Party Recap

Without even allowing the glitter to settle from her 4th birthday party, my little lady insisted on a Fairy Party for the big 5… And boy what a fairy party we had! She insisted “fairies and butterflies mommy-but not Tinkerbell!”. A few days later it was “fairies, butterflies, and ballet mommy!”… Who knew that a then 4 year old could be soooo opinionated! She took on the big girl title and ran with it… Though, I must say she knows her stuff! From that point on, we were in party mode! Everything I came across in the stores seemed very commercial so in true fashion, we personalized every detail to fit her vision. Mommy made about 90% of the décor including the tutu for the table, complete with over 300 yds of tulle! I couldn’t have done it without my little fairy ballerina of course… Ruffles, tulle, tutu’s, pixie dust, wings, and glitter oh my!!! This was truly a labor of love and I had a ball doing it! My favorite birthday party to date for sure…
