Fairy Princess Birthday Party

It's time to breathe again, thank goodness!! Although I was super organised this year, the chaos of the last minute sprint still got my pulse racing. Such fun! The good news is that it was MORE than well worth it, as the Birthday girl was overjoyed with the pinkness and prettiness of it all. She gave loads of cuddles to say 'thank you' and she even made a wish when she blew out here candles for a hug from Mummy, heart melting moments. She was thrilled to bits and so excited by the room decor and her little dress and she even put it on as soon as she woke in the morning, I was impressed. It always warms my heart when they get so much pleasure from their parties and I hand on heart absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE doing them. So here are some pics, brace yourself, it's PINK PINK PINK!





 



















 





 









 



There was something for everyone and the kids had a ball. My fave bit was the fairy hunt in the garden where they had to find the princess fairy amongst the 24 wooden peg fairies I made, you can see more here. The weather was less kind and the trestle table was moved from out-in-and-out again and back-in-again where we set a little party table for them. The weather was so random, even with a couple of hale storms thrown in just for good measure (that's the pics with lots of white on it, it haled lots of pixie dust, heehee). Fortunately kids are never to phased by these weird and wonderful things and they just got stuck in. I think it helped that we had a serious supply of sugar around to distract, that's what parties are about right? The cake was suppose to be a pink flower with a slightly blocky and plump fairy on it as my fairy making went a bit skew-whiff, but at least it was something to giggle about. I think I have grown kinda fond of her over the last week as she has been sitting staring at me at regular intervals from inside our fridge and I think I might just miss her (sniff-sniff). The little party bags caused great excitement and the girls were delighted with their Fairy Princess Tiara's I made, and the super cute Tulle Fairy Wands. Boys being boys were chuffed to dress up in their Peter Pan hats. All in all it was GREAT fun!!

Historically we have always done parties in the afternoon, but this time we did it from 11-1pm and it was so lovely to have the rest of the arvo to open pressies and enjoy some quality time together as a family, so I reckon we'll do the morning thing again. We all enjoyed some happy moments on the very pretty fairy princess bouncy castle before giving Es her first pedal bike. Then we went to our local village school to set the wheels in motion (ta-da). As you can see she LOVED LOVED LOVED it. Amazingly, she actually managed a couple of moments without my doh (darling other half)'s help, a very clever birthday girl indeed. With both ours we have done the balance bike thing from an early age and it was amazing when Josh got his first pedal bike last year as he was just got on and cycled after a couple of attempts, very impressive. Es might be a little young, but time will tell.




 

 
 
On a final note, it did make me giggle when she ran upstairs after her birthday lunch and came down for the cake affair dressed in, yes you guessed right, her PJ's in which she stayed for the rest of the day, heehee. True to form even on her party day, got to love it!!!

What have you been up to this weekend?
