These party favors were originally supposed to say “Bait Bucket” and have gummy worms inside, but the birthday boy changed his mind on me and wanted assorted gummy fish. Being all “Semper Gumby” and all, I switched up the bucket to say “Catch of the Day!” and filled them with the fish.
These cute little buckets were actually found at Walmart in their party section for 97 cents each. I had previously purchased the chalkboard tags at Target in their $1 section, and I used treat bags (also found at Walmart – this time in the cake decorating section with the Wilton frosting bags – not the cake mix aisle).
The gummies were purchased from bulk bins at The Fresh Market. All in all, as easy (and reasonable) party favor!
I wrote on the chalkboard labels with a Bistro Chalkboard Marker I bought at Hobby Lobby. The best part about the markers is that with a wet/damp cloth the chalk comes off.
Here are the party cupcakes. They’re both chocolate, the one above has a goldfish and little white chocolate rice balls.
This one is simply topped with confetti sprinkles and a gummy shark. Sometimes simple (and easy) is best!
