Party Recap

We chose a mermaid theme due to the way that Hannah learned to crawl - at 4 months old she looked like she was "swimming" and the nickname "Little Mermaid" stuck.

The table cloth and bunting were made by my mother. The "Octopus" centerpiece is an old chandelier that we spray painted and placed cake plates on.

    Hi Rebecca! Thank you for your sweet comments. The tissue paper garlands were purchased online through www.karaspartyideas.com - if you click on "shop" then "decorations by color" you can easily find them. They are listed as "decorating kits" and are only $10.97 each. I purchase all of my party products through this site, as well as Shop Sweet Lulu, and The Cupcake Social. Happy party planning!

    I love the fishnet with the pictures. I am having a Pirate birthday party for my son who turns 2 in August and would like to do something similar. How did you make the pictures hold to the fish net?
