This first decorating setup really creates charm at your event but is also stunning for a photo shoot.  Float helium balloons or confetti balloons behind your party table or as a photo background.  This setup works for both birthdays and wedding photo shoots and creates an enchanting whimsical effect!

 

This is an easy yet striking balloon decorating option and the best part is no  helium is needed- use a hand pump to inflate your balloons and then pin or tape them to the ceiling upside down in rows or randomly in a large bunch over the party table! This is such a effortless idea that will easily become the main focal point of  any party.

 

 

 Welcome your guests at your party by creating a dramatic escalating walkway of balloons leading to the front door.

 

 

Construct a balloon backdrop by covering an entire wall with balloons. This would look stunning behind a dessert bar or even as a photo booth background.

Balloon animals! Use tissue paper and double sided tape to add cute faces to the balloons and the light tissue paper won’t weight down the balloons.

Clear balloons with confetti or glitter are all the rage right now!  Add balloon tassel streamers or tassel tails for an extra added touch to your balloons too.

Mermaid Party DIY Project

DIY Project For A Mermaid Party

Today I am sharing an easy way to brighten up your Mermaid party and add some inexpensive colorful seashells!  While you could go with regular seashells straight out of the ocean- why not give your shells a color make over?  This project is super easy too!

Before we get to the how to tutorial on how to dye your seashells, feel free to stop by any of my Etsy Shops for all your mermaid decorations.

How to Color Seashells
If you live near a beach or are vacationing at the beach this summer, fill up a bucket of shells and bring them home.  These would look great in a bucket at your mermaid party- or make something with them- add them to craft projects, wreaths, or a table centerpiece.  If you have no plans to go to the beach this year, no worries, you can purchase shells from most arts and crafts stores too.

Here’s What You’ll Need:
White Vinegar
White or Light-Colored Seashells
Food Coloring
Small Bowls
Spoon
Paper Towels
Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

1. Gather your shells and supplies.


2. Fill small bowls with a 5-6 drops of food coloring, one color per bowl.
Add about ⅓ cup of vinegar to each bowl.
Use a spoon to stir the vinegar and food coloring until combined.
Submerge your shells in your desired color and allow them to soak in the mixture for 1-3 hours.  This process is much like dying Easter eggs!


If you want lighter colors, shorten the soak time. If you want darker, more saturated color, leave the shells in longer.

3. Remove them from the dye and allow them to air dry on a paper towels, no blotting or rubbing is necessary.


Once completely air-dried, arrange your shells  anywhere at your mermaid party!

They look great in a clear glass vase, a bowl, glued to a wreath or party sign, or anywhere at the celebration!

You may notice that The Party Fetti Blog is not updated as often over the summer as I’ll be busy making many party decorations for summer birthdays, weddings, and other celebrations for my five Etsy shops.

This is my busiest time of year and so new blog posts and party inspiration only happens about once a month or so or when I have time in between my full-time graphic design work schedule and my weekly custom orders in my Etsy shops.
