Mermaid Party Supplies

I LOVE a Mermaid party theme….I think it’s because of the gorgeous colour combinations that you often find with this theme….coral pinks, aqua blues, mint green, lavender…I love it all.

It is very easy to style with shells and other sea related decorations however I don’t even think you HAVE to go overboard with lots of sea related decor. You can just go with a very sea inspired colour scheme and using lots of these colours throughout your party alone can create a sea feel.

Here are some mermaid party supplies which will help you on your way to dreaming up a mermaid celebration for your child – many of course are from vendors listed in the Life’s Little Celebration’s children’s party directory!

Shark & Scuba Theme

With summer upon us, this theme is fantastic for any kids who love the beach or ocean and especially great for a pool party where you want more of a theme besides just a pool party!

You could base this party around blues and greens, along with another colour such as grey or something bright to go with a tropical feel such as red or yellow.

I have kept this post to mainly shark/scuba ideas although if you look into “Under the sea” parties online there are many more ideas out there which I’ll have to keep for another blog post!


There are some great options available for this theme:

Under the Sea Jennifer Birkhead Designs invitation - Little Sooti


Shark printable birthday range - Frog Prince Paperie


Shark and Scuba printable range - Paper and Cake


Shark attack printable range - Slindb



Being an ocean inspired theme there are many ways you could decorate for this party.

A ribbon backdrop would work well for a dessert table to give an ocean/seaweed feel in shades of blue/green ribbons. Or you could use streamers to create a seaweed effect as well. Include fish cut outs and other ocean inspired shapes hanging from the ceiling (jellyfish, seahorses etc)create the underwater feel.


Tropical fish cut outs - Lombard


Printable DIY fish paper garland - Happy Paper Hearts

A backdrop such as this one could also be used for the table or other area in the party:


Under the sea backdrop - Happy Time


The soft floaty look of pom poms would also work well into the decor for this theme:

Grass green Ah-Tissue pom poms - Piece of Cake Parties and Celebrations


Aqua Ah-Tissue pom poms - Piece of Cake Parties and Celebrations

These garlands remind me of an underwater world…

Tissue garlands - Inviteme

For something a little different (and lovely to hang up after the party) these shell swags look great and could be something you could make yourself:

Shell swag - Island Collections


Or use wall decals to set the scene and then easily transfer them to your child’s room after the party:

Scuba diving wall decal - Hakuna Matata Decor



Love the colour of this tablerunner for an crystal clear water look:

Tiffany blue table runner - {P} is for Party

Or if you want to create the feel of a sandy ocean floor then you could use this Hessian tablecloth:

Dyed hessian cloth tablecloth - Occasion by Design


These paper eskimo plates come in the perfect colours for this theme:

Paper eskimo plates - Occasion by Design


Paper Eskimo apple green plates - Occasion by Design

A mix of aqua blue and green stripes make these straws perfect for an ocean inspired theme!

Aqua and green stripe straws - Sharnel Dollar Designs


The little ones will love to drink anything which have these shark fins floating in them!

Shark fin ice tray - Vivid Room


Sweet Treats

Shark fins are an easy shape to add onto any treats on your table – whether it be as cupcake toppers, or food flags. Here are some other items you could use for this theme:

Shark cookie cutter - The Spotted Apron


Sherbert blue baking cup - Sharnel Dollar designs

Shark cupcake toppers and wave wrappers - Giggle Bees


Shark Cupcake Toppers - Little Betsy Baker

Little blue jelly cups would work really well on your dessert table and I love these mousse pots to serve the jelly in which can be reused for many parties:

Mousse pots/jelly pots - Tracey Lau Art & Soul

A gorgeous teal colour cake stand (which comes in different sizes) is perfect for this theme!

Tall teal cake stand - Emerald and Ella

Themed items

Let the kids have some fun in a photo corner using a prop board such as this – perfect for a shark and scuba theme!


Shark prop photo board - Happy Time


Instead of party hats, these Shark hats would be fun to have all the little ones running around in!

Shark Hat - Echidnas on the Loose

Some ocean inspired/theme inspired toys are fantastic to keep the kids entertained. If you’re in Sydney these toys (and more ocean themed toys) are available to hire form Tiny Tots Toy Hire:

Octupus merry go round - Tiny Tots Toy Hire


Angel fish rocker - Tiny Tots Toy Hire


Or outside of Sydney you can buy some of these items which would be fun for any summer party in future anyway!

Great white shark rider blow up toy - Swim In


Dash n Splash shark bite ride - Mr Toys


Create the look of the ocean floor for all the little divers with shells, corals, sea urchins, star fish and more!

Baby sea urchins set - Boho beach

Or simple ocean bath toys could be used for fun kid friendly decorations (or party favours)

Sassy snap and squirt sea creatures - Baby Village

Use these shell placecard holders to hold your food labels! You can’t even tell they are placecard holders so you could display them in a nice vase after the party too:

Sea shell placecard holder - Pink Frosting


Use props around the party which double as birthday gifts for the shark and scuba loving birthday boy or girl. Using 2 water bottles you could create a scuba tank prop as well.

Kids falcon snorkelling fins - Swimwear Shack


Large shark plush - Teddy Treasures




Hang a sign such as this (which you could also make yourself) around the party area:

Shark sign - Australiana Online


Another item which could help work with an underwater theme such as this, is a Bubble Machine. This one is available for hire in Sydney from Tiny Tots Toy Hire, or outside of Sydney you can find them online and in most department stores:

Bubble machine for hire - Tiny Tots Toy Hire



A few cute favour ideas for this party:

Schleich scuba smurf - Playdex


These snorkel kits are quite affordable and could be given to the kids to use if you were having a pool party as part of this theme, to use during the party as well:

Kids swim mask and snorkel set - Epools


Or perhaps some swimming goggles which they can reuse many times:

Zoggs junior swin goggles - Rebel Sport


Grey shark bath gel - Parties and Gifts


Set of 4 fishy soaps - Bubble Lane


Shark plastic toys - Australian National Maritime Museum

For packaging I love the wave effect on these lovely scallop boxes:

Scallop boxes - Sweet Little Birdy

For a beach/sandy feel these 2 options would work well filled with something delicious:

Cloth bags - The Party Studio


Corked bottle - The Party Studio
