Jack is a fan of all things Pixar so when we were trying to pick a theme for his birthday party, we were trying to decide between his three favorites: Cars, Nemo, and Toy Story. I had already done a Cars party for Ryan so I didn't want to do that again. Jack seemed really happy whenever I showed him Toy Story or Nemo stuff, but it seemed really fun and fitting to do a fish/ ocean party in the month of June for my water lover. I made a little invitation and emailed it out. I also found some darling little cupcake picks on Etsy that had Nemo on them and I bought them. What I should have done was checked at Party City or Target to see if anyone actually carried Nemo stuff in town. Had I done that, I may have chosen a different theme because there it NOTHING in town that has to do with Nemo. The only Nemo thing I found was a cute little candle from Vons and it was in the gift wrap section, not in the birthday cake decoration section. Regardless of my decorating challenges, I really like how everything came together.
A 2 balloon instead of Nemo but we did have real goldfish in a bowl
My little non-smiler
Love this look
Delicious cupcakes with my own version of rainbow chip frosting with Nemo colored chips
What a look
Big brother Ryan "helping" Jack with every present
We all had a great time and the kids had a blast. Thanks to everyone who came. Jack loves all his gifts and Ryan is just waiting for him to loose interest so he can have a turn.
