If you love fairy tales and are looking for a new theme for a summer garden party, then why not hold a Fairy Garden Party?
This makes a superb birthday treat for children or a fun-filled theme for a young at heart group of adults!
Fairy Garden Party Supplies
Things you might need include:
- Plates, cups and cutlery
Dress Up in Fairy Costume!
Add even more fun to the party by making it fancy dress! Make or hire costumes to wear. You could go for the classic faerie, the fairy princess or even a Gothic fey! You will need:
- A faerie dress
- Floral headband or tiara
- Sparkly shoes
Make Fairy Party Food
Try baking some homemade cupcakes, with lots of pretty toppings! Dainty sandwiches are also a great idea. You could even develop the theme by creating all the different foods in miniature, or provide fairy food such as honey, mead, nuts and edible flowers.
Fairy Party Entertainment
Games can include a fairies treasure hunt, best costume competition, magic tricks or even fairy-spotting! Cut out pictures of fairies and hide them all over the garden.
Fairy Party Decoration
The first thing that comes to mind when decorating for such a party is a trail of fairy lights! Twinkling lights add a magical element to any event, especially when the sun goes down. Along with ornaments or statues of fairies, try dotting miniature items around such as dolls house furniture or acorn cups, to make it look like the fairies are visiting!
These are just a few examples of how to have a fun-filled event. I can think of lots more fairy garden party ideas and have enjoyed putting them into practice over the years.
