Happy Pink Saturday!

Two weekends ago my mom and I got together to make some beautiful cards out of the most amazing butterfly/fairy paper I have ever seen! I was going to post it last weekend but I was busy with the tea party you will see below. Here is my mom, Ginger, displaying one of her beautiful creations.

And here is one of my favorite cards I made that day. It was a no-makeup day and we all need a break every now and then.

I made some wonderful blueberry crumb muffins and tea for us to enjoy while working on our creations. It was a really sweet time of creating together.

Here are 4 of the cards I made that day. I made several more and they are just as pretty!

I had so much fun making those cards with my mom and I hope we can get together to do that again soon.

Last weekend I invited Maggie, Lucie, and James to a butterfly fairy tea party. I guess the cards I made inspired me.
The theme for the tea table was butterflies, fairies, pink, purple, and glitter!!!

I love how the centerpiece turned out. It is so enchanting and romantic. I don't have the heart to take it down so to this day it is still in the center of my table because I am enjoying it so much. I may just leave the fairies there until Halloween.

I used ivory lace place mats, ivory rose point and pink dishes. I rolled the pink napkins up into roses like my mom taught me to do during our card making day. She always teaches me the greatest things! I poked a beautiful glittery butterfly into the napkin to look like they were hovering over the rose. So sweet! I made each person a party favor place card holder from a toilet paper tube, tissue, scrapbook paper and embellishments. They turned out so beautifully!

I made pink and purple butterfly sugar cookies . . .

and even a special plate of cookies for Mr. Stoops.

Here is the side table that held all of the goodies, including fairy fruit wands, fairy valley veggies and ranch dip, fairy sprite sandwiches, fruity fairy squares, and stained-glass butterfly cookies.

I was so happy about how everything turned out. It ended up being a beautiful, and delicious, presentation.

The girls enjoyed the fairy food . . .

and the tea . . . (isn't Maggie sweet)

and the fun fairy word games we played after our lunch!

I can't believe Maggie will be 11-years-old in December. She will be in the 5th grade this year and she is so excited about school!

Lucie is 7-years-old now and she will be in the 1st grade this year. They start school next week. Lucie had a good summer of learning how to read a lot better. I know her teacher will be impressed because I am sure not many of her classmates know how to read.

James is such a good dad and he is very proud of his girls. I am so excited for him to be a daddy again . . . the daddy of my little bundles of love. I hope that happens soon. I am so crazy about him!

The next day we decided to make fairy houses and we put them in my backyard for the fairies to live in.

That is a real mushroom growing in my rose garden next to this cute fairy house. Isn't it cool!

Maggie's fairy house was definitely the coolest!

She made a bed out of a match box and she made the headboard from pine cone bark. She made a chandelier out of a small pine cone and a little table and chair. It is so cool!

I want to thank Beverly for hosting another fun Pink Saturday. Please check out all of the great blogs there. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and you are able to discover your own fairy fun!

Blessings to you!

Love Tammy

    Tammy, your tea party looked like so much fun. What a happy family you all make together. I loved seeing the pictures of you with the Maggie and Lucie. Looks like they loved the tea party, and the sandwiches and cookies were absolutely delightful. You are teaching them many new and feminine things. I love that most of all. Served with LOVE.
