Peter Pan and the Fairies.

Hugo was invited to a fairy party the other day and as he is only three and a lot, I was allowed to come too!!!! The birthday girl had pink, feathery wings. That's like a dream. Look at how rich the colour is too - the perfect pink. And a cupcake tower for heaven's sake. Wings just didn't exist back in my day, I had to make do with awkwardly flapping my arms while holding onto sticks. I think I know what I would like for Christmas.
Stars in heaven it makes me want to adopt a little girl but then I start to think... maybe it would just be easier if I had a fairy birthday party for myself.
And here is the birthday boy himself, Peter Pan. I made the costume for Archie when he was still at pre-school and going through a major Peter Pan stage. He only took it off when he had the occasional moment of being King Arthur. So now it is Hugo's turn and what better outfit for a boy to wear to a fairy party. You can just see the eye makeup he was wearing (thanks to the birthday girl's amazingly talented mum). Glam rock really seems to suit him, I might encourage it.
Today is my first day since last year (at least that is what it feels like), to spend a day making stuff. I will be sewing bunting all day in preparation for the boy's birthday parties which are hurtling towards me with alarming speed. They probably don't feel it's quite as important as I do but that's okay. If they are not having fairy parties, they can at least have bunting.... just for their mother's sake.


  1. I firmly believe in Never-never Land; I'll meet you there, I'll be the one with the purple wings! :)

    best - Annri

  2. I so totally get the fairy costume fixation. I encouraged a bit of make believe the other day so I could squeeze into one of their dresses. With some wings and a wand and a bit of trampoline jumping, I really felt like I could fly.

  3. I strongly believe that most every occasion sshould have bunting- very important!
    and yes, the thought of sugary pink fairy parties used to make my ovaries tingle too. i'm mid-way through planning a starwars party and i never, ever thought i would say it but boys themes are actually much more exciting! guess living with three males is wearing off on me...

  4. I completly understand where u are coming from as I have three boys ages 5,3 and 2 and somedays would love to have a little girl, just to have the whole pink, feathers, sparkly thing, but then on other days I just dont know what I would do with a girl, boys are not firmly in my blood and I ahve to say I wouldn t change a thing.....The party looked fab...loving the fairy cupcakes.....I too have to have a little bit of 'pretty' in an all boy

  5. So, so sweet! Who wouldn't love a fairy party. I wonder if I could talk my teenager in to it for her next birthday - Sweet 16. Probably not. :-) Why can't we just have our own fairy party?

  6. Your idea of a fairy party for you is rather wonderful, and hilarious too. I just love the idea of a fairy party for adults, men and women dressed as fairies! Don't you think that would be fabulous?!!!! I t would certainly be a party with the most enormous amount of hilarity, especially the men dressed as fairies. Love Vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)

  7. Ooh, just found your blog! Love how bright and cheerful everything is! I'll be back often, I hope!
