Inviting Fairies to a Fairy Garden Party

In the run up to your party, go out into your fairy garden and ask the fairies to bless the coming event, and invite them to join you. Fairies love dancing, music and general revelry, so make sure you have lots of games and entertainment!

If the fairies accept your invitation, you will most likely see signs of them at your party. A ring of mushrooms may spring up out of nowhere next to your eating area, or birds and butterflies will come closer than usual to you and your guests!

If there is anyone musical at your party, play! Fairies love to play pipes, flutes and other instruments, and will be fascinated by your merry-making.

Dress Up in Fairy Outfits!

A true fairy garden party has to include fairies! Let your little ones have great fun dressing up in these beautiful fairy costumes. Sparkly adorned dresses and glittery wings, with fairy crowns and fairy wands... alternatively, make your own outfits or accessories. A twig and berry crown looks amazing!

And Don't Forget the Most Important Aspect of a Fairy Garden Party...

The garden! Place your eating area close to some beautifully scented flowers like honeysuckle or jasmine (even better, grow them around a gazebo!), and next to something eye-catching and soothing, such as a water feature if you have one.

Think about shade, as not everyone is a sun-worshipper - perhaps setting the table near a much-loved tree?

For play, games and dancing, choose a spot where there are some strongly scented bushes such as lavender or rosemary - whenever someone brushes against them they will release a beautiful aroma!
