Party Recap

A lover of all things Disney Princess, my little one asked for a Ariel party - which transformed into a Mermaid themed party.


Party Highlights

  • Desserts

    The dessert table is one of my favorite aspects to a party. Guests enjoyed s'mores on a stick, cupcakes, my Mother-in-law's fabulous peanut butter finger dessert bars and various goodies to snack on; salt water taffy, gumballs, sixlets and stick pops.

  • Party Favors

    Both boys and girls were adorned with custom made, glittery "Sea Crowns" and were given treat bags filled with lots of goodies.

  • Activities / Games

    With all of the DIY inspiration on pinterest, I have always wanted to make my own pinata - using a family recipe for paper mache, I carefully sculpted my very first pinata. After several layers of mache, I made tissue paper flowers to adhere to the outside layer for decoration. I plan on making these for all of our future parties - but with less layers as this one was practically indestructible.

  • Funniest Moment

    My little one loved blowing out her candles that she demanded we do it over and over again. After the third time of watching my little girl hold a fiery cupcake in her hands (note to self, do not let a child hold fire in her hands), we quickly distracted her with the promise of opening her many presents.

  • What People Drank

    Guests enjoyed Pink lemonade served with freshly sliced lemons, water and beer | wine for the adults.

    Note to self: Hire photographer even if it is your profession. Between preparing meals, entertaining guests and activities, I was not able to capture the photographs to do this party justice.http://ModernHeirloomPhotography.com
