With lots of little girls growing up dreaming of creatures and adventures underwater, we couldn’t wait to put together a very special party for one very lucky birthday girl. We teamed up with Lisa from Burnt Butter and Claire from My Little Tribe to host a mesmerising mermaid party not to be missed!
For the backdrop to our shimmering celebration we simply draped silky blue fabric from above and paired it with personalised birthday bunting, giant balloons and beautiful lanterns from The Party Parlour. A tablecloth speckled with sequins and glitter along with a scattering of shells meant our party table was good to go.
As our mini mermaids and mermen arrived they were treated to awesome underwater face painting from Pixie Faces, who took inspiration from the ocean to make sure everyone looked the part.
With everyone ready to dip their feet in the water, it was time for the party games to start! Our resident mermaid, Jenny Saunders, gathered the children in a circle and told stories of underwater adventures. Hunting for mysterious creatures in the garden and blowing big blue bubbles made our mermaid’s eyes sparkle.
Each of our mermaids and mermen were given personalised lunch boxes and drink bottles to keep their tummies happy. Having this much fun can be thirsty work!
Our mermaid themed feast was nothing short of magical. Thanks to Burnt Butter the party table was overflowing with delicious party food for our guests to dive into.
With crab croissants, fish macaroons, starfish cookies and mermaid meringue tails taking centre stage, a treat table this tasty didn’t stay full for long!
Our mermaid lunch boxes were a definite hit with the little ones and made the birthday feast fun for all. Even the grown-ups were giggling at the crab googly eyes.
For a spot of last minute deep-sea fun, we played a game of ‘Pin the Tail on the Mermaid’ (get your free printable here!). As the mermaid picture was passed around the circle, partygoers were blindfolded and given tails to pin in place. It’s always fun to end a party with this classic.
Before leaving the party and heading for the shore, our guests were given favour bags filled with bubbles, shells and sea-themed treats along with a lovely thank you tag to take home.
Partyware featuring our Mermaid Party themed stationery including, personalised invitations, lunch boxes, bunting and thank you gift tags.
