My business, ROMP! Indoor Play Center, hosts custom birthday parties where I get to really let my creative juices flow by planning elaborate parties and then having my staff make it all happen! It's really fun and we end up creating some truly beautiful things. This week we hosted a fairy themed party and it might be my favorite so far!
The colors we used for this theme were purple and green with dashes of pink, tan and gold. We made paper flowers for the backdrop of the party table and birthday chair. We also created paper butterflies and fairies to hang in various locations around the room and two hanging photo props for fun photos made out of cardboard and gold spray paint. We also made our stools look like red toadstools and had a "grass" runner covered with flowers for each guest table.
For the party food we created some adorable food labels and made "toadstools" with apples and marshmallows, pretzels were our "twigs" and we had "pixie dust" with pixie sticks. We also made hand cut butterflies for cupcake toppers, "pixie punch" and pizza. We added more tissue paper flowers and paper fairies to the party table backdrop and created a hand cut paper banner.
The female party guests received flower crowns, fairy wings and ribbon wands and the boys received paper peter pan hats, handmade pan flutes, hooks for costuming fun and handmade cardboard swords. In addition to the fun costume goodies all of the children also received twig colored pencils, insect gliders, pixie sticks, a balloon and stickers. Guests also got to decorate their own fairy houses to take home as the craft!
It all turned out so beautifully and the birthday girl was very pleased!
