For Millie’s 4th birthday this year, she chose a Neverland Party theme.
And yes… I am just now FINALLY posting about this Neverland Party that was all the way back in September. To say that life has been crazy & busy would be an understatement.
Photographs from the Neverland Party were taken from the lovely Hunter K. Fowler. She’s such a gem and it was so nice having her at the party. Definitely helped take the stress of capturing it all off of me (who was running around like a crazy person). I am so grateful to her that we have these beautiful pictures to remember all the fun forever!
What started as a Tinkerbell Fairy Party turned into a full-blown Neverland Party Extravaganza! I definitely was over ambitious with this one and had SO many ideas that I didn’t have time to execute.
OFF TO NEVERLAND
Activity: Confetti “Pixie Dust” Drop.
Music: “You Can Fly” from Disney’s Peter Pan.
If I were to do it again, I would use the balloon sticks (from Black Dog Inc.), or string them like a banner and have them hung so that we could pop more quickly.
Hunting Fairy Treasure
Once the kiddos were dressed up in their fairy & pirate costumes, we started a great big hunt for Fairy & Hidden Treasure.
I seriously cannot believe how incredible and adorable this customized treasure map of my parent’s backyard that Joyce from Sugar Blue Gifts made for this party!
The kids had little bags to take with them to each Neverland station – As they found tiny treasures along the way.
Activity: Crocodile Ring Toss
Music: “Never Smile at a Crocodile”
Activity: Plank Walk
Music: “Never Smile at a Crocodile” & “Following the Leader”
I put a wood plank on a roll of water looking paper (the kind that teachers use for their classroom walls – on clearance in October btw) and had the kids take turns balancing and walking the plank just like Wendy.
Activity: Smee’s Tattoo Parlor
Music: “A Pirates Life”
I found some beautiful watercolor, white ink, Tinkerbell, and flash temporary tattoos. So the kids visited Smee’s Tattoo Parlor.
Activity: Freeze Dance around the Fire
Music: “What Made Red Man Red” from Peter Pan Movie”
Definitely make sure you check out these Tee-Pees – they’re very durable, can be used inside or out, & even large enough for adults!
Activity: Making Fairy Houses
Music: Tinkerbell Movies Playlist
First things first, HALLELUJAH for Gathre mats!!!!!! Seriously… this activity had:
15 (or more) kids + 3 toddlers walking around + Loads of paint = a recipe for a mess of epic proportions…
But it wasn’t! All I had to do to clean up is hose off the Gathre mat and let it air dry!
I got some little wood pieces for them to paint little houses then I had miniature trees, ladybugs, tiny grass, & more to go in little glass globe terrariums. I got some Tinkerbell cupcake toppers from Kiss Hug Design, but when Millie saw them, she insisted we use them for the fairy houses. She is getting so creative – it’s so fun to see!
I did bring in a lot of great fairy house pieces but then I thought about the short time & young ages so I’ll probably use those for another time.
LOST BOYS HIDEOUT
Activity: Follow the Leader & Pinata
Music: “Following the Leader” from Disney’s Peter Pan Original Soundtrack
My parent’s playground was perfect for the Lost Boys Hideout. The kids even went back and played again after birthday cake & presents.
I made these Neverland Party invitations using illustrator & my Cricut Explore. I used the “print then cut” for the center brown textured paper & the cut setting for the leafy green cut out folder.
We had to move the date up unexpectedly because we were able to have more family & Jaycob in town so some of my plans and products didn’t arrive in time.
Millie was going to wear this incredible custom handmade Tinkerbell dress from Spain by Claudia of COSE COSÌ.
Millie’s handmade detailed Tinkerbell wings in these pictures I took on Halloween (just below), were made by Wicked Fairy Wings.
The pretty face glitter is from Karizma London Beauty and made her feel so special!
She was absolutely thrilled about every piece of this costume and the Tinkerbell shoes (that glow-in-the-dark) were the cherry on top!
Because of all the shipping delays with the terrible storms and hurricanes, they arrived just a few days after the party. But it’s ok – Millie wears it almost every day & wore it for Halloween.
Both shops quality is impeccable. I just love the creativity COSE COSÌ used to create the skirt out of leaf-shaped pieces. Wicked Wings detail is perfect and stunning!
The Pirate’s got eye patches & swords.
The Pixie’s received fairy wings, wands, & Happily Felt made the girls some adorable felt flower headbands that made them feel so special! Millie wants to wear hers every day now.
CAKE, Cookies, & Goodies
I cannot even begin to explain how effortless it was to work with A Piece of Cake (Utah) – working with her definitely lived up to her company’s name!
Kathy’s work & detail is impeccable! I absolutely love the creative designs she came up with to incorporate all the different party aspects.
Millie was so thrilled when she saw her Neverland Cake & still keeps asking if we can have another one.
A Piece of Cake (Utah) also made the adorable customized cookies & even brought gluten-free edible Fairy Star Wands just in case some kids couldn’t eat the cookies & cake. Kathy is so incredibly thoughtful!
The glass jar lids and adorable straws are from More Sprinkled Joy. I was able to pick my own pack of straws that went perfectly with the theme – fairy, woodland, pirate mustaches, etc. I absolutely love these! I can use them for any gathering & it makes it simply more special.
I rented the wood tree rounds from Rustic Wood Slices. They added a nice woodland feel.
Food & Treats-
- Hook’s ‘Pirates Booty’
- ‘Peg Leg’ Pretzels
- ‘Skull Rock’ Candy
- Sea Salt Chips
- ‘Pixie Stix’
- Twigs & Berries
- Smee’s Cannon Balls (round cheese puffs)

Some of the party supplies that I made or bought I am going to sell – like the Neverland signs, large tissue paper flowers, etc.
