Spring is here! The changing of seasons is great time for a fairy tea party.
We did one in the fall and it was great fun. I wanted to keep the party small so I decided just to invite our girl friends. The girls all dressed up as fall fairies and everyone contributed some yummy fall food. Apple-cranberry chicken salad sandwiches, pumpkin bread, apple crisp, etc. We had cinnamon tea and apple cider and drank them in adorable little tea cups. We had our gathering outside, surrounded by apple trees and fall leaves. It was lovely.
After the tea party all the girls gathered on a picnic blanket and I read this Fairy Houses book. It is a really cute story about a girl who makes a fairy house in the woods and waits for fairies to come enjoy the house. While she waits, the house is visited by different forest creatures. I like that it talks about only using things from nature, which is really good to keep in mind when building a fairy house in the forest. We did not follow these rules because we were making our houses for our backyards 🙂
After the story all the girls made their own fairy house. The houses were adorable! They were all very different. The girls all brought their own fairy house base and some craft supplies to share.
Big Sis set her house up under a lilac bush, and even made a little tree for her fairy. Then she put a toy fairy in there to live. Because although she loves to dream and pretend and imagine, she is far too practical to think that a real fairy would come to live in her house. haha
I hope someone decides to have a spring fairy party! Let me know how it goes 🙂
