custom inspiration board: a fairy garden birthday

I created this board for Kim of the Tomkat Studio to help inspire plans for her daughter Kate's fairy garden birthday party. Besides having excellent taste, Kim designs her own line of party invites and paper goods, so I'm totally confident she'll be able to take my ideas and run with them. Can't wait to see pictures from the event!

Theme: Fairy Garden

Party Ideas
Colors: greens, pinks and yellows
Setting: an outdoor garden party. set up lunch at a long table or picnic style in the grass.
Decorations: bouquets of fresh spring flowers (roses, hydrangea, gerbra daises, peonies, topiaries), paper butterflies, lanterns and/or string lights to hang around the tables.
Food: tiered trays of tea sandwiches with fruit and small bites in colorful baking cups. petit fours, mini cupcakes, macaroons etc for dessert. pink & yellow lemonade with lime slices.
Favors: have guests decorate paper stars to attach to fairy wands or give each a bag of labeled fairy dust (glitter).
Activities: have an area with tutus, hair garlands & fairy wings for the kids to play dress up... and face painting.
