Fairy Party Ideas
There are so many different ways of creating a unique and delightful Fairy Party.
Here are some ideas to help make your parties exciting and delightful.
Beautiful fairy invitations and matching partyware are available from party and fairy shops or you can be creative with your computer using fonts and graphics to create your own fairy party invitations. Search your stationery shop for beautiful fairy and flower stationery. Take a photograph of the birthday child dressed up in all her fairy finery and include the photo in the invitation. Involve your child with creating the invitations by letting her decorate them with glitter and fairy charms.
Write a magical verse such as
Far, far away in a magical place
Every fairy attending the party will need a wand, so send Fairy Wand Invitations. Visit your local party shop and buy cardboard star cutouts and balloon sticks. You can hot glue ribbon to the sticks, spray them silver, or dip them in glue and glitter. Glue the star to the balloon stick and add some pretty curling ribbon. Print out your invitations and roll them up and tie them to the wand with a pretty ribbon and hand deliver to all your guests.
Make your invitations into a garland necklace, use coloured paper, cut into flowers, use straw strips between each flower then with each separate paper flower write important information for the big day, make sure you mention they must wear their colourful garland necklace on the day.
Create flower shaped invitations with all the petals folding down in to a circle so when opened it is like a blooming flower. Inside it could say
Come to where the fairies roam, a beautiful forest they call their home, we will dance and play, to celebrate …….. Birthday
Buy artificial flowers in different styles, a different flower for each child (lily, tulip, rose, gardenia, iris, sunflower, daffodil, daisy) make up a cardboard tag and tie it with ribbon to the stem, stating the date of the party, the time and the name of the flower which would be their flower fairy name. Invite each guest to come as their own flower fairy on the day.
Create a fairyland for your child with easy, simple props. Scour your Christmas decorations for fairy lights. Combine these with tulle and ribbons. Tulle is very inexpensive and can be purchased from any discount fabric store. Create swags over windows with delicate fairy lights peeping from behind, with more swags on the party table. Simple gather your tulle and tie with curling ribbon or fishing line to create rosettes. Add ivy and butterflies and make bows out of tulle in contrasting colours.
Indoors or out, you can create a magical fairy grotto using a shade tent. Swag with tulle, use artificial flowers and lots of ribbons and bows to decorate. Drape a mosquito net from the centre of the tent and pull up into the corners. Use whatever greenery and flowers you have growing in your garden to decorate, add some potted palms. Set your table in the centre of the grotto, scour your linen cupboards for a large white sheet or tablecloth, swag with tulle. Use miniature balloons (5”) in soft pink colours to decorate your swags.
Tie tulle around your chairs and tie into a big bow at the back, have tiny balloons cascading down on silver ribbons. Let your imagination run riot. Fairy themed tableware will complete the magical grotto. Create paper mache toadstools in advance, your child can decorate them for the big day. Have cardboard cut out stars on the floor – fairy footsteps.
Hire a helium cylinder and inflate purple pink and white balloons, have them floating from the ceiling, use long tulle or organza ribbons to hang to the floor, or silver curling ribbons, add cardboard cut out stars and butterflies. Sprinkle fairy dust (fine glitter) everywhere. For an extra touch of magic, hire a battery operated bubble machine.
Make fairy wands as for the invitations, but give the children extra glass beads and lots of ribbon to decorate them. Make sure you have adult supervision if using hot glue guns.
Buy tinsel garland from craft stores to make fairy halo circlets – cut one piece of garland large enough to fit around a child’s head, twist the ends together, cut several pieces of curling ribbon in pink, purple and silver, fold in half over the back of the circlet and secure in place with a staple.
Make Jingle Fairy Bracelets – buy silver bells and pretty beads to be strung on elastic strings, finish of with delicate satin ribbons.
Buy tiny dolls from your craft stall and artificial gerberas. Supply each child with some tulle to dress their fairy, then glue them to the centre of the gerbera to make a sleeping fairy child.
