Chase’s 4 Year Birthday Party – June 2017

Leave a comment

Catching up on posts and wanted to share photos of Chase’s 4th birthday party from June 2017, which was mermaid themed.

We started her birthday morning with a spa day of nails and hair. Chase’s first salon manicure and pedicure.

Fondant Seashells from Etsy Store: anafeke

I used brown sugar in the food display to look like sand. For the table cloth my husband and I took brown paper and created a treasure map and burnt the edges and holes in it.

For decorations, I reused vases that I had, filled them with play sand, seashells and white candles. I used existing storage boxes that I had of different types. Our professional photographer didn’t get photos of all of the food items. We had:

  • Pirate Popcorn
  • ‘Fish & Chips’ – goldfish crackers and apple chips
  • Crab Dip
  • ‘Seaweed Dip’ – Spinach Artichoke Dip
  • ‘Rafts’ – Tortilla Rounds
  • ‘Drift Wood’ – Pita Chips
  • ‘Floats’ – Root Beer Floats with Ice Cream in Mason Jars and Root Beer Bottles
  • Sea Water – Fruit Punch
  • Lagoon Water – Gatorade
  • Snowcones

I didn’t love the Etsy Store that did the birthday banner so I won’t leave the store name here.
