Gone Fishing Party

Hey everyone, it’s Autumn from Autumn Lynn’s Chocolate Sins! This week I am excited to share with you the gone fishing party that I put together for my boys!! Having two boys born 6 days apart I am lucky enough to have a double party each year!! This year the boys decided on a fishing theme!! We used THIS party package from DimplePrints to create our party–one of DimplePrints’ largest party packages YET!

I really wanted to keep the party kind of rustic yet use a lot of color!! I was super lucky to have Carli at Dimpleprints create this gone fishing party package just for my event!! Every fishing party needs a tackle box!! My boys were turning 4 and 6 so I wanted to be sure to display that on their table….the top of my tackle box was the perfect place!! I then filled the tackle box with catch of the day chocolate covered Oreos, yummy gummy worms, and fishing reels made of out tagalong Girl Scout cookies and marshmallows (super yummy)!! Since you can never have enough chocolate I also used candy bar wrappers and covered Hershey chocolate bars!! The tackle box was by far my favorite element of the table!!

My oldest had come up with an extensive list of items that he wanted on the table!! Cake pop bobbers, bass chocolate lollipops, popcorn, and dirt pudding!! I was hard at work making all his wishes come true!!

Having his entire wish list covered…I felt the need to add a few other personal touches to the party!! I added fishing poles, cat tails, sugar cookies, and of course gold fish!! The inspiration for my fishing poles can be found here. I love how the gold fish turned out displayed in there little fry boxes…perfect for the guest to pick up and take along with them!!

The cake was a collaborative decision that my boys came up with…I think my sister did a great job making the tackle box cake and she even made the fish match the fish in the gone fishing package!! I added Chex mix to party cones and named it fish food…everyone’s got to eat right!!!

Although I wanted to create a drink station…the weather was not real cooperative..so the drinks were just put out on a regular table in hopes that if it rained we could get everything in the house quickly!!gone fishing extrasThe signage at the party was a huge hit!! Dimpleprints always impresses me with the amount of options they add to their packages!!!

Dimpleprints party packages also come with images that allow you to make your own shirts…of course I did this…it saved me a ton of money and they turned out super cute!!
