I had an area set up when people arrived to grab their gear! Tiaras and wands for the mermaids and pirate hats or bandannas and eye patches for the pirates! I even had some inflatable swords in a bucket for the boys to play with and that was a hit!
I had this poster printed but honestly when it got down to party time, I completely forgot sand. So the poster made a nice decoration piece instead!
And of course you cant throw a toddler party without bubbles! I made this “Bucket of fun” and placed it right outside the tent so the kids could grab some bubbles and start playing!
There were two parts to the tent. One side for the mermaids and the other for the pirates!
I made this super cute game and got the idea from Pinterest, is there anywhere else? Matt’s mom brought me this old piece of cork board she wasn’t using and I painted it, covered with some fabric and glued the hooks to it. I ordered rings from Amazon.
This was probably my favorite part of the party! I painted this giant piece of cork board and used it as an prop for kids to take their pictures behind! It turned out great!
Some food from the mermaid table included: Berry’d treasure (berries in cups), Seahorse veggies, jello cups with gummy fish in the bottom, clam cookies, and rice Krispie treats.
The pirates food included: Seaweed dip (pioneer woman spinach and artichoke), Mermaid burgers and Pirate Hot dogs with all the fixins.
A close up of the beautiful cakes that were also delicious!!
See the hole in the pirate cake? Yeah, my little Maddie Rae got a hold of it before I could take a decent picture of it!! That’s my Maddie Rae;)
