Fairy Party

Welcome to the world of mystic, fairy dust and dainty wings. Below are beautiful photo's for Roxy's 4th birthday party by Lisa creator of The Red Thread. Her daughter, like most her age, loved the idea of being a fairy for a day but after the fairy party invites were posted Roxy decided she wanted a mouse party, so they compromised and she was a fairy mouse. Lisa attached ears to her tiara, made her a tail and painted her face. The cake "had to have" mice on it too, which she handmade from icing. I think the results are superb, don't you?

Sweet Things
1. Sticky.com.au - Lollipops with the most adorable flavours. They taste better than they look.
2. Lemon Ruffle cake - photo and recipe courtesy of Martha Stewart [
3. The Laduree macaron - These small, round cakes, crisp on the outside, smooth and soft in the middle, are the most famous creation of Ladurée, France but a version of these decadent bites are available
from here.
4. Heart shaped sandwiches made using a cookie cutter.

above: The party was held under a marquee decorated with hand-punched butterflies from a craft shop and stapled to string, with paper streamers hanging down.
The 'fairy rug' is 2 big pieces of plastic backed fabric that Lisa sewed together and made a scalloped edge by tracing around a dinner plate and it required no hemming - easy.

Above: 1. Pass the parcel was made using coloured tissue paper and stickers.
2. Musical chairs with mushroom-like floor cushions.

3. Lisa organised for a friend's teenage daughters to be the 'big fairies' who were fantastic - they read the girls fairy stories, sprinkled fairy dust, ran the pass the parcel, musical statues, etc.
The little fairies adored them.

Stamped calico bags can be used as a favor bag by Martha Stewart.
tip: These make perfectly round impressions with a stamp. Slip a piece of card stock into the bag to prevent the ink from bleeding through fabric. Can be filled with marshmallows, pink musks, mini fairy wings etc.
