Woodland Fairy Party

Today we hosted a Woodland Fairy party for Cami's birthday! I can't believe my baby is 7! This post is heavy on the pictures, but it all turned out too cute! Start out by checking out the cute invitations that I ordered from Etsy! I also ordered the party circles from her, and I loved everything! 
 I found this fairy panel fabric at Beverly's. They had two different fairy styles, but I thought this one was the cutest. This was the mini fairy garden station. Each guest would be making a fairy garden to take home as their favor. As kids get older, it gets harder and harder to come up with something cute for favors.
 I used double sided tape to attach the fairy fabric to the front of my french door.
 Awhile ago Pick Your Plum had wooden pennants for sale, and I bought the small and large set. I painted them antique white so that I can easily change the vinyl and twine for each event. This one says "fairies", with a fairy on each side.
 I made these mini boxes out of 1x4's. If you're curious, they are 8" long, each end is 3.5", and the bottom is cut at 6.5". We simply nailed them together with finish nails, and spray painted a tan color that I had on hand.  The basket that the fairies are in is a moss basket from save on crafts.
 They had mini rocks in the bottom, and each girl could choose their tiny succulent and little fairy statue. I cut their names out with vinyl and added them and a fairy to the front.
 I scooped the dirt in for them when it was time. They also passed around a big can of more tiny rocks to add to the top of their garden.
 For a simple place setting, I cut scrapbook paper into 2"x 12" strips and taped on extra party punches that I had from the cupcake toppers. All I did was fold the edges over and under the plates. I used my new daisy cut mason jar lids and striped straws from a recent groopdealz.

 For the kids table I cut a cute label shape out of chalkboard vinyl for their jars.
 I designed this print for my wooden frame using the Silhouette software.
 Here is the larger wooden pennant banner.

 I made "fruit fairy wands" and displayed them in a log that I drilled holes into. The sign is actually a $0.25 corner tile from ReStore that I personalized with vinyl.

 This is one of the little fairy styles that the kids could choose from. I found them on clearance at Beverly's when I found the fairy fabric!

 Happy birthday!

 I HAD to show you this gift from my very talented friend Dana! She MADE this fairy house purse!!! The details are needle felting, and the house is crocheted! It's filled with beautiful fairies!
It was a wonderful birthday shared with family and friends! Thanks to everyone who came and share in her special day!
