My daughter is turning 5 next weekend, and it’s her first girls-only birthday party. We decided to make it really girly and have it here at the house. I know the thing these days is to have birthday parties somewhere else, with built-in entertainment. I remember having birthday parties at home when I was young, and I think it’s so cozy. Nothing against party places of course, as we’ve utilized those things, from Build A Bear to Pump It Up.

all the kids outside. It’s a bit more challenging in a Michigan January!

Anyway, it started as a tea-party and has morphed into a fairy theme. Being me, not one to keep things easy for myself, I decided that I could make the tutus and wings myself. I also added fairy crowns to the to-do list.
Detail on tutu.
Here are pics of the tutu and crown I made for my E. I will post pics of the wings when I finish them.
Spread-out tutu of tulle, ribbon, velvet leaves, & faux floral beauties.
Of course E gets the fanciest, so the ones for the other little fairies will not be quite so labor intensive. Besides, now I sort of know what I am doing!

I made the invites on Photoshop, which I wrapped around pretty faux flowers and secured with a lenth of hot-pink tulle.
OK, gotta go, I have a lot of wings to make in the next week! Enjoy the photos.
