In the grand scheme of things, balloons have come a long way.  Take these impressive balloon displays for example, they are show stoppers and can be used in a variety of ways...behind a table, around a door, photo opt, etc.  Everything comes in a kit and you simply follow the instructions provided.

When it comes to arranging centerpieces, there is strength in numbers and variety.  Kids love to see things they are familiar with, so be sure to incorporate their favorite sea creatures.  Not all tables have to be decorated exactly the same, but keep the ocean vibe going throughout.

Layering in fishy design elements should make some waves.  Take fish nets for example, draped over tables or hung on a wall, they are especially fitting as mermaid decor for birthday party.


When it comes to kids birthday parties, garlands are a must.  Take a look at these unique garlands that demand to be seen wherever they're placed...backdrop for gift or food tables, part of a photo scene, or hung up just because they're pretty.

Never under estimate the power of a playful yard sign.  As soon as the kids see it, their excitement soars and Moms love knowing they're in the right place.

Mermaid birthday party games.

Games and activities are a big part of our mermaid birthday party ideas.  And when entertaining kids, plan a combination of lively and quiet games.  Here are some our favorite game ideas to get you started...

Instant fun.

Mermaid tail sack race.

Looking for an outdoor birthday party game?  A sack race is as much fun to play as it is for the spectators to watch.  All you really need to play is a start line, finish line, and sacks or bags.  Take a look at these mermaid themed bags that keep the theme front and center.

A game of chance.
Scratch offs...

Toss game.

Mermaids will find a toss game far more appealing with a decorative target.  Adjusting the start line for younger players is a good way to keep the game fair for everyone.  

What's your mermaid name?

Seashell hunt.

This hide-and-seek game takes a bit of preparation, but it all pays off when guests arrive and it's time to play.  On your "go" command, players search for the seashells you hid before they arrived and the one who finds the most wins.

How many fish are in the sea?

For this game, you'll need a jar or fishbowl to fill with gummy fish, goldfish crackers, etc.  Count how many fish you put into the jar or fishbowl and write it down.  To play:  each player writes down their name and best guess as to how many fish are in the bowl.  The closest to the correct number wins.  These adorable cards and folding sign are the way to go...
