I LOVE creating children’s birthday parties. But what I loved more than anything else was seeing my daughter’s face when she opened the door to her fairy wonderland!
We started the party with four different stations: (1) hair braiding with butterfly and rose accessories, (2) face painting, (3) craft- making butterflies and (4) decorating hair combs with gems. After all the girls were done, they were able to put on fairy wings and dance around. They ate fairy snacks which consisted of mini crossiants, mini chocolate chip muffins, fruit kabobs made to look like magic wands, little cheese cubes with crackers, and pink cupcakes with pearl sprinkles in a flower cup. The girls had fun playing “Pass The Wand”, “Freeze Dance” and “Fairy Says”. When the party was over, they took fairy loot bags home with all their fun prizes, fairy wings and wands. I think it’s pretty safe to say, these little girls had a magical time!
Happy 5th Birthday, Skyler! You are a true blessing and such a fun-loving ball of energy!!! We love you!!!
My daughter wanted to have a PJ party for her 6th birthday! This was a great way to have a “fake sleepover” for little ones not quite ready for staying overnight (or for Mamas who aren’t quite ready for that!)
The girls arrived in their PJs at 5 p.m. to deocrate their own pillow case with fabric markers. For dinner, we served fruit cups, raw veggies and pizza. After dinner, we played some fun games to get the girls moving; pass the pillow (whomever got out was able to pick a prize), bingo (all the words had to do with a sleepover birthday party) and freeze dance (we saw some “moves like Jagger”).
Cupcakes were followed by popcorn and a “Strawberry Shortcake Sweet Dreams” movie. I didn’t want to send the kids home too wound up! Their loot bags consisted of a star wand, hair ties, a friendship bracelet and a star sugar cookie. Each girl also took home a box that had homemade blueberry muffins and juice for breakfast the next morning.
I still can’t believe I have a six year old! Happy birthday to a sweet and wonderful daughter that brightened our world 6 years ago. You are a true miracle. Mommy and Daddy love you!
