Ellie's Goldfish Birthday Party

Share It:
We had a blast yesterday at Ellie's goldfish themed party!  The weather was incredible here in Jersey and we spent the whole time out on the deck or playing football and Frisbee. The kids got a chance to run through the sprinkler too. It was a great day and, while I'm not sure Ellie knew it was a party in her honor, she seemed to enjoy herself!  Here are a few pictures.  I'm a little disappointed that I didn't take better ones. I thought they were great and then when I loaded them up they were fuzzy or the color was off. I'm the worst photographer!  I need a teacher.

The candy and dessert table


Those twirly sticks are cream filled cookies. Found those at Dollar Tree. Aren't they cute?

My nieces and nephews have come to expect soda in glass bottles at our parties now. How can I disappoint?

These cupcake decorations were my favorite part. I love the little fish stickers!  It's impossible to find goldfish specific stickers so these were the best I could find.

Not sure if the grill was working, we opted for a good ole 6 ft. hero.

I covered a regular party hat with scrapbook paper, a crepe paper ruffle and pom pom and a smaller version of the cupcake decorations.  I'm hooked on embellished party hats now!

The birthday girl!  She wore a light blue bloomer-blouse set that had red and orange fish embroidered on it. She looked adorable!

I know y'all are wondering why we put the food table in front of the air conditioning unit?  Well, it was the only shady spot at the time the sandwich was delivered and you know, no one likes sweaty cheese.
