Snow Fairy Scenes

They came, they frolicked, they floated and flitted about - 6 little snow fairies. Here are a few images from the party:

This was my first themed party - not sure I'm a convert. What are your thoughts?

It looks delightful! I love what you did with the cake! Oh how we miss you all....can't believe she is 6!

Tara said...

So great, Katy! Now I'm really kicking myself for not getting her box of goodies in the mail! Soon, I promise!

Amy said...

How lovely! I'm sure any little girl would have had a wonderful time at that party!

What an adorable theme and it looks like you did a wonderful job. I am so impressed with the table and wings. Too cute. I keep thinking..will I ever think of such clever things with Maddy? I may need your help!

It looks so sweet! My daughter will turn 6 next year in early December and has said she wants a Christmas themed party - maybe she'd go for snow fairy instead? Did you make the wings and headbands? It is all very beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

How wonderful that each girl got a set of wings. Lovely Party!

just lovely! what did the 6 year old think about the theme? i, too, often think it's a bit much, but when i did an over-the-top Fancy Nancy affair last year, my daughter loved it.

On the "theme party" front, I think kids are either into them or not and it can actually be easier on the parent if they are. Cut and dried plan, y'know? Piper wants a 1/2 unicorn, 1/2 bride, 1/2 pony, 1/2 princess, 1/2 fairy and 1/2 kitten birthday party.

I'd really like the simple and ever-lovely snow fairy one...

Lisa said...

I think it looks adorable. But of course I LOVE themed birthday parties! Working on Nora's plan right now!!

Hi all, thanks for your comments! Each girl got a pair of wings. I found them on ebay at a very reasonable price. I made the headbands from an artificial flower and a stretchy headband. I wanted to do something more snowflake-y but couldn't come up with something - and actually find the supplies here. We made a snowflake cookie for each girl as the "goodie bag." The girls also made magic wands using a straw and a long piece of silver ribbon. This was Eva's idea - they just taped the ribbon onto the straw and waved it around. Brilliant. The girls showed up in fairy dresses.

As for the question of a theme . . . I think it is more important and fun for the adult planning the party. No child is going to geek out on the cool themed invitations, giveaways, games and decorations like a mommy would. Yes, they may want to have a "pony" party . . . but would they really care if *everything* was pony related? I've decided that the only proper recipient of a theme party would be another mother. So, if any of you want a fairy party, I'd be happy to do it for you. Another thing about themes - I just got too obsessed with it. Instead of focusing on fun or letting Eva have more say in her party I fixated on the theme. But perhaps that is just my neurosis.

Katy - I can see your point on the theme, not that you explain it.

Road Tripper - I had to lol at all the 1/2's in your party. Good luck with her math homework! heehee
All kidding aside -I love it when kids get excited for something, and I really love a theme. We just had a Harry Potter party here last week, and we will be having a tea party in another couple weeks.
