Father’s Day is just around the corner, so you might be looking for a fun way to celebrate. Look no further than this adorable Father’s Day fishing party that was created by Michelle Paige! To honor the dads in her family, Michelle came up with a ton of fun puns, food ideas, and cute decor… all DIY, all budget-friendly, and all really special. (And P.S. – these are great ideas for a goldfish birthday party, too!) Enjoy!
The party table is bursting with puns! I love “It’s no fish tale – you’re the greatest!” and “We love you ‘reel’y much!”
M&M’s are “Fish Scales” and Goldfish crackers are “Fish Food.”
The “go fish” cupcakes were made with pretzel stick “rods,” licorice “fishing line” and a Goldfish graham cracker.
Love this – a fish fruit platter made from blueberries and watermelon slices!
Jellyfish cups were made of blue jello, with Swedish Fish on the inside and on top.
The “fishing poles” were made using a Pirouette cookie, licorice, and a gummy worm. Michelle says, “These disappeared so fast!”
The table was set with bobbers, plastic fish, blue cellophane, and DIY painted rocks that served as place cards (check out Michelle’s tutorial here).
A bucket of “bait” awaited each guest at the dinner table. The white buckets came from the dollar store.
Michelle’s kids made the fish balloons – aren’t they cute?
Chocolate cake pops dipped in candy melts and sprinkled with red sugar look just like “bobbers”!
This is such a great idea – the Father’s Day cards are all in the shape of fish and were presented in a fishing basket as “fish ‘cods’ for Dad!”
Even the Father’s Day gifts bore puns – “Without you, we’d be floundering!”, “Happy we ‘caught’ you, Dad!” and “You’re ‘fin’tastic!”
And to top it all off, Michelle created a fishing theme photo booth, complete with fishing hats, poles, and netting.
