{Mermaid Party} Ribbon Chandelier Tutorial

17 September 2014



When I saw this Ribbon Chandelier on Catch My Party a little ago, I knew this was going to make the perfect decoration for Chloe's Mermaid Party.


This is such a simple project !
And it looks absolutely amazing, especially outside when it's floating in the wind...


I found the selection of purple, aqua and blue ribbons and lace at Jo Ann's and Michael's.
I used two white pearl necklaces from Birthday Express to suspend the chandelier.

A metal ring or embroidery hoop, which you can spray paint to match your color scheme.
Glue Gun
Scissors


How to:


Start by hot gluing the 2 pearl necklaces to the ring.


Then simply cut a length of ribbon, fold the end over the ring, secure with hot glue.
Repeat, cutting each ribbon a slightly different length and alternating ribbon colors and style until you have gone round the whole ring.

Suspend and admire your beautiful creation !

{Mermaid Party} DIY Mermaids Welcome sign

11 September 2014



As you know from Monday's post, I got some gorgeous Mermaids Under The Sea Giant Wall Decals from Birthday Express. Well, one of the stickers read "Mermaids welcome" so I knew I had to use it to create a cute sign to welcome our guests.

I used a piece of wood I already had and painted it white. When it was dried I distressed the edges and corners with sand paper.
Applying the sticker was super easy, even on my own, and not only did it stay stuck on the board for over two weeks, it came off without damaging the paint after the party !! So definitely a bonus if you are thinking of using it on your walls...


I used the two sea star stickers from the wall decal assortment and added some glittered sea shells (from Michael's) to embellish. I also had a few shell necklaces from a previous trip (!) which I hanged on the sign too.

There you go! It was easy and quick to make and it looked beautiful when finished.

{Mermaid Party} Cake Inspiration

9 September 2014

There are so many amazing Mermaid cakes out there, but here are a few of my favorites :)
I love the soft purple and aqua colours that would match my party palette perfectly !!!









New party theme: A Mermaid Party !!!

8 September 2014

One of my daughter Chloe's favorite characters is Ariel, the Little Mermaid. So it was no surprise when she requested a mermaid party for her 5th Birthday...
Since I wasn't too keen on the idea of a character birthday, we settled on a mermaid theme but with no obvious reference to Ariel.


I was very fortunate to be contacted by the lovely people at Birthday Express right when I started planning this party because they carry the perfect party range for this birthday !
A beautiful mermaid silhouette range in shades of purple, blues and aqua !!
I was thrilled to discover it :)


I received their Ultimate party in a box package with favors, and let me tell you, it's got everything one needs for a party and more !!!

I got all the usual partyware of course (plates, cutlery, cups, table covers, balloons) but on top of that they sent me a gorgeous Piñata kit (with sweets and favors), party favor boxes and favors, a personalized banner,



and the best were the amazing Giant wall stickers !!! From the start I knew I would be using the mermaid silhouette sticker as the dessert table backdrop...


You can discover the whole Mermaids Under The Sea range here.
