Setting up your mermaid party
Start planning your mermaid party by picking up all the essentials like plates, cups, napkins and tablecloths.
We LOVE using iridescent party supplies for this theme because the shimmer and shine will almost make it look like your party is underwater!
Here’s a quick checklist of all the basic party supplies you’ll need:
- Plates (we love these iridescent plates)
- Cups (try these cute iridescent cups)
- Napkins (we love these colourful iridescent napkins and these half white/half silver napkins – why not have both?
- Straws (how about these silver iridescent ones?)
- Tablecloths (a white tablecloth like this would be perfect for this theme)
- Table confetti (how about this iridescent confetti?)
Next, get decorating! One of our favourite mermaid party decorations is this free printable shell bunting.
Simply print it out and cover each shell in this iridescent gift wrap that will give it a lovely underwater shine. Then stick the shells to a long piece of ribbon and hang it along the wall of your party venue!
This mermaid balloon is an absolute must! Blow it up with helium and use it as a focal point for your decorations!
Balloons will also add to your cute underwater look! Make sure you choose latex balloons with a pearl effect like these pink and blue ones, then mix and match them with some clear latex balloons like these.
Next up is party food! Not everything has to be on theme but it’ll make your buffet more fun if you have a couple of easy mermaid themed snacks.
Here are a couple of our favourite mermaid party food ideas:
Last but not least, send your guests home with a cute mermaid party bag filled with treats! We used these stunning iridescent party bags and decorated them with a mermaid tail and a shell gift tag (both are free to download!)
