Cute Mermaid Birthday Party Ideas, Printables, Scrapbook Supplies by Amy Locurto

My baby girl wanted a Mermaid Birthday Party.

Here is what she got…. I hope you enjoy these fun ideas from my daughter’s Mermaid Party!

**Exciting Update!** My mermaid designs were turned into super cute party and scrapbook products! You can buy them here.

I had the best time drawing her as a mermaid for the invitation!

Her name was on the invite, I just put “girl” on here for the blog. I designed this invite especially for my daughter (this design is not for sale), but I do have a really cute version of it which is available in my shop. You can customize it with your own party details before printing too!

Mermaid Party Table & Food Ideas

I didn’t go crazy on the decorations as I wanted something simple and easy because I put all of my time into the food and crafts. The backdrop was sheer sparkly fabric and a few balloons. I wanted a feeling of being under the water.

I think these cupcake toppers took a lot longer to design than to make the sandy beach cupcakes! I now have the Mermaid designs for sale in my shop.

The food was sushi sandwiches, brownie bombs, brownie starfish pops, goldfish crackers, fruit, pizza and blue Gatorade.

Little Mermaids

The guests were three little girls, their siblings and one little boy (her boyfriend!).

I made these easy no sew mermaid tails for the girls. I didn’t realize how tall they all were compared to my girl! So some were way shorter than they should have been. You can see directions on how to make these at the bottom of this post. Of course, each mermaid got a crown too!

We had lots of fun and games!

Pin the crown on Ariel (which even the older brothers wanted to do), an under the sea treasure hunt and the older siblings had a blast in the dance contest! Oh my… there were some moves going on that should have been outlawed!! LOL! And of course opening presents at the end was a big highlight!

Taking photos as a mermaid was a hit, even with a few boys!!

I bought a large blue foam core board and spray glued a large cut-out of my mermaid drawing. I cropped in close so you couldn’t see their hands holding the board.

Mermaid Decor & Goodies

I found cute Ariel lunch boxes half-off at the Disney Store and filled them up for goodie bags. The boys all got Sponge Bob cups filled with pirate goodies.

Centerpieces were big cut-outs on silver chargers with pearls and shells surrounding them. I also had a table with a treasure chest and more food, but didn’t get photos.

DIY Ideas for a Mermaid Party

How to make a no sew mermaid tail.

Party Craft Idea- No Sew Mermaid Tail - Living Locurto

I am not a sewer, so I didn’t do any particular measuring. The best advice I can give on how to make these yourself is to measure your little mermaid’s waist then add some extra fabric for wrapping. Also measure from her waist to the floor for the length.

For more instructions on how to make the mermaid tails, visit this updated post about it here.


Sushi Sandwiches

Roll cheddar cheese, cucumbers, cream cheese and turkey up in a piece of white bread. I also added mustard to some.
