Lindsay's 4th Birthday Under the Sea Bash

Grab your tail & let's make a splash!
Join us for Lindsay's 4th Birthday
Under the Sea Bash!
Not only was this party mermaid themed, there was also a real mermaid as a special guest...I will get to her later. Here are a few of the details from the party. I made the invitations first and everything else matched them. This wreath above was made using purple and aqua tulle, shells and pearls. We used it as the centerpiece on the table, but the birthday girl can hang it on her door after the party.
I scattered shells and glass "bubbles" on the purple tablecloth and put the wreat in the center. The Little Mermaid plates were the only thing with Ariel on them, everything else had a sweet little blonde mermaid. The table setting was simple since it was going to be filled with kids!
This banner has purple and aqua paper, shells and pearls. The font was the same on all printed materials. Each letter is lined with silver glitter.These are the food cards, telling everyone what there was to eat.
The cupcakes are chocolate and rainbow chip, frosted with homemade buttercream tinted aqua and spinkled with tiny white sea pearls. The cupcake toppers were handmade and feature the sweet mermaid, pearls and ribbon.
These cupcakes were for the adults-not quite as fancy but still just as yummy!
The food was simple and light. It was a hot day for sure. The drinks were "Ocean Water" (pouches of Capri Sun) and "Salt Water" (bottles of water).
Here is the main star of the party. When my friend asked if I could plan her little girls birthday party, I knew it had to be something completely unique. I found The Mermaid Lady on Facebook and knew it would be the best party yet! The kids had no idea that this "pool party" was going to be visited by a real life mermaid!
The birthday girl got to pick out a special present from the mermaid's treasure chest. She got a shell bracelet.
The mermaid got into the water and played games with all of the kids.
She was so pretty and so sweet with all the kids.
Needless to say, this was an amazing party! Everyone kept telling me what an awesome job I did planning it-every last detail was appreciated by everyone. I am so glad that I got to plan Lindsay's best birthday party ever!

This is cute as can be! All we had here when my kids were young were clowns. Which were great, but a mermaid... Wow! Adorable party!
