{Party Time} Fairy Time

This beautiful fairy party was held at our about to be new venue! The venue is not quite ready for prime time but is slowly coming together - there are still a few details that need taking care of. Stay tuned for more details. 

This was a delightful party for a 6 year old. There were a total of 10 children which allows for some activities that are too difficult to manage with a larger crowd. 

The details of this party were very sweet. The table setting included lovely little flower headbands for the children to wear thoughout the party. We also used our fabulous mason jar's with lids to add a little shabby chic fell. Because of the smaller number of children we served the dainty fairy food on the table. 

The highlight of the party was decorating gingerbread fairy houses. This is a great activity to keep the children busy! They love it and it is fun to watch each different child's approach to it. Some of theme just smear it in icing and lay everything on thick while others take their sweet time and pay attention to to the details. 

There was also a large fairy house for the children to paint. This is one of our popular activities that keep the children busy for ages. After they had done the craft activities and eaten lunch there were a few games including pass the parcel and other fairy related fun. The children all got to taken home a hand crafted fairy want and fairy wings.

{Party Time} Retro Travel Christening

This was something different for us! It was a christenings party for a sweet little boy who was christened at 4 months old. It was a fun theme of retro travel but due to a terrible weather forecast we had to move inside at the last minute. It is always a bit tricky changing things up at the last minute for a new venue but we were lucky that it all came together in the end. 

We loved the back drop to the cake and candy table. The 3D effect uplifts it all and of course the design have a lovely retro feel to it. 

It was fun working on the signage. We have originally planned to have the set up include seating for 50 people but due to space restraints that wasn't possible. Luckily the bags with all the utensils, water and napkins worked well as a baggage claim so people could collect their food and then go to the baggage desk to get everything else they needed to eat. 

Our Photo Booth was as popular as ever! We had a great selection of retro travel related props so everyone was keen to have their 'passport photo' taken before heading home.
