Turning Seven

Little Sis turned seven on All Saints' Day, November 1st. We hosted a Fall Fairy Birthday Party this weekend!

We still celebrated on her actual big day. She got a balloon and sweets bouquet from her uncles in D.C. that morning, then climbed into bed with us to open her long-awaited Little Miss No Name.

It was love at first sight. She even took Little Miss No Name to PF Chang's for a family birthday lunch.

Monday, I brought her favorite pumpkin cupcakes to school. Her teacher likes to get each birthday kiddo a small special gift. She got Little Sis a pair of doll legs. Little Sis did a happy dance. Her teacher gets her.

Then Saturday was the fairy party. The fairy playhouse will be coming down soon, as we're finally getting a fence. It seemed fitting to play in it one last time, especially before the cold weather hits. (We may get snow later in the week!)

We made "fairy dust" necklaces, pumpkin cupcakes, acorn ornaments, and hot chocolate. Little girls ran wild all over the yard, and through the house. My friend at Sweet Sugarlicious made gorgeous fall-themed cookies.

There was a fire going outside, in case anyone needed to warm up. The lights on the fairy house twinkled, although the guests left a bit before sunset. After the kiddos left, we ordered pizza with my dad and the girls' godfather, and relaxed in front of the fireplace.

I hope every one of you had a lovely weekend!

  1. This is marvelous. So sweet and creative and special. How many kids came?

    1. I think we had 12 at one point, in addition to mine. They were a few more who were invited, but didn't come. It moved quickly. We set it as a two-hour party, and with this rambunctious bunch, that turned out to be plenty of time! :)

  2. LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE! Oh what fun! And that teacher?? Pure brilliance. It sounds so adorable and falltimey!

    1. The teacher was so nervous about it. She was running around all weekend, looking for cheap doll parts, and her son kept asking her, "Why? Are you sure?" So she was thrilled that Little Sis was thrilled.

      We had a couple of girls who made their way inside to the girls' rooms, complaining about the cold. Big Sis's bedding had to be changed, because dirt got tracked into it. But that's okay. It was time to switch to flannels anyway. ;)

  3. Sounds like the BEST party ever! Love everything about it!! Also, DOLL LEGS? LOVE that teacher!!! All our best wishes for a special little girl!! Ah, I want a fall fairy party!!! xoxo

    1. It was probably more of a crazy, run-around-everywhere-as-loud-as-you-can party than a fairy party, but we'll keep calling it a fairy party. And yes, the doll legs are great. ;) Thank you! xoxo
