If your daughter is always hunting for sea glass, obsessed with all things under the sea or wishes she had a fin instead of legs, then she’s itching for a mermaid birthday party! Grant her this magical wish and turn your dining room into her mermaid grotto. Dress the tables and chairs with waves of aqua and purple and tulle! Serve clamshell cookies, crispy rice stars and cupcakes covered in a mermaid sprinkle mix to satisfy their sweet tooth. If you’re near a body of water, dive right in and afterward create beautiful sand art so your friends will remember their adventure at your birthday bash!
