Mermaid Sea Soriee

Mermaid is a party theme that is here to stay. It's fun, colorful and most little girls love mermaids - I mean I did and that was many moons ago. When a friend of mine reached out about throwing a mermaid birthday party for her adorable daughter at the shop, I was excited to put a new spin on this popular theme! Who doesn't love going under the sea for a morning?

Emily, the birthday girl's mom, did a great job mixing and matching our mermaid supplies! Love the iridescent mixed in; such a fun combo and adds a magical, under the sea feel. We covered the center of each table with a mermaid confetti mix - it also had flecks of iridescent. Confetti is a great way to add color to your table and we have lots of fun options. Emily ordered some adorable personalized napkins in a light purple that matched the supplies well and pulled out the purple accents of the supplies.

Activities at a five year old's are very important in order to keep the little guests entertained. We used a couple classics here - decorating treasure chests, making treasure jewelry, and decorating pirate treasure maps. Michael's has the best option for wooden treasure chests. They also had a bag of sea creature beads that fit well with the theme (purchase these in store). The pirate maps and patches for the boy guests were purchased from Hobby Lobby. To add some color to the craft table, we used leftover mermaid scales from a past mermaid party. They also had a fun pinata that was filled with take home party favors for the guests.

For the backdrop, we went with the seaweed and sea creature look. It is easy, affordable, and so fun for a little girl's birthday party. We purchased green streamers from The Dollar Tree, taped at the bottom and then twisted up at different heights. We cut out fish, sea horses and starfish silhouettes from shiny papers. It was topped off with a mermaid balloon ordered through the shop - the purple hair was perfect with our color scheme!

Emily put together the cutest food spread for this party! It was around lunchtime, so she wanted to serve sandwiches and sides. She got food crafty, and added fun touches to kid favorites. Crab sandwiches, octopus veggie tray, and mermaid fruit skewers made up the delicious spread. For the cake, she ordered one with a pretty color theme that coordinated the supplies - love that Ariel like silhouette!

We always love helping Emily pull off pretty parties for her birthday girl! The color scheme was very fitting to their style, and worked so well with the supplies.

Mermaid isn't only a summer theme. Host at the shop, and we will make it work all year around!
