Faith, trust and pixie dust

If you read my initial post of Ellie's Whimsical Fairy party, this is meant to act as a follow-up with more details. Now that I have had a chance to recover. Whew!

Here is the set up of the tables. I got the turquoise paper plates and pink polka dot napkins from Target. I snatched them up right away!

I used miniature glass vases filled with pixie dust (a.k.a. glitter!) and fairy wands I saw over at Icing Designs

The party favors were these simple vintage pink roses. Can you believe they are soap? Yep, just pull off a petal and add water! Wouldn't they be perfect in a guest bathroom? Or even better, a bed and breakfast. And you can get this same romantic charm at, you guessed it, Dollar Tree! 

 I just happened to stumble upon these mercury glass candlesticks at World Market. They were in the Christmas clearance and I scored them for $1 each.

I ordered my straws from Jilly Bean Kids.

I spotted strawberry malt balls at Walmart a day or so before the party (probably seasonal?). My mom had just given me these vintage sundae dishes and I thought they were perfect for putting on the tables.

I printed placemats on cardstock. And if you would like to use or edit it, you can download it here. I was inspired by Martha Stewart's placemat/name card combo.

Since the whole fairy theme was based on Ellie's love for Tinkerbell, it was only fitting that she make an appearance. Ellie would have loved the beautiful jars that inspired me over at Heidi Swap's Sprinkle it with Fabulous.

I dipped some strawberry wafers in white chocolate after seeing them on Art Mom's blog. And I made a "Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust" printable for the table which you can also download here.

I really do have more to share BUT I have got to call it a night! Please feel free to leave a comment below or email me privately if you have any questions. More of my inspiration for this party can be found on my Fairy Party board on Pinterest. Nighty night :)
