Under the Sea / Little Mermaid Party


This Under the Sea party was sooo much fun to plan!
My sweet, adorable niece wanted to have a Little Mermaid Princess party, so I decided to turn it into the ultimate "under water" celebration.
The decorations really set the scene. "Waves" made of draped fabric and streamers created the water above us, while balloon "bubbles" dangled from the ceiling and covered the floor.
I created a "grotto" for the birthday girl, complete with a framed photo of Eric and a bouquet of "dinglehoppers" (forks). I also made a clam shell with a pearl pillow for the birthday girl to open her presents on. It was soooo incredibly cute!
Fun games like a sea cave treasure dig, fishing and an under the sea pinata kept the kids entertained, while yummy munchies kept the adults happy.
I found an idea for PRECIOUS seagull cupcakes from Hello Cupcake, which might be one of my favorite parts of the party.

  1. WOW! I mean...WOW! This party looks like it was so much fun--not only for your niece, but for you to plan, decorate, and throw. I can't get over the decorations; you went all-out! I think my favorite little touch is the seaweed! And the grotto with the shell and pearl pillow for her to sit on--ingenious!

    My niece turns 7 this summer and she really wants a pool party. I was thinking of doing an "Under the Sea" theme and you've convinced me that is the way to go! Thank you for all the great ideas and tips!!!
