On the weekend Max turned three and we celebrated with a Fish party. Max has been looking forward to his party for months, it was so good to finally be able to share it with him!
We had half a dozen of his little friends come over for the party and we celebrated with games, lunch, present opening and cake.
I decorated using streamers, a shell and starfish garland, coffee filter number three, and a burlap birthday banner. I'll put up a tutorial for the birthday banner and number three soon :).
For lunch we had chips, fish shaped crackers, sandwiches (a mix of vegemite, jam, chicken, ham and egg), fruit and vege sticks in dip. Max loved that the jam and vegemite sandwiches were cut in circles and has decided he wants all his sandwiches cut that way from now on!
For the games we played pass the parcel and went fishing in Max's paddling pools. The fishing game was heaps of fun and I'll post the details about that later too. Surprisingly pass the parcel was not so much of a success. We played it last year at Max's 2nd birthday and it went really well. This year there were a few tantrums over who's turn it was, whoops!
At least it was good practice for present opening time. All the kids chipped in and helped Max open his presents :).
Desert (always my favourite!) was a chocolate mudcake with 'fish scale' icing, fishing rod cupcakes, jelly, lollies, marshmallow pops and plain milk. The cake took me 5 hours to ice, but was totally worth it! I'll post more details about it soon.
fishy party bags for the little ones to take home.
I feel like I can breath a sigh of relief that it's all finished now, I'm so happy that Max had such a great day :).
