Scarlett was recently invited to one of her school friend’s fairy/princess party. Â She decided to go as a garden fairy, wearing the dress I made for her birthday last year. Â She was desperate for a crown to wear and we decided that making one out of foliage would very fitting for a garden fairly. Â So we all headed for a walk down our road in search of flowers, which is a feat in itself considering it’s mid-winter and we live amongst a forrest.
It was lovely to wonder along and take in the gorgeous views that are just a stone’s throw from our house and thankfully there were a few pretty flowers to pick along side the road. Â Although, apparently there’s a rather long process to picking just the right flower for the job and making sure one’s dragon is placed just so in a basket, to prevent crushing freshly picked flowers (Tenneille’s dragon that is).
Once we finally made it home there was a mad rush to get everyone lunch and dressed to get out the door (Tenneille had gone flower picking in her pjs!). Â I constructed the main part of the crown for Scarlett from a vine and she decorated it with all the flowers and foliage. Â We added some pretty ribbon to hang down at the back.
The crown was worn for all of 5 minutes at the party, of course. Â All the girls looked gorgeous dressed up in their finest. Â Especially when they were all on a jumping castle!
It was a special treat for this mama to sit and chat to other parents at the party while Greg took Tenneille and Jairah off to a park. Â All the princesses and fairies went home very happy with balloons in hand and smiles on faces. Â Jacinta x
