A Tinkerbell Birthday Party

My daughter just turned six. To celebrate we had a Tinkerbell party. I had so much fun preparing for this party. For the place settings I created Tinkerbell place cards in paint shop pro, placed a wand on each plate, and tied a ribbon around the handle of the cups and hot glued a silk flower to the ribbon.

When the girls arrived I gave them fairy make overs. I dusted their cheeks with fairy dust (body glitter), let them pick out a set of sticker ear rings, gave them a Tinkerbell ring, painted their fingernails with glittery nail polish, and gave them a set of fairy wings if they didn't already have some. They all LOVED this.

After they were turned into a fairy I had them color a canvas picture of Tinkerbell while they were waiting for the other guests to arrive. I found the canvas picture/crayon sets at Michael's for $1 a set.

We served pizza for dinner. After pizza we handed out Tinkerbell ribbon batons and took the girls on a walk to try them out. These were a big hit! They all LOVED them.

I set up a Tinkerbell prize shoppe and we played bingo for one of the games. I found some brown Tinkerbell paper bags at the Dollar Tree. I wrote their names on the bags and let them use them to collect their prizes in.

We also had to play Fairy, Fairy, Tinkerbell aka Duck, Duck, Goose because it is my daughter's favorite game.

We made edible fairy wands out of pretzel sticks, vanilla flavored candiquick, and sprinkles. After the candy coating dried I wrapped them in individual pretzel bags and tied them with a glittery ribbon.

I forgot to take a picture of the cake before the party. It was a flower with Tinkerbell on top. I also bought some cupcakes with flower rings.

After the cake and ice cream we opened the presents. My daughter wanted a sleepover so we made that part optional. A few of the girls stayed to sleepover. My husband put on some music and the girls had a dance party.

We played a Silly Spinner Tinkerbell game that you can print for free from Here. The girls are pulling silly fish faces. :)

We ended the night with a Tinkerbell movie.

For breakfast I bought mini boxes of cereal, packages of mini donuts, and I made these butterfly waffles.

I bought these bags on clearance after Halloween. I put their wands, ribbon batons, bingo prize bags, and edible fairy wands in these bags for them to take home.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone!

Erika- I don't know if we will be going to Utah or not this summer. Geoff is looking for a job right now. If we end up there we will have to get together!

Lindsey- I haven't seen Charlie and Lola but I will see if I can find some links or ideas for you.

Phyllis- If you have a theme in mind I can try to help you think of some ideas.

Creating a party theme is not that difficult, and one should never get too worried about overdoing it since achieving the right atmosphere is of great importance if you are planning a party that shall be an event to remember.

Laura said...

All I can say is WOW! I love how you took a popular "commercial" type character and made it tasteful and not too commercially! If that makes any sense...love the place settings! So cute :)

Laura said...

I'd love to hear some ideas on my sons first birthday! I am planning on doing The Very Hungry Caterpillar theme!

Brenda said...

Thanks for sharing! What Wonderful Ideas! What lucky girls!

Lulu said...

I love Tinker Bell so much. I would love to throw my daughter this party, but unfortunately she does not love Tink as much as I do. Maybe if I took the time to make the party as fantastic as this one, she could not help but get sucked into the magic.

Could I ask what you use to prop up the wings at the table?

It looks like some type of silver metal stand.
