B and D's Mermaid Bash

We celebrated D's 4th and B's 8th birthdays over the weekend.  It was B's Biggie Birthday as she turned 8 on the 8th!  The girls wanted a Mermaid party and we had a lot of fun pulling it off.

We had a Face Painter come which was super fun!

 We had a Bounce House that took up half our yard!

And of course, a rainbow fish pinata

I had a lot of fun coming up with the decorations, party favors and the menu.  Pinterest is amazing!

 Mermaid Punch

We had two types of Mermaid punch.  In this photo we are still filling the right side right before the party.  The punch on the left was a blue color while the the punch on the right side had a greener blue color.

You can see what I mean here.

The Blue Punch on the left was a mixture of blue Hawaiian punch and 7-up while the lighter version on the right was a mixture of blue Hawaiian punch and lemonade.

Mermaid Silverware

Rachel over at Bubbly Nature Creations had a pretty sweet Mermaid party awhile ago and was kind enough to let me use her wonderful Mermaid graphic.  David changed up the hair so that we would have a blond version for B and a brunette version for D.  And then my friend (aka The Cookie Master) made party circles for me!  I used these circles on the silverware and accents pretty much everywhere.

Starfish Wands Party Favors

All our guests left with bags of candy (from the pinata), their faces painted (if they wanted), and these fun starfish wands that the girls helped me make.  The party was a huge success and I am so thankful to everyone who came and contributed in some form or fashion!
