Fairy Birthday Party Ideas for Girls: A Garden Fairy Birthday
A Garden Fairy Birthday for Little Girls
My daughter's fourth birthday just passed, and the theme she chose this year was "fairies". I got a little creative with it and decided to go with a Garden Fairy Birthday since she was born in the Spring. You can get inspired with a theme like this! Because it was Spring, I was able to find a ton of Garden Fairy Birthday decorations, favors, costumes, and more.
Little girls will love having a garden fairy birthday party, and little girls will love attending a garden fairy birthday party just the same. Invite your guests to the garden fairy birthday with simple pink floral birthday invitations, or get fancy with it and put the invitations in tiny "pixie dust bottles" (see amazon listing below). However you invite the guests to your little girl's garden fairy birthday party, it won't matter...those little pixies will be knocking down your door to get to the fairy party this year!
Here are some tips on garden fairy birthday decorating, favors, cake, and more.
Pink Fairy Birthday Party Decorations Ideas
Garden Fairy Birthday Decorations
So guess where I got all of my garden fairy birthday decorations? The Dollar Tree! I probably spent about thirty bucks when all was said and done on ALL of my daughter's garden fairy birthday party decorations this year. Not too shabby? Regardless of how much the party store is charging for a set of matching Tinkerbell tableware, tablecloths, and party favors, you can create your own and spend half less than what you would for a matching themed set from a high-priced party store.
Go to the Dollar Tree or your local dollar store that carries party supplies for your garden fairy birthday decorations, you won't be disappointed. Especially if your daughter's birthday is in the Spring, this is the perfect time to have a garden fairy birthday as all of the new Spring decorations and Easter decorations are in stores. You can use this to your advantage. For my daughter's garden fairy birthday party decorations, you can see I picked out all of her decorations in yellow and pink Spring colors. I found pink and yellow plates, pink and yellow napkins, and all yellow flatware. The cups were left-over from another party and were simply just clear plastic cups.
For the garden fairy birthday party centerpieces, I used a pink vase (that I already had in my cabinet) and put a fake bouquet of yellow daisies in it (also $1 from the Dollar Tree!) Then I found a bag of fake pink rose petals, which I scattered about the tables and counter-tops, etc. to add a special garden fairy birthday touch. It looked as though the garden fairies had been everywhere in my house and outside of my house that day! I also found straws with multi-colored flowers on the tips...how perfect for a garden fairy birthday party (also from the Dollar Tree).
When I couldn't find any fairy banners, I simply used a birthday party banner that had butterflies on it. Butterflies are perfect for a garden fairy birthday party theme, and you can also use floral cut-outs to post on different places on the walls. I also purchased flower cut-outs from the Dollar Tree that looked really cute on the walls in my house (the pack from the dollar store contained a couple large daisy cut-outs, as well as tiger lilies and more!) Stick with Spring colors, flowers, and butterflies and your garden fairy birthday party decorations will look adorable and thrill any little girl!
Garden Fairy Birthday Cake Ideas
If you cannot afford a highly-expensive baker or chef to put together the perfect garden fairy birthday cake, check out your local supermarket's selection of birthday cakes. Sometimes their selection is a lot broader of a range, and you'll usually pay a ton of a lot less money on your daughter's garden fairy birthday cake at a supermarket than a fancy bakery or home-company.
I purchased my daughter's garden fairy birthday cake from Publix, believe it or not. And it was actually perfect because they were the breakaway cupcakes instead of a birthday cake that had to be cut. The breakaway cakes are a lot easier to hand out and clean up. Check out the garden fairy birthday cake (breakaway style) to the right that we purchased for my daughter's garden fairy birthday for a little under $30.00. And she could keep the fairy too, as it is porcelain keepsake (or some similar material).
Garden Fairy Birthday Favors
All of the garden fairy birthday party favors were purchased at the Dollar Store, as well. I probably spent about an extra $15 on the party favors for 6 to 8 kids altogether. I found little decorative garden watering cans and placed a myriad of favors in each one. The blue and yellow were made for the boys and contained candy plus toy lizards and frogs. The pink were for the girls and contained candy necklaces, rings, pixie sticks, and pretend jewelry, etc.
If you can find miniature easter baskets, these would work well too for a garden fairy birthday party. Use your imagination, browse the aisles at your local dollar store or Wal-mart, and see what you can come up with. Just remember one thing...get into the mindset of a garden fairy and you'll be sure to put together a garden fairy birthday party that your daughter and her friends will love.
