Dive into Magic: How to Plan a Little Mermaid Party in Arizona

Arizona may be a desert, but that doesn’t mean you can't host an unforgettable under-the-sea adventure right in your backyard! With the help of Pixie Dusted Party, you can transform any venue into a vibrant underwater kingdom that will enchant mermaid enthusiasts of all ages. Here’s how to plan a magical Little Mermaid party:

Invitations: Set the Scene

Start the adventure with themed invitations. Opt for designs featuring Ariel, seashells, starfish, and ocean waves. Digital invitations are a fun and eco-friendly option, but a DIY touch with glitter and sequins can add extra sparkle to traditional paper invites.

Venue and Decorations: Create an Underwater World

Venue Selection

Choosing the right venue is crucial, especially in Arizona. An indoor space can provide a cool respite from the heat, but if you prefer an outdoor celebration, consider a shaded backyard or a community pool area.


Transform your space into an underwater paradise with these ideas:

- Color Scheme: Use ocean blues, sea greens, and splashes of purple and coral.

- Backdrop: Hang blue streamers and balloon garlands to mimic waves.

- Balloons: Create an oceanic atmosphere with clusters of blue, teal, and white balloons.

- Props: Scatter starfish, coral, and fish toys around the venue. An inflatable sea creature or a life-sized cardboard cutout of Ariel can make for great photo ops.

Food and Drinks: Ocean-Inspired Treats


Create a menu that reflects the oceanic theme:

- Sandwiches: Use cookie cutters to make fish-shaped sandwiches.

- Seafood: Serve shrimp cocktails or fish sticks.

- Fruit: A platter arranged with watermelon, blueberries, and pineapple can mimic the colors of the sea.


- Mermaid Cupcakes: Decorate with blue frosting and edible pearls.

- Seashell Cookies: Use a shell-shaped cookie cutter and decorate with icing.

- Ocean Jell-O Cups: Layer blue Jell-O with gummy fish.


- Sea Water Punch: Make a blue punch with a mix of lemonade and blue raspberry Kool-Aid.

- Mermaid Smoothies: Blend tropical fruits for a refreshing treat.

Party Favors: Send Guests Home with a Splash

Thank your guests with themed party favors:

- Mermaid Tail Blankets: Cozy and fun for sleepovers.

- Seashell Necklaces: DIY kits or pre-made necklaces.

- Ocean Slime: A fun, gooey reminder of the underwater fun.

Final Touches

Ensure your party runs smoothly by planning ahead:

- Schedule: Plan a schedule that includes time for each activity.

- Helpers: Enlist friends or family to help with setup, hosting, and cleanup.
