A few weeks ago we had Ava’s 3rd birthday! As the opinionated 3 year old she is, she requested a mermaid birthday party. We cancelled her big birthday party with our friends and family due to Covid, but the closer it go to her party, she kept asking if her grandparents were going to come over and celebrate and I couldn’t resist telling her no.
We made it completely optional and 100% supported anyone that didn’t feel comfortable coming, which I think made all parties happy. Cue the 48 hour party planning.
Can you believe this cake was under $25 and from the grocery store?! Our go to for cakes is HEB. They make incredible looking and tasting cakes. We also had a local baker make the most adorable mermaid themed cookies. The last dessert option we had was mermaid popcorn. It’s super easy to make. All you need is popcorn, vanilla bark, food coloring, and sprinkles.
For the food, I wanted it to be super simple. Again, I had 48 hours! I went with a veggie tray, “crabby” sandwiches, and chips. I made both ham and turkey sandwiches, hot glued googly eyes to tooth picks to make them look like crabs.
The balloons were the hit of the party! I worked with an amazing company, Posh Pop Balloons, to create the amazing back drop and mermaid tail. I mentioned the color scheme and theme, and they dreamed up balloon ideas better than I could have imagined! These ladies are super talented, as you can see from their Instagram, so if you’re in Houston, I highly recommend reaching out to them!
That about wraps it up! If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments. I hope this gives you a little inspiration for your mermaid party!
