Bright orange, bright blue, and goldfish galore was the theme for 1-year-old Jackson’s birthday party! Jackson’s mom Diana chose the theme because Jackson’s favorite food is Goldfish crackers. She hired Dazzling Dessert Tables to make a wonderful cloth backdrop that was the highlight of the decor, and added loads of papercrafted details that made the party special.

Not only is the backdrop adorable, but it perfectly matches Jackson’s invitation!

All of the goldfish-shaped tags that labeled the candies were handmade.

This is the cutest idea! Aqua-colored Sixlets with little orange Goldfish crackers “swimming” in the fishbowl. Aww!

The blue table held party favors, and the orange table is the sweets bar. The desserts and candy included a cake, iced sugar cookies, gourmet popcorn, white chocolate covered pretzels with fish sprinkles, York Peppermint Pattie Pieces, Reese’s Cups, blue and orange M&M’s, Goldfish crackers, Sixlets, Cookies and Cream Hershey Kisses, rock candy, Jelly Belly Jelly Beans, gummy sharks, and lollipops.

Another great idea: The lollipops are displayed in a fishbowl that’s full of marbles and plastic goldfish.

Printable party circles and cupcake topper circles (layered with color-coordinated papers) were used to create custom favor boxes, party hats, and party blowers.

A lot of love went into all of those details – you can tell!

Thank you so much for sharing, Diana and Dazzling Dessert Tables! Happy birthday to Jackson! : )
