For a long time, woodland parties have been popular. And it’s not without reason. Nature, forest creatures, fairies, and gnomes are just a few of the classic themes that have been reintroduced into party planning.
A woodland-themed party is a great way to get kids to connect with nature. Outdoors, where nature’s magic is abundant and there is no sign of commercialism, an enchanted woodland party is best thrown.
Woodland Theme Party Ideas
There are many great forest party ideas and party games that would work for both girls and boys of all ages when arranging a woodland themed party.
It’s perfect for a fairy search, teepee tent, and campfire stories. The children donned snowsuits and wellington boots and revealed themselves in the crisp winter air.
We believe that all events and celebrations should be considerate of our resources. So, if you’re throwing a woodland or forest party, you’ll want to be particularly careful not to turn it into a shopping spree in the name of charming squirrels and foxes.
Here are some cute ideas for throwing an eco-friendly woodland party.
Woodland Theme Party Decorations
Outside, create a cozy, picnic-style seating area. Use what you have (note how the place settings aren’t all matching) and forage for natural decorations like pinecones and wildflowers.
Build the magic with carefully chosen decorations or ‘gifts’ from the fairies, and use woodland hints of magic to mark an unique forest trail, backyard nook, or park.
Outdoor fairy doors or windows are a simple, reusable, and one-of-a-kind approach to pique the interest of partygoers.
Take the kids on a fairy stroll, a scavenger hunt, or an eye-spy activity and see how interested and joyful they are!
Especially for children’s birthday parties, an outside party decreases the amount of mess that must be cleaned up at the end of the day.
A woodland-themed birthday party might be held in the garden or in the backyard. Another thing to think about is that wood birthday parties can help with social isolation.
Outdoor fairy door
There was a tea set in an abandoned tree house built into the forest, felt acorn capped ornaments hanging from branches, a lovely fairy house borrowed from a friend, wooden bird houses hanging in branches, a bucket of wooden wands that each little girl enjoyed keeping, and our personal favorite – the outdoor fairy door.
A fairy hunt in the woods can be organized for a woodland fairy celebration. In the woods, the kids can also construct a hidden den.
You can make a fairy washing line out of Barbie clothes, as well as some great woodland theme signage.
We set up a teepee tent just in case the weather changed or it poured, and we had a few creative things planned inside.
Woodland Theme Party Games & Activities
A woods party is suitable for people of all ages. It’s even appropriate for a first birthday celebration. Campfire songs and wood party games are among the activities available for younger children.
Pine cone hunt
Hide some silver, gold, or rainbow-colored pine cones for the kids to discover.
Party pinatas are popular and come in a variety of forms and sizes. Consider woodland animals, pine cones, or stars if you’re organizing a woodland party.
Kids can build a fairy or forest animal mask, or they can choose from a variety of free printables and coloring activities.
Pass the parcel
Every child enjoys playing with the parcel. Sit in a teepee tent/gazebo or on tree trunks, camping chairs, or a teepee tent/gazebo.
The concealed objects can be found by younger youngsters until they find the queen fairy! The children can make a wish and share their wishes and dreams with the queen fairy.
Woodland clay faces
The children build faces out of clay and attach them onto the trees using twigs, leaves, and glitter.
A Fairy or wizard hunt
For older youngsters, a wizard harry potter party is a fantastic concept. You can utilize a variety of clues to guide you to the fairy queen, or have bags/bottles of glitter that the children drop around the fairy queen’s house to make their wish.
Build a den
Building a den house is a fun activity for kids, and the forest is a great place to do it together. Running around seeking for wood keeps them warm as well!
Another activity you can make for them is to sing along and dance!

Woodland parties are among the most enjoyable for parents to prepare because every parent has a little ‘Peter Pan Syndrome’ — a desire to believe in fairies and never grow up.
Inspire true enchantment, and appreciate the traces of it long after your guests have left.
The last thing guests remember about their magical day with the fairies is their loot bags!
Don’t put cheap plastic toys in the bags. Include a beautiful felted present instead to carry the magic home.
Party guests will find felt toadstools, rings, and ponytail holders in their take-home bags, which are both functional and enjoyable.
