Fairy Garden birthday party!

Juliet desperately wanted to have a "friends party" this year, and after two years of family vacation instead of a party, we thought we better go all out. She decided on a theme easily, she wanted to have a fairy garden party! We waited to celebrate three weeks after her birthday in hopes for some spring weather. The weather didn't cooperate but the party was perfect, nonetheless. 
This friendship makes me so happy. For so long James and Emilia would stick close, but in the last six months these two have become the best of friends.
Baby Will Will and Pap-paps stopped by for a few minutes.
These two have been friends since before they could walk.
A real fairy came to the party and the girls were thrilled. She read them stories, she understood all of the fairy stories and Juliet was entranced.
Every girl got a fairy kiss (glitter star on their cheek).
The main event for any garden fairy party is building your very own fairy garden. This included a pot filled with gravel and moss, topped with rocks, a tiny mushroom, a succulent and a tiny rabbit. No fairy was included because once you set this garden out at home, the fairies will come!

Everyone loved this craft. They stayed engaged and interested for ages perfecting their gardens.

All done (her pinky kills me!)

All done!

Fairy garden cupcakes were SO EASY. I groud graham crackers with green food coloring for moss. I added candy rocks, another bunny and a toadstool for good measure! We served it with "tea" and china teacups for each guest.
The stories were all about fairies and fairy gardens and little girls and everyone was mesmorized.
Well ... almost everyone.

Juliet is SIX

My sweet baby bunny is growing before my eyes. On her birthday we decided to head up the mountains for some lunch and an impromptu photoshoot. Juliet has been very invested and taken with fairies and nature as of late, and I thought like it was the perfect time to let her pretend to be a winter fairy in the woods. The day was so mild (even in the mountains) that she braved a few photos without a coat.
