Mermaid Themed Birthday Party

I don’t know very many girls who aren’t absolutely enchanted by the idea of mermaids! This birthday girl definitely falls in that category, so it was quickly decided that the perfect idea for this party was going to be a Mermaid Themed Birthday Party! Her mom got her a mermaid tail some time ago and ever since then, she knew what she was going to have!

Mermaid-Dessert-TableThe colors for the party included aqua, coral, blush and pink – all perfect colors for an ocean theme, where all of the mermaids love to spend all of their time! The party was held at a private residence and there were 18 little mermaids and their families that attended the party. How fun!

Mermaid-SignPartylicious has been styling parties for this family (including 3 girls and 1 boy) for quite some time now, and every party seems to become even more magical and amazing! Ideas started flowing quickly after the theme was chosen and thanks to the great inspiration found on Pinterest, along with perfect decor pieces found in local stores, things started coming together quickly.

The color scheme gave the exact look that was desired. The textures of the tablecloth, the 3 balloons with tassels, the ribbon in the background and of course … those desserts! Everything was perfect and absolutely gorgeous.

Many other delicious desserts were included, such as cupcakes, French macarons, brownies, coconut macarons, sugar cookies, meringues, cheesecake cups, chocolate covered marshmallows, chocolate covered Oreos and Nutella tarts.

  1. These are all wonderful ideas! My daughter would truly love this set up. Those cupcakes are adorable and quite simple to make.

  2. Hi there —

    Could you tell me where you got the white coral on the dessert table and where you got the blue vases that have the fishing netting around them…I’m doing a mermaid party in August and have been looking for these! Thanks and congrats on a fabulous tablescape — this needs to be in a magazine!
