I recently came across an adorable kids party on CAKE. Photographer Michelle Dumais threw a 1st Birthday Party for her son, Abraham. He loves fish so she decided to go with a beach goldfish theme for his party.
The menu: sandcastle (ham & cheese) sandwiches, pasta shells with "seaweed" pesto, skewers with melons cut in fish and starfish shapes, tiny beach buckets with veggies and ranch dip, jello jigglers with Swedish fish, blue lemonade, and of course, Goldfish Crackers.
Michelle was incredibly creative on a budget and made the invitations, the cake, the happy birthday bunting and goldfish pinata. The party favors were sidewalk chalk in ice cube trays from Ikea. The orange and aqua metal pails are from the dollar bin at Target. The polka dot straws are from ETSY.
