As well as running Absolutely Amazing Parties and the Singing Princess I am also mummy to twin girls who are turning 8 in May 2015.
One of my daughter’s, Isobel, is having a farm party at the fabulous White Post Farm in Nottingham (she’s crazy
about animals!) and her twin Carys is having a TinkerBell themed birthday party at home with 9 guests (including her twin)
Carys and I have been busy planning her party including invitations and decoration but what she doesn’t know is that I have planned for TinkerBell herself to make an appearance so this will be a complete surprise although she did ask if I could send an invitation to TinkerBell which we have assured her we have posted.
I take costume very seriously as I never want our performers looking like they have picked a costume up at the local fancy dress shop (nothing wrong with that but when you are paying for a performer I believe there should be certain standards) so our TinkerBell costume is custom made as a replica from TinkerBell’s travel outfit from the film TinkerBell and the Lost Treasure. The costume also includes the dress on it’s own so it can be worn like that also. The wings are fabulous – lovely and iridescent.
Carys and I started by working on her invitation and we started by sourcing a lovely TinkerBell background which I then imported in to my design software. We printed them out on photopaper then added some sparkly detail to them.
Our next job was to have a look at how to decorate the house in a TinkerBell theme, we have kept things really simple with just some fairy lights and table decorations. I used a jam jar with some purple and green ribbon, inside we have placed some gems which I had in the cupboard and some purple sequins. I have ordered some battery operated fairy lights which will sit inside and may also get a couple of TinkerBell figurines to go inside. I also ordered some TinkerBell paper napkins, lilac paper plates, green striped vintage straws, a lime green disposable table cover and a jar of tiny bells to scatter. To welcome guests I also purchased a scene setter sourced off Ebay to go on the door.
