We celebrated my daughter Ava's 3rd Birthday with a Fancy theme, much like Fancy Nancy would celebrate! Everything was Fancy! This was an easy theme to choose because Ava loves to dress up and pretend. I found the idea in one of my favorite magazines, Celebrate. The guest were told to put on their Fancy attire and join us for a Fancy Soirre. The girls enjoyed teacup cupcakes, makeup cookies, macaroons and of course parfaits! The played catch the butterflies and pin the tail on the princess. The girls left the party with a tutu and pail of plenty of Fancy accessories. All the girls were just darling.
They were all Fancy!!!
Teacup cupcakes, parfaits, makeup cookies, and French macaroons. The centerpiece dessert was the pink ruffle cake topped with a toy tiara.

Ava loving all the Fancy things her friends brought her and thanking them over and over.
When one of my dear friends walked through the door with her daughter and she too was dressed Fancy! She wore a tutu on her head.
