Purple Midsummer Nights Dreamy
The Midsummer Nights Dreamy Party is one of our most popular here at the COOP. It is generally done for birthday girls -- because the fairy wings and tutus and wands and halos are so gorgeous -- what little girl can resist? But the boy gift for this party is also simply adorable -- the Knight costume (complete with a faux chain mail helmet ) is just darling. And the boys ADORE the inflatable (slightly less hectic!) swords! It's a pretty party, for sure -- but the boys are NOT forgotten! This particular party - in fact -- was for a brother and sister. We generally do this party in pinks and purples and whites -- or oranges, reds and yellows -- but this mom wanted purple only. Which I think looked lovely. I got to use the sparklie paper flowers that I made a while ago, sprinkled on the grass table runners with some real peonies as the showstopping center of the table. Hung a few purple butterflies -- and the rest was history. Another gorgeous celebration at the COOP!
