Mila’s Mermaid Under the Sea Birthday Party

Today was Mila’s third birthday party and I have been looking forward to it for so long. She is obsessed with mermaids lately so I immediately knew I wanted to throw her a mermaid under the sea birthday party. It features a few handmade items from Etsy, and the rest of the items are from Target and Amazon. It was all done a tight budget and was so much fun to put together!

The “Mila turns three” banner is from Hooray Everyday. And the letter balloons with the tassel garland hanging above, are both from Love Garlands.


These clamshell cookies were so simple! You take vanilla wafers, fill them with frosting, and place a white m&m or any other white circular candy inside.


The cake stand is from Target and the sea shell rings were bought on Amazon.


I filled the jars with rock candy found on Amazon. We had blue “mermaid” punch which was just blue gatorade with Swedish Fish. And some candy bracelets for the little mermaids at the party. The cute little mermaid tail cups and scalloped napkins are from Target.

I had such a fun time coming up with this dessert table, and it was such a special day with family and friends, for our little mermaid!

    How did you get those balloons to stay up like that? I want to do the same thing!

      I taped them with clear packing tape. I just rolled it up and put it behind them so you couldnt see it!
