As I type in the title for this post, I am starting to think we are a little Peter Pan obsessed! And maybe we are. Or maybe myself and my middle Bee are and the other two little Bees could care less… which is most likely. They are pushing for a princess party, but since I reserved our Peter Pan event months ago, off to Never Land we go!
In anticipation of having back-to-back birthday parties in about 9 weeks, I thought I would start some prep work now. Invitations have been printed (thanks to etsy) and now I am starting to think of favors. Thank goodness for Pinterest! I found several types of Pixie Dust favors online and using them as inspiration, I bought:
Glitter- 16 oz. for $6 Michaels- or pay more online like I did [sigh]- http://www.amazon.com/Creative-Charles-Leonard-Glitter-41170/dp/B001QOGZO4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1400377977&sr=8-2&keywords=gold+glitter
Cork Jar Favors (set of 18) – $15 with coupon – http://www.michaels.com/10213153.html#q=cork+favor+jar&start=1
And I found “pixie dust” labels on etsy, printed them and hole-punched the top.
I made a siphon out of a post card and started to spoon 3 heaping spoonfuls of glitter into each jar. While doing this, some dust sprinkled out on to the table and I noticed my youngest Bee grabbing it and sprinkling it over her head. I think she was hoping it would be enough pixie dust to help her fly, so I had to ask her not to fly away tonight.
When all the bottles were full, I corked them and added the labels using green sparkling curling ribbon. I had enough glitter left that I could have probably filled all 18 bottles to the top! And now I have to hide these from my Bees or else I might find them doused in pixie dust and ready for flight!
