a fairy theme is endless. Just think of the scenes from literary works like: Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night’s Dream’s" ; Lewis Carroll’s "Alice in Wonderland", the folklore of the Brothers Grimm,
"Cinderella" and "Peter Pan".
A Fairy Party
of Fall, Winter, Springtime or Summer, love, liveliness, and high spirited youthful adventure. Here are some
Fairy Party Supplies & Fairy Motif Ideas, to get your
creative juices flowing: Fairy rings, toadstool-dwelling elves, pixies, hollow hills, the lore of plants and flowers,
enchanted forest, woodland creatures, mushrooms & toadstools popping
up all over, potions, wands & fairy wings, the unwitting transport of subjects to fairyland.
Fall Woodland Fairy
Color Scheme: For a Fall Woodlands
Fairy Theme choose Natural Earth tones & Fall Colors (orange, red,
yellow, gold, brown).
If you choose to use
a Woodland Fairy Theme, use lots of fall flowers, autumn
leaves, ferns, ivy, flower garlands, wreaths, feathers, mushrooms,
trees, pumpkins and
straw bales. These could be real or
artificial. You could also make your own flowers from tissue
paper (instructions in crafts below).
Add some Woodland Creatures (frogs,
deer, wolf, rabbits, squirrels, skunks, dragonflies,
bees, birds, or
ladybugs) in decorating. These could be figures, or stuffed

Fun Decorating Tips
Balloons are an inexpensive & fun way to decorate for any event.
Make balloon cluster & rosettes to hang on walls and to pin to the
corners of tables.
basic balloon decorating
You can also make
and use them to make an arch over a doorway or just to make a flower garden by tying them to wooden dowels of varying heights and sticking them around the yard or if the party is inside stick the dowels down into florist clay to hold them upright. Cover
the clay with some green moss. You could also tie the balloon flowers to a stair rail or hang them from the
ceiling. Use 5" Balloons for small flowers and 11" Balloons for large
Fairy Crafts & Activities:
Make a Mushroom
Base (mushroom stem) - Your base could be a paper
Mache container (available at floral supply or florist's in a variety of sizes) I use a 12" x 11" for a large mushroom and graduate them down for smaller mushrooms. For
a base sturdy enough to sit upon, I have used metal containers (the ones popcorn is sold in during the holiday
season works great) and coffee cans for smaller mushroom. Paint them the color you desire.
Top - Use foam board and cut in a circle about 3" wider than the bottom of your container. If you want it to be sturdy enough to sit upon, use
plywood instead of foam board. Turn the base container up-side-down (bottom of container will be top of the mushroom stem). Center top over base, drill 4 to 6 holes through the top and base. Secure top onto base with
Cover the top with batting. Then, cover batting and foam board with a circle of fabric
(fabric can match your base color or be totally different).
Make sure to cut the circle of fabric large enough to cover the batting and foam board and wrap under the foam board to be stapled).
One of my favorites is to use a white base, cover the top with a red fabric and paint large white dots on the top.
Lots of Tissue Flowers
To make tissue flowers use 6-8 sheets of brightly colored tissue paper for each flower.
Lay them on top of each other in a pile, and fold them accordion style. Twist the layers together at their centers with a piece of fuzzy pipe cleaner. Then fluff each layer of tissue, one at a time. Cut a couple of leaves from two pieces of green construction paper and tape to the back side.
Make a Flower Head Wreath
5/8-inch Ribbon ( different colors)
Flowers, Flower garland, Ivy garland & etc.
Wire, 28 gauge
Wrap floral tape around a piece of wire, covering all wiring and gluing. Wrap flowers & garland around wire holding in place with floral tape or gluing to hold flowers in place. Tie a multi-loop bow with long tails from ribbon. Wire bow to wreath at back, gluing to hold in position if necessary. Tuck leaves in amongst flowers, wiring and gluing to hold.
Pairing Fairies Race (ages 4 and up)
Object: To be the first team of fairies to finish the relay race.
A golden pot of fairy dust ( spray paint a small clay pot and , plug bottom and partially fill with golden glitter.
You will need: Two relay courses which include the following for each team. ( Feel free to change the individual items below, these are just suggestions).
A Moat with a plank across-This can be a real moat like a child's pool with a wide board or it can be a pretend moat drawn in the grass with a plank across.
A pile of daisies
A 5' fairy ring (circle marked in the grass. You can use spray paint or if inside, use a rope or a circular garland made of balloons. See balloon garland instructions here.
Heart Cookie pairs. Two small heart shaped sugar cookies, baked with overlapping edges to form two joined hearts ( using
Pillsbury refrigerated dough makes it easy).
Before the party, set up the course.
Divide the children into two teams and each team into pairs of fairies.
Demonstrate how they should run the course:
The first two fairies in each team hold hands and run to their pots of gold, sprinkle a pinch of fairy dust. Holding Hands, each team runs to the moat and cross one at a time, one waiting for the other. They hold hands again and run to the pile of daisies and put
one in each other's hair. Then, they run to the fairy ring, and holding hands, skip around the circle singing, "Fairies under the water, fairies under the tree, Pink and purple pretty fairies just like me." Finally, they run to the plate of cookies and break a heart pair in two, each take one and run back to their team, tagging the next pair. The first team of fairy pairs to finish wins.
Pass the Fairy Dust
Play like Hot Potato - Everyone sits in a circle and passes a pretty clear plastic container (filled with glitter & wrapped in a piece of tulle & tired with a bow) from one person to the next. Someone calls time or stops the music and the person left holding the Fairy Dust is out. Continue until there is only one person left.
"Fairy Says "- Play like Simon Says.
"Face Painting" -
Hire someone to come and paint the
girls faces. This is a wonderful activity for a fairy party.
Fairies Garden Cake Instructions
Bake a 9 X 13 cake in any
flavor. Once it is cooled, remove it from the pan and frost the entire
cake with chocolate icing. Use lady fingers to line the sides of the
entire cake to look like a picket fence. Top your cake with Oreo cookie
crumbs. Make flowers out of assorted candy (gumdrops, gummy lifesavers)
and green toothpicks as the stems. Green gumdrops are cute as leaves
(flatten them with your fingers to give them the leaf shape). Place
them in rows on the cake and make simple labels for each row (posies,
roses, etc.) - a very cute and easy cake!
