An Enchanted Fairy Party for Molly!
So you’ve got the perfect theme in mind, an Enchanted Fairy party, you know it will be magical and now you’re after all the BEST ideas to put it together, right? Well, you’re in the right place!
Take a look at this wonderful party we helped our client Brittni, with, for her daughter Molly who turned 6. Read on as we go through all the whimsical details!
When choosing a backdrop, either for behind the cake table or as a photography backdrop, there are many different Eco friendly and DIY ideas to try!
You could use a bedsheet against a wall or fence- stick with lighter colours like pastels, whites and florals are best for an Enchanted Fairy party.
Another great idea is using the garden as a backdrop! The greenery and flowers would make the perfect setting for an enchanted fairy party, or you could also create a ribbon wall as our client did!
A Ribbon wall is typically strips of fabric or ribbon tied to a string or rod at whatever length you like. You can get more info on this in our Fb group here: www.facebook.com/groups/ecofriendlypartyplanningideas
Here, our client has tied strips of tulle to a garden arch to create the most magical take on the ribbon wall!
“I’ve always been a big lover of creating parties, so was so excited when Molly asked for an enchanted fairy party. I wanted to go as eco friendly as I could, so enlisted the help of some small businesses.Mum, Brittni Davies.
Steering away from the traditional balloons, I decided to create a tutu inspired photo backdrop with Partyora’s eco-friendly confetti. Being an outdoor party, a garden arch frame from Bunnings was perfect to tie strips of long tulle to. I then chose some pastel pink and blue tulle and tied smaller strips just with knots down each strip to create a layered effect.
I used pink and purple tinted paper to create some hanging gardenia. This idea and template came from @abbi_kirsten_collections “
There’s nothing like fabric napkins and glassware to bring a touch of class to your next event! Soft pinks, fresh florals and some circular cake frames by The Gathering Bee, were used to style tables and desserts for this party and the effect was simply stunning!
“Instead of using disposable serve ware, we decided to enlist the help of @the.gathering.bee who created some amazing tablescapes for our desserts”-Brittni Davies
Sometimes the simplest cake decoration works a treat! If you’re making your own cake or ordering a plain cake to decorate yourself, why not try some of these DIY cake toppers next time:
*Fresh fruit – Strawberries, berries, figs are all popular choices
*Fresh or edible flowers / petals
*Dried florals or petals
*Sprinkles – the options here are endless!
*Chocolates or lollies
*Reuse any small decor items or figurines to match a theme or colour palette (as seen in this pic!)
*Reusable cake toppers made from natural materials such as macrame toppers or felt ball toppers (available on our site!)
*Wooden cake toppers, Beeswax candles – safe, non-toxic and reusable (Tap for details)
“My mum made Molly’s birthday cake, decorating it with some little fairies, and some mushroom houses I’ve had since I was a little girl. The Partyora beeswax candles were the sweetest touch to finish off the look. “-Brittni Davies.
The Party outfit
“When it came to deciding on the kid’s costumes, we headed straight to their own cupboards! Molly owned the sweetest little pink dress with embroidered flowers which we paired with some ballet tights and shoes she was gifted. To add some gold touches, we used a jewelled headpiece from the costume box and I decided to spruce up some old fairy wings we had lying around.
Molly’s big brother Archie was wearing an old adult brown shirt, which I cut triangles out of the sleeves and hemmed areas, tied around the waist with burlap ribbon over some green school tights. His hat was a keepsake we had gotten from the Abbey Medieval Festival a few years ago.
Her baby brother Hamish wore a mushroom sweater from Best and Less and a square of red felt I shaped into a cone for a hat.-Brittni Davies
The Fairy wand
Dressing up the birthday boy or girl is great fun for all ages. For a fairy party like this one, let them be little enchanted elves or fairies with hats or crowns. They make the perfect accessory for book week dress ups and First Birthday Cake smash too. Once you’re finished, keep them in the dress-up box for hours of imaginative play!
The outfit was finished with this adorable custom felt wand, handmade by Schooza, view their gorgeous range of handmade accessories and dress ups here:
The Party games
When it comes to prizes for party games, think ethically sourced, natural materials and Australian handmade! The pass the parcel is still a favourite for kids big and small. You can fill them with eco party prizes!
Whilst it’s sometimes hard to find plastic-free options, if you’re prepared with a list of items, it can stop you from impulse buying shiny, plastic objects that will break easily and end up in landfill!
Here are some of my favourite eco prizes:
*Colouring in books
*Small wooden puzzles
*Wooden playdough stamps
To name a few! View the Partyora Pass the parcel sets here: https://partyora.com/product-category/eco-party-products/eco-party-supplies/party-games/
“For the activities, we created a ‘find the fairy’ game, using some peach acrylic blanks we had at home and metallic Gold fairy silhouettes I cut out on my Cricut. These fairies were hidden throughout the garden for all the girls to find. Definitely inspired by Easter egg hunts!
Our Partyora gift bags were the perfect complement to use to pop our prizes into.-Brittni Davies
Our second activity was a pass the parcel using the re-usable set from Partyora, which was a big hit. Not only is it so much better for the environment, but it made our clean-up 1000x easier!”
The Donut Decorating Party Activity
Do you remember that donut on a string party game? Well, this is a Donut making activity that’s even better than trying to eat the donut off a piece of string!
These wonderful party kits by Hungry Homer Donuts contain all you need to make, bake & decorate your very own donuts! View them here: https://partyora.com/product-category/eco-party-products/party-packs/
It’s no secret that kids love a good party activity and these kits have it all, fun, creativity, sweetness and best of all, they’re edible!
“Our final activity for the day was decorating Donuts using Hungry Homer Donuts new party kit! Our decorations were tailored to our theme and we pre-baked the donuts the day before. Our little fairy guests LOVED decorating their own creations with edible glitters and flowers, before popping them into little cardboard boxes to take home as their favours. Everything in the donut party kit is biodegradable, including the little plastic tubs of glitter.
We collaborated with @kin.copy.co to create the sweetest little instructional poem to pair with our donuts, which I wrote on a little blackboard stand to pop on the table.Our party was such a success, and we couldn’t have done it all without the help of some great little businesses. Can’t wait for the next!”-Brittni Davies.
A special thank you to @Brittadaviescreative for her wonderful photography! It is always a pleasure working alongside such creative and wonderful clients like you! Watch this space for more of what’s to come from Partyora soon!
