Fairies Galore!

I'm in the beginning stages of planning a fairy birthday party for my almost 6 year old. Really? My little girl, my peanut, is turning 6- wow! Anyways, I have this image in my mind about how I'd like to decorate, but my funds are low. So off to the dollar store I went searching for ideas. Here's what I came up with so far! I'm planning for about 12 children.

Fairy Wand Craft
1 pkg. flower foam shapes (24 count)
2 pkg. Velvet fairy stickers
2 pkg. Markers
Ribbon( variety of colors)

Total cost for this craft ($6) - I still need to find wooden dowels for something else for the handles of the wand.

I found this idea in Family Fun Magazine.
For $1 a bunch I was able to find colorful silk flowers. I'm going to cut them to make individual flowers. Next, I'm going to tape a pixi stick candy to the stem. I'll put them in a vase to decorate and then each child will go home with a "candy" flower.
Total cost for favor ($3)

2 bunches of silk flowers
1 long stem of silk greeenery
I'm going to cut the flowers and glue them to the greenery and drape this across the food table. I have more greeenery of my own that I'm going to use.
1 roll of wallpaper border with fairies- I'm going to cut out the fairies and use them on homemade invites and for decorations.
Total cost for decorations- ($4)

Other supplies
Pink plates
Pink table cloth
Butterfly birthday napkins
Cost- $3

Homemade- thinking about putting silk flowers on top of each cupcake. I wanted to put rings, but didn't find anything that I liked.

Game-Fairy, Fairy, Where's my Flower?
Children will sit in a circle. One child will sit in the middle. The adult will give one child a flower to hide behind back while the child in the middle is closing his or her eyes. Next, the child will open his/her eyes and then all of the children will say-

Fairy, Fairy, Where's my Flower?"
The child in the middle will say-
"Someone has it- is it you?"
and point to a child sitting in the circle.

Each child in the middle will get 3 guesses. The child holding the flower goes in the middle. Repeat until everyone has a turn being the fairy in the middle.

My SIL just made wands for a dress-up party. She used balloon sticks (bought at Zurcher's and cut in half) for the wand handle. She took about 10 pieces of ribbon maybe 6 feet long and then folded the bunch in half and stuffed the ribbon fold down in the hole with glue. The girls loved them. Have a fun fairy party!
