Mermaid Party Ideas

Audrey turned eight last month and decided to have a mermaid party.  Evan didn’t want a themed party this year, but since his party was the same day, we decided to add a pirate theme into the party as well.  I had so much fun putting this party together, and I’ve got a lot of free printables and Silhouette cut files for you to use.  Hope you enjoy all of these mermaid party ideas.  Make sure you also check out these 40+ adorable mermaid crafts!

I had some leftover decorations from a nautical baby shower that I threw, so I used those to decorate the table.  It’s just a net with shells and glass balls on it.  You can get these things at the craft store.

I used green streamers to create “seaweed” on the walls.

I saw this idea for an octopus out of a balloon and streamers.  Not sure where the original idea came from, but it was really easy to make.  Just pin a balloon to the ceiling and tape some paper eyes and streamer legs to it.
