Fairy Makeover Party

Monday, October 5, 2009
As you know Emma turned 6 on Saturday and we celebrated in full Fairy STYLE. We had a Fairy Makeover Party. What is a Fairy Makeover Party you ask????
Well it all starts with an invitation inviting 6 friends (all girls of course). The invitation read:

In the Enchanted Kingdom of Parkville

there lives a Fairy named

that is turning 6 years old.

Emma would like to invite you to her Fairy Makeover Party.

Still not sure??? Well here it is in pictures:

This was out front of the house. A sign at the beginning of the walkway and an archway leading to the door. The flowers are made out of tissue paper.

Inside in the living room were the Fairy makeover "stations". The first was the "Fairy nail painting and tattoos", next was the "Fairy face painting", then "Fairy Wands & Fairy Wings".
I painted the girls nails and Sean painted their faces (he did an excellent job) and my friend, Julie, assisted with the wands. After all was complete each girl got their FAIRY WINGS.

Then I decorated the sun room in pink and green.

The girls played "Fairy Freeze"...just like musical chairs. The girls stood on a paper leaf (made by my wonderful husband) then danced and moved while the music was playing. When the music stopped the girls had to find leaf (obviously less leaves than girls). The one without a leaf had to sit. Then we played "Stick the star on Tinkerbell" and colored Fairy coloring pages.

I think all had fun including the Birthday Fairy, herself....Ms. Emma and her sister.

Sean decided he wanted to make Emma's birthday cake for the Family Party (followed the Fairy Party). He wanted to use fondant but I explained how expensive it is to buy it. So he decided to MAKE it himself. He made a batch several days before the party and did a test cake....a smaller version of the final cake. It seemed as though the making and preparing of the fondant was quite tedious, including the coloring of the fondant (by the way he went to the gym the next morning to work out with pink hands!!!) I had flour/corn starch all over my dinning room table and FLOOR. It was MESSY. Then the night before the party he made the icing for the actual BIRTHDAY cake. He colored some of the icing so he could make flowers. This time his hands went from purple to pink. 1 1/2 hours before the party he was ready to put the fondant on the cake. He rolled it out just like he did for the test cake however the icing kept sticking to the table and the rolling pin. After several outburst of slight disappointment and anger he cleaned up, put the icing back in the frig so he could face paint 7 darling faces. After the face painting was complete he went back to tackle the icing. He had decided that he couldn't let the icing BEAT him. After several more attempts and more mess he yelled, "I'm the MAN!!" Yes there were several parents and 7 girls under 10 in the other room. HE WON!!!! Here is the process and result:

This picture shows all the pretty flowers ready to go on the cake. The cake has a layer of regular icing...this is not the fondant.

After a week of preparing everything went off without a hitch. I love planning fun parties for my girls. I'm always looking for fun, creative and not so expensive ideas. Ready to plan the next one....May 2010.
