PARTY DETAILS:

This is what Holli said about the party– “When the Mother of my daughter’s best friend asked me to plan her daughter, Abby’s 4th birthday party, well of course I jumped at the opportunity. I know Abby loves mermaids, so immediately I knew we would be using the printables from my “Under the Sea Mermaid” collection. When planning a party, I always start with an inspirational piece, a theme or in this case a color palette to compliment the main theme. Abby loves pink and the color blue was the obvious choice to set the tone of the party.

I wanted to create something that had movement and was sophisticated yet adorable enough for a bunch of 4 year olds to get lost in their own imaginations. Immediately I knew I wanted to create a sweets buffet and I was just looking for a reason to repurpose my old hutch. With just one coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint I was able to achieve that aged beach look I was looking for. Because this hutch was chalked full of sweets, I strongly advise to always offer a treat bag, or in this case a treat box which I adorned with a simple starfish, for the kiddos to take home. I also handmade white chocolate shells, which I already had the molds from my own wedding and I handmade the white chocolate blue “under the sea” lollipops from simple molds I found at Party City. A couple of my favorite finds were the gorgeous French meringues and the turquoise foil wrapped honey mint chocolate disks I found at Trader Joes. I found a ton of fun candy from yours truly, Kara’s P arty Ideas and I picked up the rest of the candies in the Easter sale section at Target.

When planning an event, I always like to hand make something special for the guest of honor to keep. I learned how to make paper medallions at my monthly girls craft night, hosted by the amazing and talented Melaine Thompson of My Sweet Savannah….so I simply embellished with a starfish, “wish” carnival tags, painted pink matting and a simple Ikea frame. What a sweet way for the birthday girl to remember her 4th birthday. I also painted and glittered a cardboard crown from Hobby Lobby and topped it all off with this handmade blue ribbon garland, mixed with multiple colors and textures, to add that movement I was looking for.

One of my favorite aspects of this whole party was the gorgeous, gorgeous ruffled table cloth, designed to mimic the colors of the ocean, made by my dear friend Uriah Gentry. To vertically flank the food table, I created length with these handmade tulle and tissue poms, mixed in with blue paper lanterns. With this party, I tried my hand at many DIY projects (for all you DIY’ers) and tried to repurpose my printables for multiple uses. These beautiful blue glitter vases are actually pickle jars, which I painted the insides with Modge Podge and topped off with Martha Stewart fine glitter I had on hand. My bottle wraps were used for these Starbucks glass jars (yes I drank them all), and were wrapped around pretty ruffled pink ribbon. And I just adore these cute little seahorses I cut on my Cricut, which wrap around these paper straws perfectly.

The cake table may be one of my favorite elements of this party…so simple, yet delicious. The cake was made by my favorite local bakery. Miss Aspen, of Oven Monkey Bakery, always sends me out the door with a smile on my face. In this case, she mimicked the design on my printables to top the cake off perfectly. Abby’s Mom and I made these yummy pink ombre cupcakes and I found the amazing candelabras at a garage sale to display them on. Since my straws were already in a happy place with the cute seahorses, I used the paper straw flags to create a simple flag garland. I love this effect and could be so cute used as cake bunting as well. Now the tricky little medallions were harder than they look (hint: measurements must be perfect). I found a fun little tutorial on The Tomkat Studio blog.

Each girl was sent home with a full candy bag, mermaid bubbles (wrapped in the “Under the Sea” bottle wraps) and sweet flower soaps. Abby is already planning her 5th birthday party. Time to start planning!”
