Y’all! I know I say this about every party we have, but this was one of my favorites!! I’ve been so excited to blog about this party! Braylen loves fairies and flowers, and a few months back I saw a fairy garden party at Sweetspire I knew she would be all about a fairy party of our own.
And she totally was. Fair warning, this post has a ton of pictures, but I just couldn’t narrow it down.
We had two main party tables, one for food and cake and another for creating the fairy gardens. I’ll link everything at the bottom of this post for easy access to all the supplies, if you want to recreate a similar fairy garden party for your little girl.
I didn’t get a great picture of the whole table with my good camera, so this iPhone version will have to do…
I just hung a shower curtain for the back drop, a large birch limb and wrapped it in pretty flowers. Actually, my mom was in charge of that, I probably don’t say this enough, but she is a huge reason all of my party ideas get carried out so seamlessly.
We set the food up on the screened-in back porch (I just removed all of the furniture so it wouldn’t be too crowded (plus, it had rained that morning and it was a great way to get everything set up, even in the rain). On the back deck, I set up long tables and Jason from Sweetspire made that table look amazing.
We went with a simple ombre rosette cake, if you’re ever looking to cut your party budget, order a simple cake without a design fee and add a personal touch as the topper!
My mom and I created these fairy trees to give the table some height and further incorporate the fairy garden theme. It’s just white branches that we grouped together, then we added the purple flowers and lights and used greenery at the bottom to cover the floral foam.
You can pick up those white branches from Hobby Lobby, for these two trees, we used three packs of white branches.
A moss runner and two packs of tiny flowers made a perfect addition to the table, the details are always my favorite part of decorating for a party.
At this point we already have so many party decorations, I can easily pull from past parties (like those pallet boxes Allen made several years back, they’ve been used and borrowed more times than I can count).
I thought about having Allen build me a cake stand, but I just didn’t know if the timing would work out for him. He was in the middle of re-decking our back porch and I needed that to take priority, so I found this beauty on Etsy.
I like to keep the food super simple and avoid any prep-work, if possible. We ordered nuggets and fruit from Chick-fil-a, extra sweets from the bakery and added Goldfish.
We did flower crowns for a fun party favor and I picked up fresh flowers and greenery from Trader Joe’s. My mom found that adorable sign at Hobby Lobby and it went with the theme perfect.
Now, let’s talk about the actual fairy garden construction. Jason brought so many fun things and provided everything for the fairy boxes, if you’re local, you should give him a call, he also hosts so many fun events at his shop.
They added moss and tiny things to make their fairy feel right at home and each took home a pack of fairy garden seeds to plant their own flowers at home.
I loved seeing how unique each girls garden turned out to be. He told them to think about which type of fairy might be living there and the things she might like and their imaginations were running wild with ideas.
We had a wide array of fairy gardens at the end, BK’s was packed full of stuff because she wasn’t sure which type of fairy might come and she wanted to have something any fairy would love.
Afterwards, we sang happy birthday, blew out candles, ate delicious cake, and opened gifts. The girls spent the rest of the time picking honeysuckles and playing in the back yard.
