Mermaid birthday party ideas are trending and now is the time to make your birthday mermazing! Real mermaids would never have a mermaid birthday party that isn’t eco-friendly, which is why we specialize in eco-conscious mermaid birthday party ideas for you or your little mermaid to celebrate just like a real mermaid would. 


Balloons are harmful to our wildlife, so none of our mermaid birthday party options include balloons. We strongly discourage the use of balloons for your birthday party, as we have seen firsthand how they can be fatal for our sea life. Real mermaids celebrate their birthday parties without the use of balloons, so we should too. 


Eco-friendly mermaid birthday parties don’t have to be boring. Eco-friendly birthday parties can be even more fun, because at the end of the day, you know you didn’t contribute to the harmful effects that single-use plastic has on the environment. 


Our eco-friendly mermaid birthday kit option for at-home parties includes options such as biodegradable plastic utensils, paper tablecloth, invitations, thank you notes, party favors, decorations, candles, and even options for activities for children’s parties. We also offer great gift ideas for the mermaid lover who is turning another year older. 


Our most popular mermaid birthday party gift ideas are our children’s books, mermaid tails, and our adorable plush animals. Our hand painted resin starfish hair clips are also a great add-on that are trending with girl of all ages. For the ocean-lover in your life, check out our eco-friendly products which can be a lot of fun and help save our oceans, too. Check out all of these options on our online store. 


If you are looking to go out on the water and meet a real mermaid for your mermaid birthday party, we can accommodate that as well. We offer private tours that include a Mermaid of Hilton Head plush doll for the birthday girl or boy. 


These tours bring the mermaid birthday party out on a boat surrounded by wildlife, such as dolphins, and of course, the Mermaid of Hilton Head herself, Mermaid Nina! No-one loves to celebrate a mermaid birthday party more than our team. On this excursion, you will celebrate with Mermaid Nina, Sailor Scruffy, and Pinky Plankton, who will all be more excited about a mermaid birthday party than the birthday girl or boy themselves. 


If you would rather spend your mermaid birthday party on the beach amongst a few close friends, our Turn into a Mermaid Experience and photoshoot is just what you need. This experience is a lot of fun for kids and adults alike and is the perfect thing to do with friends. 


It is so much fun, you won’t even realize it’s a photoshoot. The best thing about this mermaid birthday party idea is that you will receive photos of the mermazing memories you and your friends created that will help you to remember the fun you had for years to come. 


Education, conservation, and making dreams come true is our motto and that doesn’t stop at our boat tours and photoshoots. It also extends to our mermaid birthday party options and we know that every mermaid lover deserves the most magical mermaid birthday party she could ever dream of, which we strive to make happen with our own mermaid magic. 


Even for adults, becoming older can lose its magic, but we like to bring out your inner child and make you feel younger on the day you turn a year older. Nothing can accomplish this quite like mermaid magic during your mermaid birthday party. 


Whether you want to go out on a boat, go to the beach, or just stay at home, we offer so many options to make your mermaid birthday party the most mermazing birthday party you have ever had. The Mermaid of Hilton Head team is committed to making your mermaid birthday party experience a magical one, and we take pride in making dreams come true for all of our guests. 


If need be, we can also tailor to your specific needs. All you have to do is let us know what you are looking for specifically and we will do our best to make the mermaid magic happen! We want your experience with us to be one of the best experiences you have ever had and the most magical experience for your child.
