Anna's Woodland Fairy Party was an intimate gathering that allowed for great crafting and dining with her best friends. I may never go back to a big bash again. Mark my words.
I'm a sucker for details. With a small group, my obsessive tendencies become more manageable. Inside, the dining table was a very simple and sparse setting with bamboo plates and utensil. The girls were old enough to enjoy sparkling pink lemonade from real glasses with butterfly straws. And, at the start if the party, their place settings had their fairy houses waiting to be made into homes.
Outside was the 'enchanted forest'. We live in a Southern California suburban beach town. Our yard is very small. With a few extra tress we spruced the place up to feel more green. I set up an area for food and drink (appetizers) near the girls' crafting area. The young ones enjoyed berry punch while the mamas had a spiked version that was quite refreshing. My favorite part of the outdoor set up was Parker's sound machine playing a whistling bird in the background. It felt like a forest--at least to me.
More posts to come on the menu and most importantly the activities. Stay tuned.
