I attended one of the CUTEST mermaid birthday parties! Everything was down to a 'T.' They had sea star sandwiches, algae juice and even dingle-hoppers! All the decorations and items were ocean and/or mermaid related so I felt right in my element! There was even a photo backdrop for mermaid pictures! But what mermaid birthday party isn't complete without a mermaid? I was a surprise appearance to this little birthday girl who adored everything mermaids. She had no idea I was coming. When I showed up, she shouted, "A MERMAID!!!" All the girls were dressed with their mermaid shirts, and they had just had mermaid make-overs complete with make-up, jewelry and nails. I pulled one of my tails out for the birthday girl to use for the day, which made her mermaid dreams come true! I also presented her with a gift with a sea crown made from all the elements of the ocean: shells, seaweed, pearls and a little sparkle.
It was then that we began to add on to their mermaid ensembles by making sea crowns. During this time, I was loaded with questions which I was only too happy to answer. After all, how often do you get to ask a mermaid questions about her life under the sea? We talked about sea animals and sleeping and eating and where I lived. I told them about some of the animals I have encountered, and explained that not everything is out to get you; they just want to live happy lives like us.
Once the sea crowns were complete, it was time for photos now that they were head to toe (or shall I say, "fin") in their creations. It was hard to break away from such a fun afternoon! I hope we meet again someday because though it was one of the best days of her life, it was also one of the best of mine! :-D
