A ‘fairytastic’ party full of fun!

Creating a Fairy Birthday Party

garden4At Tillie and Matt we’re always looking to give our parties an original twist. We love it when a parent comes up with a new idea for which they’d like us to create a unique and fun-filled party.

Recently, we were asked to do a ‘Fairy Birthday Party’ for a six-year-old. Ten lovely girls in total . . . and what fun we had!

The party took place in the birthday girl’s garden and the weather was beautiful (they did have a gazebo in case of rain but it wasn’t needed). We kicked off with flower fairy and butterfly face painting for all the girls, time to play on the swings and dance to our sound track, followed by fairy-themed dancing games and a traditional ‘pass the parcel’ with prizes for everyone. Then it was time for a fairy- themed scavenger hunt around the garden. Together with Flo the Flower Fairy (the entertainer), the children worked as a team to solve rhyming couplets and discover the hiding place of the next clue. This ended with the discovery of a hidden box containing a tiny bottle of magic fairy dust for each child and a tub of sweets. The children then created their own fairy garden in which to hide the fairy dust.

Now a chance for everyone to use their imagination! We gave an empty tub to each child, which they filled with soil, planted a flower and created a little pond filled with water. With a little help from Flo and some of the parents the children created their own unique gardens. They used shells, pebbles, white rocks, painted mushrooms, fairy houses, glass balls and tiny fences. Finally, they hid their fairy dust. We were so impressed at how detailed and beautiful they made their gardens look. Proof that age is just a number and with imagination and a few basic materials you can do anything.

We rounded off the party with bubbles and glitter tattoos as the girls ate.

We think it’s safe to say this was a ‘fairytastic’ party full of fun!
