A Fairy Garden Party! {Abigail’s 4th Birthday}

Good Morning Lovelies & Happy Monday! I’m so excited about a fresh start this week & about sharing my niece’s 4th birthday! We had a magical fairy party for her over the weekend & the details get me giddy!

My grandparents yard is full of gardens & tons of shady trees- just the spot a fairy would live,  so we had the party there. The trees created an absolute perfect backdrop some fairy dust! Scroll through for all the fairy party inspo!

You’ll see a couple more of these mossy log signs in the photos below, they were definitely my favorite thing we created for the party! I used these log slice tags I found at Hobby Lobby & hot glued on moss. I used my Cricut to cut words out of brown card stock & hot glued the words over the moss. This sign directed guests to our “fairy lounge” where you’d find hammocks, quilts spread on the ground & lawn chairs. The perfect spot for fairies to rest their wings!

The cake table was the showstopper! We layered different white cake stands (all from the Target dollar spot) over each other & used hot glue to attach coordinating felt ribbon (Dollar Tree). Faux flowers & greenery were tucked in between cupcakes & scattered along the table. An old quilt make a great, heavy tablecloth.

This centerpiece was easy to put together but makes a magical statement! I set a wired dome cage (not sure how to describe it?) over a large silver candlestick then filled it with moss & gold sequins. Butterflies & other critters were arranged inside & more were wired onto the outside too. The result is adorable for a kids party or grown up decor! Add fairy lights at night!

Birthday girl wore wings, of course & I made her this lovely flower crown, complete with butterflies! My sister in law purchased all of the faux flowers, butterflies & moss at the Dollar Tree. 

To make the floral crown I twisted together 2 pipe cleaners (perfect size for kids!) & wrapped it in floral tape. Using wire cutters, I removed all the flowers from the stems leaving just an inch or two. Next I began wrapping flowers on until I was happy with the fullness. I used hot glue to attach 3 butterflies throughout the crown. She was in love with it!! So was I…I might be making myself one later lol.

I brought out my doily/linen stash to add dainty touches along the tables. The weight also helped to keep the tablecloths down in the wind.

We also set up a craft table for the kids (& maybe some adults) to paint on fairy coloring pages. I printed a bunch of Precious Moments fairy coloring pages online, just do a Google search. Other activities included flower picking from the huge zinnia garden, the perfect fairy adventure.

You all won’t believe how easy it was to make this floral “A!” I cut up a cereal box to piece together the “A” & hot glued it in place. I’ll admit, other letters may be trickier. We removed flowers from the stems & hot glued each flower in place until it was covered. I went back in with bits of greenery to fill spots. A piece of twine held it in place around the tree. It’ll hang up in my niece’s room with just a tack. I seriously can’t believe how quick it was to make either! Wouldn’t it be fun to spell out words for an event?! I can see “2017” for a graduation tea!

Butterfly crackers & cheese were a hit along with butterfly pb&js. Pepperidge farm makes the butterfly crackers & you can use a cookie cutter for the cheese & sandwiches. This is the one we bought

 Delicious fairy popcorn was served & devoured! Use 2 bags of popped popcorn (we liked the Boom Chicka Pop lightly sweetened) & melt 1 package of white chocolate bark. Spread popcorn over parchment paper & drizzle chocolate on top. Add sprinkles quickly before chocolate hardens. Let set & scoop into a bowl for serving…so yummy! You can make this popcorn for all occasions, just switch up the sprinkle colors!

It was so hard to get any pictures of all the things we hung in the trees because wind! However, the impact was gorgeous! We strung up different banners, garlands, fabric & lace all through out the trees to create a magical fairy land. All the leftover flowers were hung from the trees as well. We tied 2 flowers onto the ends of a long piece of twine. Then threw one flower over a tall branch & pulled on the flowers until it was the right length. It was so simple this way! Get a ladder if the branches are too high. We hung balloons the same way- flower/greenery on one end & a balloon on the other. Throw the flower end over the branch & adjust. The balloons turned out looking like they grew off the vines- so pretty!

A shorter tree in positioned in the front of the party area welcomed guests! We set up her teepee here with a few pillows & balloons inside then arranged gifts on the opposite side.

Wings, party hats & more hung from this tree. We took pots of flowers from all over the gardens & placed them in groupings for the party. I also borrowed a few gnomes from my front porch; you can’t have a proper fairy party without gnomes!

I made this grapevine chandelier to hang over the food table. A little hot glue, moss, flowers & butterflies transformed the old wreath! The butterflies danced int he wind on the ribbons.

Party favors were rice krispy treats made with PEEPS we hoarded after Easter! We used a different color marshmallow for each layer to make colorful, yummy treats.
