Little Mermaid and Under the Sea inspired party
These picture are from my daughters 4th Birthday party from last summer~ An Under the Sea Birthday Party. I shared this post last summer over at The Preppy Strawberry in June but wanted to share the party with all of my Lillian Aerin & Co readers.
Under the Sea Party
To create my under the sea theme I used blue balloons and white balloons and taped them to the ceiling and the walls. Along with the balloons I hung green crepe paper down for the sea algae and then across the ceiling I twisted two different colors of blue together to create the water look.
My centerpieces were glass vases from the dollar store and I put swim goggles around the vase. I filled the glasses up with water then added blue food coloring. In between the vases I had little fish dishes and filled them with gold fish crackers!
The mermaid cake I did by hand - see pictures below of how I cut it out. We had a little miss hap when icing it because Lilly wanted to help. So I gave in and let her help but when she was putting the M&M's on the tail she pushed a little too hard and we lost the tail! Oh well nothing a few toothpicks and some more icing can't fill in! ;)
before the icing
Singing happy birthday with her cousins and friends. - She wasn't looking at me because everyone else was taking a picture! Poor kid didn't know where to look! ;)
Happy Birthday - this picture was taken on her actual birthday!
My baby is four!
