Update: All the pics for this theme are up on Facebook now! View them here.


Remember that “Woodland Fairy Birthday Party” that I asked for some help with a couple weeks ago? Here’s a sneak peek of how it turned out – many thanks to HWTM readers and all the fantastic ideas that you posted!

More pics of this party will be available soon, but I just got them back and couldn’t resist posting a little sneak peek right away…starting off with the most ridiculously cute pic of them all – the fairy princess herself! {above}

After really diving into the details of this party, I realized that there are tons of routes you can take with a fairy theme… and tons of ways to bring it to life! This party ended up looking more “enchanted” than “woodland” style to me, so I’ve renamed it from the original post, but I still think it would be fun to explore the woodland-style version in the future and really play up the ivy, wood/branches, old-fashioned lanterns, fireflies, and other “Peter Pan” type elements.

Inexpensive details like sheer ribbon, metallic pipe cleaners, and paper stars added a touch of whimsy to the place settings…

The birthday signs matched the digital invite, and dragonflies, butterflies, twinkle lights, and giant paper “flowers” (a.k.a. Martha Stewart’s pink tissue poms) transformed the birthday girl’s backyard into an Enchanted Forest!

How cool is this giant tree?! It’s pretty magical all on it’s own!

  1. i was so happy to find this post. our family and most of our friends are out of state so we are having a really small party at home. i still wanted to make it special with the details. i fell in love with the images and hired someone to design a replica of the invites and poster. on the poster i had my daughter’s name included as well and even had stickers made. ours is more a fairy garden theme but your party images are really what set us of on the right path. thanks for sharing!

    This is so beautiful. Where did you find the placemats??

    Yalitza –
    They’re actually scrapbook paper sheets – and I got them at a local scrapbook store, but also saw a couple of the designs at Michaels recently. I can’t remember the brand name, but if I can remember it or am back at Michaels soon and see it I’ll let you know!
