If you can look at the photographs I am about to show you and not say WOW then you need to see (no pun intended) your optician! This party is any little girl’s dream and I am doing my best not to let Alice see it for fear of disappointment next year!
Not only is this a fantastic party, but it has also been documented beautifully by Ellie’s very talented photographer Mum, Pascale Wowak. The theme was thought up by Ellie, but the party itself was put together by Lindsey of Blue Egg Events and an amazing amount of work has gone in to making it this beautiful, but how worth it!
First of all, the guests were greeted by this enormous ‘Happy Birthday Eliana’ sign made entirely from twigs and leaves.
The girls used ‘treasure’ (twigs, leaves and moss) found around the fantastic location of Henry Cowell State Park to decorate fairy houses (so cute!)
Then there was the food…
“Squirrel Nut Mix” (trail mix), “Fairy Fruit Wands” (grapes with star-shaped melon pieces), “Pixie Dust Sandwiches” (flower-shaped almond butter and jelly/jam sandwiches) and “Toadstool Cheese” (cheese sticks, cherry tomatoes and crackers)
Their moss covered place mats and nameplates are gorgeous
And what about these cookies?! Yes, cookies!!
Then for dessert? Fairy Fluff Pies with fairy dust (sugar) of course :)
And here is the star of the show, the birthday girl herself, showing off her beautifully decorated fairy house, looking about as happy as a little girl who just had the best birthday party ever!
A huge thank you to Pascale for letting us share this party with you! Pop over to Pascale’s blog to see even more amazing pictures of this party, and others, and check out some of Blue Egg Events’ other parties on Facebook.
Why don’t you use this party as inspiration for your next? I don’t suppose many of us have access to an area like this, or the time to put ALL of these details together, but even just a few of the finer points would make for a pretty gorgeous Woodland Fairy party. Or even, just use the woodland backdrop, non-fairy related food, build a den and toast some marshmallows and you have the boy version! And if you do it, send us some pics!
