Unique Mermaid Party Ideas For A Fin-tastic Birthday
Updated: Jun 14, 2018
So you wanna throw a splash-tastic mermaid birthday party? With a little planning, your little one's ocean party will go swimmingly and you’ll create so many memories! Here are a few ideas to make your celebration the pearl of the neighborhood!
Think Outside the (Treasure) Box!
Of course a pool is a great location for a mermaid party, but if you are not lucky enough to have one (or know someone who does) you may have to get a little creative! Check your area for local splash pads (Like the Keeley Park Splash in McLeansville, NC or LeBauer Park in Greensboro) and see if they book parties. Splash pads are great because they can include every guest, whether or not they can swim. Or perhaps reserve a shelter in a local park near a lake (like City Lake Park in Jamestown or Oak Hallow Lake in High Point) to still give off “oceany” vibes. We have seen basements and garages transformed into darling mermaid lagoons. A open space in a backyard is also a great place to host a party, set up water play stations such as a mini swimming pool for splashing or even a sprinkler! Encourage your guests to dress to get wet!
PRO TIP: Be an extra special host by taking all your little guest's towels upon arrival and return them warm from a quick dryer spin when it is time to dry off for cake, food and presents!
Creating a Enchanting Mermaid Lagoon
Decide on your theme and colors months in advance so that you have plenty of time to gather perfectly matching supplies. Of course a Little Mermaid theme is a popular option, and it will be easy to find character themed plates, balloons, and party favors at your local party supplies store. However, don’t rule out doing a generic mermaid theme with your child’s favorite colors or even a swashbuckling Mermaid and Pirate Theme! Or perhaps try combining your child’s favorite princess with mermaids, Cinderella’s Mermaid Masquerade is sure to be a party like no other that your friends and family have attended.
Mixing DIY projects (such as our up-cycled cardboard box Mermaid Cove sign) with store bought decor is a great way to ensure that your son or daughter’s celebration is not a “cookie cutter” party. Don’t forget a photo space for silly photo booth pics and selfies! You can create a simple one with plastic tablecloths hung sideways as “waves”. Check out our fun DIY Mermaid Centerpiece idea, straight from a mermaid’s grotto.
Another way to create a full mermaid lagoon experience is through fun party food ideas. Quick grab-and-go snacks such as pretzels (Driftwood), grapes on skewers (Seaweed), and goldfish are sure to be crowd pleasers. Parents love to chat and chew on more hardy food such as “seaweed” spinach dip and "coral reef” veggie trays. Ocean water and Sea foam Punch are great for cooling down after so much splashing around. Don’t forget to label your cute, themed food! (we love using small chalkboards)
