These darling mushrooms will be a hit! Use raspberries and marshmallows or tomatoes and mozzarella. Place these atop green colored coconut or leafy lettuce. Every fairy needs a mushroom stool, right?

What a great idea! You can use these individually wrapped Babybel cheeses to make ladybugs! Add some spots, and you’re ready to serve in a flash. We’re pretty certain that these cute beetles are some of the fairies’ favorites.
If you’ve got some sandwich bags, pipe cleaners, and some snacks, you can make these butterflies. Fill the bags with cereal, fruit, crackers, veggies, or a mix of things. You could put carrots in one wing and cheese cubes in the other. You know your guests best, so do whatever you know they’ll enjoy.
You’ve got to have a way to wash all these fairy-inspired snacks down, right? Label your signature punch or lemonade as “fairy potion.” If it’s an adults-only party, you might add a splash of something extra!

Meringues of any flavor are so light and airy. Just like a fairy! They remind us of dewdrops on plants after rain. I love to think about fairies sipping the dew from leaves in the mornings, maybe even washing their teeny faces in the small puddles.
6. MAGIC WANDS
Watermelon and blueberry wands are so much fun. Before munching on them, you can give them a little wave in the air. You may also used grapes, kiwi, pineapple slices, etc. to make the wands. Whatever you have will work. Just add a large topper, and presto!

Fairies collect acorns for their cups, bowls, and even hats. So these little brown, earthy gems fit right in. Use mini vanilla cookies and chocolate drops to construct these edible nuts. Simple and delicious!
8. CATERPILLARS AND SNAILS

Break out the celery and a variety of fruits and veggies to design some crawlers. Cream cheese, peanut butter, and edible eyeballs will help you get this job done. Grapes, olives, tomatoes, raisins, apples, oranges, limes, kiwis, cherries, oh my! The possibilities are seemingly endless.
9. FAIRY QUEEN CROWNS
Make PB&J or cucumber sandwiches for your guests, but don’t leave the sandwiches as boring squares. Use a crown cookie cutter to give an element of royalty. We need to honor Her Fairy Highness, of course!
You’ll have to think ahead for this beautiful trick, but this hard work will not go unnoticed. Freezing edible flowers in ice cubes adds so much to a fairy garden party table. It looks especially lovely in lemonade, fresh water, or even champagne cocktails!
