Reese is Four: Under the Sea Party

January 12, 2014  •  1 Comment

I can hardly believe my sweet baby turned four this weekend!  She decided in May of this year that she wanted to have an Ariel birthday party.  Glad she told me early because a mermaid party in January is no easy feat!  Just wanted to share a few photos (actually a ton) from the party!  A special thank you to some amazing vendors and dear friends who helped make this all come together!  I think I had as much fun planning it as she did partying....almost!

Enjoy!

Thank you to my sweet friend, Ariel!  You are amazing and have a big heart for making my princess feel so special!

Party Décor: Shop Sweet Lulu, Michael's, and a local craft store. 

Various hand-crafted items (tutorial links added):

  • star wands-couldn't find a tutorial for these.  I painted dowel rods with two colors and blended them in the center to create the ombre effect.  The toppers are made from two sequin stars hot-glued to the rod.  Tied with ribbon and voila....times 12!!!
  • sequin hangers  *these were a labor of LOVE!!!!!!*
  • gold crowns
  • ombre glitter bottles-my mom did these for me
  • mermaid necklaces -my mom is the mastermind on these-I just helped
  • oyster cookies- same as tutorial except I used Pepperidge Farms Lemon Cookies

 

They danced away to the Little Mermaid soundtrack and enjoyed dressing up and getting their faces painted....we had a room full of little princess mermaids!  We all had a blast and I wouldn't change a thing!!!!  So proud of my sweet four year old, proud to be her mommy and thankful to be able to celebrate her in such a special way!!!  Thank you to all of our family and friends for loving on my girl!  We love you all:)

Love,

Candace

I think it was the best "dirday party ever!! Had so much fun and really took a while to sit back and soak up
all the pretty scenery.......it really took a while to see "all you had done and take it all in. I know you worked
hard and had fun planning it. Also so proud of Reese....she was a very gracious 4 year old. I loved seeing
her opening each present and having something sweet to say about every present. I think the little Princesses
had such a good time and they were so in awe of Ariel showing up to the party too!
