ALL those mermaid details

Hey guys! So if it isn’t obvious enough lol, I love planning parties for my children! I seriously look forward to doing it every year!! I recently posted on my Instagram account @miabastille asking if anyone would be interested in a detail post about Savannah’s mermaid party decor we had for her 4th birthday a few weeks ago on July 21st and a couple people said yes so I thought… yep lets blog it! …. As much as I daydream about being that Pinterest worthy mother though (HOW does one do that btw?) i’m not LOL but I really try! Honestly I bought some mermaid things that I was super excited to use and I was so busy decorating before the party I forgot to even use them!!! Oh well though, none of that ends up mattering anyway! All that truly matters is the wonderful look of excitement on Savannah’s face when she walked outside of the house and into her party… there’s no better feeling than seeing that beautiful smile of hers!!

Between the balloons there is a Palm leaf garland hanging, it was from Target by the brand Spritz. The aqua, blue and purple confetti balloons off to the left were purchased off Etsy from the shop OhhHowCharming. Pink balloons on the right (not mermaid balloon) were from Target.

Savannah was oh so excited about this life size mermaid balloon… I won’t lie to you though it was a pain. I’m not sure if there was a tiny a hole in it somewhere or what the problem was but I could not for the life of me get it to hold helium and stay full but it showed up to the party whether it wanted to or not!! I purchased it off Etsy from the shop CreativeExpres.
mermaid confetti
*This is not my photo* But I forgot to use this confetti at her party and still wanted to give it some credit because… isn’t it THE CUTEST stinkin’ confetti you ever saw??  I got it off the Etsy shop named Lilpawspaperart !

Family photos are the best kind of photos. ❤ I had a few people ask where my dress was from,  I found it at Target (of course) and it was actually a swim suit cover up!

Here are some of my favorite photos from Savvy’s party!
