Lucy’s 4th Birthday
I can’t believe I actually have a 4 year old! I know we all say this every year, but how did that go by so quickly?! We had a very low key day on her actual birthday. She work up and blew out the candles from her birthday ring. (This year she actually set it up herself- Miss Independent!)
Later, she opened gifts from the family. Daddy and I got her this wooden workbench.
I made each child a fairy wand (dowel with ribbons and a little bell up top) and some fairy headbands. The picture below is the headband before adding the ribbon hanging down. It was cute seeing all the girls wearing these during the party. I had also bought supplies to make some woodland elf hats should any boys had come, but it ended up being an all girl party!
Lucy and I also made some centerpieces. We bought a plain, plastic green plant on clearance and then added some flowers and other decorations to it. Lucy also painted some fairy houses to set on the table.
Another favor each child received was a wooden fairy. Here they are before finally being finished. It was actually quite relaxing sitting around and painting them. I bought plain wooden pieces from Michaels and then just painted them with simple craft paint. I added a layer of Mod Podge after the paint dried.
Here are the favor bags fully assembled.
I made a few appetizers for the party as well. This is not the greatest picture, but these were actually fairy wand sandwich skewers that turned out pretty cute!
It was a fun day. I especially liked that Lucy was now old enough to really help with preparing her party. She’s already brainstorming ideas for Theodore’s 1st birthday in June!
