Today I am featuring this lovely Under The Sea Party. This was a more grown-up/pre-teen party not so much like the Little Mermaid.
I love this cake and it’s not that hard to make!
To save on time and money, a plain 2-tiered cake was ordered from the bakery and then decorated at home before the party. It’s amazing what a box of brown sugar, some seashells, starfish and a few tropical flowers can do to a cake! Using brown sugar as sand it brilliant!
I decorated a store bought cake for my daughters graduation cake and loved how it turned out!
Raffia and seashells were added to the invitations for an extra pretty touch before mailing them off to the guests.
Put together to rectangle tables to create a large square table. This way everyone gets to sit together and there is more room for the creative centerpiece! Consider renting chair covers to match the tablecloth to create the final touch!
Live goldfish centerpieces are always such a hit! It also doubled as a lovely party favor as each guest were given a goldfish to take home in an adorable mini fishbowl at the end of the party! Other centerpiece details include using aqua blue tablecloths, fish nets, coral and shells. I love the clear aqua pebbles in the fishbowl along with the surprise Little Mermaid figurine!
A band of seashells and starfish make a pretty napkin rings.
A pretty platter of Under The Sea Cupcakes!
Before the guest head out the door, have them scoop out a bag of candy from the Ocean Candy Bar! Use fish nets, shells and apothecary jars to decorate the table.

They are super easy to make and so cute for the Under the Sea party!

Hi I was just wondering what is the background for the invitations made out of? Thank you!
This was not my party. It actually looks like those are paper printed invitations and the raffia was added overtop. Here is the link to the original blog and the person who created the party. The blog looks like it has not been updated, but if you email her (from the blog) she may tell you where she got the invitations.
That’s the best I can do…good luck!
