Mermaid and Unicorn Theme Craft Party
We absolutely adore arts and crafts over here at Ellie and Piper! There’s nothing more fun than getting out the glue and paints and getting your hands dirty with a bit of messy, glittery fun. Everyone knows kids love arts and crafts too! That’s why when our friend Stephanie, owner of Mama Jots mommy and me craft blog, told us she was throwing a double birthday party for her two sweet little girls, we jumped at the opportunity to collaborate with her!
Stephanie’s girls were turning 5 and 2 in the same weekend and asked for a mermaid and unicorn themed party. Their lovely mama pulled out all of her crafting tricks and combined the fantasy creature's idea to throw together an adorable magical birthday filled with stars and glitter.
Mermaid and Unicorn Theme Craft Party Supplies
To set the scene of her magical mermaid and unicorn birthday party theme, Stephanie created a star balloon chandelier to hang above her craft table. Not only is this chandelier stunning and adorable, but it’s also super easy to recreate and customize for your own party!
Stephanie started with three star-shaped mylar balloons in gold, chrome silver, pearl lavender, rose pink, and pearl pink. She filled each balloon and attached a gold ribbon in three different lengths. Starting with the longest ribbon, she taped the strings to her ceiling with clear packing tape then did the same for each balloon length to create layers. Stephanie filled the gaps with matching colored streamers in gold, silver, pastel purple, and light pink. Our Pink Crepe Paper Streamer Set is a great place to start if you’re looking for streamers! Finally, she completed her chandelier by hanging our gold and silver star garlands tendrils for extra sparkle. We can’t get over how amazing the finished design looks!
Stephanie’s party table was a craft lover’s dream! She laid a simple purple tablecloth over her dining room table and laid a white and gold polka-dotted table runner over it. For a variation of this setup, our Pastel Rainbow Table Cover and Gold Stars Table Runner would also be great options for this unbelievable party. Bits of leftover streamers and more gold star garland were scattered down the center of the table for a bit of texture.
Not only does Stephanie own a crafting blog, but she also is the owner and founder of the kids’ craft kit company, Mini Maker Design Co. Here, Stephanie sells easy-to-do kids’ crafts packed in personalized boxes for birthday parties. Of course, when it came to her own daughters’ party, she made the perfect little craft boxes to fit their magical fantasy theme. She packed each box with an easy rainbow cloud craft complete with the necessary paints needed, a paper plate pre-cut and outlined in a rainbow shape, a cloud, glitter stars, and a paintbrush.
Stephanie completed her craft table with extra paints in squeeze bottles for easy refills and a paint palette for each guest. Every setting had an extra paintbrush (just in case) and one of our Blush Pink Classic Party Cups filled with water for rinsing.
Stephanie created such an adorable mermaid and unicorn themed craft birthday party for her two little girls. They had such an amazing birthday weekend! Every tiny guest had a great time painting and working on their crafts. They each went home with a new masterpiece to hang on their fridge!
