I love woodland parties and combining fairies and the woodland theme is a match made in magical fairyland!
Jen had incorporated so many cool details in this party, some of my favorites are:
Flowers + pine cones – natural elements always look so good in parties!
The hanging floral backdrop
Fairy themed party food
Fairy flower crowns
The fairy garden kits are genius!
Pallet tables are brilliant!
Inspiration behind the theme: Our two daughters have wild imaginations and love playing dress ups, fairies is a popular favourite but we wanted something a bit more than just a fairy party so that’s how we decided on a Woodland Fairy Party. Perfect time for it, just coming out of autumn with all the leaves etc
The Most Memorable moment from the event: Would have to be making the fairy gardens. We hired two fairies to come and entertain the children which they loved! But they all really enjoyed getting their fairy garden kits which were personalised and creating a special garden to take home. We had one of the mothers tell us that her daughter kept rearranging the garden once she got home and put it outside for the fairies to come.
Tips from event: basically I collated all the ideas I really wanted and many weeks ahead just started chipping away at them. The best and most effective items or ideas often come from somewhere you would least expect. e.g. pallet seating for the children, lace table-cloth from trade me, birds nest to put the enchanted jelly beans in, driftwood from the beach etc. I put together a party box for my theme and as I collect the items I put them in there ready for the party, (even though it may be months away!!)
