Fairy Party


For some reason I wrote and published this post on Sunday, and it appears on my blog, but not through Reader, no idea why???
So, given that it was quite the sparse post, as I was so tired, thought I would embroider it with some more words


.



Fairy party for my four year old today. (Sunday)
So exhausted............ have very few words, but here are some pics from the day


Rainbow cake in the making. This was so much fun to make. I googled rainbow cake how to, and found this. Basically you just use lots of bowls, put food coloring in each, and then just pour layer upon layer upon layer. It's really fun, and messy. Daughter#2 loved *helping make it!


Fairy bunting for lots of fairy princesses.
I just crocheted little circles and flowers, and attached laminated fairy pictures I had printed out to decorate the front yard, which was renamed fairlyland.



Unfortunately in the excitement f the day I took very few pictures- these looked great, but are difficult to see.


Fairy wonderland. I also put lots of rugs and beanbags on the ground, lots of crocheted bright cushions, obviously lots of fairies, and mosquito netting to create a magical look to fairyland.



Beautiful embroidered tablecloth. I scored this for five dollars at a charity shop. Woo!
It is exquisite, however unfortunately was a bit of a soggy messy mess by the end of the party!





And more of the fairy cake




Now it's just time for the cleaning up..... four year old fairy princesses make lots of mess!!!


And then start wrapping the presents for tomorrow!!


Edit: The birthday itself was a huge success, she had a lovely day. I love birthdays, and I love her! 
Obviously also love her brother and sister, and father as well!

  2. I would be in my element making for a fairy party. It would be so much fun for me. Maybe that should be my next birthday party...ah but since my tea party was so pants maybe stretching to a fairy party would be a stretch too far for my boys (+ husband)

    Love the swirls on the cake dress. V effective.

  3. As the Mother of two boys, I love your Fairy Party. I can remember my brother and I going to a wishing well...he wished the poor in Africa would have enough to eat...I wished to be a fairy princess in a Fairy Castle!

  11. Ah this is cute and I love the fairy rainbow cake. Did all those E numbers drive the girls nuts???!!!! You are one brave woman.
    Fairy party sounds cute.
    I have a dear little girl but she is in love with boys things. We did some gorgeous parties when she was little, princessy and magical and sparkly but now it's Harry Potter this, Harry Potter that!!!
    I have a month to try to convince her to go pink and sweet again!!!
