Fairy forty fun

So my very good friend Ally recently celebrated her fortieth birthday and to make her birthday magical, she decided to have a fairy themed fancy dress party. I made her a Pagan candle goblet for her gift, with the triple moon symbol on…

and for the party bags I made each of us a shooting star from polymer clay.

The polymer clay was a blend of glittered white, translucent and glow in the dark clay all swirled together and strung on beads with a shining tail. The stars were wishing stars, and the instructions were to make a wish and then hang it in your window, and if the wish was granted, the star would shine at night.

I ordered some new ears especially for the occasion! I think they look pretty cool and actual everyone said that they really suited me…should that be worrying?

Everyone made the effort – these were early photos, unfortunately missing a few fairies who flew in late.

Linda who is in the turquoise and purple dress made this absolutely stunning fairy cake…

The birthday fairy opened her present and we had pass the parcel and party games, and party bags to go home with!

Who says nobody loves a fairy when she’s forty?
