How To Plan A Themed Mermaid Birthday Party
Mermaid Party Decorations:
Mermaids are imaginary fantasy underwater creatures known to have the prettiest purple, pink, green and teal shades.
In this case, you want kids to feel like they are stepping into an underwater dream where they can instantly feel like a mermaid.
Pink, lavender, turquoise and other pastel shades should be your choice of color when decorating a themed underwater mermaid birthday party for kids.
You can also use this opportunity as a bonding time with your kids and make DIY mermaid decorations, lots of ideas on Pinterest.
Don’t be shy about adding more decorations. Everything will be on the theme as long as you stick to the rights colors.
To make this a success, stick to mermaid disposable plates, garlands, cupcake holders and toppers, mermaid cups, and pastel straws and mermaid pinatas.
All of these create the tone so once kids step into the scene, they get into a festive mood immediately because kids get bored quickly.
