How to Plan the Ultimate Mermaid Birthday Party

There’s several trends these days when it comes to parties and one of them is the mermaid party theme. Did you know that the Mermaid Birthday Party theme doesn’t have to only be for summer time birthdays? All girls will love celebrating and pretending to be a mermaid for a day anytime of the year.

In today's post I have the Ultimate Mermaid Birthday Party planning ideas - from the mermaid outfit for the birthday girl to the amazing mermaid bath set (which I’m sure the mom will enjoy herself after the party planning is complete).

You likely remember me sharing about Craft My Occasion previously and her line of line of mermaid party supplies that she has created for children of color to help them develop a positive and loving self-image. Well, this mermaid party collection is now available and includes everything you will need to throw the best Mermaid Birthday Party Bash.

And, of course, the birthday girl would be ecstatic to have her very own Mermaid Party Outfit like this one from Belle Threads. It’s full of shimmer with the sequin top.

To top off the entire Mermaid Outfit are the prettiest Mermaid Lace Crowns from Love Crush Crowns that are handcrafted + sculpted from lace.

When the party is over - it's time to thank your guests for splashing by to party with you. These Mermaid Favor Tags are available in my Festive Fetti etsy shop and feature hand-painting on the fins and scales for extra shimmer and sparkle. They also come with the ribbon to they are ready for adding to the favor bags.

But, before the party starts you will want to invite the party guests over for a Mermaid Birthday Party "Shellebration". Bri of Half Pint Design has created this printable mermaid themed invitation as an instant download.

Having the perfect backdrop behind the dessert table or your Mermaid Cake is easy with this pretty Mermaid Inspired Fabric Garland from Giggle Living. There’s even sequins and pearls in between the fabric. Then, after the party, this garland can be used as a decoration on the wall in the birthday girls bedroom.

After all the party planning and celebrating the day of the party, the mom herself will need a little pampering of her own. So this amazing Mermaid Bath Set from Sunbasil Soap with soaps, bath bombs and scrub is just what she will need.

Now, the only thing left to get your Mermaid Birthday Party underway is to get your guest list together and plan on a splashing success with your Mermaid Party prep.

DIY : Fresh Fruit Drink Stirrers + a Watermelon Printable Invitation

I've been seeing drink stirrers everywhere lately - so I figured why not create edible drink stirrers that your party guests {both kids and adults} will love. I only had watermelon and blueberries on hand this weekend - but the ideas and colors for this are endless. {think cantelope, honeydew, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc}. Simply cut the melon fruit into slices and then use a cookie cutter in the shape{s} of your choice. You could even use a melon baller if you wish. Berries wouldn't need any cutting. Bamboo skewers or plastic stirrers are great options to hold your fruit. Amazon has many choices for drink stirrers{and in colors} to choose from.

And, since you will need to send an invitation to have your guests over to celebrate, how about this brand new one I've added to my etsy shop? It's a print-at-home invitation that is available as an instand download. You simply purchase, download and print away. There's 4 invitations to a single 8.5x11 page, so if you only need 24 invitations - you only need to print 6 pages. You can even import the file into a photo editing program if you choose to type in the party details. Purchase your Summer Celebration Invitation Here and get ready to have lots of fun in the summer sun. And, remember, you don't necessarily need a specific reason to party. Even having family and friends over for a casual get together can be made even more exciting by sending an invitation via snail-mail.

Ants Go Marching On : a fun summer themed "just because" party

Have you seen the latest issue of Polka Dot Balloon Magazine? It's available to view online here and Pamela Smerker, who I've worked with many times thru my wedding blog, is the editor-in-chief for this publication. One of the cute party ideas in this issue is The Ants Go Marching On, created by Christie Gutherman. I love the idea of surprising your children with a special little party to kick off summer and celebrate the end of the school year. Sometimes the best little parties with kids are the ones that are totally unexpected.

I couldn't locate the same mini picnic basket as the one featured in this shoot, but a medium size basket with two handles can be found here.
