You may be wondering how to help make the day as magical as possible for your little fairy. Inviting a fairy to come will bring the fun and magic! Here’s some idea on how to help make it sparkletabulous:
Decorating the Fairy Palace
Perhaps it is fall or winter and your party will be indoors, but you still want to bring the magic and beauty of nature indoors. How to decorate?
Like most parents, you likely want something that will impress your little one but not take hours and hours and cost too much dwarf gold. Here’s some ideas:
- Hanging Fairy Flowers: Make tissue paper flowers of various sizes by folding up tissue paper and cutting both ends into points; gather in the middle and hang from the ceiling, light fixtures, or tape to the walls.
- Garland Garden: get some garlands of flowers/leaves from Michael’s or a dollar store and hang around the room. Add some white twinkly fairy lights for a bit of magic!
- Magic Palace: get some green or pink chiffon or other sheer fabric, and drape around the room, creating a completely enclosed magical space. You can either gather the fabric so it is hung in garlands with fairy lights behind, or hang in its full widths to completely cover the walls and ceiling, pinning or taping into the edges between ceiling and walls. Add a few flowers and lights, and ta-da! Very transforming!
- Lights Enchanted: Drape coloured small Christmas lights around the room, and turn off all other lights. Instant enchantment!
To help create Fairyland, try to minimize background noise and chat as much as possible during the group entertainment time. If there’s lots of parents chatting (and we know, it is so much fun to chat!), then the children have a hard time hearing the fairy, and get easily distracted. Try having a drop-off party, a separate area for parents, or asking parents to watch quietly gives children the chance to really have their magical experience. And if they want to take part, even better!
Room to Fly
Fairies love to fly, so if possible, have space to move around and dance in. Clear out coffee tables and push furniture to the wall if possible to provide flying paths for the little ones. If this isn’t an option, then we can pretend to fly while sitting, so we can still spread our wings!
