How To Throw A Fairy Garden Birthday Party
It’s Springtime… the perfect time for a garden party. Or, more specifically- a Fairy Garden Birthday Party.
Ingredients For A Fairy Garden Birthday Party:
These party printables came from the TomKat Studio including invitations and adorable party circles that I used for a variety of decorations. I also love party printable designs from BellaGrey Designs.
3 Party Activities for Fairy Garden Birthday Party
Activity #1: Which Fairy Talent Are You?
Using the theme of Disney’s Pixie Hollow Fairies, I cut out emblems for each fairy talent: water, garden, light, animal and- of course- tinker talent. I attached each emblem to a paper bag containing an item related to that talent:
Water Talent: glitter water balls from Michael’s
Garden Talent: flower seed packets and small terracotta vase
Light Talent: mini kaleidoscopes
Animal Talent: small resin animals
Tinker Talent: toy tools
I hid the bags around the yard and had the kids hunt for them. Whichever bag they found, decided their fairy talent, similar to how Tinkerbell found her talent in the Disney movie:
Activity #2: Face Painting
If you’re fortunate enough to have an artist in the family to perform slave labor for you, like my oldest daughter, Rayana, a talented and creative individual who
loves is forced to help out with my projects, face painting is the perfect activity for a Garden Fairy Birthday Party.
Most of our young fairy guests wanted face paintings like butterflies, bunnies or flowers.
Activity #3: Take A Garden Home
Everyone gets to be a garden fairy today. A flat of flowers from the nursery, a bag of potting soil and individual vases creates a lot of garden fun. Each fairy guest got to pot their own flower to take home.
I found these adorable individual vases in the dollar bin at Target and felt like I struck gold- the perfect size, color… and price.
And now for the answer to the most-asked birthday party question, “where did you get your cupcakes?”
Was it our local celebrity baker from “Cupcake Wars”? Nope.
I got the perfect garden-themed cupcakes from Sam’s Club Bakery. I couldn’t have designed them any better myself. They may have only set me back $40, but these cupcakes could share the battlefield with their $100-opponents anytime; plus I got a mini-cake… bonus!
