Goldfish Party: Part III








Success!

The party was a hit and most importantly,
the birthday girl had a lot of fun

I made cupcakes and a goldfish cake for dessert. The goldfish cake was simple: make a cake and bake them in two 8 or 9 inch pans. Place them on top of each other after baking and cut out a fish shape.  I tried to shape and round the edges a little, but I didn't want to mess with it too much. Afterward just frost it up and dab on M&M's starting from the bottom then going up. Then add one brown M&M for the eye.


The cute orange/polka dot cupcake liners are from Bake it Pretty (along with the fish fortune favors)



I made these pearl/clam cookies with vanilla wafers, orange frosting and a tic-tac. The kids loved them



We had the tables covered with coordinating confetti with little photos of the birthday girl 
and small bowls with goldfish crackers


As well as an assortment of other kinds of fish crackers
-chocolate, sour cream & onion, pretzel, regular cheese, and parmesan
I also made a "blue sea-foam dip" (sour cream and onion)

We dressed the area in blue and orange streamers and balloons and hung the banner 



For games we played:
a fish-bean bag game
had a fishing pond
musical numbers
and a dance contest

The dance contest was a big hit with the kids!

The food included:
hamburgers
hot dogs
pearl/clam cookies
veggies
watermelon
potato salad
chips
dip
various goldfish crackers
cupcakes
otter pops
ice cream
