Fairy birthday party....done

We had Ella's fourth birthday party yesterday. Invitations went out, then I didn't do much at all until about 3pm the day before...oops. Never mind, I'm a pro at the last minute rush.

Party bags...I got the bag idea from Martha Stewart (I only had white bags so painted another bag green for each one), then made some origami boxes for the lollies, some hair ties and some notebooks, added some bubbles and a crayon and a little thank you note and they were done.

Ella wore her fairy wings that I made. I did have to convince her to put on the rest of the outfit, she came out of her bedroom with just the wings on, but once I told her that we didn't actually invite any nudey rudey fairys she put her skirt and top on.

We played stick the horn on the unicorn.

And all the fairies jumped on the trampoline which, as Shane put it, looked a lot like the butterfly enclosure at Coffs Harbour what with all the fairies in their wings and pink tule...very cute.

There was lots of fairy food.

And what would a fairy party be without lots of pink.

All I can say is I'm glad its over, phew!

Well done! Looks lovely and I bet the girls all had a great time! I have boys so Pirates and lots of noise are the go....actually I have managed to convince the boys that a night at a hotel in Cairns and swimming in the hotel pool makes a good birthday treat (costs about the same) and that way I get a bit of a break too :-)
