Summer Is Here, So We Partied Like Mermaids! (with help from our friends at Prep Fete)

This year was the first year of school for my eldest, and with that came her first last day of school, and I wanted to celebrate this milestone with her and a couple of her close friends. Since it’s also the beginning of summer, we thought a mermaid themed cupcake decorating & swim party would be a lot of fun.

We ordered a mermaid magic themed party kit from Prep Fete, so it was super easy to pull everything together pretty quickly.

Prep Fete carefully curated party kits come with all the essentials – good quality & beautiful decor, cake toppers, and matching tableware.

My daughter had lots of fun tossing the magical mermaid confetti onto the table (and the floor), but I’m not all that fun & fancy free, so I only gave her about 1/8th of the confetti to use. I am however, a fairly crafty mama, and have plans for other ways to use those pretty little squares of tissue & glimmer paper!

My daughter loved all the decorations, and told me she wants to have the mermaid theme for her birthday this year. I will order some more tableware with their party kit builder, and keep the decorations in their easy to store packages, for her birthday in September.

One of my favourite little touches was the little postcard included in the kit, with handy party prep tips for kids birthday parties. I know it will be especially helpful when we host our first party with school friends in the fall!
