This party was designed to entertain 4-5 year old girls.
My Invitations were made with a cricut machine and svg files
I made my decorations using a Cricut machine and SVG files for the pennants " BELIEVE" and the box holding the lip gloss and nail polish. I used 6" wide tulle spools to make the curtain entrance and 45" wide tulle cut in 10ft lengths to go around the outside of the picnic shelter. The buffet table was decorated with pink satin material, moss, greenery, and silk flowers and rocks with small plastic fairies standing throughout. I also made signs from foam board for my designated areas ie. "The Laughing Frog Diner", "The Gypsy Wings Workshop" and The Dragon Wings Beauty Shoppe" Letters for the signs were made with the Cricut and SVG files.
THE DRAGON WINGS BEAUTY SHOPPE:I made Fairy Tutus from 6" wide tulle,(instructions can be found on the internet--easy) purchased Fairy Halos from HaloHeaven.com and I purchased fairy wings the day after Halloween for each Fairy Costume. I also purchased face painting make-up and craft jewels for our dress-up activity.
For the Fairy Helpers I made Fairy Fascinators using a glue gun and plastic headbands, felt, feathers, and silk flowers! These were fun to make and wear!
READING ACTIVITY/TREASURER HUNT; I read "HOW TO FIND FLOWER FAIRIES" by Cecily Mary Barker" in a condensed version then had the girls find Paper Doll Fairies that I made out of cardstock, colored with pencils then copied and laminated with clear contact paper before putting them together. They were found at www.pheemcfaddell.com I LOVE this website!!
THE DRAGON WINGS WORKSHOP: My husband made wooden fairy doors with a scroll saw and I painted them in bright colors for each fairy to decorate with foam stickers while at the party. The parents were given "Thank You" notes from the fairies along with instructions on how to keep the magic of the party going at home.
THE FAIRY TREE: I made up little drawstring gift bags for each fairy containing a plastic ring, candy necklace and a fairy bracelet. Each child was given a small plastic bottle containing glitter and labeled "Fairy Dust" and they were instructed to sprinkle it around "The Fairy Tree". Later they returned to find the gift bags hanging in the tree. All were very excited about the fairies coming to that tree!
The girls also had a butterfly pinata which was a big hit. There were also a few other random, filler, activities i.e. hopscotch painted with acrylic paint on 12 x 12 blocks with stencils, hula hoops, and balls to toss through a hoop hanging from the tree.
FOOD: I ordered most of the food from my local grocery store. I had a lunchmeat/cheese tray and buns, fruit tray, and a Disney Fairy Cake. I ordered too much food. The girls ate very little. I also made a strawberry and pineapple punch.
MUSIC: I played music in the background on a CD by Gary Stadler called "Fairy Lullabies" I also used this music on the Smilebox SlideShow that I made with all the great photos!
