My little one just turned three years old, so we have been celebrating mermaid-style.
This little cake topper was great, I put in the top of my cupcake stand. 🙂 Made from glitter cardstock. It’s times like this that I am happy I subscribe to the Cricut image library. I only use public-domain fonts/images for my shop work, and so it’s fun to finally dive into these exciting designs during big events.
You can see the cake topper a bit there – – everything was mermaid themed: cupcakes, wrapping paper, food. Even all the presents. It was just a small gathering with Grandma & Grandpa, but what a festivity! (and Willie too, my doggie, he did a great photo-bomb in the back 😀 <3)
Here’s an image of a garland from the Cricut image library. So intricate. I love all the 3d effects the designs have, with different layers of paper.
They even had a design for this cute little crown. My mermaid princess proudly wore her seashell tiara. I also made some foiled signs. This one says “fish food”, which is just a bowl of chocolate/pretzel goldfish.
I also put out a teapot filled with “ocean water”. This one was just water dyed blue, but if I had enough time, I would recommend going and getting blue Kool-Aid or another blue liquid. But still very fun!
So there’s how we celebrated mermaid-style? What sort of birthday events have your organized for your families? Love to hear all the wonderful ideas!
