The enchanted woods was the setting of this sweet woodland fairy party. The table was covered with a green moss table runner, food was displayed on wooden “stumps” and personalized with wooden letters for the birthday girl, Elle. The girls enjoyed the most spectacular fairy feast on a table we designed to mimic the enchanted forest floor. Kate Landers comes up with some pretty amazing parties. This one takes the cake!! Kate describes the party….
The color-scheme was a mix of natural browns and greens, soft creams and whites, with the birthday girl’s favorite colors of pink and red
The tablescape was created using a floor length chocolate brown table covering, custom made toad stools were used for seating (yes, red with white spotted pillow tops and ivory “stems” straight to the ground!), and tableware consisted of our favorite Rice melamine soft pink tumblers and plates, along with red flatware and green cloth napkins folded under each plate.
Each guest was given a moss-covered basket in which they were to use to gather butterflies, acorns and flowers (faux flowers and butterflies, real acorns), most of which were hidden behind “fairy doors” at the bottom of trees
Activities included “musical toad stools” using the same toad stools the girls sat on while at the table, and a dance around a “Fairy May Pole” (a natural wooden rod stuck in the ground, with long streaming ribbons carefully adhered at the top).The girls more than anything just enjoyed prancing around in circles, weaving around each other–not really making any sort of pattern at this young age, of course!
In addition to decorating their “toadstool cupcakes” they also were given little birdhouses to take home to decorate.
Each fairy frock and garland was created using the same materials, all with the lovely green silk vines and pink flowers, but the colors of tulle and ribbon were all unique, so no two were ever exactly alike.
