A mermaid party is simply an underwater party you and your friends will truly enjoy being a part of, full of glitter and shimmer. The possibilities for fun party foods in a mermaid theme are almost endless (and endless tempting!) so prepare for plenty of fun when you're putting these delicious treats together.
The first step in creating a beautiful mermaid themed party is by finding some food that goes well with the mermaid theme. Try to find foods that have an underlying similarity in texture to the skin on a mermaid's body such as fish, shrimp, clams, or whatever else would fit best with the mermaid theme. You should also consider buying some mermaid themed drink mix, as this would be extremely easy to serve.
If you have never seen a mermaid cake, they are simply large round cakes covered in a soft shiny fabric. These cake creations can be either round or oblong in shape. They are usually decorated with flowers, small animals, sea life and other items that you can imagine flowing around the cake and the mermaid theme. It is important not to over do it, though, because you don't want to end up with a cake that looks like a mermaid has gone completely overboard and started a bath!
When decorating a mermaid cake, you want to focus mainly on the shape. Use fish, seashells, and other such decorations that would match the mermaid theme. Make sure to use a variety of colors, and not only black, white, and cream. Choose bright colors that would really catch the eye, such as yellows, reds, purples, oranges and blues. You may also wish to incorporate some seashells into your cake design as well. Make sure you include the mermaid's name and possibly some details about her personality such as what color she is, what type of fish she is, or even if she is a mermaid or a woman of the sea.
Another important aspect of designing a mermaid cake is making sure that the decorations and the cake are appropriate for the mermaid theme. Because mermaid cakes are usually decorated in a round shape, you can use your imagination to come up with a multitude of ideas for decorations such as balloons and ribbons, decorations, ribbons, streamers, ribbons, candles and other little things that would go along with the mermaid theme. It is important that you use your imagination to ensure that your decorations and cake go together and not only for looks but also for safety reasons.
A good place to start your search for decorations and ideas is with the internet. There are plenty of sites and blogs that cater specifically to mermaid parties. Look at sites like Fishwife, MermaidCakes and more. Also look online for websites that have the mermaid theme or look for mermaid themed wedding site for ideas.
