One of the items on our summer list was to host a fairy party. For Grace's last birthday she received the book Now I am a Fairy from her Aunt Delita. Ever since then she has wanted to host a party similar to the one that is shown in the book.
Grace decided to just have our family plus Grandma at the party. She planned the menu (there were several recipes in the book), decided what sort of decorations to use and what we would do at the party. I made some suggestions and helped with supplies but she was in charge!
The children and I made the food and drink together. We dined in the children's garden on magic fruity smoothies, fairy krispies, orange nectar and magic wand fruit kabobs.
Before we ate Grace gave a tour and an explanation of each of the fairy houses she and Harris have built throughout the garden and they did a bit of a demonstration. She also performed a good luck spell!
P.S. We've had very poor luck with the tunnel entrance to the garden this year. First, our nasturtiums never took off and then our morning glories were eaten down to the ground by a very pesky bunny!
