A Mermaid Birthday Party

Clover_turns 6_Ariel Party_June2015-33This gorgeous Mermaid party was another collaboration with Amber from The Amber Image for her darling daughter Clover.  Amber and I have very similar visions when it comes to decor and a great party and we are so excited with how everything turned out!  One of my favorite installs was my custom made jellyfish.Clover_turns 6_Ariel Party_June2015-21The main inspiration for the table was imagining that you had happened upon a Mermaid cove with all of her treasures.  I started with creating this backdrop that adds just a hint that this is actually Ariel’s cove.  🙂  I made a subtle ombre painted backdrop and a large dimensional Ariel fin and hair that would assume she was swimming by. Laying multiple layers of soft teal fabric and sequins, rope, and netting help set the stage for the beautiful cupcakes, cake and fine special details.
