Forest Fairy Birthday Party

Brace yourself, and prepare to be blown away. This party is one of the most utterly enchanting fairy parties we have ever seen!

From woodland to forest to flower fairy parties, this one certainly takes the cake.

 Sharnel styled this stunning party for her daughter Olivia's birthday, and the gorgeous images were captured by Leanne of Leanne Stamatellos Photography.

 What struck us most were the forest creatures Sharnel had brought in for the party (with a real fairy too, of course!), truly enchanting each of the fairy guests--a brilliant form of entertainment! The fawn is so innocent and precious.

A soft bunny was snuggled tight by many of the forest fairies gathered in a circle.

Each fairy was presented with proper fairy attire--don't they look darling as they frolic in the forest?

Toadstools were created for seating at the table (and Sharnel even provides a tutorial in creating these!), making the table design truly magical.

Check out all of the precious details as the guests gather round--from the grass and flower placemats to the pink and white striped straws--no detail was left unforgotten.

We are in love with the gorgeous butterfly decorations hanging overhead--aren't these amazing?

The beverages (check out the creative names!!!) look lovely, and even more lovely are the magical decorations hanging overhead.

Sharnel used forest creatures to decorate her party, such as this spooktacular own... well as this sweet little fawn...

She also incorporated them into the desserts, like these darling fawn cookies (*love*)!

Check out the hedgehog cupcakes--not sure what we love more, the cupcakes or the darling custom printed sign for them (invites and printables created by the lovely Style Me Gorgeous)!

The sweet table is presented with a personalized banner behind, and creates a beautiful look as it is all pulled together, don't you think?

The cake, oh, the cake--beautifully designed and almost too pretty to eat.

The fairies enjoyed sharing secrets and playing with one another in the great outdoors as many forest fairies do!

An enormous thank you to Sharnel for allowing us to share her brilliant party. For those of you who are asking--yes, Sharnel is a new children's party planner in Australia (Sharnel Dollar Designs), and you will absolutely want to check out her blog here for plenty more inspiration on this party (there is SO much more that we simply didn't have room to share--so you will have to hop over to her blog for the entire party), as well as her other creations.

*Sharnel also shares many details on where to purchase the products shown in this party to recreate the look!!!*
We see Sharnel as a tremendously unique, creative talent, and can't wait to see what she creates next! Thank you Sharnel!
