Desiree's Fairy Birthday

For my daugther's 7th birthday in November we had a Fairy Party for her and 7 of her friends (5 girls, 1 boy and her brother).  Here's a glimpse into the fun 


Elijah 4, Desiree newly 7

I took pictures of Desiree and each friend in their wings and the fairy crowns I knitted for the girls.  The boys both wanted their picture take with wings and fairy crowns too so they had to borrow!  Who knew?!?!

Food: mini everything -- you know, cause it was a fairy party...

mini burgers
mini crackers
mini cookies
mini ice cream cones


No matter how hard I try to plan ahead, I typically end up stressed at the last minute decorating the cake...  This cake did not turn out quite as I envisioned, but Desiree was pleased.

* an 'unwrap the present that's wrapped a dozen or so times' game.  The kids sat in a circle and passed a dice around.  Everytime someone rolled a 1 or a 6 they put on the big gloves and apron and unwrapped part of the present.  In the end it was fancy felts and Tinkerbell and friend pictures for them all to colour.  I had a back up plan for the boys, but surprisingly, it wasn't needed!

* Bingo using Tinkerbell stickers on the Bingo sheets.  This made it fit the theme and as a big bonus, it keeps all those chips from slipping off and ruining the game!  The kids loved it.  Everyone won thanks to some sneaky number calling on my part and everyone received Tinkerbell (or other Disney themed) bookmarks -- the velvet ones you colour in.

This was a "late-over".  Like a sleep-over, but instead the kids stay late and go home pre-bedtime.  We watched Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue -- a super cute movie about helping one another, believing in things you can't see and father/daughter relationships. 

My 7 year old fairy!
