Alright! (cracking knuckles) Let’s talk about mermaid supplies decorations. I mean… who doesn’t want their house decked out with mermaid themed party decor? I am a little passionate about that (if you couldn’t tell).

Definitely not necessary but… is a fun addition. If doing a mermaid cake, or mermaid cupcakes, add a fun mermaid topper with fancy frosting. Also… have you seen these wedding cake toppers? Gorgeous, with a little bit of Ariel, themed into them.

Mermaid games and activities


Mermaid games totally depend on who the party is for. If it is kids or even teenage party, face paint or face gems are fun to add some sparkle. If you have a pool there are other options to incorporate the pool.

This is a great birthday party idea for little kids. Use a scale template so all the girls feel like the little mermaid (and you don’t have to be self-conscious about your face painting abilities)

Face Gems

No desire to face paint? I get it, face gems are a good option and gift idea for a party favor bag.  Easier to clean up than glitter. Am I right?

Pin the tail on the mermaid

This obviously is for younger kids but I thought it was a creative idea.

mermaid coloring station

Have a table dedicated to coloring mermaid pictures.

Mermaid pinata

Not sure how you feel about hitting a tissue paper mermaid, but there are such things as Mermaid Pinatas.  There are shells, pirate chests, and sea animals as alternatives.

mermaid pool party


Ever thought of hiring a mermaid? The average price is around $200 for the first hour and $150 an hour after that.  They are MAGICAL  for the kids! With or without a pool, mermaids can read books, play games and teach about ocean conservation in their mermaid tail. They arrive early so the kids don’t see their land legs! Sneaky.


Mermaid Party favors


You can find some already made mermaid party favors on Etsy but depending on how many kids you have, that can get expensive quick! Here are some other ideas you can do for the goodie bag.
