Last weekend my little girl turned FIVE years old!
We went back and forth a little on what type of party she wanted, but ultimately settled on a “Mermaid Birthday Party”.
Thankfully Pinterest is always my friend and guides me to the best of the best crafters with awesome ideas to create a great party. Here are some shots from the day. And by “some” shots, I mean, I am sorry for an extremely picture heavy post.
Welcome Mermaid sign for the front door.
Summer helped me “design” her very own birthday shirt. She did a pretty good job.
One of my favorite things in our house has always been our chalkboard wall. The kids play on it all the time and it always gets used for birthdays and holidays.
Our party was mid day so we just did some finger sandwiches, and snacks.
I was going to make my own rock candy, but for real, after reading how to do it and that it can take a couple of weeks for the crystals to grow I decided to bag it and just buy them!
How fun are these marshmallow pops? They are super cute and the were really delicious!
The clam shells were also a big hit. It is just frosting in between two nilla wafers and a sugar bead for the “pearl”
Love my sweet birthday girl!
Everyone loves mermaids– What is your mermaid name? Mine is Mara Aqua Rain
I got these hula hoops on clearance a while back so I grabbed them for “party gifts” for the girls!
Last minutes I decided I didn’t want to make cupcakes myself. I was swamped with other things and was just running out of time. Walmart to the rescue and the colors were exactly what I wanted. I made these adorable little cake toppers to go with them.
A pinata was really the only “game” I planned and the kids all left with bags of candy!
Look at all these sweet girls (and one boy!)! I am so grateful for all of our amazing friends that gathered around my girl to celebrate!
After presents and some cake and lots of playing with friends it was time to wrap up our day of fun!
This little Mermaid was as happy as a clam! Happy Birthday sweet girl!
