After months of thinking, dreaming about and planning, today was my eldest daughter Ella's 4th birthday party.
Enchanted Fairy Woodland was the theme, chosen by Ella (and maybe suggested by Mummy? :) ).
The theme started with the invitations......and continued with setting the scene...
With hanging tissue paper pom poms, butterflies and stars, sweeping drapes from the ceiling and a great wall 'scene setter' we certainly did set the woodland fairy scene!
There was plenty of yummy party food all made to match the theme from the classic fairy bread cut into love hearts, to ladybug cupcakes and mini teacups.
I made Ella's costume, one I've dreamed of making ever since I had her I think LOL! She picked the colours which lead to the theme of everything else. Of course my little April had to have her own fairy outfit too and I even dressed up too!
We had great fun playing games, collecting coins the tooth fairy dropped outside, musical toadstools, pass the parcel, musical statues, egg and spoon race and then we finished off by all making special fairy wishes with magical fairy dust and a special fairy rhyme.
Then after singing happy birthday and cake it came to an end with all the fairies and elves taking their tooth fairy coin collections and bag full of lollies and goodies (including their own little container of fairy dust) with them.
