    I got the idea from another party on catchmyparty.com site. I changed the colors and made it 2 layer. Took Dream Cakes the picture and they made a white cake with fondant icing.

  • Hanging Poms

    Decorations

    Also got this idea from another party on catchmyparty.com. Changed colors and ordered the poms from Paperwhite Designs. Huge hit at the party. Although attaching them can be difficult. :)

    Awesome to work with! She made this a size bigger than what she had listed (I needed a size 5) and it is wonderful! Great sewing and it is adorable!

  • Waterslide

    Entertainment

    I also rented the bubble machine and 2 extra tents with the giant waterslide. Not sure I would use them again for renting, but nonetheless, the party turned out great!

    I love the mermaid tutu dress. What are the scales on the top made of? I tried going to the Etsy site, but it appears the store is temporarily closed. I would love to make this for my nieces birthday party.

    Carrie M wrote:

    I think the scales were made out of some type of organza fabric. Very sheer, but almost stiff as if they were sprayed with starch perhaps. Not sure exactly. But it was many circles overlapping each other and I believe they were just glued down if I remember right. Sorry I can't be more help... I sold the outfit or I'd look at it again. Good luck!

    Thank you! I thought it might be organza. I am working on it tonight and hope it turns out.
