Real Parties: Little Mermaid Birthday

Who doesn't love a Mermaid party? I have been to several of these 'under the sea' events, even shared a few right here on my blog, but I have never actually hosted one! With all the fun details, a Mermaid party might be in my future. Today, I am featuring my niece's 3rd birthday, hosted by my sweet sister-in-law Jenn.

 The Little Mermaid

The adorable birthday girl loves the Little Mermaid,  so Jenn planned lots of 'Ariel' themed food and activities. I love having parties at home because you can get so creative. There were just a handful of kiddos, so it was a relaxed atmosphere. Both the children and the parents enjoyed themselves.

The Mermaid Food
The cornerstone of any party is the food. Kids were treated to themed food that was cute, tasty and good-for-them!
Gold Fish and Gold Fish Sandwiches

Starfish Sandwiches

Rainbow Fruit

Ocean Water

The Cake
My talented mother-in-law made the cake. I love how the icing on the side looks like water. 
Jello Fish Bowl
This treat is beautiful and fairly easy to make! Jenn followed the tutorial from Martha Stewart, you find it here. 

The Mermaid Activities
After some lunch and free-play, the kiddos gathered to make their own mermaid (or mer-man) tails. Jenn used foam and a template to cut out the tails. The kids stuck on foam stickers- which was fun for all ages. Bigger kids can spell out their name or make patterns with the stickers.

Mermaid Tail Craft

Pin the Tail on the Mermaid
An 'under the sea' twist on a classic game. Using the mermaid tails the kids decorated, the blind-folded child has to correctly place the tail on Ariel.
Fun for All
I really liked this theme, because it is easy to do with both boys and girls. 
Make a Wish
The party wrapped up with cake and smiles. The birthday girl's headband was made by attaching a star fish to a plastic headband. You can find all the supplies at your favorite craft store.
Happy Birthday sweet girl! Thank you Jenn for sharing your party- it was a lovely day!
