Malu Boutiques (a mom & daughter team) had a very special birthday party to throw for a very special guest of honor: their daughter/granddaughter – Sam! Inspired by her love of Tinkerbell, a Tinkerbell Party was the obvious choice… and they truly sprinkled on some styling magic for this fairytale-of-a-party that brought a gorgeous “Backyard Pixie Hollow” to life for Sam and her friends!
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
- Tree centerpieces flanked with birdhouses and glittery fairy silhouettes
- An INCREDIBLY detailed desserts & decor table. Click here to see if full size!
- Flower-bedecked cake pops displayed on tree stump “pedestals”
- A Captain Hook themed table for the boys – complete with chair hooks & pirate hats!
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Maylene…
My daughter loves the princesses but her favorite is Tinkerbell she stays so quiet while watching her movies (If you knew Sam you would know what I mean she turned 3 going on 20 she can talk you ear off). We wanted to recreate a Pixie Hollow theme so that she could feel as if she was there.
The entrance was adorned with real tree trunks where entering guests could sign Sam’s scrapbook and pick up their wands and wings then head over to the hollow.
The girl’s table had a forest look with the tree centerpiece being the focal point each of the chairs had an organza bow with a different fairy attached except, for the birthday girl – hers had Tinkerbell. As for the boys, we created a Captain Hook table we accented their chairs with hooks, and made pirate hats for them to wear.
The children had a blast playing in the tree house and swings, afterwords they made their take home gifts the girls colored fairy pictures while the boys made foam sword it was a good time had by all.
My husband’s work bench was used to create the Pixie Hollow with all the fairies, flowers, animals, tree trunks, and of course the food and goodies.
