Taleen Shirikian of Simple Little Details transformed this backyard into a magically Whimsical Fairy Garden Birthday Party for a fairy special little girl ;). I love all of the simple & sweet details, from the rhinestone studded silk flowers throughout, to the pretty garden-esque tables with ‘growing’ centerpieces. Such a lovely way to spend a beautiful day!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • Butterflies & flowers decorated birthday cake + Lucky Charms cupcakes & flower cookie pops
  • Colorful fairy wings & wands for each guest + a ‘fairy dust’ sand art activity
  • A white picket fence table backdrop, rainbow bean bag seating & garden moss centerpieces
  • Silk flower decorated signs, invitation & milk glasses + large paper flower dessert table backdrop

PARTY DETAILS as told by Taleen

My client Christine hired me to do the event design for her daughter Nicole’s 4th birthday. Since Nicole likes to play in the garden and play dress up, we thought having a whimsical garden themed birthday would be perfect. The party took place in the backyard, which was the perfect setting for this magical celebration. I kept the party fun and whimsical while still bringing in a few rustic elements.

The dining tables were covered in colorful striped linens and paired with white wooden chairs. I wanted the centerpieces to look as if they were growing out of the table to create a whimsical feel. I had a variety of colorful flowers sticking straight up out of the base which was covered in moss. Each setting had a utensil packet that I made out of purple burlap favor bags and flower embellishments.

The kids’ section had to be one of my favorite elements of the whole party. I rented bean bags in multiple colors for the kids to sit on. Each place setting had a pink burlap favor bag that was paired with a fairy wand. I rented a white picket fence to act as the backdrop for the kids table. This also served as a way for me to display the fairy wings for the kids to grab and wear. There was a sign attached to the fence that said “Grab your wings, and fly!” We also had a toy chest that was filled with more goodies for the kids to play dress-up.

As an additional activity for the kids, I had a “Make your own fairy dust” station. Each child had their own fairy dust bottle and was able to fill it with multiple layers of sand to create sand art. I displayed all the bottles on a wooden shelf which made for a nice backdrop to the table. I also displayed an “N” for Nicole that I covered with moss and flowers. The kids had so much fun with this activity.

For the drink table, we had 2 different juices served in drink dispensers. We used milk glasses that I had embellished with flowers and pink twine. They were displayed at different heights using wooden crates. We carried on the theme to the dessert table. The backdrop had gigantic paper flowers that we attached to the fence. The flower sugar cookies were placed up right into wooden boxes to look as if they were growing. The flower theme continued throughout the cupcakes and cake.

    Hi! Love the decor of this party. I am in the midst of planning an enchanted wood 1st birthday party for my little one. May I know where can I get those beautiful butterflies decorating the fence? Thanks.

    Hi, everything is beautiful. I will like to do those centerpieces. What did you used to set the flowers like that ?

    Hi, loved every detail of the whimsical event. Would like to know how you did the centerpieces of flowers. How you made them stay upright, what did you used?
