( me ) can play and dream and imagine all day long. Daily, I walk past the entrance to this magical room and out of the corner of my eye I swear I see little fairies and gnomes poking out behind the trees, and peering out of the windows of their toadstool houses.
A Woodland Birthday was calling my name and so four very sweet little boys became such gnomes as we played and blew out birthday candles.
Of course, you will find while reading this that the photographs are MUCH better than usual. While I aspire to have the light just right, and I am learning and getting better, I cannot take credit for these. Laura Negri Childers, a local photographer, and in this case, a birthday mom, shared these beautiful photographs with me. If you are ever looking to have family portraits made, you should definitely check out her work here.
Gnome hats...we bought an extra large party hat and took it apart to make a pattern. We drew that pattern on poster board and glue red felt to it. Hole punch elastic and you are done! This could not be any easier!!!!
I love felt!
I found these cute little cupcake toppers and I had to have them. They are handmade.
I bought toadstool cookies to match!
Our little fairies and gnomes found individual watercolor treats waiting for them in the art room!
and a little cupcake cheer!
The garden gnomes were hiding in the flower boxes with little surprises for them to take home.
Laura, thank you for sharing your birthday boy and your photographs with me! I hope you boys had a wonderful Woodland birthday!
