A Fairy Party

My little girl turned 3 on April 29th. To celebrate, we threw a fairy party. Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of everything I did (boo!), but here's some of the homemade touches. We had the party in an old firehouse, which, unfortunately was a '60's firehouse and not an old charming one with a fire pole!

I started off with her invitations as the inspiration for everything. Pink, Purple, Green, and Blue are the colors I used. I found several different invites on etsy and took different ideas from each one and my DH put it all together. I love how they turned out!

All the kiddos seemed to have a blast. Each of the girls got a pair of wings to wear for the party.

The next few pictures are of the food. I tried to go along with the fairy I had dirt complete with worms, pixie dust so the fairies could fly,

fairy gems,

a fairy garden, (pigs in a blanket in the background)

crab stuffed mushrooms, fruit tray, fiesta party dip and beer bread. I also had DH's grandmother make mini cheesecakes and I had cupcakes, meatballs, spinach and artichoke dip, and pinwheels. YUM.

I used the fairy from her invite and made it into an svg file and cut it with my cricut on vinyl. I put it on a canvas and painted over it purple, then pulled the vinyl off to be left with the white. I added Tinkerbell's famous saying (sorry, it didn't turn out well here), "All you need is a little faith, trust and pixie dust"

I had two banners that I hung that I didn't get pictures of hanging, but here's one that I made. The first one I made with fabric I had laying around and a white grosgrain ribbon.

The second one, a friend made for me last year for Lexi's 2nd birthday. I had put Happy Birthday on using fabric and heat n bond. in the hot pink fabric.

And, finally, here are the water bottles I did. The centers I also used as the cupcake toppers. For table centerpieces, I had little tubs that I planted yellow and purple flowers and added a fairy in it, too.

Thanks for letting me share!!
