A Whimsical Fairy Tea Party

For Belle's 3rd Birthday Party we organised a Fairy themed Tea Party for her and all her little fairy friends.  This is the first year she has really been excited about having a party and told me everything she wanted there and even who she wanted to sit next to at the party table!!

Final preps before the fairies and elves arrive

Please let my party go to plan :)

As well as the party bags and fairy wings on their chairs the guests each had a personalised plant pot with a flower in to take home. Big hit with the mummies :)

Clear up time! "You are not taking my balloons"

Still suffering with morning sickness I roped my amazing mum in to help with organising things and I really couldn't have done it without her.  I can not tell you the amount of requests I have had by other mum's to hire her (she also runs a blog at www.candlelightcottage.blogspot.com if you want to check her out).  She helped make all our ideas come to life and boy were we shattered at the end of the day!  A good time was had by all and most importantly Belle.  Weeks later she is still talking about it!

Where from? (please note all items were bought with our own money and nothing here is sponsored)

We bought the party food from Marks & Spencers Party Food range and collected it on the morning of the party which was so convenient.  Everyone particularly liked the cute caterpillar sandwiches!

Belle's dress I bought from one of my absolute favourite boutiques ilovegorgeous and it was the Jubilee Dress in shell pink

We hired Music Bugs entertainment and they were superb! They did all Belle's favourites such as bubbles, parachute and the classics like the hokey cokey and even organised the party games such as pass-the-parcel. Leaving us able to sit back and relax.
