In planning the party, I wanted Ava Kate to participate. She helped me make the watercolor painted lace crowns. She painted and glittered them for each of her guests. She also helped glitter the mini cakes used on the DIY invitations. Another simple DIY from the party was the neon pink striped tablecloth. Taking an inexpensive curtain sheer, Ava and I painted neon pink diagonal stripes using painters tape to set the lines creating a custom tablecloth for under $5. As guests arrived to the party, they were fancied up with a crown and bubblegum necklace. We transformed a TV room into Neverland. Lights sparkled from the ceiling. Quilts and oversized pillows were thrown about to create a cozy movie watching environment. The girls got to snack on a rainbow of candied popcorn while watching the movie. After the movie, the guests sang Happy Birthday and were treated to a sweets table. The cookies by Callye of Sugarbelle’s were stunning. The birthday girl’s initial was the design on one, while the other cookie featured a cake on a cake stand. Additional sweets included a simple white cake strung with a neon pink tissue fringe cake topper as well as perfectly pink cake pops from Cake Pop Fusion.
My daughter, Ava Kate, has one love … Peter Pan. She loves to read the book, watch the movie and dress the part. I knew before asking her that a Neverland party was in our future.
