Mermaid Craziness: DIY Mermaid Bows and Mermaid Italian Sodas

Hi friends!!

Someone in my family is REALLY into mermaids right now.  She's also turning 6 pretty soon, which means we've got a mermaid party in the works.  This means lots of mermaid party preparations...
I'm looking forward to showing you all of the party details in a couple of weeks, but I thought I'd share a few party tutorials with you today!

 Like these mermaid Italian sodas....

and mermaid bows!

Want to see how these came together? 

The bows were super easy.  Just a few rectangles of mermaid rectangles.  I folded them in half and added hot glue along two of the sides, leaving one side open.  Once the glue dried, I turned the bow inside out. 

I tucked in the raw edges, and added a little bit of glue.
Now that I had all raw edges tucked under and glued, I used a small piece of ribbon to tie the middle of the bow. I added a little bit of glue under the ribbon, and slipped in the hair clips.
I cut off the ends of the ribbon and that was it!

Ok, now about those mermaid drinks! 

Here's what you'll need:
  • sparkling water or club soda
  • Torani peach syrup
  • blue food coloring
  • whipped cream
  • sprinkles

 Ok guys, these drinks came about as quite a bit of trial and error.   The order is important here! Start with adding your sparkling water to your glass. Then add a little bit of the syrup to the side of the glass.  It will settle towards the bottom. Then add just one drop of food coloring.

Add a little bit of whipped cream.    I added sprinkles to the top--I especially love the little sprinkles that look like little pearls!  So fun!
Yum!  Right?  I'm excited to share more mermaid fun with you soon! 

Have a great week everyone!!
