turning 5 and a butterfly party

My baby turned 5 this summer! 5 suddenly seems so big. I'm seeing how the year fly by, as everyone told me they would with kids. 5, 10, 15...it goes quick if you don't stop and take a breath. And there's not often much time to stop and take that breath. 

To celebrate this milestone, we held a pretty little butterfly party for Sage. This party was much different than the big'uns we've had in the past, which included family and friends and the parents of friends. This was a big girl celebration - an intimate party with a handful of girls in Sage's JK who were continuing on with her to SK, so they could bond and reconnect over the summer before they headed back to school.



I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to transform these dollar store butterflies into pretty butterfly crowns, and how lovely they looked all jumbled together, awaiting our guests' arrival.


 A 'ReBashed' fabric strip backdrop.


Pretty and edible butterfly cake toppers from IncrEDIBLE Toppers. Butterfly dress from H+M Kids.


Let's take another look at the cuppies, shall we? When I spotted these 'coral, mint, and sage' edible paper toppers I knew they would be perfect.


The tablescape. Sage helped make the muffin paper butterflies we placed all over the room.



My attempt at chalkboard art.

 


Sage is obsessed with s'mores and sprinkles, so I knew she would devour this dessert.


Pretty Queen Anne's Lace picked from a nearby field. Matching loot bag tags.


My baby is 5 years old! And growing into such an amazing young lady.


This was such a fun and easy party. What's not included in the photos - the kids creating a butterfly craft, climbing outside on the playset, jumping in our jumping castle and playing in the sandbox. Everyone had a blast. High five, Sage!
