'Follow the fish to get to Arianna's party', read the cardboard fish welcoming guests at the entrance of the party location.

the underwater themed watercolor party invitation

Arianna's guests really enjoyed the PhotoBooth with a blue bubbles backdrop where they posed for a funny photo with the cute fish with their heads inside its cardboard fishbowl!

The party invitation featured our watercolor fish swimming in a deep blue sea with its fish friends and a starfish turned magic wand.

Before leaving they all had fun taking some pictures with the starfish monocle and fish shaped glasses props and some of them posted the images on Instagram too.

It took me several months of late night work and a few sleepless nights to complete all the decorations but I knew it was worth it the moment I saw the beautiful smile on my daughter face... Hope you enjoyed my diy underwater party!
