Got little girls?
Need a party idea?
Well look no further!
How about a Flower Fairy Party? It is cute for a wide age group, it is interactive, and it isn’t an expensive party to have! You can do this right at home. All you need is some imagination (provided here ), some cardstock, and a few other supplies you may already have.
My little Amber is turning 4 this August. I have been getting ready with Party Planning ideas (yes already-time is ticking). I LOVE planning my kids’ parties. That is part of why I got into rubber stamping and why I took cake decorating classes last year (only made one cake since LOL!).
I asked her what she wanted for her party theme-she said I want to make Flower Fairies. Read on to see where that idea came from.
In reality, we are having a Spa party for Amber, but I LOVE sharing great ideas (and HELLO I have another daughter who I really may use this for instead-she will be 9) so figured I’d give it a go. You can see later what I pull together for that SPA party!! I’m already so excited.
Even if you aren’t having a Flower Fairy Party this is still a super activity for when a friend comes over-or a fun activity to MAIL!!! You can print off the directions/photos here to send with a gift for those LONG distance birthdays.
Here we go!
The best thing about this party idea is it is totally interactive. From age 3 and up your daughter can help with the entire process!! Let her punch the paper, and put the supplies together. Once you keep reading you will find all sorts of fun things she can help with (stress free). Amber helped with most of this party planning. She loves helping in my craft room.
Here is what you would do to plan ANY great party.
Pick the Theme- well we already decided here it is a Flower Fairy theme. I would go one step ahead with this one and ask the girls to dress up like fairies!! Some sort of attire with wings
Have your child pick a main color. With this particular party you could definitely do a different color for each guest-but the easiest thing would be to do ONE main color.
Amber changes her favorite color daily! Today it is red. She will be the perfect crafter since she loves ALL colors.
Choose a date, time, place. Once that is done you need to plan the invitation! For this party I thought a FLOWER shaped invite would be best! They are cute and simple.
Here is the back:
I used Lizzie Anne’s-It’s a Party set (I ADORE this set for party invites!!! It’s one of the ONLY party invite sets I own that I actually USE!) I also use Papertrey Ink Simple Alphabet for Amber’s name (and would use to spell out party info). I have messy handwriting so I would never write in the info. You can also print information on your computer.
I just punched the red cardstock with the Marvy Giga Flower punch. I stamped the party info in red ink onto lemon tart cardstock, and punched with a large Fiskars circle punch.
I then layered a green pipe cleaner, folded it in 1/2 (tied with ribbon as leaves) in between the front and back of the invite.
Now your invitation should give people insight into the party theme, and what the party will be like! We decided to make it a much more fun invitation. Your child would LOVE handing these out to friends. If mailing they can usually fit a business size envelope.
We put our flower into a homemade Pixie Stix holder! Now that is fun AND EASY!
Just pick a double sided cardstock that coordinates with your theme.
Cut cardstock 12 X 3 1/2.
Score 2 inches from the bottom, round corners, and make pocket. Then decorate as desired!
For the main character we used Dress Up Lily (or Dress Up Amber in this case, since this set can be personalized with your child’s name!). This set is the perfect Fairy. We colored her to match our flower fairies we are making. You could even let the girls you invite do the coloring instead. Just leave Lily blank.
Pick a Cake Theme-this one is pretty easy. I would do a flower shaped cake or a cake with a bunch of pretty flowers. Maybe stick the flower fairies in the cake for decoration.
Accessories-Purchase flower shaped plates, or plates with a garden theme, and colorful napkins.
Buy plastic/paper cups in the color of your flower theme. Punch a flower, to match the accessories, and put it on the front of each cup-labeled with the child’s name (so they know who has what cup). This is when a label maker comes in handy!! Use the clear labels and you can print several at a time!
Decorate your napkins by wrapping your tableware in there, then rolling them up, and secure with flower rings. Add the girl’s name to center to double as little flower place settings.
