{Mermaid Party} Part 2 - Sand Art Activity

3 October 2014


For this girl only party I thought it would be great to have a craft activity, and what best than Sand Art for a Mermaid Party ?


I got all my Sand Art supplies at Oriental Trading, they have a fantastic selection of containers to fill and the Colorful Craft Sand Assortment was just perfect (we had more than enough sand and the colors were really nice and bright).
I ordered the Under The Sea Sand Art Bottles as the main activity since these containers are quite big, and also some small bottles that were quicker to fill (Dolphin key chains, Heart necklaces and Tropical fish necklaces).


Thanks to the online reviews, I was careful to order extra funnels. You definitely need one funnel per child if you want things to go smoothly !!

I was so pleasantly surprised at how well everybody did with filling their bottles ! Even our youngest guest who's only three managed to do it all on her own. I provided spoons for everybody and then with the funnels it was fairly easy to fill the bottles. They were enough colors to choose from so that nobody had to wait long for a color.
It was just the perfect activity for our group of girls !!



The weather was gorgeous that day so we were able to hold this activity outside, however it is definitely something that can be done inside too. I was expecting it to be messier but in fact it was OK! There was hardly any sand on the floor afterwards...
Just plan to cover your table with a plastic disposable cover and when they are finished, simply fold it and dispose of it.

Chloe's Mermaid Party

30 September 2014


We celebrated Chloe's 5th Birthday in style this year with a Mermaid Birthday Party.
It has to be one of the girliest parties I have styled so far and I loved it ! The color palette of Aqua, Blue and Purple was a delight to work with :)

I hope you will enjoy the pictures !



You can find a Ribbon Chandelier Tutorial here.

For activities, the girls enjoyed having their face painted and we also made Headbands decorated with tulle rosettes and glittered shells. This was a big success !



But our main craft was a Sand Art activity which I will be writing about in another post later this week.

{Mermaid Party} Ribbon Chandelier Tutorial

17 September 2014



When I saw this Ribbon Chandelier on Catch My Party a little while 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 !
