Let your imagination soar with a magical Fairy Tea theme, always a delight for children, as well as adults. Decorate your table with a strip of bright green moss and scatter it with leaves, acorns, and silk butterflies. Silk butterflies are easily found at your local craft store. For a floral center piece, use snapdragons, day-lilies or other fanciful flowers. I recommend using flowers that attract butterflies, fairies are attracted to the same blooms for their sweet nectar. Hang white twinkle fairy lights overhead and use as many pink and green dishes as you can round up. Yellow dishes add a burst of sunshine to the settings. Begin your tea with cream scones, strawberry jam and Devonshire cream. Ham and cheese quiche makes a delicious main course, and red velvet cupcakes are a perfect dessert. I For the children attending your Fairy Tea, be sure to serve strawberry juice in teacups and peanut butter and jelly tea sandwiches. If you have a supply of gossamer wings or magic wands for your real life fairies, so much the better. And please do remember, fairies were a particular favorite of the British Victorians.
“When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.” James M. Barrie
