PARTY DETAILS, as told by Bethany

My daughter LOVES Ariel, but I’m not a huge fan of character parties so we compromised on a whimsical mermaid theme.  The color scheme was mostly blues and greens with hints of pink and lavender.  I wanted the dessert table to be the focal point of the party.  I fashioned the backdrop to look like it was under water.  I used paper streamers to simulate water and topped it with beautiful paper medallion “bubbles” I got from the party store.  I found the idea for the paper lantern jellyfish from Party City.  My friend Donna from Swish Printables designed all the invites, food tents and game signs for the big day.

Everything had an ocean theme, the food, the games, the decor.  The kiddos munched on goodies like Sea Shell Cookies, Pearl Pops, the Catch of the Day (Goldfish), Mermaid Tails (rock candy sticks) and Jell-O Fish, just to name a few.  They searched for buried treasure in our sandbox, made messages in a bottle and went fishing for prizes.  As a special thank you they took home a Squinkie Ariel in a jar (I found this idea via the TomKat Studio) and pearl bracelets.  The kids all had a blast!  And my little mermaid got the party of her dreams!
