A Fairy Birthday Party

My Lila turned six this month and I had to share our fairy birthday party. We love fairies and we are well equipped for this major event. Here is the birthday girl...my little fairy.


Each girl/guest must become a fairy before they enter the party. We bought cool glitter makeup and their favor was a flower headband, tutu skirt, and rainbow fairy wings. They must be fairyitized to enter the party.


While each girl was magically turning into a fairy we printed out fairy coloring pages from our website. You always have to keep these little fairies busy.
When all they fairies were ready they could have a glass of pixie punch and a fairy pretzel want. For the punch we took pink lemonade, added a touch of lemon/lime soda, and topped it off with rainbow sherbet. The pretzel wands consisted of pretzel sticks dipped in pink chocolate and white glitter sprinkles for an added whimsical touch.


Game time....we played a couple of games that were a big hit
Flower Drop: I got 3 silk flowers and a glass vase. The girls stood on chairs, put the flower to their nose and then had to land the flowers into the vase.

Find the fairy: I split the girls into two teams, each team was given a picture of a fairy to find. The first team that found their hidden fairy won the game. I just need to find a good hiding place for the pictures.

Pin the wings on the fairy...you all know this game.
Note, all girls won a prize for each game even if they didn't actually win. I love the dollar store....chalk, glow sticks, and stickers are so affordable!

Next we opened presents, so fun. Now, where do I put all this stuff?

Finally....Cake. My mother (grandmother fairy) of course made the cake. I loved the roses and the edible glitter. We used one of my fairy houses as the cake top, it really turned out cute.






That was a fun two hours. I think all had a magical time. Happy Birthday Fairy Lila!

  3. Now that is too cool! I am so jealous lol, they didn't have such fun parties when my daughter was young nor when I was young (now that was a long time ago!). I believe your daughter and her friends had a very special day!

  6. That sounds like the most fun! I think I'd like a fairy party too (might have to switch out the lemon lime soda for champagne, lol) You are certainly lucky to have such a lovely fairy princess living there. Give her a birthday hug for me.
