Father's Day Fishing Party

Do you have a plan for celebrating Father's Day?
Want to celebrate with a bit of fun and puns?  Of course you do!
Well, get out your fishing gear and your Go Fish card game...


It's a fishing themed party for Dad!  He'll love it!
("Hey, Dad...I think you have your hat on backwards!")

Father's Day Fishing Party


Lots of fun details to check out at this party.  (This post contains affiliate links to help you find products.)
I put my kids in charge of making the balloons.  Aren't these 'balloon' fish fun?  Regular blue & light blue balloons with an animal twisty balloon  tied around it.  Use a Sharpie to color in the eye.

 Every party must have cute food, clever ideas and of course, puns!
(There just happen to be a ton of fish puns out there.)



The kids made fish 'cods' for all the dads.


The menu consisted of fish sticks, salmon burgers, (seaweed) aka salad and fruit placed strategically on top of a glass fish platter.
(1 sliced marshmallow and 1 blueberry made the eye.)



and jellyfish?!  Oh yeah!
(Blue jello with Swedish Fish swimming inside and outside!)



At each place setting was a bucket of bait. Which was really gummy worms in white mini tin pails.



Blue cellophane, bobbers and plastic fish lined the table.
The name rocks came from this post.  Click here.



Lots of fish treats included... M&M's and Goldfish crackers.
(Vintage Fish pitcher found at an antique shop...it gurgles when you pour it!)
Have you seen those Gurgle Pots - they're adorable!  I think I want one in every color!


Go Fish cupcakes.
(Pretzel stick rods, licorice fishing line and a goldfish graham cracker.)

(Cake pops dipped in white candy melts and red sugar sprinkles.)


Fishing pole treats!

1 Pirouette rolled wafer cookie tied with shoestring licorice and a gummy worm.  (These disappeared so fast!)

 


(Appetizer fish plates were found at Target years ago.) However, I love these Mandydov fish shaped plates  found on Amazon.



Do you remember the lesson I learned from this post--click here,
I must always have a photo shoot at my parties!
How fun are these pics?

Fishing poles, fishing hat, life jacket and a blue shower curtain made this photo shoot a success!
(Not to mention all the dads and the adorable kids!)


Happy Father's Day, Dads!
Go Fish!

  26. Um, so this is the cutest party ever! You truly thought of everything! I really love the puns because my dad is notoriously "punny", so this would fit him perfectly. You had so many cool food ideas, too! Love, love, LOVE! Thank you so much for sharing this at The CSI Project this week!
