The best ideas for hosting an O-Fish-ally One Fishing 1st birthday party.

Fishing is a fun theme to celebrate your kiddo o-fish-ally turning one! The theme can easily work for a boy’s birthday or a girl’s birthday.

I’ve pulled together some of my favorite ideas for having a Fishing themed 1st birthday party.  Shopping small is important to me, so all of the ideas featured below are in my local St. Louis metro area.


Choose from rustic Boys’ Fishing Invitations or modern Girls’ Fishing Invitations for a fun O-Fish-Ally One 1st birthday theme. You can choose from professionally printed invitations or a digital file as the starting point for styling the party.


One of my favorite party tips is to host the party during a non-meal time and only serve sweet treats and light snacks (3pm is my go-to time for my kids’ birthday parties).

These rustic and adorable Fishing Cookies from the super-talented Fairytale Cookie Co are perfect for celebrating The Big One!

This Fishing Cake from Angel Cakes STL has all of the fishing elements – a pole, bobber, and fish – to make a yummy 1st birthday cake.


I love planning and hosting birthday parties, but as a busy mom I don’t want to spend a ton of time decorating. I use the invitation theme throughout the party for decorations that are quick and easy to hang. My go-to decorations for a 1st birthday party are a cake topper, birthday name banner, high chair banner, and milestone picture banner.

Some years I have the time to create these myself, other years I use Dearheart Creations to customize the decorations for my kids’ parties. I absolutely love her “The Big One” Cake Topper, Fishing Bobber Birthday Banner, Fishing High Chair Banner, and Fish Milestone Picture Banner.


Don’t forget to thank guests for celebrating your child’s 1st birthday with rustic Fishing Thank You Cards or modern Fishing Thank You Cards.

The thank you cards are available in my shop – professionally printed and shipped to you or as a digital file for you to print at home.
