Henley turned 4 so we celebrated the only way we know how, as mermaids! Her party was planned for a wednesday but the weather wasn't looking good so last minute I changed it to the day before. I had to scramble to update all the guests, have the cake made a day early, and most importantly, make sure the mermaid was available a day early! The mermaid was not available!! **insert mom guilt of ruining her entire party with no mermaid** so I begged the party company for anything resembling a mermaid, they were able to send the sweetest older lady who was a face painter and agree to dress up in the mermaid costume and come as "Ariel's Grandmother" It totally worked! Henley bought it and loved every minute of her party!
The girls swam in the pool on the pink shell float, had mermaid makeovers curtesy of "Ariel's Grandmother" and took home mermaid tails and shell bikini tops. It was the perfect mermaid day!
