It's a Fancy Nancy Soiree!

Ribbon, ruffles, butterflies, and mini teacups were all part of this 4th Birthday Soiree {that's a fancy word for party} inspired by the Fancy Nancy book, Bonjour Butterfly!
The invitations set the whimsical, fancy mood of the party. The paper used for the invitations was used throughout the party. Personally I'm a big fan of birthday parties held at home {there would have been a handmade banner and a million paper butterflies hanging from the ceiling!} but during this So Cal summer heat wave, having Kendall's party indoors at a party place was definitely a great choice.
The Birthday Girl wore a Fancy Nancy dress that was absolutely adorable!
Even her shoes were fancy! Kendall's favorite color is purple, so the table decorations were these adorable butterflies tied with light purple ribbon, fancy party beads dangling, and... These mini teacups with purple and pink swirled lollipops decorated the middle of each table. Each lollipop had a cardstock letter cut from the Cricut glued on it. One set of tea cups with lollipops spelled ooh la la! and the other spelled out Kendall!

The birthday cake was served on these fancy plates that matched Kendall's dress {the only item purchased from the Fancy Nancy party collection}.
Of course for a fancy soiree, regular Costco water bottle labels just won't do! I removed the store labels and replaced them with customized labels using the same paper used for the invitations and favor labels. Ribbon tied on each bottle made them extra fancy.
Stupendous Swag Bags... so fancy and fun!
Little scalloped favor labels tied with frilly ribbon {Thanks for fluttering over to my Birthday Soiree! Love, Kendall}
Favors for the adults are always sweet... butterfly shaped sugar cookies {my secret recipe} with a sweet little butterfly embellishment attached to the favor tag and ribbon.
And I couldn't resist posting this silly picture of the birthday girl's mama and I having our moment on the birthday throne!
