When I asked her, Audrey said she wanted a mermaid party! I loved the idea, so I ran with a mermaid/ under the sea theme! If you saw my posts about her first and second birthdays, you know I go a little theme crazy! But I do it because I want her to have a special day that is just about her and not about Christmas.
So the first thing I did was design the invitations and get them out in the mail!
For the decorations, I tried to make it feel like we were under water.
Next, I did the table decor.
You can also see the favors for the kids in the above collage. Everyone got their own under the sea activity placement and some ocean stickers. The girls also got pearl mermaid necklaces that I made and the boys got either a whale or a shark toy.
And of course there were balloons!
For the food, I stuck tight to the theme as well.
And then, of course, there was dessert!!
Overall, it was a really fun afternoon! I think all the kids had fun playing together and the cupcakes disappeared in the blink of an eye!
To give credit where credit is due:
I found the clip art for the invitation just by searching for free clipart on Google.
I found the paper lantern jellyfish tutorial on Party City's website.
A lot of my inspiration for both the food and decorations came from Pinterest.
I printed out the cake decorations and attached them to string and straws, but again, the mermaid was clipart I found searching on Google.
