Does it feel like spring in your neck of the woods yet? It does in mine. I am super excited for the warmer weather.  I LOVE spring and summer, sunshine and the warm air. There is just something about driving to the beach for the day.  And, I LOVE Spring and Summer parties.  Whether you are having your shindig at a local park, beach or pool or in your own backyard, there is just special about warm weather parties.


☑️ This Mermaid Party Kit is the perfect set to get your party planning headed in the right direction!


One of my favorite warm weather party has got to be Mermaids.  There are sooo many things you can do with a Mermaid party.  From seaweed streamers to shell shaped serving plates…the possibilities are endless!!!

Here are some of my favorite mermaid party ideas:

Mermaid Cupcake from The Cake Mamas

This.  This mermaid cupcake is #goals!!!   It’s absolute perfection. Not only is is absolutely gorgeous, but it just looks like it tastes sooo amazing, right!!!  I love the glitter and the chocolate shells…I love it ALL!! I need some of these cupcakes in my life right now!!

Mermaid Bark from Bread Booze Bacon

I love making bark…it’s surprisingly easy, always tastes good and can dress up any dessert table.  This bark is so pretty too.  Apparently,  most mermaid parties tend toward the Ariel birthday party colors of purple, green, teal.  This bark could easily be done in pink or blue or whatever color your little mermaid prefers.

Mermaid Cookies from Sugared Hearts Bakery

Oh, I love these cookies.  In fact…these are the cookies I ordered for my daughter’s mermaid party.  The mermaids on these cookies are drawn to match my printable mermaid party decorations, so that is a definite bonus if you are considering splurging on these beauties.  They taste amazing and they are gorgeous!!!!

Both parties used balloons hanging and/or paper lanterns to give the effect you were under water and used hanging streamers to feel like seaweed.

The cupcakes frosted with blue frosting, topped with white chocolate star fish and various shells and then sprinkled some crushed up gram crackers to look like sand and topped with the printable mermaid cupcake toppers.  All of the food was named to go along with the mermaid theme, including spinach dip (seaweed dip), carrots/celery/cucumbers (crab legs and sea cucumbers), peanut butter and jelly sushi rolls, rainbow goldfish (shark bait), chips and dip (sand dollars), slider hamburgers (crabby patties) and hot dogs cut and cooked to look like octopus. To drink, they served lemonade with a small amount of blue food coloring in to make it green with floating plastic kelp in it (kelp koolaide).
