Grace turned 6 this past weekend! She is growing up right before our very eyes. We had a small party by celebrating with a few of her close neighborhood friends. The party theme this year was “Butterfly Fairies”. The theme was mostly due to her not being able to decide between a “Butterfly Party” and a “Fairy Party”. Decisions like that can be very difficult. You make the wrong choice and you have to wait a whole entire year for your next party. So, “Butterfly Fairies” it was. I found the huge glittery butterflies while walking through a ROSS store a few months back. They were a steal at $5 and $7, so I bought every single one they had. I considered that a good investment with two little girls in the house. I am sure you will see them used again at one of the girls parties in the future. Possibly even on a Halloween costume.
A big THANKS to my mom for decorating the cake! Grace was very involved in the party planning process this year. Quite the opinion for a 6 year old. She loved her little sister’s birthday cake and wanted something similar.
The main party food: sugar. Those are Rice Krispy treats made from Fruity Pebbles. To quote a party guest, “You think a Rice Krispy treat can’t get any better…and then it does!”
There was also a champagne “mommy” drink 🙂
The first task of the party was for the guests to make fairy skirts. There was a large bin piled high with strips of tulle. The girls were each fitted with a small elastic waistband and then all they had to do was tie the tulle onto their skirt. Instant Fairy!I mean…”Butterfly Fairy”.

Then, it was time for CAKE!
Lots of girl time to play, color and giggle. We had a great party and are blessed with such good friends for our daughter! Thank you to all the friends and family that attended 🙂 You made her day very special.
