Tomorrow, the 12th, Little Miss will officially be FOUR! We celebrated a little early with our friends and family by throwing Little Miss a MERMAID birthday party at a local lake just minutes from our home.
I used all sorts of ideas and goodies from One Charming Party’s Mermaid Guide and even more from Pinterest. My collection of mermaid party ideas can be found HERE.
I had such fun decorating and preparing for the party. Here is a little peek at our decor & menu.
Menu consisted of: PB&Jellyfish, Goldfish, Sea Cucumbers, Crab Legs (carrots), Sushi Sandwiches (pinwheels), Deep Sea Oyster Pearls (grapes), Snickerdoodles, Marshmallow Pops, Blueberry Muffins & Donuts
Little Miss loves activities so that is something I certainly wanted to incorporate into her party…

A party wouldn’t be complete without CUPCAKES! Sam’s club did an amazing job baking and icing our cupcakes and cakes, BUT I’m pretty proud of my mermaid pearl decorating!

A June party just wouldn’t be complete without SNOW CONES for every one!
We had an amazing celebration of our Little Mermaid with many of our family and friends! Watching Little Miss play with those she holds dear to her heart at her party made me realize how grown up she is getting. This party is such a wonderful memory!
Little Miss’ BIG birthday present was her surprise playhouse, but I’ve really been wanting to get her a CD player for her room. There she is opening it at her party!!!! It is definitely a huge hit, she is constantly listening to music and books in her room.
Now that this celebration is over its time to get my ducks in a row for Miss Grace’s 2nd birthday in July!
