Fairy Garden Party

My little ladies turned 5 in April and we had a magical day celebrating!  
*Warning - there are TONS of photos to follow!
The Fairy Garden Party

Tissue Poms were everywhere!
My mother hand painted tiny fairies for all the children!

These ruffles might be my new favorite thing!
 
The day's activities:
When the children arrived, they selected their wings and the girls received either a pink or orange flower for their hair
Then they headed outside to have their faces painted,
begin creating their own Fairy Houses and munch on some Magical Fairy Clouds!
 

We did a magical Fairy Treasure Hunt where the children listened to clues and found golden acorns, glass dew drops, fairy snacks, magical fairy coins and the bonus treasure was a garden gnome.  After completing the treasure hunt,
each child received their pixie dust!
The Grand Fairy House that held the glass dew drops
Finding the Magical Fairy Coins in the Ruffled Tree
Lining up to receive their Pixie Dust!

 We created a private dining area for the children down our side yard.
It was very special for them to get to eat alone!
And it allowed me to have it all set up ahead of time.

The Birthday Girls sat at the head of the table
The children drank pink lemonade from pink wine glasses
Lunch Menu:
(All the sandwiches were fairy size)
Pixie Butter & Jelly Flowers
Turkey & Cheese Snails
Robin's Egg Salad Butterflies
Fairy Berries
Fairy Garden Veggies & Dip
Fairy Dessert Table




 Fairy Desserts:
Magical Marshmello Wands
Fairy Flower Cookie Wands
Tiny Fairy Cakes
Lemon Blossoms
Fairy Kisses (cotton candy)
And although there were plenty of desserts, I had to have a small cake with candles for them to blow out!  It's our traditional birthday cake for the girls which was also my grandmother's favorite birthday cake - vanilla cake with lemon filling and whipped cream frosting.  (We ate it the next day for Easter!)
The children finished their day by receiving their wands and
a BIG thank you from the Birthday Girls!
Where to find some things:
1.  Fairy Graphics - http://meylah.com/cocoamint/store
2.  Wings - I looked all over and was amazed at how affordable these were, the variety to choose from, and their quality - http://www.haloheaven.com/angelwings.html
4.  Ruffles - again, my new favorite thing!  Super easy, inexpensive (cheap actually!) and adorable! - http://cupcakesandcutlery.blogspot.com/2011/02/cutest-ruffled-streamers-from-plastic.html
5.  I found many great things at the Dollar Store:
*the little tree centerpieces that held the fairies - they were Easter trees that I covered with orange wrapping paper and topped with a ruffle.  I took off the paper and used them the next day for my Easter centerpieces, covered with Easter ornaments!
*silk flowers
*glass rocks for dew drops
6.  My dear friend Hillary took many photos for me so that I could just enjoy my girls and the party!  xoxox
*Come back tomorrow for Yummy Summer!  Every Tuesday link up to swap Summer plans, ideas, crafts and recipes to do with our children and together let's make this a very Yummy Summer!

  13. Your kids’ birthday is just fabulous! I love how the fairy theme works for you. And having a scavenger activity can help keep the kids entertained all throughout. But then again, with such a magical party, boredom is the least of your worries. :)
