We had both Cinderella and Rapunzel visit us last Saturday!
We dressed up, got our faces painted, made some fun crafts, danced, listened to Cinderella read a story about a little fairy girl, watched Rapunzel do magic and make balloon fairy wands. It was a fun morning in Fairyland!
Snow White stopped by on Saturday on her way to a birthday party. Ariel swam by on Sunday on the way to another party, and Cinderella slaved away in our magical Fairyland painting faces and telling stories all weekend long … oh well, beats sweeping floors, right?
Usually I am a pretty modest person… I don’t like talking about how much effort it sometimes takes to make a dream come true… It’s supposed to be effortless if you are a fairy… But this time I just HAVE to!
Just a couple of days ago we were given a difficult task – another entertainment company promised a client what they eventually couldn’t deliver – a Beast in the original Disney Beast costume – they even sent a picture… We were offered this job first but declined since we don’t have that costume and I never promise what I can’t deliver. I honestly looked around but couldn’t find anything I would want our performers to wear, we either do a great job all together or don’t do it at all, there is no in between for us – too many companies do that already and I prefer not to… This lucky little girl was having 2 parties – one at a preschool – where we sent our Rapunzel this Friday and one at a park – where the other company was sending Beauty and the Beast this Sunday. And that combo – Beauty and the Beast (just like the ones in a movie that children were watching over and over again for weeks) really meant a lot to this birthday girl and her friends… But…the other company (on Friday afternoon!!!) came up with some excuse why they don’t have what they promised and tried to offer something else…so, then it was back to us, because the family saw how much children loved our Rapunzel and knew we would do a great job based on that. They asked me to try and find a solution to this. I called and called and called …and searched, and found… nothing… At that point all I could suggest to the stressed out mother of 3 (with a month old baby!!!) that we would send Beauty and…. a pirate… and put a crown on the pirate to make him pass for a prince… That was all we could do on a 1 day notice. And the mother agreed… Easy, right? I’ve honestly done all I could…But, I couldn’t stop, we can’t have a 4 year old disappointed on her birthday even if it wasn’t our fault originally…
Something (it had to be fairies) made me drive by a costume shop on Saturday afternoon (yesterday!) which I didn’t even know existed and they had The Beast!!! The original Disney costume!!!
So, we just made a dream come true today! Just like that! Check out pictures! Click on thumbnails. For more pictures go to our Facebook page. And if you ever need us to get you the moon on your child’s birthday just let me know – fairies work really well under pressure, especially when it’s your child’s dream we need to take care of…
Just came across these pictures and realized that I forgot to post them! We put together this very fun afternoon all the way back in April. It started with making boo-boo bunnies.
What are boo-boo bunnies? Boo-boo bunny is a soft little wash cloth bunny that can serve as an ice pack since an ice cube can be held in the crevice of its body. The bunny can then easily be held by a child with a ‘boo-boo’. These bunnies also make adorable decorations as well as low maintenance pets!

And then real bunnies showed up!
Recipe for a fun party:
Magical ingredients: princess dress, pair of fancy shoes, a crown, a brush and a bunny… Oh, and some carrots of course! Mix it all together, add a pinch of pixie dust, serve any time!
By the way, boys like bunnies too!
Of course when it was time for bunnies to go home an after hours partystarted…
Dragon making actually started with a pretend tea party… Events sometimes change direction in the Magical Fairyland. Note the ages, please – there is a 2 year old, two 5 year olds and two 9 year olds in this picture… all seem to be enjoying the tea party
Fairy Alina came in with her guitar, and some serious dragon making commenced. Click on the thumbnails to see the whole picture.
We named our new friends: Red Wing, Stickers, Square, Jelly Belly, Pinky Binky…
By the way, while we were making them, Fairy Alina wrote a Dragon song, (yes, on a spot… yes, she is that talented…) so we sang it together with her!
It was supposed to rain outside, and we invited fairies to come visit our Magical Fairyland since it never rains here… lots of fairies came… but then…. all of a sudden… fairies turned into viking girls… and then knights and dragons appeared as well… Parents often ask us : ” will boys have something to do in your Magical Fairyland?”. Here is the answer and some pictures to prove it – even during events that are originally planned for fairy girls, boys will have fun… because everybody loves stories and dancing and singing…. and don’t expect fairies to stay fairies – they might turn into some other creatures … Because our Fairyland is Magical!!!…
