themed Paper products : 

The Marimekko tablecloth was a steal.  It’s made of a thicker cloth like material so I’ll definitely be holding onto this for future parties.  I found this one as another option in lighter blue raindrop patterns.

 
The napkins, plates and cups were too great.  I loved all the different patterns and shades of “underwater” blue I was able to find.

I bought a small cupcake stand and then painted it a soft aqua color.  This ended up holding Kiddo #2’s smash cake.  Then, I simply traced the top circle and cut out a cute chevron paper for the cake to sit on.  I love the scallop of this cake stand.

Fish Birthday Cake :

I made a Butter Pecan birthday cake (Lets face it, I eat WAY more cake than Kiddo #2 so it had to be a flavor that mama loved, ha).  I have learned my crafty limits and my limit is at decorating cakes.  I attempted to decorate Kiddo #1’s cake since all my girlfriends make these unbelievable fondant character cakes that look better than life.  I can honestly say, it was so-so to poor.  Nothing wrong with knowing our limitations.

 
So, this cake had lightly blue dyed frosting with a little “wavy” thing going on.  To keep with the fish concept, I cut out a few fish from orange polka dot paper and taped them to wooden squewers.  Easy peasy.
