Enchanted Forest Party Ideas

enchanted-forest-party-ideasIt’s not easy putting together an Enchanted Forest as magical as this one. Sit down and take note because there are some fabulous Enchanted Forest Party Ideas that look like they come straight out of a storybook!

 Aria’s 1st Birthday in the Enchanted Forest was inspired by Fantastic Mr. Fox and Shrek and stories like Little Red Riding Hood, Goldy Locks and the Three Bears, and Snow White. Kristen of Kio Kreations did an amazing job creating a whimsical atmosphere with earthy florals and rustic/woodland decor.
