Little Mermaid: Under the Sea Adventure

To date, this party is the one I get the most questions and inquiries about.  It has been featured on Hostess with the Mostess, Catch my Party, Sweet City Candy, Sweetly Chic Event, and a few others.  Almost a year later, but I finally have a blog to put it in 🙂

My two year old beyond loves The Little Mermaid and everything about Ariel’s life under the sea as a mermaid so the focus of my party was just that: Ariel’s mermaid life under the sea.

I tried to create an under the sea environment with all the sea life and treasures that the little mermaid would find.  For the guests’ tables, I included candelabras holding sunken utensil treasures just like seen in the movie. I also included other items shown in the movie as part of Ariel’s collection such as mini filled treasure chests, seashells, nets, and non-lit candles.

Flowers with splashing mermaid fins completed the look.

For hanging decorations, I created “jellyfish” lanterns and streamed large pieces of tulle from one end to another.

Dessert Table:  The dessert table was filled with edible sea creatures and treasures: octo-pops (marshmallows), crab slices (orange slices), clams (macarons), sand dollars (cookies), sunken coins (chocolate), sand (sugar candy), seaweed (sour strips), sea pearls (gumballs) sea water (jello). I used “sand” (brown sugar) to fill all the platters.

The incredible cake filled with edible ocean life gave it the final touch.

Welcome Table: One of my daughter’s favorite songs is “Kiss the Girl” so I was able to recreate a small piece of that scene for her by placing her Ariel and Eric dolls in a small canoe.  The table was filled with lots of mermaid and ocean goodies.  All the kids enjoyed coming in and filling their goody bags with all the favors.

Food and Drinks:  With a theme such as Under the Sea it was so easy to create a delicious seafood menu along with thematic but non-seafood items.  Menu included Peanut Butter and “Jellyfish” sandwiches, Tuna Pasta Salad, Seaweed (spinach) dip, Pasta Shells and Cheese, Shrimp cocktail, Scallops wrapped in bacon, and Seaweed (basil) skewers.

We also made a tropical punch that was a big hit with all our guests.

    So cute! It looks like on the goody table there are flip flops…where did you get those? Along with the mirrors and sun glasses? Also, would love to know where you got the mermaid tale that is coming out of the centerpiece arrangements. Thanks!
