My daughter is turning 5 and wants a fairy party at a fairy shop. We were thinking of inviting her whole class, the majority of which are boys, about 70%.If your son was invited would you think it was inappropriate? I am thinking perhaps calling it a fairy and something (?) party.

Not inappropriate at all.

My son wouldn't be interested.  He never did the sparkly fariy thing.  Lots of boys do though.

Maybe say its a fairy & wizards party if your worried about the boys not liking fairies.

No they would hate that. Why not make it a pirate and fairy party? That he would enjoy.

My son is only 3, but he'd love it!  I'm not sure what older boys are like...

My nephew #1 would be in 7th heaven!
#2 would go for cake.
(he however would also go to a party at the sewerage farm if there was cake so that somewhat invalidates his opinion!)

My son would love it!

Some kids would screw their noses up but that would help me trim out the kids I'd be happy mine not be besties with. wink.gif

My 5 year old would, in fact he went to one last year and they made it a dress up party and most of the boys turned up as pirates.  original.gif He really enjoyed himself, but I think if was just fairies he would probably wouldn't of enjoyed it as much.

My 6yo DS would love it! So would my 3yo DS's. My DSS is 6 and would probably not like it.

What do they do at the party at the fairy party shop? I just visited a fairy party shop on the weekend and they said they have boys dress ups for boys and do things for the boys etc. I would call it fairy and pirates too!

My almost 5 yr old wouldn't care, he loves absolutely any party as long as there is cake and other kids there.

What about making it a Magic Party? You could have fairies, pixies, dragons, witches and wizards. Personally I would have hated fairies, and I'm a girl  ph34r.gif

No my 5 year old wouldn't go as he is coming to that age where gender is becoming more apparent

Fairy stories.

That way children of either sex could come as fairies, trolls, mermaids, shining knights, princesses etc.

I would call the fairy shop and ask them what they do for boys..im sure theyd have a contingency plan..

I'm back again to add that I think when I was either 4 or 5  I had a fairy themed birthday party in our backyard. A heap of kids came from the neighbourhood and the girls were in fairy costumes and the boys were in pixie costumes. I still have old movie footage of us all running around having a ball! original.gif

My dd had her party at the fairy shop when she was 7, she had 3 boys and they loved it.  They came dressed as wizards, harry potter etc, played loads of games.

#21 Feral Grey Mare

Not all girls are that excited about dressing up as fairies either (my DD would have run a mile from frills or pink at that age - actually at any age... she much preferred dressing as a horse!) I think by making it a wider theme you will keep all happy.

A party is a party as far as my DS is concerned - he had a great time at Snow Whites party on the weekend. He's having a Star Wars party in a few weeks for his 5th birthday, the girls can like it or lump it.

As long as there is cake and a party bag most 5 year olds would be happy!

#23 adnama

DS is 4 and he would love it, but he would he would go.
Mind you is he liking "boy" things more but he often will pop on one of his sisters dancing tutu's.

But I would make it a wider theme as well. DD's 4th birthday was mermaids and pirates

My granddaughter had a fairy party at the "Fairies House" last weekend and all the little girls loved it, but her brother and his best friend were taken somewhere else by their fathers - probably the "Wall of Death". roll2.gif

Agree with others saying a "Fairy & Wizard" party is a great way to incorporate the boys.

My DS5 was invited last year to a girls 5th birthday which was a fairy party, he was the only boy and loved it.  I dressed him up in a peter pan costume with some green fairy wings.

Saying that though I don't think my DS4 would be as into it.
