Nothing brings any little girl’s imagination to life faster than a mermaid party. The right setting will have her dreaming about being a princess who lives under the sea! This ongoing collection of mermaid party ideas is designed to inspire you to create an enchanting party of your own! Enjoy!
PASTEL MERMAID PARTY
Traditionally a pastel mermaid party uses lots of white and pastel shades of blue, aqua, pink, and lavender. It’s the ultimate choice for any little girl who dreams of swimming through the waves like a fish! In this party inspiration, aqua frosting creates ocean waves on top of cupcakes adorned with fish fins and a pastel rainbow of sprinkles. The stylist, Johanny from Creative Touch has used fresh live coordinated flowers in white vases to fill the food table with girlish delight!
A colourful backdrop is as simple as a pastel balloon garland with your little mermaid’s name in the centre of the feature wall or a happy birthday message if the occasion allows. Use a range of balloon types and sizes to create a colourful focus that stands out from the time your guests enter the door. Don’t be afraid to insert some confetti or jumbo balloons into the mix to make a bold accent for the pastel colours.
Delicious confections include cakes with pretty details like lavender seaweed and shimmering starfish. Everything reflects the same feeling of serenity and sweetness that you’d expect a mermaid party to have.
When partyware can be used as part of the decor then it saves a whole lot of hassle. This party would work beautifully with iridescent pastel partyware. It matches the sorbet confectionery and offers plates, cups and napkins that shimmer like a mermaid’s scales!
LUXE MERMAID PARTY
How sweet and elegant is this luxe mermaid birthday party! Styled by Dream A Little Dream this magical party is full of amazing styling ideas that are sure to get you excited. From the beautiful handmade decorations and pretty desserts to the gold partyware and cute mermaid cake.
Dream A Little Dream explains: We loved styling this one. Our client brief was to stay away from any of the typical purples and aquas usually seen in Mermaid parties and no Disney elements what-so-ever! It had to be pretty and different.
Inspired by seaweed, coral and vintage Mermaid illustrations this party involved alot of handmade decor. Chiffon was cut to look like seaweed and handmade Jelly Fish hung from the ceiling with ruffled tentacles. Nautilus shells were filled with fresh blooms and hand wrapped chocolates in glass treasure chests graced the table along with other sweet morsels such as Seahorse Jelly Cups. There was even a mermaid tail balloon sculpture and bubble balloons on the walls.
GOLD & MINT MERMAID PARTY
Illume Partyware loves gold and mint for a mermaid party. Not only do they look magical together the mint green reflects the beauty of the sea while gold makes a stunning accent that reminds everyone of the glittery scales on a mermaid’s tail!
With a clever colour combination you can mix and match decorations and decor until it’s layered to your liking. Here our designer and stylist, Louise Lazendic mixed up gold & mint dots with napkins, cups, and straws featuring stripes in the same great gold and mint colours.
Add a touch of sophistication to your little girl’s gold & mint mermaid party while also adding to the fun. Gold forks and spoons, happy birthday cake toppers, and a gold star garland are just some of the ways to pick up gold accents. Add mint green to cookies, cakes and desserts while a simple scatter of colour coordinated starfish and seashells around the table keeps the theme alive.
UNDER THE SEA MERMAID PARTY
One reason all little girls love mermaids is their magical home under the sea. The ocean holds so many mysteries for us. Mermaids swim among the beauty and every other creature that calls the sea its home! This mystical mermaid party styled by Ivy and Bleu for her daughter’s birthday is filled with everything you can find for mermaid party inspiration!
An under the sea mermaid party relies on shades of aqua, lavender, white, and pink to create a mystical underwater setting. Beautiful lilac and white blooms give the illusion of an underwater scene. The aqua chairs surround the table with the colour of the sea. The white tablecloth and confections have details that look like a fish’s scales. Of course, your little girl won’t see anything but the mermaid’s tail on top!
Simple, elegant iridescent tableware complements this detailed party perfectly. Think of accenting the setting with matching balloons and flowers without overdoing the colours. A lot of white and a lot of shimmer help create the illusion of being many fathoms below the waves.
FLORAL PASTEL MERMAID PARTY
The floral pastel mermaid party is the perfect balance of feminine colours and magical underwater details. The ambience you create will give any little girl another reason to love mermaid parties.
Unlike some of the other mermaid party themes, this one styled by Johanny Merejo of Creative Touch features a soft pastel colour palette in delicate tones and intricate details and that are just mesmerizing.
A selection of live fragrant blooms match the other colourful features and everywhere you look there are glimpses of seahorses, shells, pearls, mermaids, starfish and snails; some edible and others purely for decoration.
Gold touches are used throughout to mimic the reflection of sunlight in the mermaid’s underwater world. The end result is a magical underwater setting that makes everyone feel like a magical creature for the day!
