If your little one likes to imagine that he or she is a mermaid or merman, or they really love the ocean, an ocean themed party may be the perfect idea for their birthday celebration. To help set the right tone for just such a party, make sure to send out fish party invitations from Tiny Prints.
On your invitations, ask guests to arrive in a water-related outfit (scuba suit, anyone?) to really set the mood. Scatter seashells, starfish, and stuffed fish toys on tables and throughout the party room to get a relaxed, beachy feel. You could even cover lights with blue cellophane to really capture that ‘under the sea’ lighting effect.
When throwing the perfect underwater party, the right food can help set the theme and make for a lot of fun for adults and kids alike. Goldfish crackers set out in glass containers that resemble goldfish bowls are a great snack for guests, along with gummy fish and sharks on top of ‘sand’ (brown sugar mixed with graham cracker crumbs). Offer blue gelatin cups with candy fish inside to resemble little aquariums, and have your guests drink ‘sea water’ by offering blue-colored juice or fruit drinks.
For party activities, have kids create their own jellyfish using curled ribbon and paper plates turned upside down, or they can design their own “message in a bottle” using old plastic bottles and a coloring station. For a girly spin, create mermaid crowns using paper templates, shells, and lots and lots of glitter!
"Beautiful card and I'm always impressed with the turn around time of Tiny Prints. So wonderful for a busy mother who is running behind on birthday planning"
"We were very pleased with our invitations! The cards were very professional looking and well made! If we ever need paper goods this is the place!"
"I chose to use this card for my son's high school graduation party invitation. I wanted a patriotic color palette since he is joining the military. I felt this was a more mature and elegant option than most graduation designs. I used the same fonts and colors as the example. I was able to add his senior picture to the back. This card turned out beautiful as do all that I order from Tiny Prints!"
"The quality of paper used, the colors, and the style helped make this invite for my little guys 4th birthday party too perfect. It captures his sweet and funny personality to a T. You always deliver perfection tiny prints, thanks!"
"We were so happy to find this card after searching & searching for a space themed non-alien type invitation. The design is adorable and I loved that I could include a pic on the front & back of my little astronaut! As always, tiny prints service is fast and the printing quality is top notch! Thank you!!"
