fishing Birthday 

party ideas

If you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate a special occasion, why not plan a fishing party? Fishing is an activity that can be enjoyed by all ages and can make a great theme for a birthday or retirement party. 

Hanging Fish Banner

I had a hard time finding pre-made decorations to fit exactly the theme I envisioned, so I designed the fish banner that includes a bass, trout, and catfish. After I was finished, I cut it out and attached to the twine with craft wire made to look like fishing hooks.

Bait Bucket Cupcakes with Gummy Worms

The bait bucket cupcakes are made of chocolate with a milk chocolate buttercream. I crushed up some chocolate cookies for the “dirt”. I put a sour gummy worm on each cupcake so that they looked just like the night crawlers at the tackle shop.

Fishing Pole Cupcakes

I used a pretzel as the rod and hooked on a goldfish with some craft wire. You can also use licorice! The “water” was made from blue candy pearls, but I’d recommend using blue sprinkles or buttercream, since the pearls can be a hard on little teeth.

More Snacks

I finished off the table with some bobber cake pops, Swedish Fish, root beer, and gummy worms in mason jars. To balance everything out, I filled some apothecary jars with rainbow goldfish.
