I had so much fun planning this party. I thought the girls could be fairy princesses and the boys could be Peter Pan. I learned a lot more about geometry making these hats than I ever did in school.
Amelia and other moms helped at the Fairy Floats station. I wasn’t sure that our homemade bubble solutions were going to work, but leaving them over night was the key. They turned out great and this very well could have been deemed most popular station.
and of course, hooping.
We had a Make a Flower Friend station…
We grilled out burgers and hot dogs and had all the trimmings, accompanied by way too many flies–one of those farm drawbacks.
Special thanks to my brother’s girlfriend Kate for being my roving photographer. I was able to enjoy the party so much more since I wasn’t always thinking about “getting the shot”.
I think some of these pictures were also my sister’s, so thanks to her too! And many many thanks to all our family and friends who came and helped so graciously and made our party the super fun time it was!

That party looks like so much fun! I love the cakes you made, and the hats are too cute. I bet your kids will remember this party for years to come!
Wow! You amaze me! Next year can you invite me, too?! It looks like so much fun! 🙂
That is quite the impressive party! I think the cake deserves an award! It looks like everyone had a great time.
Looks like it was tons of fun. I love planning parties ;). You did a great job. And your husband's a trooper for doing the fairy thing with your son too ;). Mine probably wouldn't have gone along with that. Thankfully though I can do the boy's birthday separate from the girls since they are 5 months apart ;).
That cake turned out great! I'll probably never make it, but I am glad you did!!
That looks like such a fun party! I'm stopping by after seeing a reference to your blog in Family Fun magazine. I'm a homeschooling mom too, and I love to read about other homeschooling families, so you've found yourself a new follower!
