Under the Sea for 3

Saturday we celebrated our feisty little girl turning three with a mermaid themed birthday party. Again this year, I opted to create her invitation myself and I am pretty pleased with how it turned out!

We kept the party pretty small and the turnout was comparable to years past. She doesn't have a ton of tiny human friends so it was mostly my friends who have tiny humans and her best friend from daycare, Savannah :)  

For the most part, the decor came from Amazon - hello $4, 38 inch balloons. With the exception of the huge balloons, I kept it super simple. I worked with Amanda from Paper Supply Station to get banners and the most perfect cupcake toppers. Amanda was super responsive, open to collaborating and super easy to work with.  She really helped to make my vision come to life and I highly recommend her shop to everyone planning a party of any kind in the near future :)

Natalie's outfit came from RSS Custom Creations run by the sweetest military couple, Sarah and Ricardo. I love love love the tutu and personalized shirt combo and was thrilled with how it come out! 

The kiddos requested to play outside which was totally fine by me.  So after lunch they ran wild in the yard for a little bit before coming in to paint frames and boxes. I was a bit hesitant with the painting but it's one of Nat's favorite things to do and I wanted her to love her party. All things considered, it was really fairly clean and Natalie is the child who made the biggest mess! 

After painting there was more outdoor play before cupcakes and presents.  All in all, I would say that Natalie had a very successful 3rd birthday party :)
