A 4th Mermaid Birthday Party Part I - The way we do it in Hermanus!

We had a fabulous midweek party this week, in the Hemel & Aarde Estate, a housing gem of Hermanus! This is to say the least -
Oh Wow, we were all lost for words actually
Little Eryn, is one lucky girl, as her mommy Elzette went all out for her fourth birthday party -
The beautiful mermaid cake!
The details of this event was better than the best Pinterest versions;
see for yourself below:

The table outside was set under a blue "water" gazebo, it was 
jam-packed with delicious homemade treats - Most of the items displayed had quirky names, suggestive of the magical world you would experience under water if living with mermaids, floating jellyfish lanterns the works! 




A lower table was set for the kiddies to have lunch - 'Golden Nuggets and pizza slices all carefully packaged - 
Each guest also received a gift bag filled with all sorts of exciting presents, hair clips, bubbles and other toys
Mermaid branded water bottles, and juice were served as drinks



Each guest could also take home one of these gem bottles, filled with treats

Flounder's Delight - Delicious condensed-milk, and bubblegum Jelly puddings  

Magic Coral - Popcorn with white chocolate and marshmallow coating


These were just out of this world, I mean really?!? Have a look at the detail of this beautiful artisan cookie!


One thing we are pretty sure off now, is that Elzette loves throwing parties, and this was just the children section! Part II will follow soon!

This is truly her passion, and with such a display of brilliance; who wouldn't want to hire her for their own party!

You can reach Elzette here; give her a shout - 
Also share with all your friends!
