Fairies and cupcakes and drama, oh my!

Yesterday we had a fairy birthday party for the Diva. Being a Diva, she vetoed my original plan for a Luau birthday. When I asked her what kind of party she wanted she said " A pink fairy party with pink cake and lovely people.

My mom (Grammy) made six pairs of beautiful fairy wings by hand. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of all of the wings. I am really bummed about this, because they were beautiful. The Diva, being a diva, would keep her wings on for long periods of time. But it was quite adorable to see all the little fairy girls prancing and pretending! Grammy also made the pink cupcakes, which were adorable and delicious. I made a punch and called it Fairy Punch. It was such a success that the Diva pretty much wore a red mustache all day long. (My sugar rules kind of went out the window for this party, I even served pixie sticks! Go ahead and judge me, I'm cool with it!) We had tons of snacks, even healthy ones! We played Hullaballoo and had a bean bag toss. Despite the fact that the Diva refused to nap and was an occasional cranky pants dictator, I would say the fairy party was a success. We did indeed have lovely guests and we were so glad that could join us for our celebration! The Diva's actual birthday is tomorrow. She is having a hard time letting go of two and so am I!

Time for the cupcake!A happy Diva, hooray for a Dora sticker book!
An angry Diva, who knows what set her off this time!

A pair of the beautiful fairy wings made by my talented mom! Thanks Mom!

The cupcakes, pink as requested. They were tasty! Even Daddy-o who doesn't like sweets gobbled one up! Thanks again to my amazing mom!
