How to Throw a Mermaid Themed Party Cheap

To get started, create the main display. You’ll need several inexpensive plastic tablecloths. Trim each tablecloth in a scallop pattern (as shown in the photo below).

Then layer them, starting with the teal green on the bottom (it will be near the edge of the table on the top, tape it into place. Add the scalloped seafoam green tablecloth over the teal and again tape it into place.

Add the lavender purple scalloped tablecloth over the seafoam green tablecloth and tape it into place. Then finally, top with the royal purple tablecloth and secure it as well with tape so it won’t slip around.

Attach a net to the wall to secure balloons, allowing the net to overlap the top of the table. Craft nets are very inexpensive, we found this one on amazon for just a few dollars.
