Enchantment Under the Sea

I need to gush about my talented friend 
who threw the most adorable party for he sweet little girl who turned 5!
I can't believe we have 5 year olds.

Evelyn did a ton of research online and via Pinterest and put together the most amazing
Enchantment Under the Sea Mermaid Party.
You have to see the pictures to believe it or check out her blog
The Littlest Things HERE

Here is the sign ushering you to the party room.  
She hand painted the faux wood planks she found at the craft store.

Glimpse of the party room.

Kids table centerpiece.
Michael was obsessed with the different seashells.
Evelyn even dusted each with glitter.

Those are plastic table clothes made to look like waves on the ceiling.
I love the paper lanterns.

The kids activity table
She had spiral colored hair clips, bracelets and hair glitter for the girls.
Pirate hats, eye patches and mustaches for the boys
and sea themed tattoos for all. 

The snack table.

More hand painted signs listing the snacks. 

Snail shaped chocolate croissants
PB&J Goldfish sandwiches

The most ADORABLE fruit kabob blowfish.
how precious is it!!!

A personalized Keep Calm sign. <3

Mermaid punch was delicious.

How cute are these glasses?
They are from Starbucks and the straws were purchased online.

The main party table
I love how she has twinkle lights under the backdrop. 
It made the table sparkle.

Goodie Bags

Homemade cupcakes and white chocolate seashells.

Delicious sugar cookies made by another one of our friends.

Homemade white chocolate and graham cracker coated marshmallows
and chocolate covered Oreos.  

And here the the cake.
The bakery made the fondant look like waves.
It was so pretty. 

And delicious!
Even the layers inside were varied.

Last but not least,
here is a shot of the sweet birthday girl.

Hope you enjoyed viewing the party as much as I did.

Great job, Evelyn!!!!!!!
