A Fairy Birthday Party!

Our little 3 year old had a magical day celebrating with friends at the weekend! For months she had been talking of nothing else but fairies and PINK, so a pink fairy extravaganza it was.
“Welcome to the enchanted garden!” There was pink tulle hanging between all the trees and bushes.

The first activity was to make a fairy wand and decorate it with sequins and glitter. 
There were bubbles galore for dancing and flying in!
With plenty of pearlised acrylic paints and sparkly stickers! (Separate post to follow.)

This was the most fun activity of the day, requiring plenty of concentration!
Finished fairy houses hanging in the trees to dry.
The flowers and fairies sensory tub for the little ones to explore. They loved this!
A fairy pass-the-parcel!
Little Sis enjoyed herself almost as much as her big sister!
Here is Cakie clutching her prized fairy dust bottle.
There was a pink themed fairy feast with as much food and drink as possible being PINK!
With a fairy pink sweet shop, with foam shrimps, pink mushrooms, strawberry laces, marshmallows and heart shaped lollipops all in glass jam jars. Yum!
And a fairy garden cake covered in flowers and a little, plump, fairy on the top, with wings made from laminated glitter. Cakes are not my speciality but she was happy :-)
 And to end the day there were little pink party bags that Cakie decorated with stickers for her guests. They were filled with wooden fairy plaques to be decorated (for the older ones) and pink sparkly playdough for the little ones, as well as some sweet treats and fairy wand bubbles!
 It was a wonderful day, made all the more special by the people who came. Cakie can’t stop talking about it and is apparently planning the next one already, this time a “hearts party”! I hope she has some real memories of this day in the future. More posts on some of the activities to follow!
With huge thanks to our good friends Jon and Katy, again, for taking such wonderful photos and allowing me to use them here!

    Wow! That looks like an amazing party! I love all the activities you set up. You thought of everything! Your daughters are very lucky.

    When you said it was going to be Cakie’s birthday soon I was really excited to see what you would be doing and you never fail to come up with some amazing ideas – what beautiful and magical ideas, thank you so much for sharing.

    This has to be the best little girl’s birthday party I have ever seen! She looks soooo happy! My favorite photos have to be the dancing in bubbles one and the one where she’s clutching her bottle of fairy dust. Brilliant party! I’m sharing this with my girlfriend who have daughters. :)

    Wow, that looks a beautiful party. As a mum to two boys, I don’t have the chance to throw pink sparkly parties – I want one! :-)
    Parties here are usually football themed with boys charging everywhere, pink glittery ones would make a good change, don’t think they’d be impressed though! :-)
    (P.S found your blog through Twitter!

    WOW! What a fabulous party. We also made a fairy house recently (my eldest similarly obsessed with pink) but ours was made from a shoebox, painted and confetti-glitter-glued, and sparkle-stickered.

    I am so going to make a pink sensory box. Amazing.

    Ps you are a much nicer Mummy than me. I rejected my daughter’s request for a Cinderella party, as I object politically to the ubiquity of pink and to Disney princesses specifically. So I threw her a Gruffalo party. She loved it in the end!
    PPS Can we just confirm that you did all this whilst pregnant? You are truly superwoman, and we mere readers are not worthy.

    Heya! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I needed to
    ask. Does operating a well-established blog such as yours require
    a lot of work? I’m completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share
    my personal experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for
    brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be
    actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking
    forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
