Welcome to a very special version of Atlantica, where the jellyfish have rainbow tentacles, mermaid tails are plush and there are “Dinglehoppers” a-plenty! Isabelle Craft of Bella C Parties crafted up this wonderfully creative Little Mermaid Birthday Pool Party for a very special little birthday mermaid. I am just LOVING all of the clever DIY details — from a beautiful under the sea inspired photo booth to the adorable Dinglehopper-adorned hair bows. I think we can all agree that in this case, it is definitely better down where it’s wetter! :)
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
- Little Mermaid dress up table with miniature gold tritons, seashells & a cutlery candelabra
- DIY lantern jellyfish with ribbon ‘tentacles’ + adorable mermaid tail towels
- Dingelhopper topped ruffle birthday cake with fondant mermaid tails & kelp + brown sugar ‘sand’
- King Triton clamshell cookies & an Evil Sea Witch drink station with black licorice drink stirrers
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Isabelle…
For this pool party, we dove “Unda da Sea” and transported guests into Ariel’s mermaid kingdom! With splashy elements like our jellyfish lanterns, mermaid tail towels, and ship anchor favor bags, the undersea motif was in strong effect. And, of course the birthday girl LOVES The Little Mermaid, so we incorporated all of her favorite movie elements, with Dinglehopper Hair Bows, Sea Witch Punch, King Triton’s Clam Cookies, and more! The kids loved all of the little details, and even had fun with some Little Mermaid trivia. For activities, we had kiddie pools, an inflatable water slide, and played “Mermaid Sack Race” with old pillow cases — they had a blast!
