Enchanted Fairy Garden Party Ideas

I would like to have an enchanted fairy garden party. As an adult.

There, I said it.

There is something so fantastically magical about a garden filled with little fairies and butterflies floating around, with toadstool mushrooms and gnomes hidden here and there. With all of the seriousness that being a good grown up involves, I think a nice dose of whimsy should be a prescribed stress reliever.  Something fun, and out of the ordinary. In the case of our enchanted fairy garden party, an outdoor setting doused in plenty of greenery will do the trick.

Of course, in the great party idea bank– also known as Pinterest – there are so many amazing ideas to choose from. I’ve put some of my favorite party ideas together for this themed event, but have pinned nearly 500 other ideas, all along a butterfly, fairy, and garden party –esque theme. Feel free to browse them here.

Here is what I had in mind for this enchanted fairy garden party:

Gold Glitter and Pastel Shades Unicorn Birthday Party Ideas

The cuteness! It’s taking over Pinterest. Unicorns are EVERYWHERE, like an adorable plague of happiness and glitter. And to be honest, I’m not even mad! While we are being honest, I’m not even a super unicorn fan. I mean, I don’t HATE unicorns, no, but I was never like “OH MY GOSH UNICORN EVERYTHING”. But the idea of having a young child’s birthday with a full on, unicorn-fever theme….sounds like something I want to be part of.

Now me being me, I like a bit of bling at my events, thus the gold glitter element of this kid’s birthday party decor. Spectacularly shiny, gold glitter unicorns are found in each element, from the invitation, to unicorn party games, to the cake and dessert display, to even the goodie bags and photo backdrop. Cohesion is what it’s all about!

To balance out all that sparkles and shines, the rainbow colors are all along the pastel shades family, so as to not fight with the sparkling gold glitter unicorns. From what I can tell, based on my extensive unicorn party pinning, (check out my unicorn board on Pinterest if you need more ideas for a unicorn party!), an abundance of rainbows are a must for proper unicorn party, birthday or otherwise. Choosing which shade directions, warm or cool, you choose to go can greatly influence the feel of the event, so be sure to have a clear idea of your event mood before you start your shopping!

Modern and Clean Thanksgiving Decor in Maroon and Turquoise Blue

As we find ourselves in that final stretch before Christmas madness takes over, it’s important to remember that all of the stress we put on ourselves during the holiday season is not as significant as who is around us. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season and forget that all these get togethers and parties are there for us to connect with our friends and family, not to show off or one-up someone’s pumpkin pie. With that mindset at the forefront of your thoughts, allow me to present to you the concept and idea for this week’s Thanksgiving decor idea board.

For this week’s theme, I choose to create a calming but welcoming effect with this modern and clean styling Thanksgiving decor. Maroon and turquoise blue are the heroes of this color palette, with crisp whites and silvery greys accent in the background, merging with the inevitable orange hues of natural autumn decor. Creating such a warm and inviting environment for you and your guests to share can help foster a relaxed and more intimate visit, with the focus on each others company, and not overwhelming decor. Why not try it in these shades?

Here’s what I had in mind for a modern and clean Thanksgiving decor in maroon and turquoise blue:

Summertime Watermelon Party Ideas

Happy National Watermelon Day! August 3rd marks National Watermelon Day each year, did you know that? It’s ok if you didn’t, neither did I. When I found out about it, I was instantly inspired to create the perfect summertime watermelon party idea board for you this week. Whether it’s for a kid’s birthday party, or a backyard BBQ with friends and family, you can’t go wrong with a watermelon theme. The cool, watercolor hues of a natural watermelon are easy on the eyes during the heat of the summer, while the refreshing fruit and juices of the watermelon itself are delicious to consume in a host of different ways.

Here’s what I envisioned for this week’s watermelon themed party idea board:

Eclectic and Colorful Mother’s Day Party Ideas

Bright and bold, full of sunny colors and vibrant accents, this week’s party idea board is the perfect eclectic mix to celebrate mother’s day this year. Mixed florals and textures combine to create this color heavy summery party inspiration board while still looking cohesive and put together.

The balance is in the black and white accents you see here and there. The white table highlights the bright floral centerpieces, while a black and white background helps amplify the fresh flowers in their summer shades. The flat black and white elements really work well together to help make the mix of textures and colors stand out.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Colorful Dinosaur Party Ideas for Girls

Girls like dinosaurs too!

I never got why boys were always the ones having the dinosaur and ninja themed parties, and girls always had to have the spa or princess themed parties. That is just absurd! Girls can like dinosaurs, ninjas, and event racing themed parties too.

And so to honor the strong, confident girls around the world who want to celebrate among dinos, I have put together this week’s inspiration board, for them. The concept was to have a colorful dinosaur birthday party for girls, which was not completely pink, purple and full of gentility.

But you know what I found? It’s actually pretty hard to find dinosaur themed birthday party posts for girls that are not full of princess crowns, tutus, and bright pink. So I thought I would incorporate lots of vibrant colors throughout to make this event perfect for the dino loving little girl that could care less about a tiara and a doesn’t mind what color her dinosaur friends are.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Pink Carnation Inspired Spring Soiree – Party Ideas

Does it feel like spring near you, or is it starting to feel more like summer? This week we have been in the mid 80’s all week, and we are already having to run our AC. I’m trying SO hard not to get into “summer clothes” mode so early in the year, but it is hard with this weather!

So to help me try and cherish whatever spring we have left here in Florida, I’ve put together an adorable pink carnation party idea board. This soiree can be used for any get together you have coming up. I’m thinking baby showers, a bridal party, or even a birthday party with the girls. Carnations are such a versatile flower, and hold up very well. The sphere arrangements you see throughout the party inspiration board give this idea board a more modern vibe, don’t you think?
