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!
