- Mermaid treats
- Mermaid games and activities
- Mermaid party favors
Let me know if you have anything to add to the list!
Mermaid party invitations
Start your party out with a cute customized mermaid invitation. Change what the mermaid looks like on the cover to match the mermaid birthday girl!

mermaid party SUPPLIES
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). Some of the below are packets of decorations to buy but there are plenty of DIY stuff you can do if you have time.
Plenty of options to buy packages online with mermaid colors, or you can do some DIY stuff. What do you think?
These are a real easy way to decorate and can be stored fairly easily!
Easy ocean theme
Even these ocean themed decorations would look great and could be reused for another party.
Mermaid table cloth
Get some mermaid sequin fabric for a sparkly table runner that will match with any color scheme.
Matching Plates, napkins etc
Super easy! Get some paper products with mermaid decor, or head to the dollar store and pick your favorite mermaid color.
If you have the time and skill, mermaid cakes are pretty dang cool. There are plenty of different ways to tie in the “under the sea” theme. Check out these ideas and let me know if you dare to try it!
Mermaid cake fondant waves
One day I would like to have this kind of birthday cake talent. However, right now my talent will be admiring these works of art!

Mermaid cake topper
Can’t quite stomach the thought of decorating a fancy cake? No worries, there are plenty of mermaid cake toppers you can use. 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 Ariel’s red hair and flounder.
This section could go on and on… but hopefully gives you some ideas on what you can do for the party food section!
Under the sea candy
Check this out! Looks like something you would find on the bottom of the ocean!
Here are a few other ideas for mermaid candy.
Mermaid games and activities
Mermaid games totally depend on who the party is for. If it is kids or even teenage parties, face paint or face gems are fun to add some sparkle. If you have a pool there are other options to incorporate swimming.
Mermaid Face painting
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)
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?
Mermaid photo stand
photo booth supplies For mermaids
Include a fun backdrops and props for a photo opportunity and watch everyone get into the party. Great way to make memories with friends.
Mermaid dress ups
Pin the tail on the mermaid
This obviously is for younger kids but I thought it was a creative idea.
Have a table dedicated to coloring mermaid pictures and kids will be occupied for hours.
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.
Mermaid Bath bombs
Sometimes the bombs are funner than soap. Often more expensive but who doesn’t want to sit in a colorful bath!
You can actually find some fairly cheap mermaid jewelry for party favors if you buy them in bulk. Which ones do you like best?
Mermaid hair ties
Good luck with your mermaid party! I hope it is magical for you and all your guests!
