Mermaid Birthday Party

Mermaid Birthday Party

2018 was the year of all things mermaid in our house, so it only made sense for Harper to have a Mermaid themed 4th birthday party. I'll share some photos below of how I put together an adorably sweet under the sea Mermaid Birthday Party, including: whimsical decor, a treasure chest craft / party favor, and a DIY (with help from etsy ;) ) cake.

So they obviously became a major element in her birthday party, appearing both on the top of her sprinkle smash cake as well as on the birthday parade fabric I bought to use as a ...

Oh, baby, baby, you're a wild ONE! I instantly fell in love with the idea of a "Wild One" first birthday party; however, we turned the fun factor up a notch by making it a "Party Animal" theme! I've had a disappointing track record when ordering birthday cakes that just don't come out how I've imagined them, so I opted to make made a simple blue smash cake ...
