It is that time of year when little fairies are everywhere and ready for a fairy themed party. Make a little magic by inviting little fairies to come celebrate the warm afternoons and evenings with games and activities dressed in their fairy costume best. What could more fun than having a Fairy party just for fun. If you have little ones who love to dress up then this party will be the highlight of the summer. Let’s begin with the costumes.

This little Snail costume above is so sweet and unique with a tail that lights up. Both of these little snail costumes are wonderful don’t you think? Every fairy party needs a little snail to join in the fun.

Fairy Sprite

This fairy sprite is dressed in a leotard and tulle skirt and tulle ruffle at the neck. All in greens makes it a fairies favorite color. A simple shoe made with ribbon and a flower finishes it so simply and beautifully.

Fairy Wings

Sometimes a simple flowing dress is all a fairy needs to show off her magical wings. You can get the pattern for these little wings here to complete a fairy costume. You could add a crown made of vines and flowers to take it over the top of fairy fashion.
