There’s just something so whimsical about throwing a fairy themed party. Well, technically this was a “Wellie Wisher” American Girl fairy garden themed party, but there’s nothing very whimsical about being technical, is there?
Any-who, about two weeks ago I had the pleasure of hosting a beautifully childish event for a group of 16 faaairy little girls….Get it? (Wow I just don’t know what it is, but something about blogging just drives me to be incredibly corny…yet I digress…)
I was so excited for this particular event because surprisingly in planning it I realized that I’d never actually collaborated with a face painter before. Henna artists, yes. Crepe makers, yes. Baseball teachers, yes…but never a good ol’ face painter. Lucky for me, one of my party hostesses’ introduced me to her older sister that had been face painting for years and coincidentally this seemed like the perfect event to bring her in on.
All of the girls were entranced by this magical being of an artist, who drew her wand to their faces, and left behind a special gift of enchanted cuteness. It was a sight to see; fairy wings of all shapes, sizes, and hues graced their little faces like some secret garden club, stamp of passage.
When they weren’t floating about the yard, climbing their tree-house fort, or singing and dancing…they crafted. They crafted little fairy gardens for their imaginary fairy friends. They painted wooden birdhouses with pops of pink, lavender, and teal blue. Once dry they embellished them with symbols of love, like painted and bejeweled hearts. Then they filled their gardens with soil from the potting station. Once complete they laid the finishing touches. Moss to add some greenery, pebbles to form the walkway, and little resin flowers and bugs to keep their fairy friends company.
All-in-all it was a beautiful event. The girls laughed and played together with their Wellie Wisher dolls, even sitting them down for an afternoon cup of tea while their houses dried. As each girl fluttered off one-by-one with their parents, they towed home their creations, until there was only four fairy homes left in their little fairy town.
One for the birthday girl, her sister, and their two besties that slept over. They told me as we packed up that they would keep the light on… so that their fairy friends could find their way to their new homes.
Innocence is bliss.
