Let your little girl live out her fantasy of being both a fairy and a princess with a fairy princess-themed birthday party. She and her friends will be thrilled with the party, from the fancy invites to the beautiful cake. Move away from the traditional pink princess party to incorporate more elements of magic and nature into a fairy princess birthday party.

Use calligraphy and heavy parchment paper to make royal invitations---complete with a wax seal. Or, send out invitations by butterfly---cut butterfly shapes out of card stock, decorate the wings with glitter and attach pipe cleaner antennae. Ask guests to come in their fanciest princess dresses. At the door, provide each fairy princess with a sparkling tiara, fairy wings and a wand from the dollar store.
Decorate the party room with silk flower garlands, paper flower cutouts and twinkle lights. Add artificial bees, butterflies and leaves. An alternative is to cover the ceiling with helium balloons with sparkly ribbon hanging down from each to create an otherworldly look. Group stuffed animals around the room as observant forest creatures and make sure the table is set with a lacy cloth, a tea set and plenty of flowers. For an added touch, hang poster paper with a brick or stone pattern on the wall to recreate a castle wall.
The possibilities for a fairy princess cake are endless. Cut and frost a sheet cake to look like an open book, with the words "Once upon a time..." piped on. Or create a pink princess castle using frosted upside down sugar cones as castle turrets on a cake base. Pipe on details such as a castle door, windows and trailing ivy vines. Another option is to create a woodland scene by placing a small round mirror on the top of a frosted cake as a pond, and piping on grass, flowers and other details. Place small plastic fairy figures into the scene. A doll cake will also be a big hit---purchase a doll cake kit where the body is a doll and the cake is her skirt. Decorate the skirt and torso with frosting to create a breathtaking fairy princess gown.
Infuse traditional games with the fairy princess theme, such as Pin the Wings on the Fairy. Let guests decorate their own tiaras made of craft foam or string beads for fancy necklaces. Play freeze dance, where the fairies dance to music, but freeze when it stops. Have fun with a flowerpot ring toss, a piñata and Fairy Queen Says (like Simon Says). Provide flower- and star-shaped sugar cookies for guests to frost and decorate. Let little fairy princesses earn their wings by completing a gentle obstacle course (walk backwards around the watering can; step through the hanging hula hoop). Don't forget some time to blow bubbles to release fairy magic into the world.
Gift bags full of trinkets like lip gloss, erasers, body glitter, bubble wands and costume jewellery make fine fairy princess party favours. Let guests take home the tiaras and wands provided at the start. Use the gift bags as the treasure in a hunt where an evil wizard has stolen the fairy treasure and the smart and brave fairy princesses must find them.
