shhh! fairies at play
Melinda recently held her daughter's party and sent in such lovely photos! Totally inspired for the fairy party I am throwing for my goddaughter next weekend!
In Melinda's words...
"Hi there, on Saturday we had our little girl's 3rd birthday party. All of the decor was either bought or hired from In Good Company. I'd like to thank you for making my little girl's day such a special one x
Emma's 3rd birthday party was held at The River Cabin, a gorgeous venue just outside of Jo'burg. I had started off with a toadstool theme but it soon became a magical wonderland party fit for a fairy princess.
Danielle from Moemas did the catering which included the most beautiful cupcakes, biscuits and homemade marshmallows on sticks. We also had veggie crudites and fresh raspberries, strawberries, grapes apples and bananas to prevent too much of a sugar overload. The moms and dads were treated to a feast of pastries, quiches, meringues and a cheese board. There were thank you gifts for the moms decorated with toadstools, which I made (with love of course). Emma's birthday cake was a toadstool and the piece de resistance was the tiny little Ben dressed as a woodland bunny which Danielle made.
Because Emma loves anything fairyish at the moment I made her a gorgeous pink and red peti tutu but as soon as Kerry the face painter turned Emma into a cat that was the end of that idea. She stayed in character the entire morning, short of asking for a bowl of milk.
All of the decor was either bought or hired from In Good Company, a treasure chest of a shop in Parkhurst that goes by the motto "nothing you need, but everything you want". Balloons and the bubble machine were provided by Elise at Jumping Jack.
Sherene, the super talented photographer from innereyephotography, captured the day for us. A face painter, a bubble machine, a homemade pinata and loads of friends made it a super special day and the little guests didn't want to leave. Always a sign of a good day in my books.
