To celebrate our daughter’s fifth birthday we invited five of her best friends over + enrolled them in Mermaid Academy. I thought it would be a fun idea to call the party an academy, let her guests participate in mermaid activities + then send them home as graduates. I decorated our home in beachy blue, turquoise, white + gold. It turned out so cute, y’all! Here’s a peek at the details.I contacted a local bake shop, Lux Sucre Desserts, about having a cake made for the party + they gave me multiple mermaid-ish options to choose from. We chose a rustic ombre cake + I absolutely LOVED the way it turned out. I topped with a golden 5 sparkler wand + it was perfection.
On the top of each place setting was the Mermaid Academy Checklist I designed, which highlighted all of the activities for those attending Mermaid Academy:
- Pick a Mermaid Name.
- Get a Mermaid Manicure.
- Color a Mermaid Masterpiece.
- Go on a Starfish Hunt.
- Make a Splash.
On each of the chair backs were super comfy Mermaid Academy tees. The girls looked so cute in their Matchy-Matchy Mermaid goodies. =)
And when the party came to an end, each guest left with their Mermaid Academy tees + their Mermaid Academy Graduate Gumball Scrolls.
It was such a fun party!
Here are a few more details.The Mermaid Masterpieces that the guests colored came from The Hanna Blog.
