Woodland Gnome & Fairy Birthday {Boy Girl}

By  | Last Updated:  

I hear from people all the time that choosing a theme for boy-girl twins is so hard. But with this Woodland Gnome and Fairy party (awesome theme!), Marti from Rugged Filly makes it look effortless.Simply lovely, in fact, are the words that came to mind as soon as I saw it.

And the details are even more adorable! The party began with the kids using a hand drawn map to go on an adventure through the bamboo forest, under the old pine tree and across the log bridge. The girls wore fairy wings and had magic wands, the boys had red felt gnome hats and walking sticks and they collected hidden treasures along the way. There was even a stop for tea and water play in the magical waterfall (i.e. a 50ft slip n slide).

How to Throw Your Own Woodland Gnome and Fairy Party

  • A low dining table that seated 15 little party guests (they DIY’ed it!!!) and stump stools instead of chairs
  • <oss placemats, stone place cards, bamboo plates, and cloth napkins
  • Handmade details including¬†hiking sticks, fairy wands and acorn necklaces
  • “Red” menu including drinkable Gazpacho, pimento cheese sandwiches for the kids, (muffulettas for the grownups), tomato lollipops and toadstool cupcakes

I love how they drilled holes into a log to display the “tomato pops!”

He has taught her that it’s okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots.
