Summer is here and it’s time to shellebrate! If you are looking for a summer theme to celebrate someone’s special birthday, opt for a Mermaid birthday party. From an eye-catching balloon cake topper for your mermaid inspired cake to adorable clam shell cookies, these easy diy ideas will make waves at your mermaid themed party!
Set the tone for your event with a darling mermaid themed invitation design that will get your guests excited to party with you even if it’s from distance.
As a birthday cake idea, you can order a simple mermaid inspired buttercream cake and jazz it up with a DIY balloon topper. I used 5” white and clear balloons to mimic bubbles.
No birthday party is complete without coordinating cookies. These adorable mermaid cookies were designed to perfectly match the invitation design. You can drop off a sweet treat for your virtual guests at their front door as a thank you for participating.
Cupcakes are mandatory at every party! For a pretty presentation, coordinating cups and mini flags can add such a cute touch. Your family will love them!
It’s your child’s first birthday party and she can’t have guests over, but it doesn’t mean she can’t enjoy a festive party tablescape.
To match the birthday party color palette, incorporate fun paper partyware. This mint green party collection with details in gold foil by Paper Eskimo is absolutely beautiful and so versatile. You can layer plates in two different sizes to add texture to your tablescape and complement them with matching cups, straws, napkins and pillow boxes.
To finish the look of your tablescape, incorporate an Under the Sea inspired felt garland and a few mini clear balloons scattered on the table.
Get the birthday girl (and family) involved with a fun edible craft – DIY clam shell cookies!
What you will need for the DIY clam shell cookies:
- Mini store bought shortbread cookies
- Frosting in a piping bag with a decorating tip
- Candy pearls
Step 1: Pipe frosting onto one cookie.
Step 2: Add a candy pearl.
Step 3: Gently place another cookie on top to create a clam shell.
How cute do they look?
I hope you enjoy recreating these easy and fun ideas for your next Mermaid Party!
