Aowyn LOVES The Little Mermaid and rotates between wanting me to sing her “Ariel Songs” and “Elsa Songs”, 2 years ago she had an Elsa party so it is only fitting that this year she chose a Little Mermaid Birthday Party.
As soon as she decided on a Party theme I took to Pinterest and we can up with some really fun ideas to celebrate her birthday. Lots of work and love went into this birthday party and she and I both had a blast making all the stuff and throwing the party.
I bought the banner flags on Etsy and attached them to the ribbon and made all the tags using a template I got on Etsy.
I made some Oyster Cookies out of Shortbread cookies, frosting and chocolate pearls. They were actually incredibly delicious and were the first thing gone.
I got a cute little sea shell mold on Amazon and made fun colorful chocolates. Aowyns favorite chips are Sour Cream and Onion so we used them as our Sand Dollars. Her cake was probably one of my most favorite things to create. Girl cakes are so much fun. I love making my boys cakes too especially when they were little and I got to make a Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, Star Wars, Finding Nemo and Harry Potter cakes, I always have a blast creating them.
Each girl got a treasure box to paint. I bought some necklaces and bracelets off of Etsy for each girl (the bracelets never came).
In true Little Mermaid fashion I made some Dinglehopper cupcakes.
Each girl got a little princess Ariel candy bag full of chocolate candy pearls to take home with her. I covered the bottom of the cups in Gold Glitter because who doesn’t want glitter at their birthday party?
I made a 5 out of tissue paper and a cardboard number 5 that I got at Hobby Lobby.
I hung tuil and crate paper streams from the ceiling to give us a fun ocean back ground (and the hide the dishes that I hadn’t done yet.)
I cut up and layered plastic Walmart $1 tablecloths to add to the cute ocean theme table setting.
The girls had fun painting their Treasure boxes. And decorating their cookies. Pops gave Aowyn her very own pink fishing Pole and Frozen Tackle box. Id say al in all it was definitely a birthday party fit for a Princess.
