This weekend we had ourselves a Finding Nemo themed pool party for my almost 4 yr old.
My daughter just recently saw the movie and it has been her absolute favorite these last few weeks.
So obviously when party planning started all I kept hearing was pool party and nemo.
I really thought this would be the easiest thing to pull off until I hit up my party decoration go to places (Target and Party City) to find absolutely nothing with Nemo on it. I did find Nemo products online but add in shipping and it was more than I wanted to spend on decorations I didn't really care for.
After hours of scrolling thru Pinterest for ideas I decided to go the route many other woman before me had done. Make the decorations myself and hit up Etsy for anything else.
Thanks to my photoshop and Etsy I was able to put together a fun little party that my kid absolutely loved and was kind to my wallet! Win and Win!
I made this tissue fringe backdrop using the tutorial found here. The backdrop was so easy and cheap to make! Helpful tip: I bought 2 foam boards at the 99 cent store and taped them together to get the size I wanted!!
Sister if you are reading this Thank you so much for making the cake and cupcakes!!
The favor bags were sweet and simple. I was determined to use whatever I already had on hand. The bags themselves were your plain old paper lunch bags. I just slapped on some Thank You stickers and voila instantly pretty! I made the coloring books on photoshop and the kids loved them!
Because I had such a hard time finding nemo goodies, I decided to lend a helping hand! If you find yourself throwing a nemo party use these free printables!!
Helpful tips: I printed the tags on regular computer and just cut them out (you can use card stock as well).
For the thank you tags I printed them on sticker paper and cut them out and stuck them on baggies!
Super easy and will add the Nemo details your kiddo will love!
