A few weeks ago, I clued you all in on the theme of Lou’s third birthday party.
Courtesy of my friend and neighbor, Amber of Little Moon Photography, we have some amazing pictures to share…
My friend Kristy Patterson of Sweet Nothings worked meticulously on the candy table. Those of you who know me, know how obsessive I am over the details. Kristy is just as detail-oriented and was open to all of my crazy ideas. She was an absolute pleasure to work with.
I just love how everything turned out!
I created the tags in MS Word, and all of the glitter ribbon is from Michaels. The backboard fabric is from Heather Bailey.
Once again, Kristy Stone of Tastefully Treated hit a home run with the cake… Kristy is someone who understands and tolerates my OCD. After I decided I wanted a log slice for a cake stand, she went to several different mill yards in the area to find just the right one. She’s a genius!
Many of you had questions on the flowers… I actually special ordered them from Wegmans. I looked a little weathered (you’ll see below) as I was up until 3 am doing the arrangements. So worth it!
The fairies in jars were made from Christmas ornaments, Ikea Rajtan jars, fishing wire and wooden toadstools. The rainbow circles were cut from glitter paper.
The tablecloths were made in this green linen, and sewn by Windows by Melissa . One thing to note.. the linen wasn’t easy to iron. Please excuse my mismatched valance (next on the list to be replaced…)
The large toadstools are from Pier 1.
The Ninja-like fairies on the mantle are from Target. On Friday night as I was arranging them, I called Mike over to take a look (mature, I know) because of the not-so-lady-like positions that they were in. I tried my best to give them some decorum.
We had a mean game of Pixie Tag. I bought the “Pixie Dust” here.
As you can see, someone finally got her Imperial Trellis shades hung in the kitchen… I love them! The wreaths, wood chips and moss rocks are from Save On Crafts.
The goody bags are from Michael’s. I created the iron-ons in Word.
The Peter Pan hats are from Good’s Place, the fairy wings, wands, swords and tutus are from Designed2BSweet.
The moon bounce was a surprise from her Daddy. He was so proud that he found a TINKER BELL moon bounce. It was priceless, when she saw it in the backyard, she gasped and grabbed his hand. I think I may have seen a little tear well up in his eye.
Everyone had a ball, including Bailey.
The kids loved playing Fairy Freeze Dance.
Lou kept thanking us saying “this is the best birthday party ever.”
A week later, our house still sparkles with Pixie dust, I think a little will always remain, but it will always remind of us the magical party that we had for our sweet little Anna Lou.
