Fairy Princess Garden Party

For Madison's 3rd birthday we did a fairy princess "garden" party in Vivi's backyard. It was a beautiful day. I had so much fun with this party!

I spent countless hours watching DVR'd shows making all of these tutu's over the past month. They are SO easy to make but when making 11 of them it takes a while! All of her female guests received a tutu, wings and a fairy wand as part of their party favors to take home and to wear to the party that day.

Vivi had the perfect backyard for the occasion!

We had the usual crowd for our Dallas birthdays. Both sides of the family, of course, plus the Benton and Niswanger clan! We always enjoy catching up with them!

Rudy and Patricia and company were nice enough to drive in all the way from Monroe, La. Amber soaked up some Noah snuggles as much as she could (Hailey was her big helper).

Madison woke up from her nap and was SO excited to go down and get her outfit on for her party!

Audrey (13 months)  looked pretty cute in her little outfit too

The boys were pirates! We only had 4 boys and I didn't want them to feel left out of the dress up fun. They really got into the costumes too.

It was hard to get one without the tulle blowing in the way because it was a little windy. 

Aunt Beekah made a tutu and dressed up too! Madison LOVED that.

Vivi made sugar cookies into wands so they could decorate the cookies (vivi's specialty). 
They loved this part!
