I must have been too busy canoeing, hiking, and generally enjoying the balmy summer to share a very fun project from back in July. In my little neck of the woods, I hosted a Fairy Party for a wee friend's 3rd Birthday Party.
Hobby Lobby was my shop of choice for this party. Here is a wooden 3 covered in patterned felt, a ceramic mushroom for the garden, a tiny, ceramic owl planter all sitting on a table covered in a sheet of moss.
A fairy dwelling in the woods they made with found objects from the forest: walnuts, mosses, grasses, a cedar trunk with roots, butterfly wings, ivy, sticks, etc.
|Another fairy threshold.|
|The cake (made by the birthday girl's aunt) fit right in and was delicious.|
All the guests got a small wooden fairy house to paint and decorate. They took them home to their yards to attract fairies.
The party was a major success and the girls and even a few boys had a blast. Several of the children spotted fairies in the shadowy woods and my forest will forever be a magical place. If you have any questions about the party, just leave me a comment.
