Fairy Princess 6yr - Flowerpot Ring Toss
T. in harrisburg, nc
Best Fairy Princess Party ever! All the kids loved it, didn't want to leave. All the parents remarked how imaginative and organized it was. All were duly impressed! But, most importantly got RAVE reviews from my 6yr old daughter.
INVITATIONS: drew & coloured a fairy princess, photocopied on cardstock, outlined wings, crown, wand in glitter glue, cut out outline, on the skirt of the princess had the following poem: // GL is turning six and all the pieces are falling into place. We're just missing You and your bright and shiny face. There'll be sprinkles of Pixie Dust and Magical Games to Play. We'll even learn to Fly and have some Fairy Tea that day. Only you can make her Fairy Princess party complete. So join us in the Fairy Forest and earn your Wings to keep. // Bought puzzle invitations (OTC), wrote out details of party location, time, date, RSVP etc., jumbled puzzle & placed in snack bag taped to back of this invitation. When kids opened it, they had to assemble puzzle for party details.
DECORATIONS: Light Green Garden Flower Canopy / Mosquito Netting (from Heartsong) with flowers at top & bought some feather butterflies attached to the draping netting. Hung this canopy overhead the kids tables. Beautiful effect, looked like one was under a Flowering tree. Hung small Fairy Pinata inside the middle of the canopy (looks like fairy under the tree). Bought helium Butterfly shaped balloons for each chair/child. Tinkerbell Tablecloths (only fairy theme I could find at the time)but you could just as easily use plain light green, purple or pink tablecloth). Fairy themed plates, cups, napkins (Dollar Store).
Goodie bags(for the toys/candy from pinata)were also fairy themed. Using 3 rolls of light green Crepe Paper & pastel coloured construction paper made floating butterfly & flower curtains for the walls. Cut out tons of construction paper butterflies & flowers. Strung dangling tendrils of green crepe, stapled with different coloured butterflies & flowers on each strand. Taped the 12-15 ft curtains to the walls. Made smaller version for the doorway. Made tissue paper flowers with pipe cleaner stems. You can wrap these around anywhere, I was going to do each individual chair or along the green curtains but instead just strewn them all around the floor. Using more crepe paper, stapled streamers to helium balloons attached to it were one or two paper butterflies or flowers (looks like butterflies flying).
FOOD: Flower Shaped Cookie Cutter (Strawberry jam sandwich), Butterfly Shaped Cookie Cutter (Turkey & Cheese sandwich), Fruit Tray (Strawberries, Grapes, Pineapple), Berry Fairy Pink Punch, Fairy Pink Lemonade, Iced Sweet Tea, PIXIE Sticks, BARBIE FAIRYTOPIA (Plastic Fairy figurine sitting inside a pink blossoming flower) CUPCAKE cake (WALMART SUPERCENTER BAKERY)- love the cupcake cake, no fuss, no cutting), if had time would have made flower shaped lollipop cookies & carved out cabbage w/spinach dip inside vegetable platter.
GAMES: Music was Barbie Fairytopia, High School Musical & Nutcracker. Hired someone dressed up as FAIRY QUEEN to lead the kids on their quest to earn their wings. Kids learned a little dance to warm up.
