Dad and the boys checked out the dock Friday night and tested out the fishing and on Saturday afternoon family came up for hot dogs and cake, and of course the fishing fun. I didn't get nearly the most elegant photos I had envisioned, but it was a whirlwind of a weekend. I did a cute little banner that went right along with our fishing theme and I strung it on fishing line with Christmas ornament hooks. This was my favorite banner I have made to date!
I made these Pinterest inspired cupcakes only I substituted coffee stirrers and Swedish fish. You will find my pinspiration here.
I also put blue food coloring in the Sprite and made what we call the Chocolate Pudding Field of Worms and labeled it as bait. I unfortunately did not get a picture of them :( Here is how you make the bait buckets, though.
Chocolate Pudding Field of Worms
- Roughly 30 Oreos, crushed
- gummy worms
- 2 (5 oz) Cook-N-Serve Jell-O chocolate pudding
- 3 cups of milk
The party was a hit and the boys both agreed it was one of the best birthdays ever!
