Our eldest children are turning 5 and starting school! How did this happen? Wasn’t it just yesterday that Tiffany had morning sickness and was photographing my baby shower? Now we both have big kids who we take to school every day and have opinions about what they like and want as a birthday party theme. Fortunately, Stella likes mermaids, which makes for a super cute 5th birthday party theme (I wasn’t quite as lucky with my 5 year old who requested Rescue Bots, but that’s for a future post).
We love Tiffany’s vision for this watercolor mermaid party and thoroughly enjoyed helping her design the different elements. She pulled together a great team of vendors for everything from T-shirt and hair clip favors to adorable custom swim suits for her daughters (yes, they match the tablecloths). And to top it all off, we enjoyed a delicious (and absolutely gorgeous!) cake and some to-die-for “oyster” macarons.
Favors for this party were pretty much a little girl’s dream come true. Each mermaid guest received a custom flower hair clip from theCshoppe in the party’s color scheme, and Chazing Arrowz screen-printed the super cute “Let’s Be Mermaids” tanks. We created the glittery shell ribbon wands, and the cherry on top of it all was everyone getting glitter mermaid tattoos.
I just can’t say enough about these absolutely darling swim suits from Isla’s Closet! Do they come in Mer-mom sizes?
Happy 5th Birthday, Stella! We love seeing the wonderful girl you are growing into!
