When you're about to turn six years old, and your mom is an event planner and caterer specializing in sweets, you just KNOW good things are bound to happen in the Birthday Department.
This is a story about Sophie, and her amazing mom, Chana Wood. Among her many other talents, Chana is also a professional photographer. And not only that... she's our friend! So we gave Sophie a Birthday Guestbook and were thrilled when Chana sent us some photos of the "Fairy Party." What a clever idea for a little girl's birthday—we just know you'll love it, too!
Here’s the birthday girl now! That is one sweet fairy dress.
Speaking of sweet... Sophie and friends were treated to TWO of Chana’s wonderful creations: a Mexican Vanilla Butter Cake with ruffles of teal buttercream, and a Rich Dark Chocolate Cake with swirls of buttercream roses.
For party favors, Sophie gave her friends these delicate, translucent boxes filled with magical jewels and candies.
When each girl arrived, she found her very own set of fairy wings waiting for her, which she was allowed to take home after the party.
Look at these adorable fairies! What could they be doing? Hmmm....
Oh my gosh! They're making Guestbook pages!
"They enjoyed it SO much! Each girl colored a photo of Sophie and wrote cute little memories from their school year together."
Fairies laughing! These girls are just so cute. And what a perfect day for a party outdoors!

We love how Chana transformed our Guestbook Store pens and markers into these wonderful writing wands!
Turns out sometimes even fairies have spelling questions! This is Brenna, getting some advice from her Mom and baby sister, Kira.

Chana wrote to tell us how much Sophie loved it:
"After the party, during bedtime, we read the pages to Sophie and her face was glowing with delight! This will surely be a treasure she will cherish for the rest of her life! Very special."
One last wonderful pic—Sophie and Nadia:
We’re glad you had such a wonderful birthday, Sophie—thanks so much for letting us be a part of your special day! And special thanks to you, Chana, for sharing your fabulous images with us!
P.S. For those of you in the Twin Cities/western Wisconsin vicinity who are drooling over that delicious cake picture, you're in luck! Chana's company, Sugar Wood, is right there in Cumberland, WI. She'll be happy to make cake for you, too, AND to photograph the people you love. It doesn't get any better than that!
