Mermaid Birthday Party

Warm weather is upon us (well it is for us Texans) so I thought it was time for a Mermaid Party design make-over.

I’ve updated and added some new designs to my party pack. Also a special cookie fanatic friend of mine made some adorable cookies to match!

Mermaid Party Updates

Each Mermaid Party Pack now comes with 11 digital files (6 are brand new!). Plus, the invitations are customizable so you can add your own party information yourself before you print!

Mermaid Party Invitation


Choose from four different mermaids to find one that looks like your party girl.


My daughter STILL talks about her party that was several years ago! We might have to do another mermaid party this summer just for fun.

Seahorse Cookies

I’m so excited about these adorable cookies Bridget from Bake at 350 made of my seahorses! How cute are these? I gasped when I opened my email from her and saw her photos:-)

Seahorse Sugar Cookies for Mermaid Party

I simply designed a template for her and she performed her cookie magic! You can download the template for FREE, then head over to her blog for detailed directions on how to make them. Or, if you’re like me… you’ll drool over her detailed photos, then plan to give this template to a person who can make the cookies for you! ha.

  4. Being from Australia, my favourtie beaches are all on the fantastic sunset west coast, near my hometown of Perth! The most favourite one, is a place called Mettam’s Pool, which is a natural lagoon, so really safe for the little ones to play in the gentle waves, and a brilliant cafe almost across the road for coffee’s and milkshakes after a swim adn a play in the sand!

  5. Hi! Gosh you have a ton of comments, I hope this doesn’t get lost! I just wanted to say that your mermaid party was a huge inspiration for me. I modeled my daughter’s 2nd birthday after it and it was a HUGE hit. Moms are still telling me about their girls wearing mermaid skirts. I incorporated Ariel into it and made the skirts green. For the boys I made “Sebastian hands” out of felt sewn with embroidery floss and turned out…too bad none of the boys wore them for more than 30 seconds lol! I was so glad to find your blog and get (steal) so many great ideas…my house looked so cute with chinese lantern bubbles, pink flowing “kelp” hanging from the ceiling, pearls hanging from the chandelier and a silver “waterfall’ back drop for the b-day girl! Keep up the great work and thank you again!!!
