Mermaid Party Refreshments
Mermaid Party Refreshments
Some dishes that fit the under-the-sea theme include macaroni and cheese made with shell-shaped pasta, "sushi" sandwiches of turkey, cucumbers, carrots and cream cheese in rolled white bread and bananas, pineapples and other fruits served on skewers or pretzels as "fruit kebabs." Popcorn shrimp and fish sticks also fit the theme, but be sure to have chicken tenders as well for fussy eaters.

To make "Mermaid Punch," mix blue Kool Aid with ginger ale and blend with ice. Garnish with cherries, orange slices and a paper umbrella! For another blue ocean treat, chill blue Jell-O in clear plastic cups. Before it's solid, add Swedish Fish or other gummy creatures, and top with a wave of whipped cream when ready to serve.

A "Mermaid Beach" birthday cake is a fun way to go if you're baking it yourself. Ice about half of the cake with blue and white swirls to resemble the ocean, the rest yellow and white for the beach. Add brown sugar and graham cracker crumbs for the illusion of sand and garnish with candy seashells and mermaid cake toppers. If cupcakes are more your style, try blue frosting garnished with pink candy flowers.

After the Mermaid Party
After the Mermaid Party
When the party is over you'll want to send your guests home with goody bags filled with trinkets and treasures to remind them of their under-the-sea adventures. Plastic beach pails are excellent containers that will see many uses after the party is over. You can also decorate white or blue paper bags with underwater designs and mermaid stickers. Fill with costume jewelry, ring pops and candy necklaces, foil-covered chocolate coins, fish pencil toppers, small bottles of bubble bath and mermaid stickers and sticker books.

Don't forget to take plenty of pictures of your mermaid princesses to send with personalized thank you notes!
