Fancy Nancy Birthday Party

The centerpiece of Mary Ashley's Fancy Nancy party was her pink strawberry birthday cake. A tiered cake seemed like the ideal choice for our theme, and petal pans gave the layers sweet scallops. Cascades of pink roses and white ribbons added sweet details, and of course no Fancy Nancy cake would be complete without a monogram!

The Invitation:



Outside:

Inside:

(This is my invitation after I made it fancy.)



The inside of each invitation was handcrafted with unique embellishments. Here a glittery bouquet of balloons and banner pop up from a background of soft polka dots, sparkly stars and tiny jewels.

I have so many images from the party, I'll be sharing reflections and ideas throughout the week!

Girlfriend - can I just borrow one invitation and call it my own. I can't get all the party things down...it ends up being emails and telephone calls. That's pretty sad when we determined early on that they were only going to get a friend party on their 5, 8, 10 and 13th bday. (and then my poor 5 year old never got her party because we ended up being out of town..we're making up for it with a big one this year...glad I have flexible kids. :)

My goodness, girl- you are just too much!! My good friend, Heather, and I have a theory about you- you must be up at 3am crafting and creating beautiful things and you must go to bed at midnight. How else to find all the time to make everything so perfect with 4 kiddos!? You're amazing!

Thanks so much for stopping by and your kind words!
