LITTLE MERMAID BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS WITH MERMAID PARTY SUPPLIES:
There are so many fun Little Mermaid decorations for birthday parties that are easier to create than you’d think and that can spruce up your mermaid birthday theme party! With mermaid birthday decor, the kids will feel like they are swimming with Ariel in no time.
Mermaid Tail Garland
Everyone knows a mermaid isn’t a mermaid without her tail! This mermaid tail balloon garland is the perfect decor for a photo op or surrounding a table.
Decorate the ceiling with Jellyfish lanterns for adorable ”under the sea” decorations. They look amazing outside in natural light, or inside with added tea lights to make them glow when the lights are off!
Incorporate waves into your Little Mermaid birthday party by adding a table skirt for a 3D effect.
Ariel, the Little Mermaid herself, is not just an ordinary mermaid. She is a princess! To make the birthday girl or boy feel like royalty, string a banner for this royal occasion or make your own.
Under The Sea
Where does the Little Mermaid live? Under the sea of course! Make easy homemade “seaweed” by twisting and taping paper streamers to the wall, and add fish cutouts in-between the seaweed “deep-sea dive” decor. You can also decorate with ocean theme decorations. When buying the decorations, make sure they are ocean colors such as dark blue, baby blue, greens and white.
LITTLE MERMAID FUN PARTY GAME IDEAS:
Make the most of your mermaid themed birthday party with these FIN-tastic party games that’ll have your little mermaids swimming with excitement.
We’ve gathered various ideas that either include a pool or no water at all aside from a few underwater accessories that set the aquatic theme.
Here are three mermaid party games to get the party started.
Decorate a broom handle with blue and green colored curling ribbon. Tie long lengths to the broom handle so when you hold it up like a limbo stick, the ribbon dangles down like waves. Instead of the limbo song, play something that fits the mermaid theme (such as ‘Under the Sea’) as party guests do the limbo.
Mermaid Musical Chairs
Draw large seashells on poster board, paint or color them, and then cut them out. Set up the chairs for a game of musical chairs and tape the seashells to the seats or backs of the chairs. Play a mermaid, underwater, or beach-themed song as the players circle the chairs.
Mermaid Tail Race
This game puts a mermaid twist on the classic potato sack race. To play, you can purchase potato sacks from the party supplier and dye them green to look like mermaid tails or make your own sacks out of felt (no sewing is necessary, this works perfectly well with fabric glue). Once you have your green sacks, cut two pieces of felt to look like fins, and sew or pin them to the bottoms of the sacks. Have the kids step into them to put on their mermaid tails, and then hop in them to the finish line.
CAN’T THROW A FABULOUS MERMAID PARTY WITHOUT JUST THE RIGHT MENU SO HERE ARE SOME FUN FOOD SUGGESTIONS FOR THE BIRTHDAY BASH OF THE YEAR!
Mermaid Birthday Cake: Make a spectacular splash at your mermaid party with a stunning mermaid cake. It’s a dressed-up ice cream cake! The ice cream cake is covered in seafoam-colored whipped cream and chocolate seashells and mermaid tails.

Mermaid Fruit Salad: Want some party food that’s on the lighter & healthier side? Serve a colorful mermaid fruit salad with a lime and honey drizzle. It’s sweet, beautiful, and good for you! Cut watermelon with mermaid tail cookie cutters, and pair it with your favorite fruits like grapes, blueberries, and cantaloupe. To make this ocean themed fruit salad, you’ll need some metal cookie cutters for the cool watermelon shapes.
