Olivia's Fairy Fest11.17.2014
|Flower crown by Think Pink Bows and Dresses from My Princess Penelope|
My first thought was that Olivia would need a pretty crown with large flowers. I knew that Think Pink Bows could make us something truly special and turned to Emily to collaborate on the project. Her team was able to come up with the most stunning headbands for each of our guests in addition to the flower crown. Olivia, Emery and I were speechless when we met at her studio for fittings and saw the finished product. The workmanship, quality and attention to detail is the best of the best.

I wanted to design an invitation that was very simple, adorned with several sprigs of fresh greens and wildflowers fastened by jute. The girls and I had so much fun running through the garden, cutting and gathering the greens and flowers. Olivia lined up all of the flowers neatly in piles and beamed with joy when she saw how lovely they looked all marching in a row.
Harmony of Provo generously hosted the party for us at their character-filled fine fabrics and knitting boutique. The home, known as the Hannah Maria Libby Smith House, dates back from 1878. The space is quaint, charming and was perfect for the occasion. If you are local here in Utah this is a shop that you mustn't miss.
Wasn't that party simply magical?!
Like Jacqulinne, you too can throw your own daughter (or yourself) a beautiful Fairy Fest that is very friendly to any budget you may have. The trick to this, is to embrace DIY projects and find ways to exchange services (i.e. If you know a Mumsy who bakes amazing sweets that you would love to have at your party maybe you could offer to watch their kids for X amount of hours in exchange for them to make treats for your party-I used to do this a lot with Baking with Blondie!)
Whether you choose to go this route or not, just remember that when it comes down to it, the best Birthdays your children will ever recall are the ones in which you filled with love and made all about spending time with them. Because, you,
yes Y O U,
are what your child loves and needs most in their lives.
Happy Monday Mumsies!
