My daughter loves mermaids and wanted to have another mermaid party for her birthday this year. Since this was her second mermaid party I wanted it to be magical so we used glitter and gold to add an extra special touch.
We served "mermaid potion" that sat beside a sign that told you that it would turn you into a mermaid if you drank it. The potion bottles were wrapped with shiny gold ribbon and had sparkly gold tags that said "mermaid potion."
My daughter wanted me to make a sign that says "Believe in Mermaids" because she does & wants everyone else to believe too. I also made some 5x7 signs that said "Just keep swimming," Forever a Mermaid" and "Advice from a Mermaid." I decorated the tables with these signs.
We had fresh cotton candy and concession stand buttery popcorn made when guests arrived (thanks to my oldest daughter and her friends.) Guests were greeted with "Mermaids Welcome" decals on the front door with mermaids, shells and sea horses.
After several weeks of planning and watching the weather, I decided to rent a bounce house for the kids. Unfortunately, an hour before the party began, it started raining and raining. I had to rush to get everything inside, dried off and set up indoors and had to come up with "Plan B." We ended up having an indoor dance party in my daughter's room and games set up in my living room for the older kids.
Everyone had a great time even without the bounce house :)
