Enchanted Forest Party Ideas
It’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.
The whimsical enchanted forest party invite, inspired by Little Red Riding Hood, was perfect for the first birthday party celebration!
Party decor included birch branches, wooden crates, birch vases, lanterns, bunting banners, moss, rocks, wood slabs, succulents, ferns, dahlias, hydrangea, billy balls, butterflies and more!
Sweets on the dessert table included “Acorn” Donuts, Mini “Acorns”, Chocolate-Covered Pretzel Twigs, Black Forest Cupcakes (both alcoholic and kid-friendly versions), Fruit of the Forest Pies, “S’mores on a Stick” and an awesome Smash Cake decorated with fresh flowers and foliage and topped with a custom mini bunting banner. Drinks included pink lemonade, cider ale, and assorted bottled beer, pop and juice boxes.
The moss, rocks and wooden place card holders were the perfect complement to the desserts and other decor on the dessert table.
A fun favor station was set up for the kids to choose 3 favors and all the gummy bears they could eat! Games and activities included a ball toss game into birch buckets, bean bag toss/cornhole, a water table, a mini circus tent and fun felt animal masks.
Party guests were asked to wear “woodland attire” and the kids looked adorable in their costumes!
The food for the party was AMAZING and worked well with the woodland theme. Highlights included “Poison Apple Salad,” Potato Salad, “3 Little Pigs in a Blanket,” “Puss in Boots’ Caprese Swords,” and “Magical Mushrooms.”
