Mermaids, unicorns, pineapples! Oh my! This year for my daughter’s 8th birthday we went on a shopping trip to where else – Fancy That! I let her pick out some supplies for her party – and when you’re the birthday girl you can pick out whatever you want! She chose to mix and match, because it’s hard to choose just one thing when everything is so cute!
What’s the most important thing at a party? The cake! Or cupcakes in this case. We used Meri Meri’s adorable Mermaid Cupcake Kit to make chocolate cupcakes with blue frosting and “sand.” To create these cute cupcakes I added blue food coloring to the frosting. Once the cupcakes were frosted I dipped half of them in the “sand” (crushed graham crackers), and added the adorable toppers! Oh and I can’t forget the number 8 sparkler candle!
Plates and napkins are also a must at any party! My sweetie chose the Unicorn & Rainbow plates and some super fun pineapple napkins.
Fancy That’s signature sixlet favors were a huge hit with the party girls!
To make the party a little more festive, I made some seaweed to place around the room. To make the seaweed I used some of our mint green tissue paper. I folded a few sheets in half and cut strips almost up to the fold (careful not to cut through the fold).
Are you loving the mythical creature trend as much as we are?!
