Shimmering Mermaid Party Details:

This is what Mallory shared about the party- “I’m so excited to share my daughter’s 2nd birthday party with you and I hope you love it as much as I do!

The theme was pretty easy to select since she loves all things mermaid (including Ariel) and is such a water baby herself. I spent half my life in Hawaii and loving everything about the ocean, so planning for her mermaid party was so much fun for me. Fortunately, I had a lot of the items at my home to pull the theme together and I had my daughter’s help in decorating which added such special details to her big day. The colors I selected were: light pink, gold, teal, and lavender. I love when these 4 colors come together.

Party Date: 12/10/2016

Glue gun it all together.

Terrarium- Mermaid theme. The air plant was mine. The mermaid was from Ebay. I added the moss from Hobby Lobby. After the party my daughter has this in her room. She really loves small figurines this size so she was excited to see it the next day after her party in her nursery.

I did everything myself, with set-up help from my mother and father, and 2 staff from Dream Big Children’s Center. I prepped every platter/as much as I could from home the night before (except the food), and covered it with saran wrap to prevent it from moving or getting dirty.

Fruit- Cut the day of the party

Octopus hot dogs- cut a hot dog in half. The cut 8 tentacles. Boil in water AFTER cut.

Crab croissants (I don’t think we have a photo of those)- Add googley eyes to toothpicks and stick into top of mini croissants.

Babybel cheese- kids love to snack on cheese

Pink goldfish

Carrots & ranch dip

Baja Fresh – Food Delivered. Placed the order a week ahead. Paid the night before. Worked with Skyler, evening manager. He was so helpful and knew what kids like to eat at parties!

Balloons: Party City (except the mermaid balloon & the #2 balloon). Get the filled Hi-Float and pick- up the night before.

Air plants in sea urchins- I had already. The kids table has mini sea urchins and the adults table has the full size. Great because there is no soil and they are very lightweight to transport.”
