Lily hosted a Fairy Princess Tea Party for 4 of her friends last Saturday. We have been planning this for a month! I have to admit that at times, I was probably more excited than she was because I loved planning all of this girly stuff. :0)
The day before and the day of, though Lily was beyond excited as we got everything ready and she (impatiently) waited for her friends to arrive.
She picked out 5 different colored tutus, wings, tiaras, and wands. They were all matching except her wings were rainbow colored (because when she saw it, I really couldn't say no to her...) to go along with the rest of her light pink accessories, and the yellow set had a pink tiara because I could not find a yellow one. But it al worked out! :0)
All of the girls got treat bags filled with all sorts of girly stuff; nail polish, lip gloss, rings, bracelets, etc.
The night before, Lily helped me set the table. A special thank you goes out to my sister Amy for letting me borrow tea pots, tea trays, and letting me completely redo your tea cup. :0)
On Saturday, we got the craft stuff ready; beads and colored elastic for necklaces, bracelets, and rings!
We also had flower wands that the girls could decorate with jewels.
We also had a game; Pin the Wings on the Fairy!
Lily helped me make most of the food too. (She loves to bake!)
We had Butterfly Sandwiches (peanut butter & honey):
Mini Chocolate Mousse:
Instead of tea, I thought 7 & 8 year olds would prefer lemonade. We had both regular and pink:
and Flower Mints:
When everything was ready, Lily got her fairy princess outfit on:
As her friends started arriving, they all got their outfits on. There was a lot of giggling, and talking!! Seriously, I didn't think it was going to be so loud!! LOL!
After everyone was dressed, I took individual pictures of them with Lily and them a group photo.
This is Lily & Isabella:
Olivia & Lily:
Allison & Lily:
Averie & Lily:
We started off with the food!
(Thanks to my friend Wendy (Averie's mom) for staying and helping!) :0)
When the girls had their fill of treats and lemonade, we made the wands:
Then it was time for Pin the Wings on the Fairy!
They then decided that they were in need of refreshments. (Their words, not mine. LOL)
Soon they were ready to make their jewelry.
They made all kinds of fun and pretty things!
When they got tired of that, they went back to munch on more treats, then they had an impromptu dance party while watching a movie until they got picked up. :0)
Lily had SO much fun. She wants to have another one next week.......
I don't think that happening quite so soon though......
I'll post recipes for the treats later.
