How to Plan A Mermaid-Themed Birthday Party
Trying to plan a themed birthday party but feeling like a fish out of water? I've put together a few of my favorite mermaid-themed party ideas in this post that sure will get the seal of approval from your little one.
1. Mermaid Party Invites
Nothing gets the birthday mermaid excited like pre-event planning. Download your free mermaid-themed invite here.
2. The Costume & Crown
3. The Balloons
This balloon kit is a statement piece and is sure to get the whole crowd excited for photo opps. It comes with all the supplies for a show-stopping mermaid tail. Bonus: these don’t need helium to look spectacular.
4. The Decorations
Jellyfish Paper Lanterns
These paper lanterns are a minimal-effort, high-impact decoration that will make your guests feel like they are under the sea. Add some fishing nets and seashells for an authentic sea-life vibe.
Banner and Pom Poms
Another bang for your buck is this kit with purples, pinks, and aquas. Personally, I can’t get enough of those tissue pom poms. Hang them from the ceiling or attach them to the wall with painter’s tape. That way, you only have to fluff one side. Time saver!
5. The Table Settings
6. The Gift Wrap
I may or may not be overdoing it, but I love matching the wrapping paper to a kiddo’s birthday theme. The presents themselves become part of the decorations.
7. The Party Favor Bags
These are another one of those multipurpose items. Not only can these mermaid tail cones be stuffed with treats and used as party favors, they can be hung on string to make them part of the decorations. You’ll have to buy extra ribbon to hang each up, as the ribbons included are only enough for tying the bags closed.
8. And Breathe...
Remember the days when you'd be driving all over town running errands? What a relief that you can plan your kiddo's birthday party right from your sofa. Now that all the hard work is done, it's time to pop some bubbles and celebrate your baby. Be sure to tag us @leotardboutique!
