I am thrilled to be able to link up to Decorate to Celebrate this week as the theme is "Anything Goes!"
The invitations were from Paper Doll Dress Up. They have cute Peachy Keen faces and dance on their little springs! (Action Wobbles) Their tails are cuttlebug embossed.
The idea originated from our Yum! magazine with an article by One Charming Party and quickly spiraled out of control thanks to Pinterest!
Ideas we used from the magazine were:
This fun mermaid sign Joy painted and decorated (we used the cricut and contact paper to put the letters on while she painted the blue layer and peeled them off while the paint was still wet). It was very cute that she asked her dad for a 2 x 4....
Cupcakes also from the magazine:
And the fishnet on the table:
The only reason my table is inside is because it was storming when the girls first got here, so we improvised with a game of Twister (it cleared up beautifully within the hour):
I remembered this adorable mermaid towel from the project section at Embroidery Library (great resource for creative sewing projects whether your embroider or not). I looked at cute ones on pinterest, too, and came up with my own adaptation:
I embroidered the names in a big, curly, girly font. We stuck to our turquoise and lime green theme:
here at Crafty Mama Sanchez blog. It took some youtube viewing to master the crocodile stitch, but I love the texture. It was made with lots of love at many baseball games and other mom-has-to-sit-and-wait events. :)
Fish FoodA good time was had by all the little mermaids....
