“Always be YOURSELF, unless you can be a mermaid, then be a mermaid.”
For Luca’s 7th birthday she put on her mermaid costume (fin and all) and took her friends on a mystical underwater adventure to go and play with Mermaids. Mommy Marlize did all the planning and styling and turned their home into a magical coral reef with soft pastel colours. There was a beautiful bubbly balloon garland over the dessert table and lots of fun coral and seashell details – you can even spot a fish or two. We love that she used white and clear plinths in different heights to display the cakes and treats and how adorable are the little mermaid gift bags from MRP Home?
Instead of one big 2-tier cake, there were two smaller cakes with completely different looks, but that complimented each other perfectly with some ocean elements. The girls enjoyed all the delicious treats and couldn’t believe that the pearls were actually cake pops! The dessert table was also filled with cinnamon donuts, rice krispie treats, macaroons, chocolate covered strawberries and some wobbly jelly cups.
If your little girl loves the ocean and all it’s magic, then the Mermaid theme is definitely one to consider for her next birthday party!
