Mermaid Mingle

This past weekend, our shop went under the sea and we partied with some mermaids! ICT Mermaids (a new branch of Princess Pros Entertainment) reached out about doing an event together, and we of course said "Yes!" We started brainstorming up fun decor and crafts, and pulled it all together for a colorful bash that Alison Moore Photography did an amazing job capturing.

We wanted to use some of our new mermaid party supplies for this event. The colors are so bright and fun, perfect way to brighten up a morning. We mixed our new mermaid print plates with shell napkins and vice versa - you know how we love to mix and match. Confetti, beads, and chocolate coins were a fun and easy way to decorate the middle of the tables. Plus we went ahead and put out their craft supplies. Rachel was in charge of setting the tables, and did a great job making them whimsical and cheery.

To go with the theme, we had the party guests decorate their own treasure chest and a make a necklace to go inside. I ordered wooden treasure chests bulk from Michaels online, and picked up some sticker gems for easy decorating. For the jewelry making, I found lots of different beads and we set them out on extra sea shell plates. The kids were then able to snag some chocolate coins and their beads to hide inside their chests. We ended up having only girls sign up for the party, but you could definitely do the chests with coins, pirate patches, and other fun treasures if you have boys attend.

We ordered cupcakes from local favorite, September Moon Cupcakery, and she did not disappoint! She said she kept decorating and adding on, the mix is so fun for a mermaid event! Plus the gold tails really stood out, and the colors she chose went well with our party supplies. Other than cupcakes, we served packs of gold fish and Pirate's Booty to match our theme.

The best part of the event was the meet and greet with the Mermaids! We wanted to create an under the sea experience and knew the backdrop was important for pictures, especially since the mermaids are unable to walk around. Rachel worked with Qualatex and came up with a fun bubbles vision. She worked with their linking balloons to create ombre teal bubbles. On the floor, she added long, skinny balloons for the coral. The ICT Mermaids brought their inflatable clam, and it all worked so well together. The party attendees were able to take pictures, mingle, and had storytime with the mermaids. Highly recommend for your next party if your little one is in love with a certain character!

Each little mermaid went home with a sparkly snap clip from shop favorite, Avery & Grey. The packaging was adorable, and she even added confetti that coordinated with ours! Let us know if you would ever like to order as a party favor for your next event.

Thank you so much to ICT Mermaids  for joining us for this fun event, Alison Moore Photography for doing a beautiful job capturing it, Qualatex for helping us with balloons, and everyone that came to the event! Plus, special shout out to the LOC team for helping to pull it all together.

We are also working with Ballet Wichita on a Little Mermaid party for the first weekend of June!
