Mermaid + Merman Under the Sea Summer Party

This week I knew exactly what I wanted to create when I sat down to make this week’s party idea board. I wanted something that would be fun for kids, boys and girls, and would be a hit this summer. I came up with the idea of having a mer-people (that’s mermaids and mermen) inspired party. Naturally, it would be fantastic if this was based around a beach location, but I think a pool party would be just as fun.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Extravagant Summer Wedding in Green Florals

This luxurious summer wedding I’ve dreamed up is one that I consider to be the top of the modern wedding vibe, but still keeps elegance and wow factors at the peak of your mind throughout the event.

This wedding not only has a gorgeous outdoor ceremony, with linens dramatically draped over the alter, but it also has 3 other stops it takes the guests to. After the ceremony – the guests head indoors for a cocktail hour, welcomed as they walk through the doors by strands of hanging orchids. After cocktail hour, they move out to a garden in a complete oasis of green. Green florals and silks are cascading and covering every inch of your visual field. No area is left bare. After a scrumptious meal, the music of a local band in the background, and good conversation of tablemates, it’s time for guests to move into the tent for the party to continue into the night! This tent has been transformed into the ultimate custom party lounge, complete with bars, desserts, lounge areas, and of course the hottest music played over a dance floor complete with club lighting.

This is what I had in mind:
