Little Mermaid/Under the Sea Kids Party

Hi Again. On my last blog, I said I would write about throwing a kick butt kids Party. Today I will tell you from start to finish how to organize an Under the Sea or Little Mermaid Party. THis was such a fun party and my little mermaid loved it!

 

Food is the ever essential item at any party. I will be listing below the food that I served and the theme related name.

 

  1. Tortellini Pasta salad- This is the dish I make at every party. The closest thing I could come up with was “Scallops”.
  2. Spinach Artichoke dip- Seaweed Dip
  3. Carrot Sticks- Crab Legs
  4. White cheese cut in triangles- Shark Teeth
  5. Strawberries and grapes- Berried Treasure
  6. Sliced Cucumbers- Sea Cucumbers
  7. We also added some chic fil a chicken tenders, what party in not complete without it.
  8. Homemade cupcakes topped with Homemade chocolate seashells.

 

Then the ever so popular Candy Bar, which I had much fun with. I tried to stay in the Blue/White theme wherever I could.

 

  1. White and light blue Rock Candy on a stick- Rock Coral Candy
  2. White bubble gum Balls- Ocean Pearls
  3. Gummy Worms- Fish bait
  4. Swedish FIsh- (Individual packs from Amazon) Shark Bait
  5. Shark gummies- Sharks ( I know, not too original)
  6. Goldfish crackers- goldfish ( again- original)
  7. Chocolate covered Pretzels
  8. Sour Green strips-Sour Seaweed
  9. Blue and white swirled lollipops.
  10. Handmade chocolate shells
  11. Blue Jelly Bellies

 

Fun activities-

 

  1. Message in a bottle- I bought a cute purple bottle with a snap lid, and had little papers to write a birthday wish to the Little Mermaid Birthday GIrl.
  2. To keep in the theme of under the sea, we got a big blow-up waterslide that the kids had great summer fun in.
  3. I purchased a big oval bucket from target, then some fishing poles from the dollar store. Plastic fish from Amazon along with some magnets that I added to the end of the string on the fishing pole and on the fish, for a wonderful and easy game of fishing for the little ones. Everyone one had to fish for their lunch that day.

 

Decorations

  1. Colorful Tablecloths to Mimic the colors under the sea- I also purchased nets to cover the tables for a nautical look
  2. We created a large frame with the words “Happy Birthday” this was a big hit with getting everyone to take pictures.
  3. We made a great Backdrop out of streamers to mimic water, with a great banner wishing the birthday Mermaid “Happy Birthday”
  4. I also purchased those round paper lanterns at the dollar store- I made jelly fish with those lanterns with string and streamers hanging from the bottom. (In one of my next blogs, I will show you step by step how to make them.)

 

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed and got at least one new idea for your Under the sea party.
