How to Style a DIY Pixie Fairy Birthday Party!



I had so much fun styling this party!  It gave me a chance to re-work our existing Pixie Fairy Designs from lilac to pink, and to create a simple yet charming kids birthday party!

Usually it takes me a good four months to plan a party from scratch (mostly because I'm a control freak who loves to DIY all aspects from printable, to baking and photography...), but for this one I wanted to incorporate simple decor ideas and create a magical ambiance that anyone can pull together quickly and without much fuss.

So check out the results, plus my super easy DIY party planning tips below - Oh, and the toadstool cake tutorial is also homemade, so watch out for a tutorial coming your way soon! ;)



Party Inspiration and Printables

Creating a beautiful party, whatever the theme, requires careful planning and resourceful creativity. Even if pushed for time, research is key to helping you put together a harmonious look, and a little creative flair can help you transform any celebration into an enchanting and unforgettable event.

My main inspiration for this Fairy Tale Party were the “Pink Fairy” Party Printables by Bird's Party - With hues of pink, butterflies, toadstools and lots of garden influence, it provides the perfect palette for a spring or summer party, and is versatile enough and can be tailored to any age group.




Party Styling and Decor

For my daughter’s kindergarten age group, the emphasis was on creating a simple but nonetheless magical atmosphere - The printables and party stationery play a major role in helping to create a very seasonal and enchanted party scene, complete with butterflies and an indoor garden

Disposable party-ware can look super cute and unique if embellished for the occasion with inexpensive party printables, which includes lots of fun details and designs.

The chairs were adorned with flower garlands (from most craft stores), which ares secured with green floral tape to the chairs.

The eye catching display of paper lanterns hung above the sitting table acts both as decor, and as photo backdrop. Little grass mats from craft stores are used as place-mats and a bouquet of peonies is decorated with paper printable butterflies from Bird’s Party.




Toadstool Birthday Cake

A beautiful homemade cake in the shape of a toadstool is the crowning glory of the table and a centerpiece in itself - It will surely wow your little fairies and delight the taste-buds! All washed down with pink lemonade of course. No need for elaborate desserts buffet here! ;)

A step-by-step tutorial is coming soon, but suffice to say for now that the main thing is to have fun and let your imagination run with it!



Party Activities and Fairy Fun

A “Fairy Fun” crafts table is a quick and easy party activity that will get your little guests excited and engaged, without spending a lot! The craft station is beautifully decorated to match the party theme, again making the use of those  party printables. 

The usual craft supplies of crayons, colored paper, glue, lots of sparkly “fairy dust” glitter, beads, ribbon spools, stickers made from the printables again, and assorted embellishments are all part of craft table. 

The personalized coloring books from I See Me are a fabulous addition to the craft table, and double-duty as favors too! ;)



Party Favors and Gifts

A great and meaningful party favor does not have to be complicated, not cost a fortune! The fabulous personalized place mats and the personalized coloring book from I See Me provide the prefect going away gift for any little fairy. Plus, they make great place mats and accessories for the party and craft tables too, and will last a lot longer than any trinket!

“Storytelling Time” at the end of the party offer a unique and entertaining way to wind down the party and get the little guests seated and rested. A personalized book from I See Me such as the title “My Very Own Fairy Tale” is the ideal book for such an occasion, and will be treasured by the birthday girl for years to come!
