The party was held in the evening to try to escape the heat of the august day. The invitation instructed guests to come with dinner in their bellies, but with enough room for lots of fairy treats:
Fairy Berry Salad with Edible Rose Petals (a crowd favorite)
Button Mushroom Cookies (thank you mom for making these)
Herbed Cheese and Seeded Crackers
Fairy Bread (using homemade bread thanks to a dear friend)
And to drink:
Lavender Lemonade (made with our backyard lemons and lavender). Throwing in a handful of floating gumpaste flowers (graciously brought over by the wonderful Kristin of Meringue Bake Shop) made the delicious drink even more appealing to our little fairy guests.
Finally, the cupcakes from Bake You Happy. They were as delicious as they were gorgeous.
And did you know that in England, cupcakes are called “Fairy Cakes?” Perfect.
