Not sure about you, but there’s a very high chance this special girl’s six-year-old birthday party is WAY cooler than any party we’ve had…ever. Of course, when your mother is Alexis of The Shift Creative, you’re guaranteed a day that’s anything but boring! Take, for example, the color scheme: no pink here! Just shades of blues, purples, and iridescent highlights. Alexis asked Jacquelyn at Beijos Events if she’d lend a hand, and her response?
Obviously, I couldn’t say no! Royale of But First Party and Alexis were planning Sophia’s 6th birthday party and asked if I wanted to help style it. I jumped at the chance to work with these fellow creatives and boy, was it fun! Alexis took the idea of a mermaid party and made it her own. She’s known for her creative, outside-the-box installations and this time she truly outdid herself!
Tade Creative captured all the fun so let’s dive in!
We are HERE for all the mermaid puns!
How perfect are the florals by Mustard Seed Floral? They look like something you’d find living under the sea!
Dishes for Fishes
The tabletop (and rentals from Meri Meri) made for a darling little display.
Girls Just Wanna Have Sun
Our six-year-old selves are screaming! And, to be fair, so are our adult-age selves. Alexis crafted this sea-inspired installation so guests could actually stand between the waves!
Look at this stuff, isn’t it sweet?
We’ll just say it—Ariel’s grotto has nothing on this dessert display.
It’s a birthday cake totally redefined by Sugar Crush Sweets! Aren’t the cute little desserts so perfect? Those cookies are by Cookies by Heather :)
Not to mention Alexis’ wildly creative underwater wall installation!
Of course, the hosts were going to shell out some take-home goodies for the guests!
Total stunner! Happy birthday, Miss Sophia!
