“Under the sea, Under the sea, Darling it’s better, Down where it’s wetter, Take it from me,” says our favorite crab, Sebastian from The Little Mermaid. It is very hard to believe The Little Mermaid came out nearly 30 years ago!

Free Mermaid Party Ideas
But before we jump to my list of Mermaid Party Ideas, I want to share our FREE Mermaid resources you can use in planning your Mermaid themed party:
Another Mermaid themed decor idea you can make for your party is this Jellyfish Paper Lanterns. You can buy pastel circle lantern at your nearest craft store and add some crepe paper at the bottom of each lantern to serve as jellyfish tentacles. Then hang it somewhere high to make the jellyfish float.
When I first saw this Mermaid Popcorn Recipe, I already knew I'll be making this for my daughter if we decide to throw a Mermaid themed party. The popcorn looks yummy and the pastel color just adds the mermaid vibe. You can make this at home for your little girl's party by simply following the recipe provided.
For party desserts, you can make this Chocolate Mermaid Tail by simply following the easy recipe made by Stylish Cravings. It's super easy that your kids can even help you out in making this yummy looking chocolate. You can either serve this on your food table or wrap it to give as party favors.
If you want to serve some cupcakes on your child's Mermaid themed party, you can decorate your cupcake using this sparkly Mermaid Cupcake Topper I saw on Etsy. It comes with a mermaid tail, a starfish, a seahorse, and a seashell design.
If you look over the internet for Mermaid Cake ideas, I'm pretty sure you'll see a bunch of awesome designs. However, this mermaid cake from Peggy Porschen just stands out to me! If you are a baker or know someone who can make awesome cakes, then you can absolutely get design inspiration from this beautiful cake.
Complete your Mermaid themed party by making this cool mermaid treasure trove! Let your guests have a mini adventure in searching for mermaid trinkets they can bring at home. Some lovely trinket ideas you can hide are mermaid rings, keychains, pins, and bubble bottles.
Kids are crazy over slime! What better way to entertain them during a Mermaid themed party than giving them a mermaid-inspired slime? They will surely love it and you can also give the slimes as take-home gifts.
If you plan to make a photobooth corner during your Mermaid themed party, this Mermaid Photo Booth Props I saw on Etsy will come handy. It has a lot of mermaid-inspired graphic designs and wordings that will be a hit to your guests.
This Mermaid Hair Tie I saw on Etsy will make a cute (not to mention super useful for girls who have crazy mermaid hairs) party favor.
