Birthday Party Ideas-Mermaid Party

This Little Mermaid party was Queen Bee's first friends party.  We wanted to make our living room feel like it was "under the sea".  To create this effect we hung a fishing line across the living room ceiling and then hung streamers in various shades of blue from the fishing line.  This created a wall of streamers that the girls could walk through to enter "the sea" on the other side.  Once "under the sea", we had a bubble machine filling the room with bubbles and clear balloons blown up all over the floor to look like giant bubbles.  I hung printable fish and sea creatures from The Little Mermaid all over the ceiling with fishing wire and had plastic shells and sea creatures all over the floor.  There was a giant treasure chest with Little Mermaid crowns and necklaces for the girls.  I wish I would have taken more pictures.  

I wanted to think of a way to make the girls feel like they were a mermaid so I came up with the idea to wrap their legs together with green plastic wrap.  It was perfect!  They had so much fun waddling around like mermaids.  We played different relay games waddling and swimming back and forth across the room, they loved it!
