A few days ago I stopped in to Walmart to pick up our copy of the long awaited Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast!! To say we were excited would be an understatement. In fact, in my excitement, I had lost all sense of the date and went to Walmart on March 2nd (the day BEFORE the DVD was released) Avery and I went back again on the 3rd and my little pixie tracked down a copy for us! She even conned me into buying her a couple more fairies to add to her growing collection.
We hurried home, and immediately popped the movie in the DVD player (Someday we’ll be high tech enough for BLU-RAY) and settled in for the cutest, sweetest, and funniest Tinker Bell movie yet! Even Dave loved it!!
I planned my party! I wanted the party to really be about the details, and to feel like it was being held in Pixie Hollow! Avery picked out some beautiful pink flowers and I arranged them like they were spilling out of an old pitcher. I put out a “blanket” of moss, and spread acorns and pine cones around. I also put small crystal beads all around to give the look of dew drops. Since Tink is a Tinker Fairy, I wanted to put out small objects that I would expect to see around her home like thimbles, buttons, a magnifying glass and this fancy broken
dinglehopper fork. As a finishing touch, I picked up some “fairy lights” to give a hint of pixie dust! Of course, the fairies came out to join the fun! Periwinkle, Silvermist, Rosetta, and Tink!! For the cake I made a small, 5 layer ombre cake in Tinker Bell green with pink frosting and sparkles! I made Pixie Pops (Avery called them Fairy wands) with sprinkle coated marshmallows (dip marshmallow in water, shake off the excess, and roll in colored sugar) And Morning Dew (lemonade with lemon sparkling water and sliced lemons and limes) to quench our thirst. The Fairy Fruity Flowers were a big hit! Using different sized flower cookie cutters, I cut out the pineapple and kiwi, then topped with a raspberry. I also made traditional Fairy Bread! Fairy Bread is simple, and sweet. White bread, spread with butter, and sprinkled with nonpareills. It is a popular party treat in Australia, and I thought it would be a perfect addition to our party fare!

Come up here, O dusty feet!
Here is fairy bread to eat.
Here in my retiring room,
Children ,you may dine
On the golden smell of broom
And the shade of pine;
And when you have eaten well,
Fairy stories hear and tell.
Next I made one of our favorite treats! Pixie Hollow Pudding! I made this last year for Avery’s 2nd birthday and knew it had to be a part of this party as well!Ingredients:
Chocolate pudding (Prepared according to package instructions)
Graham crackers, crushed
Candy rocks or similar
Green food coloring
Step 1. Crush graham crackers and put aside.
Step 2. Fill cups, jars or bowls with pudding,
Step 3. Top with graham cracker crumbs
Step 4. add a couple drops of green food coloring to coconut and mix until you have the color you want.
Step 5. Sprinkle coconut on top of graham crackers.
Step 6. Add candy, and serve!
Now, what kind of party would this be without a fun activity and something for guests to take home?
We’re still underneath 100 feet of snow here in New England, but I wanted to do an activity that made it feel a bit more like Spring. So, I thought of a fun Fairy Garden kit that guests can make, and bring home to put out in their yard (if/when the snow melts!)
I picked up some items at the craft store that I thought would be fun for a fairy garden! You can prep the kits for each guest, OR you could put all the items out on a table and let them pick and choose their own! Avery and I worked together to make a cute little garden for Tink! What do you think? I think she likes it!
We also spent some time coloring! You can get some fun (and FREE) Tinker Bell coloring and activity sheets by clicking below:
So what do you think? Is this a party fit for a pixie?
