It was on a Saturday in June.
Because we all love fairies, the beautiful Cicely Mary Barker's Flower Fairies were the theme.
I tried to stick with the theme as much is possible, with some variations.
I saw a cute fairy ring cake and toadstool cupcakes at Cathy Gaubert's blog.
Also, I loved the idea of girls sitting on toadstools that I saw on flickr.
So, I had to mix Flower Fairies with toadstools.
We got the Flower Fairies Postcard book at Amazon. It is a cute little book with 30 postcards that you can tear off. They are so cute that I had a hard time picking the ones to send to the guest as invitations. I had some left that I used on frames and on plants - Lavender fairy on a lavender plant, Rose fairy on a rose plant and so on.
We live in an apartment, but I was able to use a little bit of space outside.I made almost everything for the party. I love to make things for my sweetie and we had a small budget .
I think this cake was not only a very cute idea but also great for someone like me with no talents on cake decorating.
The fairy is an ornament from San Francisco music box that I already had.
My friend Jodie made the wooden mushrooms.
I made a Fairy Garden using a bowl, a silk plant, Spanish moss, two big mushrooms from World's Market, more of Jodie's mushrooms and another Flower Fairy ornament from San Francisco Music box.
The fairy wand cookies were made by my friend Anniece. I gave one to each girl as they left .
I made a little bag with their name on for each girl . They put the prizes they got after each game in it. They also took home their felt "toadstool".
I hanged some paper tag ornaments (freebie from a card making magazine) on silk flowers and twigs that I put on a pitcher.
I got the Flower Fairies mobile online. It is decorating my girl's room now.
The birthday girl has some limitations because of her condition. We needed fun games with no running or jumping.
We decided to have Packing for Fairy Land, Spin the fairy wand and Fairy freeze. We planned two crafts but had time only for one.
The food was finger food ... fairy food. Strawberries, grapes, melon, veggies and cheese sandwiches in a flower shape.
