In your debut, make your Fairy dreams come true!

It’s a Fairy-tale!

Your last day to childhood and first day to womanhood should be as magical as fairies. So, why not have a fairy-theme for your debut? Remember that fairies are creatures of nature so let this be your guiding element when planning your fairy theme party.


Welcome to Fairyland

You can send out an invitation shaped as wings. With wire, mesh cloth or gauzy fabric and a few glitters, you can create a small fairy wing to set the tone of your party. You can also send a vial of glitters together with your invitation stating that they have been some fairy dust to bring them to Fairyland.
You can also use thick paper and burn the sides to make it look like it is an old parchment or has been made from the bark of a tree. Use a calligraphy pen or Gothic script. Roll the paper and tie it with ribbon. Sprinkle some glitter on the paper before you roll it so when they open your invitation a few “fairy dusts” will escape.

The Fairyland

If you plan to have your party outdoors, pick a venue that has huge trees or full of trees and shrubs. This will add to the ambience of your party. Place some Japanese lanterns on the trees or string some Christmas lights on the trees to symbolize fireflies floating above the venue. For an indoor location, you can also use Christmas lights as decorations. Make sure you string as many as you can to provide an elegant, yet cozy, ambience.

For both an indoor or outdoor venue, line the walkway leading to the entrance with tall lit torches to add to the magical atmosphere you are trying to create. As an added element, tie some small bells or wind chimes on the trees.

As a centerpiece for each table, no need to spend too much on flowers. You can use branches with interesting shapes. Spray them with adhesive glue and put some glitters on it for some sparkle. Place some green moss at the bottom to mimic a tree with grass at the bottom. You can also put some scented tea light candles below your centerpiece.

For an ethereal look, put some butterflies and birds on white cages – preferably love birds. You can also drape some gauzy fabric across the ceiling of your venue to add mystery. It would be great if you can find a harp or other string instruments to be part of your decorations.


You can dress up as the Fairy Princess or Queen and have your escort wear a Fairy King costume. Place high-back chairs at the front of the venue as your designated thrones. Do not forget your wreaths! Use small white flowers like aster or baby’s breath for the wreath.

Your guests can wear fairy wings to the party. Pastel colors are great color themes for a fairy-theme party. Pink, yellow, green and blue are some cool colors that guests can wear.

  1. Hi Princess,

    My impression of fairies are that they always look so flawlessly and naturally beautiful. That is why I would suggest draped gowns or something flowy for the dress, something that moves with the wind, something made from chiffon and other flowy materials. Something like this click here and this click here. For hairstyle, I suggest you either wear your hair down with some natural curls like this click here and then wear some sort of head dress made of fresh flowers click here. You can also wear your hair in a loose bun like this click here with flower ornaments. Hope this helps.

  6. Thanks Jona!

    I’m sure you’ll be able to decide which one is best for you. Just remember, when deciding a theme for your party go for the one that fits your personality and one that you will truly enjoy. Happy planning!

  7. Hi Glecy,

    Your daughter’s dress, decoration, favors and invitations will all fall into place once you have chosen a theme. A budget does not have to limit your options when it comes to choosing one. There are several ways you can cut-back on your expense as long as you let your imagination run wild.

    July is a rainy month so you might consider having you venue indoors. You can check out our lits of venues to help you get started. If she is set on having it outdoors, you may want to choose a venue with both indoor and outdoor areas. So, in case it rains your guests has somewhere to take cover. 😉

    Now, if you have a budget in mind and would like to give a fabulous debut for your only daughter here are some several suggestions:
    1) Instead of going for a specific theme (like Alice in Wonderland, Casino Night, etc), make her favorite color the main theme of the party. Have you heard of a White Party? It’s basically the same, but in her case it can be a Green or Violet Party or a combination of both. You can coin it in a different manner, however, so it won’t be too “plain”. In her invitation, you can put “Let’s Get Violet!” or “Green is In”. Then, surround your party planning ideas around the color she has chosen.
    Green is in!
    2) She can also choose to have a specific theme. We have several great ideas and themes in our website that does not need a huge budget to pull-off. Let her choose one that she really likes and go from their. One great tip is to not buy all the things you need for the party, but try to make as many things by yourself as possible. Ask friends and family! I’m sure they’ll be glad to help. This way, you can use the budget for some other things (like venue, food, etc)

    Hope this helps!

  8. Hi Buja,

    Great choice for your theme! 🙂

    For your 18 roses, I think yellow roses would look great and will go well with your Fairy theme. You may also use white roses since both have that ethereal and fantasy-like appeal to them.

    As for your favors, the fairy crown sounds cute. 🙂 For the guys, you can give them small cakes wrapped in lace and ribbon. You can actually give these as favors for everyone! Sprinkle some edible glitter on top like fairy dust. 😉 You can use cookies, cupcakes or cakes for this kind of favor. Favors

    You can also check out some of our suggestions for party favors.

    There are so many Disney fairytale movies that you can choose from! I suggest you look for songs within your favorite one. Or you can check out are many list of Debut Songs.

    For your gown, you can pattern it on one of the gowns in a Disney movie, but, of course, in a more mature design. You can choose to have full formal gown:
    Full gowngownFull gown
    Your fairy-like gown should be flowy or has movement. It is also a great idea to choose a vibrant color for this gown so you’ll stand out from the rest of the crowd! It can be quite simple as the gown belowFairy gown

    or it can be quite colorful.Fairy gown

    It is also a great to choose a gown that is more “fairy-like”
    fairy-like gownFairy-like gown

    Now, when it comes to your invitation it is important that your theme is stamped all over it, so to speak, so your guests will immediately know what you debut party is all about. A simple invitation is to roll-up your invitation and place it inside a glass jar. Fill the jar with colorful glitters to resemble fairy dust and tie some different ribbons on it.

    Another great idea is to use small bells as your invitation. Tie some ribbon and the invite to the bell. You can write “Ring this bell and come to my Fairyland”.

    Hope these suggestions help!

    Hope these helps

  9. heyy there, Debut Ideas! :>

    i’ll be having my debut this june and i am still confused to what theme will i use? i love pink and angels, and as what i’ve read from the comment above, the idea of Angel Blush is really nice! my mom even liked it. but i’ve got no idea how to decorate the whole place?

    and my gown is silky flowy pink and my mom wants me to stand out in the crowd. so what will my visitors wear?

    and lastly, i’ve got this idea for my invitations, just a picture with the words of invite. but got no idea of what type of photoshoot will i do with this type of theme. THANK YOU SO MUCH! :>

  10. Hi Poi,

    Sorry for not replying soon. Angel Blush is a cute theme. Pink is really a lovely color for debutantes. Pretty in Pink. Hanging drapes of white and baby pink will give your venue a touch of heaven that you need. Also different shades of pink flowers on the stage or a flower arc on your entrance will also be a nice addition. Your visitors may wear white so that it will be like a white party so that you will be the only one who is wearing pink. Since your theme is about angels, how about dressing as an angel and posing with a harp like here.. click for picture or maybe just a little harp will do. Hope this helps.

  11. Hi! ano kayang pwedeng replacement ng 18 roses, candles and treasures for a princess themed debut? and okay lang ba yung combination ng red, white and aqua blue? thanls!

  12. Hi Almira,

    We have an article for 18 names options here. 18 Ideas and we have there specifically for a princess theme. As for the color, white and aqua blue reminds me of the beach, ocean, summer, something tropical, while red is more moulin rouge, masquerade, etc., so I’m not sure if it can be combined. Hope this helps.
