Mermaid Party: Aubrey’s Little Mermaid Party. For my daughter’s 5th birthday this year we threw a fin-tastic under the sea mermaid party. Be sure to check out all our Under the Sea and Mermaid Party Ideas and Inspiration.
Welcome to Mermaid Cove! For Aubrey’s fifth birthday party, we really wanted to make a splash with some fun under the sea. Aubrey loves mermaids, so for her birthday it was only fitting to have a mermaid party with fun little mermaids made to look like Aubrey. The colors were lavender, aqua and green with lots of sand and yummy goodies.
We transformed the house and yard into a beautiful mermaid cove with bubble balloons, seaweed (streamers sewn to make them ruffle), and tons of floating jellyfish. The printables were designed with pretty shells, mermaids, and bright under the sea colors to accent the ocean floor of sand and seaweed covering the tables. The entry was lined with bubbles (balloons) welcoming each guest into mermaid cove where they could dress like a mermaid or a pirate and join the underwater fun.
The little mermaids ate freshwater and saltwater cupcakes topped with cute fondant toppers made by Edible Details. They also had Sea Star and Oyster Pearl cake pops from Nikki’s Cake Pops, Adorable Shell and Mermaid cookies from Crafted Cookies and Sugared Hearts Bakery, chocolate dipped rice kripsy treats, and Lavender Macarons from Splendid Sweet Shoppe. The cake was made by me and featured fondant waves and a brown sugar beach top complete with fabulous ocean themed fondant letters by Edible Details. The mermaids also had many non sweet treats including finger sandwiches, veggies, fruit, and some Blueberry Le-mermaid.
The guests were all able to make their own bubblegum necklaces or pirate hats for the boys, play sea shell bean bag toss, pin the starfish on the mermaid, chase bubbles and swim in the mermaid lagoon. Check out all the details of the mermaid party activities. It was a fun time under the sea.
For the cake, I made a simple 9x13 chocolate cake which is frosted in white cream cheese frosting. I cut green and blue fondant into waves and wrapped around the cake. I then topped it with brown sugar to look like sand. Lastly, I surrounded the fondant with glass candy.
Foam board cut out waves made a great photo op!
I covered the top of the backdrop with paper starbursts.
I can’t believe my little baby is 5 years old!!! I love this little mermaid so much!! Thanks to all who helped make her day special!! Next week I will be sharing the mermaid party activities and mermaid party tutorials to follow!!
