Hosting a five year olds birthday party can get to be very expensive. Me and my family decided to make some of the decorations and party necessities. The theme was mermaid/under the sea! Here are a few pictures of what we did. Enjoy!!
I made a piñata by blowing up a balloon, 3 layers of paper mâché and then a paint layer and crepe streamers for decoration
There's the birthday girl taking a swing!
We made jelly fish to hang for decorations with paper bowls, steamers and googly eyes!
They looked really cute hanging from trees.
I made the gift bags with lunch bags and images I printed off.
This is a birthday dress I made for little Judy.
There's Judy in her Ariel "human" dress I made! This was a pool party so she didn't keep it on for long! What a cutie!!
We made a mermaid cake and cupcakes with chocolate shell molds on top!!
Here's a better look at the cake! I was pretty proud of this! And it was really easy to make!
Though time consuming I think these projects turned out great and added a personal touch to the party! I mean, you only turn five once!!!!!!
