When it comes to Tinkerbell Birthday Party ideas, if you believe clap your hands!
When J.M. Barrie first wrote his play Peter Pan, Tinkerbell was barely even a character, represented only by a light and a bell (hence the name). Well, she’s come a long way baby! In addition to being the unofficial Disney mascot, over the last 100 or so years she has evolved into a fully fleshed out character. Tinkerbell (or “Tink” as she’s affectionately referred to) as not only appeared in Peter Pan films, but has also been in the Disney “Princess” franchise as well as start of the spinoff “Disney Fairies”.
Which all helps to explain her recent surge in popularity in the birthday party market.
We all want to ensure our little princess has the birthday party of her dreams. And Disney characters are pretty high on most little girls’ radar. The Princess Parties, including Tinkerbell Birthday Parties, are very popular with girls up to the age of about six. Most little girls go through their Disney stage and Tinkerbell is a fun option that can be themed in with a little creativity and some online research.

Will there be any “fairy” activities that they need to prepare for? A great way to start off any Tinkerbell birthday party is with a dress up.

Tinkerbell Birthday Party Ideas – Fairy-ly Easy Decoration and Decor
Your decor can be as extravagant or as simple as you like. Store bought, homemade or a combination of both. Having the birthday girl help to cut and color some of the decorations is a great way to involve her in the preparation of her own her party. I know one mom who had her daughter’s friends over for a play date a week before the party. They did crafts all afternoon and the following week everyone was very excited to see their own handiwork as part of the decor.
It has never been easier to come up with great Tinkerbell birthday party decorations. It’s not difficult to transform your home into Neverland! Start with printing signs such as “Mermaids Lagoon”, “Pixie Hollow” (where Tink and her friends live) and “Neverpeak Mountain”. Bright colorful construction paper flowers, butterflies and fairies are a great way to set the tone. Fairy colors tend to be pastels but green streamers and balloons can also be used to create the forest in Neverland.
Remember, there are no hard and fast rules! It’s a kid’s birthday so if it’s fun and cheery, it usually works.
