  • Magical Woodland Party for all ages!

    This is the perfect time of year for a 'Magical Woodland Party'

    Magic Woodland party

    Make some magic on your child’s birthday with a magical woodland party. Be inspired by Winnie the Pooh – Pipii’s neighbour in the Ashdown Forest, Peter Rabbit, the Gruffalo, flower fairies or any other magical, mythical woodland creatures such as gnomes, elves and goblins. Use plenty of nature imagery too – trees, toadstools, mushrooms, owls and butterflies.

    Decide whether you’ll go out into a woodland near you - Look here - for a party, or bring nature into your home.
    If you’re lucky enough to have a space in your garden to transform, hang bunting, garlands, tea lights, and baubles from trees, tall shrubs or fence posts creating a magical area to eat and play. Create a magic fairy circle with a toadstool in the middle (use a red cushion or cloth with white stickers for spots).

    Use natural decorations for a magic woodland party, for example hanging pine and fir cones tied with ribbon from a garland or dried leaves work really well too, Raffia is a good alternative to strings & twine too. Moss and berries are essentials.

    Please see some suggestions for more magical woodland birthday party ideas:

    Magical woodland party food:

    Toadstool cupcakes – decorate with red icing overhanging the edge of the cake, with white chocolate chips as the spots.

    Use edible flowers on a birthday cake or cupcake – violets, rose petals, lavender and marigolds all look gorgeous, as do our edible wafer butterflies.

    Create a magical woodland floor salad with toadstools nestled in a bed of green lettuce and cucumber. Make the toadstools with half a tomato fixed onto a boiled egg with mayonnaise spots. Use cocktail sticks to keep them together.

    Fairy bread – popular at children’s parties in Australia. Spread sliced white bread with margarine or butter and cover with hundreds and thousands.

    Magical woodland party creative crafts:

    Woodland art – depending on the time of year, collect fir cones, leaves, seed pods, sticks, feathers and let the children do the rest.

    Dream catchers – your party guests can take them home or you can use them as party decorations. Our bakers twine is great for this activity.

    Animal or magical woodland creature masks – have templates ready for colouring in and decorating. This is a great welcome activity.

    Magical woodland party games:

    Find the fairy – hide some fairies in your garden or party space for the children to find. Use flower fairy images or the cup cake toppers if you have any left over for this game.

    Or shake some fairy dust on traditional party games, for example, musical fairies, or pin the wand on the fairy.

    BUT lets not forget the about the ones who are kids at heart!!
    Nothing like autumn to get you on the mood for a winter warming evening or weekend with friends, a walk in the wild woods, stew brewing a home and the log fire burning. Proper Danish 'hygge' if ever I had to describe it...

    And don't forget to set the scene with toasty (and easy as they don't need to washed up but can go straight into the compost). Palm leaf plates or bowls, beautiful autumn rose hip napkins or the fun and festive prints from Vicky Sawyer.
    Dot the table with pine cones and other seasonal find...etc etc...see some idea below or go to for inspirational products.
