Tinkerbell Makes a Magical Birthday

For my niece’s first birthday, my sister wanted to do something truly magical! The theme for her party was Tinkerbell's Magical Garden. Her special day was full of wonder, and guests were amazed by the creative, affordable and environmentally-friendly d├ęcor. You can make an amazing birthday for your child with custom invitations, signs and personalized tags. Adding a little inspiration from nature will provide the final touches.

The invitations set the tone with a simple tug of the tag and bow, the invitation is tucked inside a perfect pouchette in metallic Fairway Green. The bow accent is a combination of purple double-faced satin and light blue organza ribbon, tied and secured to the tag for easy access to the invitation inside.

Rhinestones were added to the tags for a little sparkle.


Once they arrived at the party, guests were directed by custom signs to join the celebration in the backyard and gazebo. The signs announced your arrival at "Never Never Land" and "Tinkerbell’s Magical Garden." The buffet was set up under a temporary party tent, with a sign featuring the "Woodland Buffet." 


The buffet tables were decorated with simple green tablecloths, decorated with a display of white Christmas lights and a recycled gold organza overlay on top. Pine cones and wildflower petals plucked from the field nearby add a woodland scatter. Matching buffet cards indicated a hint of whimsy and continued with the Peter Pan theme, with titles such as “Snails” "Woodland Punch," "Tink’s Magical Dip,” “Peter Panwiches” and more. 

Last but not least, no party is final without the perfect favors. Guests received a small bag of Pixie Dust. Girls were offered fairy wings and wands to play in the Magical Garden, while the boys were given pirate hats and swords to play Peter fighting against the story’s villain, Captain Hook.

Make your party memorable with custom invitations, signs and tags from Affordable Wedding Invites by Gossett Printing.
