Party Recap

My mum & I were asked to plan fairytale themed party to celebrate a friend's 40th birthday.
The birthday girl requested a fun but lovely, family friendly, evening supper party.
The colours were blues, silver and white with a bit of sparkle - we took our inspiration and 'feel' of the party from the custom made invitations by Cake Ink and threw it some fun with a 'fairytale hunt game' where guest had to find 20 fairytale themed items hidden around the party.
The candy buffet was a huge hit and the handmade and painted castle doorway for the guest to arrive through was loved by all.
Fairy lights galore and handmade bunting decorated the party with a whimsical and romantic feel.
A pop up cardboard castle for the kids to decorate with supplied stickers and coloured pens added to the nights events.

Party Highlights

  • Best Dressed

    Everyone wore a 'fairytale costume' - little red riding hoods, tinkerbell's, Cinderella's, Princess & princesses one guest (who happens to be a VERY tall man) even dressed as the bean stalk from Jack and The Beanstalk!

  • Desserts

    Birthday cake and candy buffet

  • Activities / Games

    'Fairytale Findings': fairytale themed items were hidden throuhout the grounds of the party. On arrival guests were handed a sheet with numbers 1-20 on it. They were to find the items and guess which fairytale it was from then write it down.

  • What People Ate

    A light supper of cocktail foods was supplied with a dessert/candy buffet too.
