The 3rd Birthday, the Underwater Party

What would you be if you lived under the sea? Would you be big or would you be small? Would you wish to be a jelly fish? What kind of fish do you want to be?

We celebrated our daughter's 3rd birthday yesterday with her friends.

We had a lot of fun decorating.

She made the jellyfish with some help from mommy.  I think it is great that she helped make the decorations for her birthday.  The jellies are made from some paper bowls and some stuff that reminds me of Chinese finger traps for the tentacles that I only found at the craft store because I was chasing the munchkin and she kept running down random isles.  She also had made most of her birthday invites.

I also added some decorations on top of our mantle.  I had to dig for some scrap blue fabric.  I didn't have any single pieces that would stretch all away across, so I had to kind of weave them together and make them look kind of like waves.  I also ran out of green streamers, so my plant was a little smaller then I was envisioning.  I do like how the paper plate fishy turned out.  I also made the little blue circle felt garland.  I had always wanted to make one.

It's kind of hard to tell from this photo, but the cake is actually made of three different blue shaded layers.  It's the first round birthday cake I've ever made.  This definitely was a turn your tonged blue and everything else kind of cake, but that's what the birthday girl requested.

There also was some fruit cup boats.  It is so hard to find healthy cute birthday snack ideas.

I made some very cute favors.  They are fishing poles and you can catch 3 fishes, a jelly, and a boot.  I plan on doing a more elaborate post on this later with patterns and things.
