Countdown to the girl’s 5th birthday party is on, and she’s landed on The Little Mermaid as the theme. I was pushing for Cinderella, but no dice. So, the little red-headed fish-girl it is! Pinterest has been ah-mazing for party planning, not only because I’ve found some great ideas there, but because it has given me an amazing way to keep everything organized and together. Seriously. If you’re not on Pinterest, you need to be. I’ll happily send you an invite, just ask!
So, here are some of the party-goods I’ve pinned…
Every party starts with a great invite. These invites from Embellished Paper on Etsy are perfect! I’m pretty sure I can pull off something similar, using this as inspiration.
Sadly, the original home of this image can’t be found, but it is PERFECT! It’s way larger than what we need, but my daughter has never been known to want things small, and since my sister is making it, we’re letting her have a three-tier cake. Crazy, I know. Everyone can have cake at the party, take cake home and we’ll probably feed the neighborhood too.
I found quite a few elements on DisneyFamily that I want to use. These necklaces are cute and will serve as inexpensive party favors.
Ariel’s Crown is another craft from DisneyFamily that I’m debating. The girls will love it, I’m sure, but I don’t know if I want to mess with the glitter, etc… Still, super cute!
I found these last night on DisneyFamilyFun and I can not not make these. Just can’t! They are too cute and too EASY to skip. We will probably use pearlized fondant balls as the pearls.
These are on my maybe list too. First Palette has instructions for these little jelly fish bowl crafts and I thought they might be fun to hang from the ceiling to go with the whole ‘under the sea’ theme of The Little Mermaid. What do you think of them?
And, you can’t have a Little Mermaid party without Sebastian. This felt Sebastian, another one from DisneyFamily, will be perfect to go along with our table setting. I need to find a fishing net too…
I still need to find Flounder and some games for the kids, and I’m all ears for any other ideas you have as well! Share with me, please!
