Woodland Pixie Party




There are fairies at the bottom of our garden!
They often have a dance on summer nights;
The butterflies and bees make a lovely little breeze,
And the rabbits stand about and hold the lights.
Did you know that they could sit upon the moonbeams 
And pick a little star to make a fan,
And dance away up there in the middle of the air?
Well, they can.
~Rose Fyleman

Five little fairies got together to celebrate the season of new beginnings. 



I love giving "out of the box" invitations to parties.  I think they set the tone for the event and get the little guests excited for the party. These pixie invites came in tiny fairy sized 2" boxes and were perfect for tucking the little invitations inside. I  covered the box with pattern paper, attached a toadstool to the top and secured it with bakers twine. 


When the little guest opened her invite, she found a tiny glassine bag secured with a mini pink clothespin. As she opened up the bag...


.....she found a tiny fairy dust bottle charm with the invite tucked inside. I added a strand of bakers twine through the top of the bottle so the girls could wear a bit of fairy dust as a necklace.



I found some pixie images online, printed them and then cut them out.  I then placed the woodland images on the banner, painted the banner pieces pink, let dry and then removed the images so the woodland silhouette was left behind.  I paired the banner with this sweet felt leaf garland to give it even more of a whimsical woodland feel.

Here are the woodland images in use again but this time I used them on woodland favor jars. I used a bit of pink polka dot fabric to attach to the top of the jars with bakers twine. The jars were filled with yummy taffy in happy spring colors.



Each little pixie received a pretty pinwheel to take home. I used floral straws for the handles and attached soft pastel colored paper for the pinwheels. 


Mason jars were spray painted in pretty pinks, creams and blues and were the perfect container to hold the pinwheels. 


How sweet are these cookies?! I mean, REALLY?! They were just too adorable to eat...but we didn't let that stop us. ;-)  




The fairies couldn't dine on cookies alone so I filled tiny cups with nuts and berries and added teeny tiny spoons to go with them. I had some extra fabric strips so I dressed the cups up a bit by attaching the strips around them. 


The pixies getting ready to party!
 My sweet friend made the fairy wings and the girls had a blast pretending to take flight. 


The girls caught a couple fairies in cookie form and promptly devoured them. 



What is spring without a beautiful maypole? The fairies twirled and danced around the maypole and loved every minute of it. My amazing friend made this by spray painting an old umbrella stand, adding a pvc pipe to the stand and attaching a flower bouquet to the top. It was gorgeous!




I adore fairy gardens and thought it would be fun for the girls to create their own little pixie paradise. Each fairy painted her own tea cup planter and filled it with toadstools, moss, flowers, a bridge and other fun fairy sized decorations. 

I loved seeing the creativity shine through each girl as they created her own gardens. So fun to see how they all created something different!




Here's the finished product. The girls were so thrilled with their gardens and made wishes in hopes fairies would find a new home in their tea cups. 


The party came to a close with the girls dancing, twirling and making wishes. It was truly a magical afternoon!
