Big Sis and Baby Girl have birthdays just a few days apart from each other. We had decided that we weren’t going to do big parties this year. We were going to be low key. I mean… our birthday parties aren’t huge anyway… but we were thinking to just have a friend or two over.

Somehow it turned into a joint fairy tea party for the girls. It took some creativity with the small space in our home, but I think we made it work and the girls had a blast!

We had a game of “Pin the Wings on the Fairy” set up in the girls’ room. The girls who wanted to play took turns being blindfolded and sticking the wings to the fairy. You can download a copy of the game pieces here:

We also had a photo booth set up. I draped a sheet over the door to the master bedroom and let the kids play dress up while I took their pictures.

We have so much dress up at our house. I threw sunglasses, hats, gloves, and scarves in a basket and also printed out some photo booth props from here  . I laminated them and stuck them on some skewers ( I  cut the points off of). The kids had so much fun and the pictures are priceless!

tea party 4We had fairy food for our meal. I cut small sandwiches using flower and butterfly cookie cutters that I grabbed from WalMart (made by Wilton). We had fairy wands (fruit skewers with grapes, blueberries and strawberries), cake pops and fairy cookie (see below). We ate on small plates with fairy forks (appetizer forks.. again, from WalMart).

All in all, the party (including the food) was less than $30. My little fairies had a blast!

How do you handle birthday parties at your home? Do you do them every year? Do you do just family?

    You did a great job with the party. The girls look like they had a wonderful time! We used to do BIG parties but have scaled back a lot since having the little ones. We do a party each year for each of their birthday but now its our best friends family, our parents, and siblings (some can make it and other can’t due to the distance). This year Azilee is deciding between a themed party, a sleepover, a trip to chuck E Cheese, etc…. She can’t make up her mind.
