    Katie M - so glad you like my little Ali 's party . If you look under " my helpers " I listed all my vendors . This is the perfect time of year to hit up any Homegoods, tjmaxx, Marshall's or Ross because everything " sea /beach" is out for the summer . That is where I purchased a lot of the decor . They also sell cake stands as well . If you ads going to use my cookie and dessert venders I would contact Tiffany at Snickerdoodles sweets and events ASAP !!!! She books months in advance . Again I listed all my vendors . You just have to customize the colors . You can also send them pictures and they can work from that as well . Let me know If I can answer anymore questions :-) Laura

    Hello. I was carious about the mermaid cut out? Is this using a die cutting machine, such as the silouhoutte cameo? If it's ok to share would love to know the template of the mermaid cut out for my daughter's diy 1st party I'm planning. Thanks a bunch.
