My daughter's 5th birthday party was a big hit. 

Here is the invitation I sent out:



When the guests arrived they all received goody bags with Tinkerbelle bookmarks in them.  They then went to the party room and got their faces painted.  The party room was decorated like a forest.  Each pine tree was decorated with items the the kids could earn after each activity - crowns, wings and wands.



I then read them a story about Neverland fairies and told them how a fairy was born (from a baby's laugh).  I then showed them my magical bubbles and told them that only true fairies could catch them.  I used "catch-a-bubble" which harden in the air and you can catch them.





After they caught the bubbles they received their fairy crowns.  I then handed each girl their goody bag again and had them sprinkle pretend pixie dust on them and inside was a Tinkerbelle necklace.  The kids were surprised that the necklaces had magically appeared.  Next we played musical lilypads where the kids would stand on a lilypad and we would play music.  The kids would dance around and when the music stopped they would have to find a lilypad.  The person that was left without a lilypad would earn their wings and have the birthday girl open their present.



Tutorial for wings:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=146985.0

After all of the presents were opened the kids went upstairs to color fairy pictures while I setup the table for the cake.











The kids came back down to the forest and found their goody bags.  They sprinkled pixie dust on them again and inside they magically found Disney Fairy figurines.



We sang happy birthday and had cake.  Instead of ice cream I bought Eddy's Dibs. Little chocolate covered ice cream balls.  We said good bye and each kid got to take home their goody bags, crowns, wands and wings.  Everyone had a great time and I can't wait for next year's party.

That sounds like such an awesome party! and I love your cake.  Great job!  I love that the fairy that was "out" in the lillypad game earned her wings and got to have her present opened.  What a fabulous idea.  Love this party!

That is one of the best parties that i have seen! All you hard work really pays off when the kids are so happy. I too love your lilypad game. The party is more fun when there are no losers. For my daughters mermaid theme we did hot potatoe and past around ariel. When the music stops each child got to pick a prize from the treasure chest in the middle. Do you have any good penguin theme ideas? Thats our next party.

That is so cool and sooo getting bookmarked.  You are so imaginative and your daughter is so lucky.  It looks like all of the kids had a blast.  Awesome job.

LeesaLove - I did make the cake.  My girls helped make the flowers.  It was really easy and they had a blast.

mmd32 - I think some of the parents were surprised at how much I put into the party.  Maybe they would hire me to do their kids party Smiley  I would love to try and turn my talents into a business.
