Mermaid Themed Birthday Party

This amazing MERMAID THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Gayle Williams of I Will Invitations. What a fantastic under the sea party that any girl would just adore! I love the sea shell desserts made with cookies & frosting! Everything is just too cute.

This is what Gayle had to say about planning the party- “My daughter Keely is absolutely besotted with anything to do with Mermaids. The Disney character Ariel has always held a special place in her heart too so it was easy to decide on a mermaid theme for her fifth birthday. The guests came in and participated in a jewellery making activity. Each child
could choose their own beads to make a bracelet and the last piece threaded on was a beautiful little corked vial (reminiscent of cute messages in a bottle) from ‘These Tiny Treasures’ that was filled with mermaid dust. The children were told that when they next had a bath to try dropping a few pinches of the glitter into the water and they might just turn into mermaids! Lunch was a seaside favourite: fish and chips. Next each child was given a mermaid cardboard cutout with a glittery foam tail to decorate. Another activity held during this time was pass the parcel, with lots of bubble type prizes. Finally we had the unveiling of the dessert table. The centrepiece was a two-tiered chocolate mud cake decorated in light blue fondant with handmade white
chocolate shells. I made the Tim-Tam fish cake pops and blue jelly jars (with small white lolly fish inside). The clam cookies were simply pink frosting and round mints inside 2 macadamia nut cookies. Sherbet bottles that looked like message in a bottles sat next to Guerlain chocolates and handmade pink glitter seahorses on sticks. I painted up craft boxes to look like sunken treasure and filled them with candy necklaces, chocolate coins and ring pops. I purchased Styrofoam balls and cut them in half, attaching on pink marshmallows with toothpicks to make sea anemones.

Rock candy stacked on top of each other created coral like formations and to further the coral theme, I purchased marshmallow twists and used bright pink coloured plastic flowers to drape down the backdrop. Lanterns hung down from the ceiling and lengths of crepe paper hung off them to look like jellyfish. We also used hula hoops to drape crepe paper off to make
seaweed lengths. Finally we had a bubble machine to complete the look.”

    hello. I’m interested in the water backdrop used. The link you provided is not working. Please let me know where I can find it. I’m celebrating my daughter’s birthday and it’s the nicest water backdrop I’ve seen. Thanks!
