Our Little Mermaid is turning TWO!


Our little mermaid is turning two and we celebrated under the sea style!

Design Inspiration

I grew up loving the movie The Little Mermaid so it became my inspiration for my daughter's 2nd birthday party. I didn't want to theme the party around a character so I just used the mermaid and under the sea theme and ran with it! I was very excited to create an under the sea fantasy for our little mermaid! I wanted it to be bright, fun and full of fun surprises for all the mermaids and mermen who were attending!

Decorating Style

Creative, fun, bright and unique!

Project Details

Everything for my daughter's party was handmade by me. I put a lot of thought and work into every detail. My Cricut and sewing machine sure did get a workout with this party! LOL!

Favorite Items

My favorite items of this party include:

1.The stuffed mermaid tails for the mermaid and mermen to wear! The kids LOVED these and it was so cute to see a bunch of little mermaids and mermen running around the party!

2.The mermaid on the wall. I hand drew this and cut it out of poster board. The tail was gorgeous with all of the 3d scales!

3. The jelly fish! I just love how they turned out!

4. The terra cotta pot sea animals! They were adorable and the guest loved them!

5. The CAKE! My SIL is amazing when it comes to cakes and she did not disappoint! It was very detailed and GORGEOUS!!!


Pick a theme and run with it! I love over the top! When making something make it a little bigger than you think you need and the impact will be amazing! You can't go wrong when you put love and hard work into everything you create! :)
