For my daughter's birthday, she wanted a Fairy Birthday Party. She has always been fascinated by the fanciful and loves all things wings. Her brother wanted to play a huge role in the making of the party items and invitation and I loved collaborating with him on this project. A lot of detail went into the planning of this party to make it a spectacular fairy wonderland. In order to focus on all the details, I've divided this post into 3 parts--the first part today covers the invitation, general guest preparation and the cake. Part 2 will cover the decorations and fairy environment. Part 3 will include a tutorial on wing construction.
For her invitation, Will and I illustrated a Fairy Story inviting folks to come to the secret location of the fairies.
