My Baby is 4...

I can't believe it but my baby girl turned 4 at the end of August and being born after two boys we had to have a pink fairy birthday.

We had so much fun and I want to show a few of the crafty things I prepared for the birthday party.


Part of the decoration was a tutu wreath (idea from here). The text says: Maya is 4 and I cut it with the Silhouette and covered the number 4 with washi tapes.




 The chair also got a little dress with fun flowers.




For the activity the girls prepared fairy wings (idea from here) and a fairy wand.

The wings were decorated with stickers. I prepared the wings ahead of time and the girls decorated them during the party and then has a blast wearing them. You can see that my daughter got a visit from a real fairy (our 13 years old neighbor) 



 For the wands handle I had my husband buy and cut some wood. I colored it with Silver paint. For the top of the wand I used styrofoam balls that I glued to the stick.

The girls covered the balls with white glue and then purred glitter in all colors on top of the glue.

It was lot of fun. I am SOOOO happy it was done outside in the yard. I think I still see glitter in the grass 3 weeks after.... :-)

Each girl got bubbles from the fairy to play with during the party. I bought a bunch and covered them with Scotch/3M duct tape. That was super easy and covered the original paper completely.

I then printed my own fairy and writing (Maya is 4) on sticker paper and cut it out using a circle punch.
 

 

When the girls left each got a lolly pop and a ring (not shown in the picture). The lolly pop case was made with the Die-namics Lollipop Treat and the Doodlebug take note paper collection.

 
And of course, no party is completed without a cake. I designed the fairy page on my computer and printed it on rice paper that you can eat (it's a special type of ink of course and you do it in the store).


Lastly, I made another cake for my daughter for her day care party. She specifically requested a rainbow cake.
