Throw a Mermaid Themed Party Cheap

Mermaid themed parties are very popular and it’s easy to see why! Here are some simple mermaid decorations, party favors, party ideas and more…
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 onamazon for just a few dollars.

Next, add a few beachy themed foods, like this fun and delicious “Coral” made from simple rock candy.
