introducing woodland fairy

thecelebrationshoppe_fairyplacesetting_kk

My mom used to tell the most beautiful woodland fairy stories to my nieces, who are now teenagers (stop growing girls!), vividly outlining the smallest details. One of my favorites was that the fairies were tiny and typically unseen unless you knew where to look. So when we started developing this fairy theme, I thought of those stories and how my nieces little faces would light up listening to my mom’s magical fairytale. As you browse this collection’s decor, know that the moss on the cake plate, the squirrel in the forest and the sparkles on the invitation are all tributes to my mom’s creativity. {Love you Mom!}

I chose hot pink and lime green polka dot decor for this collection not only because it’s modern and oh so popular, but because pink is very fairy, right. And the green of course is very woodland. I know… I’m a genius {smirk}. We then incorporated splashes of light pink and brown throughout the invitation and printables collection for the softer side of modern. And don’t you just love the plaid tree!

This is one view of the cupcake pick and wrapper set. There are four pick designs that could easily be mixed and matched with a few simple punches (2.5″ circle and 2″ scallop punches shown with foam adhesive squares for deminsion).

This is a tight shot of the pick I lovingly call Woodland Forest.

And this one is even closer. See the little squirrel and the bird houses?! This is the same image used on the invitations.

I love how the fairies have sparkles on thier toes on this one.

The green gingham in this pick is also available in the straw slips.

This is just one of the six straw slip designs: hot pink with green polka dots (like the cupcake wrappers), light pink sparkles (like the sky in the invite), green gingham, green and white polka dot, green with pink flowers (shown and same as napkin ring) and light green and light pink polka dots. Just write each little fairy’s name (thin Sharpie works best) on her slip and no worries about the little ones confusing cups… that is unless they can’t read yet. {wink} Plus, since our shatterproof cups can survive the dishwasher, you don’t want to ruin them by writing directly on them.

For the placecard and/or food marker, perfect for candy tables and buffets, we made the tallest tree extend past the typical rectangle just to be unique.

And for the napkin ring, we paired the hot pink polka dot napkin with a lime green ring embellished with mini white and hot pink flowers.

On to the favors. We created both woodland forest scene cello bag toppers, and

two favor tags: woodland forest scene and hot pink polka dot fairies.

Oh, and we can’t forget the fairy wand cookie cutter. A dash of sparkling crystal sprinkles and they will be irresistable, and the perfect treat for the cello bags.

As always we added a few touches here and there to the table for the shoot. The cake plate was embellished with strips of moss and the base was surrounded by a fern, moss and branch spring wreath. There were also small flower arrangements, sprigs of hot pink and white flowers, along the table. You can see them behind some of the cupcake images. And last but not least, a fairy herself perched on the edge of the cake plate. Okay, actually it’s a butterfly, but it’s all about the imagination, right?! {wink}

Make sure you hop on over to the shoppe for all the woodland fairy details. Have a great weekend everyone!
