Reeling in the Big One!

I loved creating the party decorations for my friend’s son’s first birthday. Future fisherman Cale had a fishing theme birthday party. I created a fishing vest invitation. The invitation had 4 pockets, each with a cute little detail on them, a fish, the number 1 representing his age, his initials, and a bobber. Next, I made a t-shirt for Cale to wear on his big day. The shirt had the word one on it. A bobber was added in place of the O and a fish was added to the inside of the letter E. I made a matching high chair banner with the word one on canvas flags and added fabric strips to each side of the flags to add color and and fullness.  For his party decorations, I made a three layer bobber banner that read Happy Birthday Cale, a bobber photo banner to hang a picture of Cale for each month of his first year, fish garland, centerpieces that included a bobber and a fish, confetti, a cake topper, and cupcake toppers. My big surprise to my friend was a painting I made of Cale fishing in a boat. I’m terrible at painting faces so I blew up a picture of Cale’s face and glued it to the canvas and painted a scene of him fishing in a boat. Everyone loved the invitations and party decorations and got a kick out of the painting of Cale. Here are a few pictures of the party decorations.
