Christmas Fairies...the big 5th birthday....and a Giveaway!
So having 3 dotters has really made me into a girly girl. As a child I don't particularly remember being so girly and loving the color pink. When that first dotter was born, pink instantly became my favorite color (it still is.) I especially love the idea of fairies. There has always been something magical about them. When my oldest dotter turned 5 I decided to have a big fairy party for her. We had 15 little fairy guests. I made them skirts and wings, we had a fairy treasure hunt, face painting and really fun games. The party was a huge success. So when dotter 2 turned 5 I knew I had to have a fairy party for her. Again, it was a huge success. This time I actually put a fairy tent in the backyard decorated with flowers. So dotter 3 is my last, and she turns 5 this Christmas day. We usually have her party a few weeks prior to Christmas. This party was more of a challenge since the other dotters have warm birthdays...meaning the party can be outside.
Since this was my last fairy party I wanted everything perfect. I decorated my kitchen to look like a magical fairyland place. We had fun fairy food, the outfits were cute, the games fun and the all seemed to have a good time. Most of all my little fairy Bella, truly felt like a special birthday girl.
Today as I'm writing this post, I am so tired. December is busy month without adding a big birthday party on top of it. I'm a little sad too. No more dotters, no more fairy parties. 5 seems to be a magical age, when you are 5 fairies do exist and Santa Claus will be coming down your chimney soon.
Happy Birthday my sweet Bella!
So, I want to share some fairy magic with you as well. If you leave a comment I will share some fairy love with you. I will pick 3 people and send them wings (beautiful and handmade), a skirt, a cute crown (that I made) and some sweet fairy treats. I will take comments until the end of the month. I will choose 3 people by noon on December 30 and mail the items straight to your house.
I am going to post some pictures, if you want specifics on anything I did, I'm happy to share info/ideas.
