4th of July Party Ideas – Fairy Godmother Friday

Happy (almost) 4th of July!

Here at Fairy Godmother, we love celebrating just about any and every holiday that we can… and what better way to show our patriotism than with an Independence Day party?!

Bringing in all things American from pinwheels to four wheels… We have you covered!

It is hot, hot, hot! Summer is definitely in full force here in Bakersfield, so we wanted to make this party simple! 

Summer is definitely in full force here in Bakersfield, so we wanted to make this party simple. We guarantee that most of your decor items are already things that you may have laying around from years past, lets put them to use.

First, your tablescape. 

This is where you will entertain your guests as they relax under the patio, or inside, while maybe the kids are out in the pool or finding things to do.

We used pinwheels and some red, white and blue fabric to bring the table to life. Adding in splashes of color with Jones’ soda, the cutest wooden utensils, and the perfect napkin fold!

Of course, what Fairy Godmother design would it be if it didn’t have a little bit of sparkle… Almost like a firework!

 And it doesn’t stop there… Your party can be anything you want it to be.

Over the top, or extra simple… But never, ever do you want to make it complicated! 

Your decor elements can be loosely placed around your chosen space, but don’t forget presentation!

We decided to use this super awesome 1954 Chevrolet as our sweets “table!”

We know that yellow isn’t in the normal patriotic “color scheme,” but what better way to show off your American muscle?!

What sweets are going to satisfy your patriotic appetite?

How about frozen whipped cream strawberries, sprinkle-dipped marshmallow rods, or some of these fabulously decorated Cookie Monger cookies!

 Don’t forget to stay hydrated! 

 Now, what do you think about infusing your water station with various red and blue berries?!

A super easy and fun way to keep the theme of your event on track while remaining completely stress-free!

Most of all, stay safe this holiday and have the best time ever spreading your own magic!

Easter Brunch – Fairy Godmother Friday

For this “Fairy Godmother Friday” we want to help you get ready for your Easter brunch!

We loved designing our Easter collaboration, with a fabulous team of “friendors” we were able to bring out the best that springtime had to offer!

First things first.

You will have to gather some holiday décor, but don’t fret! You probably have everything you need right in the comfort of your own home.

Starting with the simple things… A spring wreath, some Easter literature and egg ornaments are some of the more simple options that allow you to engulf your guests in this festive experience!

Now lets get hoppin’!

Invitations can be for all occasions! Invite your guests with the best paper products, remember less is more and simple is elegant!

At a proper table setting, napkins are purely a necessity. What if we took that necessity and turned into more… like bunny rabbit décor!

With the proper fold you can turn that boring old napkin into Mr. Cottontail himself, now how fun is that?!

Let’s talk about some of the rabbit food… Florals!

Flowers always steal the show, but what if there was just a little “something” more?

In our Fairy Godmother styled concept shoot, we added a lush basket of mixed greenery complete with tulips and even some cabbage!

Yummy bites with a bit of garnish add that much needed flare to bring out the green accents, juxtaposing the light yellow colors with the bright greens.

And what makes brunch taste even better? Yummy treats of course!

Chocolate covered bunnies and pastel ombré cakes make for the perfect dessert!

Of course, if you add a little festive wildlife you may have an even “hoppier” event!

 While your brunch may be so elegantly exerted, we all know who which attendees will really steal the show!
