We recently celebrated our youngest daughter's 5th birthday with a Tinkerbell party.
She is Tinkerbell crazy!
All I wanted for this party was a garden full of trees and flowers.. but sadly living in a rental in Queensland.. all we have is a patchy lawn with NO trees and last year we found out its really too hot in late November to host a party outside (last year it was 36C on her birthday).
So we had to bring the garden inside.
The kids and I painted this massive scene setter. And it was so cheap to make!!
We also made some badly made Martha Stewart Tissue Pom poms... some ruffled streamers and leaf garland (never again I tell you!).. some toadstool cushions...
The food, Im proud to say, was all preservative and additive free (except for the colouring in the cake, sadly the natural food colouring just wouldnt give any colour). The kids enjoyed fruit kebab wands, hummus with chopped veges, plain cupcakes with plain icing, egg and tomato toadstools, fairy bread with natural coloured sprinkles... at the end of the party nearly every scrap of food was gone ...and no sweets in the party bags.
My little Miss and her friends boogied like crazy, what a delightful bunch of kindy kids.
They watched the Tinkerbell and the great fairy rescue movie, complete with popcorn necklaces made by Miss 9 and Daddy.. which were a hit! they played games....
And of course we wrapped it up with cake and pressies
And fairy party bags to go...
