Mom Monday {Real Party, Fairy House Decorating}

When I stumbled across this party by Princess Sharon, I about fell over in my chair…first off I am a huge fan of craft parties. But this…? well let’s just say it involves crafting, glitter and fairies.

Each girl dressed up as a fairy, and then got to decorate their very own fairy house!! I mean come on!? The houses were actually simple bird houses found at Michaels. Then Princess Sharon suggests either giving each girl a bowl of her own decorations, or scattering the glittery items down the center of the table for a great centerpiece!

Some ideas that Princess Sharon gave us for decorating include :  tiny polymer mushrooms, feathers, buttons, sequins, ‘fairy books’ (printed tiny pages with writing on them), leaves, acorns, small pinecones, shells, moss…

I love Princess Sharon’s perspective on this craft ” it fosters the child’s creativity and excitement…enable each individual child to come up with something totally unique and inviting for their little fairy, who is sure to visit in the night if they leave their fairy house out! “. She also offers edible crafts, similar to gingerbread house making but fairy houses, or even pirate ships! How great is that?
