If you know me, you know I love celebrating birthdays. And this one is especially sweet as it's Maddie's 5th Birthday! Seriously how is she 5 already!

As we were talking about what we were going to do this year, we blended together a few of her favorite things. She definitely has a love for woodland creatures (or any little animals for that matter!), tea parties, and whimsical girly goodness. A fairy woodland tea party seemed to tie it all together.

This year I included her a bit more on what we were going to do, eat, and invite. We invited some of her favorite little friends and their siblings whom she couldn't wait to see. We planned a simple but fun little menu perfect for fairies. And got together the cutest little kids crafts. I loved that she was so enthusiastic and excited. Five is such a fun age!

This year we got the Secret Garden Tea to bring their High Tea to go to our home. They brought their own tea tiers and plates along with all the goodies for the little ladies. I loved that there were savory and sweet treats. Having the high tea to-go really made the party so much easier and stress free. And it looked so cute all put together. (And I love that their high tea to-go is so convenient!)

I did have some other snacks in addition to the high tea which included fruit kabobs, carrot sticks, cucumber slices, animal cookies, mini muffins and mini croissants. I served everything on white cake stands (my favorite!) and put some of the veggies/cookies in tiny tea cups. I loved this idea of using the tea cups as part of the decor!

And finally the cake! I bought the cake at our local grocery store, and it was surprisingly so yummy! I ordered it with some specific instructions. I wanted vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream. And I asked for pale light pink icing and no piped borders. Then once I got it home I added sprinkles on the top and put my own cake topper on. I also added a few tiny woodland creatures (can you spot the 2 bunnies and family of deer?).

I think she was most excited about the fairy crafts! We collected the cutest little wooden houses from a local dollar store for the girls to paint at the party. We got the most adorable balloon banner from Paper and Parties in all shades of pink! It was the perfect backdrop for a fairy party. 

Instead of making favor bags (which I usually do) this time I made items that we could use for the party and decorations as well. I made some adorable fairy sprinkle dust, fairy wands and included little bracelets on each plate setting. The girls also got to take home their fairy house crafts at the end of the party.

This year I also asked a photographer friend Parisa to come and help me take some pictures of the girls during the party. I usually try my best to spend some time taking picture of the party set up and the kids before the party starts. But once everyone arrives, I get so busy I hardly take any during the party. It was so nice to have her snapping pics while we were busy attending to the party. And she is so sweet too!

Maddie really had the best time, despite the fact that she was still slightly under the weather from being sick earlier in the week. But she still tells me she had the best party ever. And that's really the most important part, isn't it?
