    Really love the decor! You truly went all out and created a bright and colorful underwater scene with mostly paper. And the fact that you did everything? Amazing!

  • melissa greer

    Thank you so much for your sweet words, Amy!!! I would love to help you out! Email sent! :)

  • melissa greer

    Thank you so much for all your kind words, Nella! :) :) I LOVE creating most of my decor with paper, I feel it is a very economical way to create the party I have envisioned! I find it fun and exciting to create my parties in the most cost effective way possible, thus making everything myself. The hunt of finding a bargain is thrilling! LOL!! :)

  • Sara

    Beautiful party!! How did you do the seashells for the name banner?!

  • melissa greer

    Thank you!! :) I actually bought shell bras at the dollar store, took them apart and used the existing holes to thread them together with ribbon! The letters were cut out on my cricut and attached with pop dots. It was a very easy project! :)

  • Sara

    Love it!!

  • Andi

    Where did you get the stuffed tails?

  • melissa greer

    I made the stuffed tails :)

  • Bridget

    Can you share any information on how to make these tails? They are ADORABLE :)

  • bethany

    Very cute party! I was wondering where you got the pattern for the mermaid tails?

  • melissa greer

    Thank you! I made my own pattern using left over wrapping paper. :)

  • melissa greer

    Hi! Sorry, I didn’t see this comment. I hand drew the tails onto wrapping paper to create the pattern. From there I cut them out of felt, added the trim and tulle, then sewed together at the sides, stuffed, added elastic for the kids’ waists and stitched the top closed. :) They were a fairly easy project! Please ask if you have any more questions. :)

  • Jessie Palus

    about how much do you think each tail cost to make? Gorgeous party!

  • Candy

    This is just too precious! I was wondering if you could tell me what you used to decorate the ceiling with? The blue fabric? And the green seaweed? What is that?? Could you email me at thomas.candy@gmail.com if you see this message. Thanks!!!

  • Ivy

    Beautiful party! I love everything! I am having a similar type party for my daughter and was wondering if the mermaid tail sat in front of the children with the elastic holding it on…or if their legs went inside with the stuffing?

  • melissa greer

    Hello and thank you! :) The kids actually wore the mermaid tails behind them held on by elastic around the waist. I hope this helps!
