Ellie Jean turns three under the sea, part 1

Mermaid invitation

My daughter, Ellie, turned the big THREE at the end of January.  We celebrated with mermaids, her current favorite, and the twelve year old in me was over the moon!  Ariel, has always been a favorite, so creating an underwater wonderland was a-ok with me!  I've always loved the puzzle aspect of party decor.  Coming up with a vision, and then figuring out how to make that vision come to come to fruition with balloons, construction paper, fabric and frosting.  And hopefully, if it all goes well, a little magic gets created in the end!  Isn't that really the best part of being a parent?  Getting to create that look of wonder on your child's face? 

In the past, I've been terrible at taking pre-party pictures, so this time, I made it a point to pull out the camera before the guests arrived. Grab your snorkel and join us!
