I am planning the party for my niece's sixth birthday and she is really interested in Brian Fraud's faeries and wants a faerie party.  The party is on the 24th so I don't have a lot of time left and I can't really think of much to do for decorations or activities.

So far I have made the invitations with paintings of faeries on them and for an activity I made some plain white faerie wings for them and got paint, glitter, jewels, and fake flowers so that they can decorate their own wings to wear during the party.

The party is mostly girls, but there are two boys coming and I was wondering if anyone had an idea for something they can do instead of wings.

If anyone has any ideas for the party I would really appreciate it.

perhaps a sort of garland?  you wouldn't have to use flowers, maybe just sprigs of...whatever.

Blow up a faerie picture, or just draw a big one if you have the talent, and make paper wands for pin the wand on the faery.  Have some glitter makeup to give faery makeovers.  Have everyone dress as faeries.For music, dance of the sugarplum fairies and other fairy themed music.  Glitter in the loot bags and bubble blow, for some reason bubbles remind me of faeries.  Some random ideas for now.

Ooh, fay party, what a lucky girl! Make sure to have plenty of ribbons, in pastel colours. Have the children write birthday wishes on a length of ribbon,, and tie their ribbons onto one of those... I don't know what they're called, but they're big wire circles found in craft stores, I think for cross stitch (?), then have the birthday girl wear it on her head durring presents and cake. If you make fabric goodie bags, tie small bells to the ends of pullstrings, and fill them with pixie sticks and comtainers of bubblestuff. The only other thing I can think of is a faerie house, but thats not a birthday thing.

if you could have the party outside in a garden that would work the decorations out for themselves. but if it has to be indoors and you ahve any laying around garden furniture and flowers would make a very faerie feeling.

      A couple months ago, my fiance and I walked into a local independent toy store, and we were immediately approached by a glitter-toting employee.  "Hold out your arms!"  shake-shake-sprinkle.  "It's faerie dust.  Protects you from ogres.  Only works while you're in the store.  We're not responsible for ogre attacks out there."  Then she twittered off.  It was an amusing little diversion and it put us in the proper mood to shop in this particular store.  Perhaps it would put your guests in the proper mood for a faerie party.
