This year Lottie wanted a bush fairies party at the local wildflower gardens. It was a gorgeous spring day and the ranger who led the party was fabulous. The kids all sat around and got to learn about and even touch some of our native wildlfe. They then went on a bushwalk to discover even more about where bush fairies might live and they even came across a wallaby and a goanna. They came back to the education centre for a craft session making glitter covered dragonflies and then of course the party food and birthday cake. They had such a fabulous time I think we will be heading back next year for Will's party. In summer they even go exploring and netting in the ponds......what fun!
Lottie is wearing a top I made at the last minute after lots of debate and some tears from me, lets just say at six I am afraid she is getting past mumma made creations. I used some of my favourite Anna Maria Horner Garden Party fabric and adapted a version of this dress to make it a top. Thank goodness I have a fresh baby to keep me sewing girly goodness for the next 6 years.
