Fishy Theme Baby Shower |

Awhile back I did a post on my ideas for a fish theme baby shower that I helped put on for a friend and her adorable son (who is now almost ONE!! WOW time flys!)

The mom and dad of the little guy we put the shower on for love fishing and met at a camp where they both used to cottage and fish.
So we thought a little 'fishy' theme would be just perfect!

I realized that I never posted photos of how everything came together.
So here are a few photos from the shower:

The Shower Invitation - complete with yellow, blue and green fish, bubbles and blocks!


The awesome cake was made by Wilma with Mill Street Cakes. The cake stand was made out of upside down sand pails and the cupcakes each had an alternating green and yellow fish on them. She made a little baby fishing for the cake topper! Too cute!

Table Centrepieces with LIVE fish in them. The green ribbon vases were placed on the table with blue table cloths and the blue ribbon vases were placed on green table cloth tables.
I found the the colourful tissue paper confetti at the grocery store and liked the 'boy colours' it came in and sprinkled it around each centrepiece.

The Food Table

Blue Punch with fish floating in it.

Fish Crackers and Swedish Fish placed in blue and green sand pails.

Fish folded napkins (tutorial HERE) and blue plates.

I used a tin can to look like a 'bait' can and put gummy worms in it.

Lots of fish theme candy...


Balloons and fish 'strung up' with twine in the archway.
The fish are a banner that reads 'Baby Levi'

A photo of Levi and one of mom and dad with their fish on their honeymoon.
We played a guessing game and asked guests to predict how many individual diapers would be given as gifts.

We also played a 'fishing for advice' game where a few ladies got to go fishing for one of the magnetic fish in the pail - each colour of fish had a corresponding question to go with it 'i.e. What advice would you give the new mommy to help her deal with sleepless nights' etc.

The Gift Table - Photos of the new baby were also playing on the TV throughout the shower.

Hope you had fun at your shower Levi!!

Looks like all these ladies and gifts have tired you out!
