This year, we went with a fairy theme. And since baking is beyond my skill set, we ordered all the food from Megan of Sweet 'n Sassy Custom Cakes, who came and set up the dessert table for the party, even brought the table, linens, plates, and decorations for the dessert table. Check out the fairy house cake and the mushroom cupcakes.
It's not a party without handmade party favors, right? I made these dolls from a pattern by Dolls and Daydreams. The most thrilling part of this is that the dolls were made "in the hoop," which means that all the seams and stitches were made using my embroidery machine. These dolls came together so fast and easily. I was thrilled with the result!
I ordered the doll wings from Halo Heaven and attached them to the back with a safety pin. The pattern also had little ballerina slippers for the dolls; I ran out of time so they are barefoot fairies.
Here's a ridiculously cute close-up of the doll. I love them so much. I'm already planning my next dozen.
The kids made fairy houses using wooden birdhouses decorated with moss, feathers, broken seashells, silk flowers, and whatever else I could find at Joann's that seemed earthy and natural.
And then it was time to eat their fairy treats. They drank sparkly juice from champagne glasses that I had left over from a new year's get together.
And one last look at our six year old.
