I had the pleasure of attending a fairy party on the weekend and wanted to share some of the sweet details with you. Our little friend Tara turned 5 and wanted a fairy themed party, so inspired by the recent Disney movie “Secret of the Wings”, her Mom created a little winter fairy wonderland! Since the movie is about how the fairies from different seasons come together, the entry way of the house was decorated in warm weather decorations, and as you moved into the living room it turned into a winter fairyland.
Heather used moss for the table cloth, and little fairy toys and toadstools, and flowers. It was so cute.
The living room was the beginning of winter land. The Christmas tree was all decorated with snowflakes, icicles and snowy owls, just like in the movie.
When they first arrived they were each given a different fairy doll. They looked so cute in mason jars with faux snow in the bottom, each one labelled with their name and a little fairy wand tucked in.
The first activity was to paint a fairy house for their new fairies. Heather found bird houses at the dollar store that fit the fairy dolls perfectly.
While the paint dried, the kids were invited to choose from treats to enjoy while they watched the movie together. Heather did such a great job on the table.
She hung snowflakes and mushroom decorations from the light, and used mini Christmas trees as a centre piece.
I loved the little place settings, with large snowflake decorations as a charger, and sweet little snowflake cupcakes at each spot. Aren’t the mason jar glasses with striped blue paper straws sweet.
The food was all small, little, fairy sized treats.
There were homemade pink donuts with sprinkles.
Aren’t these little mushrooms sweet, made of mini marshmallows held with frosting glue to little raspberry tops, all nestled in the green coconut grass.
There were sweet little jam sandwiches cut into flower shapes, and “fairy bread”. I loved the little nest cookies, with candy eggs.
My very favourite were these little meringue treats. They tasted like a mini pavlova. Heather wanted to make a fairy sized meringue treat so she had the great idea of sandwiching together two little pink meringues, that she baked, with raspberry whipped cream in the middle. They were so, so good. My favourite for sure.
She also made chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, and used a little snowflake kit to decorate them.
My other favourite, were the little pink cream puffs. Heather filled them with cream, and topped them with pink frosting and a raspberry. They were delicious.
After everyone made their little plate they sat down in the living room to enjoy and watch the movie together. The entertainment unit was draped in snow and all set up for the kids to enjoy the movie together with their picnic snack in front. Heather used this fun forest rug from Ikea.
The kids sat on little toadstool cushions.
In the living room there was also popcorn with fairy dust (star happed sprinkles), crackers and snowflake happed cheese, and fruit kebab fairy wands.
After their snack they worked on candy necklaces, in the perfect Tinkerbell green, and periwinkle blue colours.
After the movie the paint was dry on their fairy houses and it was time to decorate with silk flower petals, snowflakes, paper flowers, gems and glitter glue. They had so much fun creating the perfect little fairy houses.
After Happy Birthday and presents everyone was sent off with their fairies, houses, fairy wings, glow in the dark fairy wands, and the these cute little packages of candies. Heather found the free download for them here.
Happy Birthday Miss. Tara, with you in it, life really is a party!
