Last updated: February 10, 2023

Celebrate your little mermaid’s birthday with a oh, so pretty mermaid themed party. The Little Mermaid and her talking sea creature friends have been a girly favorite since the days of its conception. The brilliant Hans Christian Anderson brought to life a warm and inviting character that all little girls often dreamed they could be – all the way back in 1837, 150 years before Disney turned it into a movie. Here’s How To Throw A Mermaid Themed Party for your water baby:

1) An Underwater Color Scheme

The ocean is full of beautiful colors so the options are endless! We particularly love a pink, purple and blue hued aesthetic, with pops of metallic in between! You can literally make it Mermaid Anything – mermaid picnic party, mermaid boho, mermaid and unicorns even. Check out some great combo themes at Kara’s Party Ideas.

2) Seawater Cake

(That hopefully doesn’t taste like it!)
Well, with our professional cake masters, we know that your cake will be as delish as it is good to look at! Some inspo for your mermaid or seawater cake can include lovely ombre effects to replicate the rolling waves like this creation by Martin Samiento. Or head to Sweet n Saucy Shop for stunning sponged delights.
