Decorations for a Fairy Birthday party

  Last month, my granddaughter celebrated her 5th birthday. She wanted a fairy party. Luckily I had a fairy stamp to use for her invitations. Being a lover of the colors purple & pink, her invitations looked like this.

   I precut the scalloped circles. After I stamped the image in Versamark, she sprinkled on the glitter. You should have seen her eyes as the fairy magically appeared right before her eyes. She & her mom assembled the invites when she went back home.

I always make a banner for my granddaughters'birthdays. Here is the one I made for the fairy party.

 Of course I kept the same colors as the invitations.  I used doilies as the background.  However, I ran out half way through and when I went to replenish my supply, I couldn't find the same pattern. SoI alternated the doilies.

This year I made welcome signs for the birthday parties. While browsing through Michaels one day, I found this piece of wood. It made a fantastic sign in keeping with the fairy theme. I used stickers for the message.

On the door greeting the party goers.

This is the garland I made to hang by the fireplace.

I usually make paper garland.  However, this time I decided to use the left over flowers I purchased to make the fairy head pieces.  You can check out the fairy crowns  from a previous post.
Here's an upclose shot of the garland.

 One of the activities the girls did was to make fairy gardens. My daughter painted the houses as she didn't want her kitchen painted pink & purple by 5 year olds.  Aren't these darling?

They are all so serious!

 Tomorrow I'll be back with more decorations I made such as the centerpiece in the above picture.
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.
