The bulk of the decor came from Nick Jr.'s party printables online - party hats, add-ons for party blowers, a birthday banner, hanging decor, a pin-the-tail-on-Molly (a character from the show), a photo poster for the guests, and a table centerpiece.
Each guest is going to get a copy of their photo tucked in Em's thank-you note to them.
I picked up this Little Mermaid tutu kit from Joann's, which fit the theme/color scheme perfectly.
Girlfriend couldn't WAIT for her friends to arrive. She kept chanting, "Let's get this party STARTED!" while running around the house and squealing in delight.
I ran with the under-the-sea theme. Thanks to Pinterest, I was inspired to create a shark fruit bowl.
An octopus in hummus.
And these bears on a jello island.
The guests arrived -- eight of her preschool gals pals and one of our fav Portland baby girls -- and the squealing commenced. They ran through the house, tossed balloons, played with Em's toys, and snacked on the goodies.
I wrangled them for Pin-The-Tail-On-Molly, and it was hilarious to see so many of them pull their blindfolds down before sticking the tail. Cutest cheaters ever.
I ordered a custom edible photo frosting sheet from Etsy and took it to a local bakery. It was a hit, especially with the birthday girl.
I Like To Move It" from the movie, Madagasacar. Apparently it's a big hit amongst all her classmates. Then we sent them on their way with adorable and delicious sugar cookies from Jenny.
Em has a blast with her friends, and we were so glad to have them here to celebrate.
