Under the Sea Birthday Party

Under the Sea / Little Mermaid Birthday Party for Girl

Colorful Pink, Purple, and Turquoise Children’s Party

When you have a child whose fondness lies greatest with princesses, specifically mermaid (or muh-maid, as this sweet child likes to call them) princesses, an Under the Sea birthday party theme makes for an obvious choice for a fun outdoor party! Like most children’s birthday parties, although these specific pictures capture the theme for a little girl, with a few tweaks (minus a few princesses), the ideas behind this party could work just as well for a boy’s birthday party.

Being surrounded by a group of girl friends that excel in DIY, party planning, and coming up with super creative ideas, I knew that once the babies started coming, each year would be filled with a new and exciting children’s party theme.

This Under the Sea birthday party took place poolside at a beach house near the gulf. My very creative and crafty friend had been working on the party for weeks (ok, probably months!) in advance. The party was filled with several DIY decor projects including an “oyster” portrait station, festive wreath, and hanging jellyfish. Letting the theme continue throughout the food table, my favorite additions included the shark shaped watermelon and color candy bar sure to delight any child (or adult!).
