Mermaid Birthday Party at Home

My sweet niece recently turned FIVE! We celebrated her special day with a fabulous mermaid party. Here are a few snapshots from the party to inspire your next under-the-sea shindig.

These themed snacks were fun to make. I wrote out the food tents with markers and embellished with stickers from Dollar Tree. The little crab candies are my fav!
Little Girls Mermaid Birthday Cake Under The Sea
The gorgeous cake was created by Sweet Nothings Bakery, Wyandotte MIdiy mermaid party photo booth prop and backdrop
The photo area was SO cute and was made with crepe paper twisted and taped to the wall. The mermaid photo prop was handpainted by my dad. My mom had this vision and it was such a hit! The kids took dozens of fun photos here!

Kids Scavenger Hunt Party Activity 
Party games included a limbo, lots of dancing, and a scavenger hunt. The kids LOVED the scavenger hunt! I wrote out the clues onto the crab cutouts (from Dollar Tree) and my sister hid them just before the start of the party. The kids ranged from 2-8 and all enjoyed running around the house and hunting for the treasure.

  1. This mermaid birthday party looks fantastic! All party d├ęcor is equally adorable. Thanks for this inspiration. My daughter will be turning 10 soon and we are going to host carnival themed party for her at Seattle convention center. She is eagerly waiting for her birthday bash!

  2. Decorating the venue for the party and getting supplies for that needs thorough planning. St Patricks day coStumes
