I am over the moon excited to share Riley’s birthday party. The party was inspired by Riley’s favorite book, Camilla the Cupcake Fairy by Tim Bugbird. If you haven’t read it, I promise you won’t be sorry. It’ll have your little princess even more excited about cupcakes than she already is. My color scheme for the party was hot pink and lime green. I tried to carry the color scheme throughout the entire party. My absolute favorite part of the party was the dessert table. I made absolutely everything, which included a three tiered fondant cupcake cake, cupcakes sprinkled with green fairy dust, magic wand pretzels, magic wand fruit kabobs, magic wand chocolate lollipops and cupcake sugar cookies.
The first thing to greet the guests was my Cupcakes’s Birthday sign. You can find the tutorial here.
Our cupcake centerpieces were centered around the magic wand favors, which each guest took with them into the party area for games. I also framed the gorgeous cupcake fairy invitation, which was created by Janette Chiu.
In our dining room I set up a table with coloring pages of cupcakes and magic wands so that we could wait for the rest of the guests to arrive. I individually made the cupcake ornaments with each child, which worked out better than I hoped. You can find a fabulous tutorial by The Evas of Bellabini here.
After the craft was complete we played Pin the Cherry on Top and Musical Chairs. It was a ton of fun watching Riley play musical chairs for the first time. You could definitely tell, which kids had older siblings.
The party was so much fun! Riley is still talking about it and the best moment of the day was when Riley rounded the corner into the dining room and saw the room put together for the first time. Her words were, “Mommy, it’s beautiful!” Tear! She definitely knows how to make her mama happy.
