11 Mermaid Party Food Ideas

Mermaids have been super popular over the last couple of years, so mermaid birthday parties have been pretty popular as well. I love the mermaid party food (or under the sea party food) that goes along with the mermaid or under the sea birthday party theme. They’re really fun and make for whimsical food recipes.

I’ve collected some of my favorites below!

Serve party drinks creatively, as shown with these lemonade drinks from Kara’s Party Ideas.

These are Sea Glass Layered Jell-O Bars by Ever After in the Woods. Not only do they look delicious, but the colors match perfectly with a mermaid birthday party theme.

I love this “seaweed” idea by Catch My Party. You can use green Sour Punch Straws as seaweed on a dessert table.

Another great idea by, Catch My Party, is a tray full of sugar cookies in some brown sugar for sand. You can find under the sea cookie cutters here.
