The Fairy Princess Party

April 11, 2011. It was a study in pink.  Pink tulle, pink roses, and pink satin, combined with fairy wings, glitter, and pom poms. There were pink butterfly cookies, pink marshmallows, and pink popcorn. Strawberry cupcakes with pink icing and a pink toad stool cake. Even the veggie dip was pink! The girls filtered in one by one taking in the magical scene, totally in awe their surroundings.

1st order of business was to fairify them. (Yes, that is a word... in MY world, anyway!) Each girl received a pink tutu, wings, and fairy halo. It was so cute to see the transformation from street clothes to fairy. You could tell they all felt special. And they were.

Next up, was the making of fairy wands. This was a big hit. My daughter still plays with hers, a year later!
A make-up artist was on hand for face painting. Each girl chose the same thing- a pink butterfly. Sweet.
After the face painting, they headed to the table for a royal fairy princess tea. The lil princess drank pink tea or pink lemonade served in real porcelain tea cups. They nibbled on flower & butterfly shaped fruit kabobs and two kinds of tea sandwiches, along with yummy pink confections from the sweet table.

After lunch and sweets were served,  there was a winged horse pinata', song and dance, and games to play. And magic. Lots of it. Pretty, pink, sparkly magic. A beautiful day for a beautiful Fairy Princess.
