Kate's Fairy Garden Birthday Party ~ Part One

WOW! I don't even know where to start! I couldn't be happier with how Kate's Fairy Garden Party came together! A big thank you to everyone who helped me make her party perfect! The photos turned out gorgeous, thanks to my dear friend, Vicki of Vicki Lynn Photography. She captured the party perfectly and created the sweetest slideshow that I will cherish forever.

I'm going to be posting several posts about the party, detailing: the dessert table, birthday girl's attire, party decorating, and DIY projects! I will be featuring and hosting several giveaways from Etsy sellers who created fabulous things for the party! So....stay tuned....this is just the beginning!





I told you! I have so many details to share!


Let's start by letting me say thank you to all these fabulous ladies:


Amy Atlas {Amy Atlas Events}: inspired my dessert table
Jenn {HWTM}: overall party inspiration, flowering branches

Marian {Sweetopia}: amazing custom cookies
Melissa Mittleman: the perfect flower cake
Kim {Sweeties by Kim}: custom oreo pops and chocolate covered oreos
Nicole {friend}: delicious cake pops
Susie & the girls {neighbors}: yummy meringues
Jess {Pen N' Paper Flowers}: creating the silhouette for my designs
Mia {Dolce Vita Mia}: kate's flower clippies

Amy {True Love Found}: custom "k" crown
Kristina {Modern Frills}: custom flower tank top
Lisa {my crafty friend}: tissue paper flowers/wands
Sally {Polka Dot Market}: polka dot balloons

My Mommy: tutus, cheesecakes, food....
....and of course, to my husband, best friends and family for all of their help
and for not calling me crazy while planning this party!
