It was my daughter’s 5th birthday party this last weekend, and it was a real success. She just invited little girls (believe me, this made it a lot easier for me). We had a fairy princess party, each little girl that came in was greeted by our fairy and was given her own crown. I planned to do crafts with them and afterwards some games, but they enjoyed the crafts so much that they spent most of the time doing that, which of course was fine with me.
We even did some edible crafts – cookie decorating, which was a huge hit with the girls. Here is a picture of her little sister’s cookies (she’s 3).
The girls also made themselves magic wands and necklaces â€“ though not the edible kind.
The birthday cake was a castle, I made the cake â€“ ordinary chocolate cake, and her aunt decorated it. Isn’t it just the sweetest cake?
Much fun was had by all, and even though it was a lot of work, I have to say that I really enjoyed myself! Only 9 more months until my next birthday partyâ€¦.
