{Party Planning} Fairy Garden Inspiration ~ Custom Made for My Birthday Girl from The Birthday Girl


Have you visited Becca from Birthday Girl, yet? I've written about her before, but just in case you aren't familiar, head over and check out her fabulous party blog! Becca just started offering custom party inspiration board design service! (Great idea!) If you need ideas for a party, shower or wedding, she will create a custom board based on your direction, including photos, current sources and ideas! I asked Becca to create a board for Kate's upcoming Fairy Garden party, and boy, did she deliver!

PARTY IDEAS

Setting: an outdoor garden party. set up lunch at a long table or picnic style in the grass
Decorations: bouquets of fresh spring flowers (roses, hydrangea, gerbera daisies, peonies, topiaries), paper butterflies, lanterns and/or string lights to hang around the tables.

Food: tiered trays of tea sandwiches with fruit and small bites in colorful baking cups. petit fours, mini cupcakes, macaroons for dessert. pink & yellow lemonade with lime slices.
Favors: have guests decorate paper stars to attach to fairy wands or give each a bag of labeled fairy dust (glitter).
Activities: have an area with tutus, hair garlands & fairy wings for the kids to play dress up... and you can do face painting.

It's always great to see what others are inspired by. To have Becca create an inspiration board with all of those ideas in one place is the best!
