As someone that kind of sees glitter as a party “necessity” myself, I am LOVING all the glitz & glam featured in this extra sparkly Little Mermaid Under the Sea Birthday Party! Lynda of Storybook Bliss channeled some serious crafting skills for her little girl’s special day… from the glittery faux “cake” pictured above, to an incredible Little Mermaid inspired mural backdrop that she and her girls made all by themselves. Nice work, ladies! ;) Scroll down for a peek at the mural, as well as lots of other fun party details. And if you’re on the hunt for even more inspiration, you can check out some other great mermaid parties that we’ve featured right here.
P.S. Since this is the last post before the weekend, I also wanted to wish you all a very Happy Mother’s Day! :)

- Glittery chevron Ariel inspired cookies & chocolate seashell topped Ariel cupcakes

PARTY DETAILS as told by Lynda…
My little girl Sophia loves the Little Mermaid so it was no surprise that she wanted a Little Mermaid inspired theme for her 3rd birthday party.
Creating an entire world of enchantment under the sea has probably been the most revved up and enjoyable party planning experience that has brightened the eyes of my girls and friends, alike. I mean, who can resist a colorful palette of varied shades of purples, aqua blue, and of course who can forget the sparkle (I know I can’t)? I love textures, colors and varied shapes, but the key to this sensational color scheme is the contrasting colors I chose to add dimension and necessary flair.
The backdrop for this party is actually a mural that I created along with my girls, Meili and Sophia. We worked on a piece of the mural every day and watched it transform before our eyes. Needless to say, guests were captivated with this under the sea picturesque, whimsical under the sea elements, and gorgeous sugar cookies — inspiring a splash of curiosity and adventure!
