A giant sea shell or a mermaid shaped invite make great invitations.
Little Mermaid Party Supplies
Party supplies are essential. Little Mermaid party packs are convenient. It is a great idea to purchase the packs – they are usually a little cheaper than buying individual party supply items. The party packs often include some decorations, thank you cards, balloons, and party favors. Click here for more information on party supplies.
Create the atmosphere.
Ariel is a singer, so play music from The Little Mermaid at your party.
Another Little Mermaid birthday party idea is to decorate the room to look like the ocean floor under the sea. Or make the room resemble Prince Eric’s ship.
Little Mermaid Gifts
There are many wonderful Ariel-themed gifts. Consider an Ariel doll, either Barbie-size or mini-sized. I've seen them in both human and mermaid form. Some dolls even have removable fins, allowing you to change the doll from mermaid to human.
The Little Mermaid soundtrack is also a great gift, especially if your little princess loves singing or dancing.
If your princess loves to get dressed up, consider a seashell necklace, bracelet or hair clip. These can be purchased or handmade for personalized touch.
Puzzles are also great gift ideas. There are simple to more complex puzzles, depending on the level your child is at. Some puzzles feature multiple Disney princesses, while others only have the characters from The Little Mermaid.
Posters, sheets, pillows, comforters and alarm clocks are great gift ideas for an Ariel-themed bedroom. Either start the theme with these gifts, or give additional objects that add to the theme.
Finally, The Little Mermaid theater production is an unforgettable gift. We attended an adaptation of the fairy tale in Arizona at Hale Center Theater and my daughter loved it and talked about it for weeks.
Little Mermaid Party Favors
A sea shell necklace, bracelet and compact are great items to include in the Little Mermaid party favor bag.

Little Mermaid Thank You Notes
