Although this took some prep work ahead of time, it was a super inexpensive theme to work with, as it pulled in a lot of natural elements that I was able to utilize for free! I loved the earth tones and punches of red from the toadstools, but we were able to incorporate the girly pink and purple colors as well through fairy facepaint, tutus, wands, and wings. It was a lot of fun to plan for and I think the girls had a lot of fun as well! Next year~pool party!
Toadstool cookies, chocolate cupcakes with bite-sized toadstool cookies, cake, and ice cream
Each child wore and took home their own fairy wings, tutu, wand, and bag from the Granola Bar
Activities / Games
We went on a fairy walk, looking in the trees/shrubs for tulle wings left behind from the fairies the night before, we also found a couple of fairy houses and other things like buttons, etc. they had left behind
When we suprised our b-day girl with a fairy facepainter! She is a little artist herself, so she was very excited!
What People Ate
The gnomes and fairies had Pixie Pb&J's, Reg. Chips (Chipmunk Chips), Hedgehogs (donut holes dipped in chocolate/rolled in Chocolate jimmies), Fairy berries, Toadstool Cheese (string cheese topped w/ a cherry tomatoe halves), Gnome walking sticks (choc. dipped pretzel rods w/ sprinkles)
What People Drank
Pink Lemonade, water, etc.
Our local Publix Bakery always has an impressive case full of stuff. I talked to them about doing the tree stump cake and they were totally open to it and it was exactly what I asked for. I couldn't have asked for anything better at only $11.99
Kym was wonderful and the fairy facepaint was beautiful! The girls literally stood around watching her paint everyone else's face! Worth every penny!

Very willing to make whatever changes I needed, as it was hard to find a woodland fairy birthday party invitation. Quick and since I got the file, I could print the amount I needed!
