Mermaid parties are a perennial birthday party theme, and there are so many ways to decorate with this theme. This gorgeous party styled by M& J Kreations features shimmering pastels, lush, cascading florals, gold accents, and plenty of mermaid treasures. We have tons of pictures to share with you for your mermaid party inspiration.
Under the Sea
The dessert table is always the centerpiece of an M & J Kreation party, and this celebration is no exception. From the balloon backdrop that reminds you of bubbles to the cascading greenery that is reminiscent of seaweed, this dessert table is perfectly on theme and a showstopper.
Look at these treats! There is no detail forgotten. Every item has multiple candy sea creature details, gorgeous gold hand-painted accents, and lots of sugary pearls that add to the underwater feel. An impactful detail is the use of light brown sugar on the dessert trays to make it look like sand! That’s an easy trick to elevate your DIY at home party.
Easy Custom Treat Inspiration
Another detail that’s easy to do at home is to use candy molds for all the fun sea creatures and seashells. Use store-bought treats, add a couple of candies and you just made custom mermaid party treats! Try it on cakes, cupcakes, macarons, rice Krispy treats, or sugar cookies.
Stella sure is one lucky little girl to have such a beautiful celebration! A waterfront party venue adds even more to the theme. Even if you can’t host your party seaside, you can undoubtedly deck out your tables in watery shades of blue, with clear, bubble-like accents. Adding faux stems of coral to your flower arrangements help tie them into the mermaid party theme as well–even if you buy grocery store flowers (like I do!).
Mermaid Party Inspiration: It’s all in the details
Of course, not every party I throw at home may be professional party planner quality (at least until I hit the lottery!). But with just a few well-placed details (like our newest watercolor invitations), my DIY parties can feel extra-special and elevated.
