Enchanted fairy tale birthday parties
Little girls love magic, and if they could, they would move to the forest in a blink of an eye and live in harmony with magical forest creatures and fairies. It does not come as a surprise, though, fairies and magic are among favorite little girls’ things in the world, and no wonder they want to watch fairy cartoons, and pretend play enchanted forest all the time. If you would like to give a special gift to your little girl, prepare her an ‘Enchanted fairy tale’ themed birthday party.
Think about the very elements you want to incorporate in your party & have them printed on invitations. If possible, order different invitations & personalize each one with a little sticker or some glitter on the corners. Make sure there are mushrooms, flowers, stars, & little fairies printed on them. You can even choose to make them yourself if you would like: have flowers & leaves cut out of colored paper and glued onto the invitation with golden dots cut out of plain golden paper; as long as it is extraordinary, girls will love it.
If you have a garden you have more than half of your problems solved: little tables covered with white, pink, and green tablecloths, colorful cushions on small chairs, perhaps even a tent made out of your old curtains so that it looks like a baldachin over their dining table. Once again, mushrooms peeking out from underneath the chairs and every corner of your yard, plastic ivy over the table, pastel colored paper butterflies hanging on strings from the trees and glued onto their chairs, food served on wooden plates and fake moss covered platters. They will have no problem imagining that they are in a fairy tale. You can do this in your home as well, just attach paper flowers, leaves, and ivy over your curtains and door frames.
Fairies and princesses may not be the same thing, but they do have something in common: beautiful dresses and lovely little crowns.They can even decide if they would like to be princess fairies instead (a hint: yes, they all would). Have tutus, tiaras, and fairy wings prepared for all your guests, but the birthday girl should still be the star; allow her to wear her flower girl dress and make her wings and tiara a little extra special. They can also have magic wands with stars and straps of fabric attached so they can run around and cast spells.
Cake and snacks
You don’t have to make an exotic and extraordinary meal, you just have to be innovative and name the things you have prepared differently: poisoned candy apples from Snow white, pixie punch for soda, magic beans for jelly beans, fairy cupcakes with little edible fairies on top… You only need a bit of imagination. As for the cake, make it fit into the theme of the party perfectly: Princess or fairy cake with plenty of chocolate so they would grow strong and beautiful.
Besides the joy for seeing all those little girls mesmerized with the surroundings you’ve prepared, your heart will be filled with pride and joy once you see how happy they are to be real fairies for a day.
