Anna's very good friend Ella Grace celebrated her 6th birthday on Saturday morning with a Woodland Fairy birthday party. I had the fun of helping the "Fairy Godmother" (Nici) plan and implement the party. The creativity came from Nici - I just helped put the graphics together and set up the morning of the party.
It was such a great event, and never have I heard nine little girls squeal so much. The fairies started the party of with a 'quest' to become a real fairy. In order to earn their wings, they had to complete several tasks - hunt for the ten tiny 10 fairies hidden around the property, create and decorate a fairy house for their little fairy, make a jar of magic pixie dust, and have their faces painted.
The outdoor tea table was set with mismatched sets of fine china, linen tablecloths and napkins, roses, moss, and red toadstools.

|Fairy Anna adored this party.|
|And especially her blue fairy wings and painted face - which was completed by none other than the Fairy Godmother herself.|

And best of all? The girls loved it. Especially the birthday girl herself, who beamed with pride at all of the decorations and activities as we were setting them up - saying over and over 'My Mommy did all this!'
Yes she did, sweet girl. A labor of love for her sweet fairy!
