Easy DIY Mermaid Party Treats

Who has a party to plan this season? This girl has more than one. Eeek! How does a mermaid party sound? It sounds like a blast right? Ok, let’s talk mermaid party treats then, shall we? I know it’s still spring, but summer is right around the corner. And summer just begs for a mermaid party. I mean my kiddos get out of school in three weeks. That’s right.  I said just THREE weeks! Can you believe that? I don’t know where this year has gone, but it has flown by. Summer is definitely imminent. Since both my kiddos have summer birthdays, it’s high time I get into party planning mode. Like I said, I can’t think of a better summer party theme than a mermaid party!

I know my mermaid obsessed little girl will concur that mermaids are the perfect theme for her soiree. Since she’s also been begging for a pool party, I’m thinking a mermaid pool party at home will be low key enough for this busy mama. Because if the end of the school year is anything, it’s HECTIC! I know I’m not the only parent running around like a chicken with her head cut off. So, I’m sharing an easy DIY mermaid party treat with you just in case you too have a party coming up on your calendar, but you need something simple…Well, I have the perfect recipe for simple. Order some pizza, throw some drinks in a cooler, pick up a cake in oceanic hues and serve up these mermaid party treats as party favors. Easy peasy!
