Little Miss Emma turned 3 in July!
(can you believe I'm just now blogging about it?!)
Her current obsession is all things mermaid. A mermaid party it was!
We started out with a few simple games. This is for a 3 year old crowd, after all!
This one was "Feed the shark!"
It was a ball toss game. They just had to throw the ball in the shark's mouth!
The second was "Pin the tail on the mermaid"
(which I forgot to take a picture of!)
After that, it was time for food and cake!
Emma wanted a "fancy cake". This was all I was up for making this year, having a brand new baby!
Ombre rosettes, and a glittery number 3,
Here she is, blowing out the candles on big number 3!
The rest of the food followed our under the sea theme.
Ocean "Jelly" was a huge hit. Kids love jello. It's a fact!
Rice crispies are a fave of Miss E, so we had to have those.
Layered "mermaid" cakes were fun too. Just layered cupcake pops.
We had chocolate AND vanilla. Trying to please everyone!
Love how these "clam" cookies turned out. So cute!
We also had dipped pretzels (another Miss E request).
For party favors, I made all the girl's sparkly mermaid tails and starfish wands!
The starfish wands are simple to made. Find large starfish at your craft store, and hot glue on some ribbon and a dowel rod! Easy.
Almost forgot about the cookies. What party is complete without AMAZING sugars cookies?
Aren't these beautiful? So cute.
In all, an awesome birthday for our spunky and fun Miss Emma.
