The colors and mermaid theme were inspired by believe it or not, a diaper! Miss Bee's parents use cloth diapering, the kind that come with super cute covers and this one was a mango-ish orange diaper with mermaids in purple, teal/aqua, pink... so you can see where these colors came from.
I made the tissue tassel like like I did here and the "ONE" letters came from Target.
A cluster of balloons waiting to go home with little ones, tied to the cutest little wooden Adirondack chair ever.
Another view of the food table... I bought these tissue fringed garlands online at Shop Sweet Lulu after seeing this idea to mimic the idea of water and waves... perfect for a mermaid party.
Miss Bee was pretty unsure of the whole cake thing...
Thinking she'd pick it up...
Only to have all of us react with oohs and aahs, which stopped her in her tracks!
So in one short year we went from this little baby...
To this little girl! Still so serious... but with a wee bit more hair than last year!

Looking forward to spending another birthday with my Bee this upcoming weekend. This year's party theme won't surprise most folks... but you'll have to wait to see what it is... and I promise, it won't be a year in the making this time!
