Reel ‘Er In! Fishing Party

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

Spaceship and Laserbeams is back on the blog today with another innovative party for you.  We’ve featured this Etsy Collective {made up of Stephanie of Spaceship and Laserbeams, Goodness Bakeshop, and Hello Dear}  many times before like here, here, and here.  This party was created for Stephanie’s son Sam’s 2nd birthday. Since Stephanie is from the fishing province of Newfoundland and her husband is a fly fishing instructor, Stephanie decided on a fishing party.  She styled the party to feel like community wharf where men are repairing their fishing nets.  The textures of the props and plaid pattern reflects the natural built landscape of Newfoundland. We love how the styling included wired props, newspaper, rusted vessels, and burlap.  Desserts included orange mousse boats with a chocolate chip “sail”, watermelon “fish pops”, newspaper-wrapped cantaloupe sticks, “reel ‘er in” and “bait” cupcakes, orange basil cake, and blueberry shortcake {egg, dairy and preservative free}.  Little fishermen signed the “fish” guest book with their fingerprints. The little fishermen also took home their own tackle treat box!  We’re HOOKED with this design! Fabulous job, ladies!

  • This party is no “Fish Tale!” Once again, they got all of it right…hook, line and sinker!

  • I love the commemorative art for each person to sign. I wish I had done that when my children were little – great memory for the birthday boy to have [ and mom ]!

  • What an unusual, but wonderful idea for a boy’s birthday party. I love the newspaper wrapped cantaloupe sticks and I bet the party guests were absolutely thrilled with the tackle treat boxes.

  • A lot of great idea. Thank you

  • I absolutely adore this! Especially considering you haven’t gone for the typical nautical blue/white theme and incorporated all aspects of fishing, My favourite is the cake – looks yummy!

    I know you’ve gotten this question 10 times over but I didn’t see the answer in the post or comments. Where did those fabulous tackle boxes come from? Thanks so much. Great party! Love the styling. Especially the color theme
