Mermaid baby shower invitations

First things first, let’s talk invitations. This is the first thing your guests will see regarding the party so make it count! You may like the old fashion snail mail method and can order invitations from Amazon but you will have to hand write each and every name as well as the details. If it’s a smaller party it won’t take much time. You busy bees might not have time so head on over to Etsy and have a designer create them for you! You can order them printed, or have them send you an e-file to print yourself or use as an E-vite.

Mermaid baby shower food ideas

Most baby showers I have been to had more “snack foods” and not a full meal. This depends on the time of day you are hosting it. Regardless, this theme gives you some creative opportunity for mermaid themed food if you would like! It’s easier than you think. You might need to put labels on them so people understand but check out how easy this can be! For example:

The veggie tray can turn into an octopus. Easy!

Chicken salad sandwiches, turn into crabs with some toothpicks and googly eyes.

Mermaid party food

Make your fruit salad into a shark mouth! Shark attack!

Drinks can be as easy as some blue food coloring and calling it ocean water.

But seriously… buy some goldfish, Swedish fish, and sour gummy straws for seaweed. There are so many things you can do to make your guests feel “under the sea.”

Mermaid Cake

If your focus is on the cake, that’s a great centerpiece for the party with different styles to choose from.

However, don’t get overwhelmed and feel pressure to make a fancy cake. Sometimes all you need is a sparkly mermaid cake topper and you are good to go.

Mermaid baby shower games

These can be, but don’t have to be mermaid related. Here are a few ideas I have enjoyed from paste baby showers:

Baby Dec-a-Cake

Before the shower, bake a batch of cupcakes, dropping in a single miniature plastic baby in one random cup. At the shower, bring out the platter of undecorated cupcakes-without letting on that one is secretly ‘pregnant’-and give all guests a supply of frosting, candies and baby decorations. After everyone has decorated their own unique cupcake, the mom-to-be chooses her favorite and the winner gets a prize. Then, just as guests are about to devour the baked goodies whole, let everyone know that whoever finds the baby is next in line to have her own!

Bobbing for Nipples

This suggestive game is the hands-down favorite among males at coed baby showers. Set up a row of large buckets of water and drop some baby bottle nipples into each. Each guest must get down on his or her knees-hands behind backs-and bob for as many nipples as they can grab in two minutes. When the buzzer goes off, the person with the most nipples wins.

Baby Price is Right

Bob Barker isn’t the only one who can set the stage for big wins! Buy 10 to 12 baby items you think the parents-to-be will need. Use blank note cards to write the price of each item on one side and the item itself on the other. Gather guests together and play it just like the TV show: each guest must guess the price of the items on the cards, and the person with the highest total-without going over-wins. Best of all, the parents-to-be get to keep the handy baby items used for the game.
