A Butterfly, Princess Birthday

birthday girls

Since Arielle’s and Emma Grace’s birthdays are so close, Anneke and I decided to do a joint party this past Saturday. I’m so glad we did! We each added our own touches and it was absolutely beautiful! I’m almost thinking we should start a birthday catering business. I love it so much!

Anneke decorated the cake. She made butterflies out of egg whites, powdered sugar, and food coloring.

She also cut butterflies from felt and hung them from some tulle that we hung between the trees.


I knit scrappy purses for all the girls and stuffed them with sassy frass hair bands as well as goodies my mom sent me from the states! I think the girls liked them! I sewed a piece of material on the inside so I could personalize them with their names.

The birthday fun consisted of…

The girls (and boys) making beaded necklaces…with some help from bigger hands!

Grandma and Grandpa, Emma Grace says THANK YOU for the princess stuff!


When it got too hot, she made a quick wardrobe change to the dress Anneke made her, but of course kept the crown. She is a princess, after all.
