Weekend Wrap Up: Wishes

What did you wish for when you were 6?  I can't remember mine, but I'm sure it was scrumptiously silly.  I only hope hers was too.

We had her birthday party at Gracie's Garden... the PERFECT place for girlie-girl princesses.  Absolutely perfect.  I felt like I was 6 as well, reliving my lost childhood fantasies in this cornucopia of pink, tulle, dress- up clothes and sheer adorableness.

There was attention to every detail... every corner of this antique home turned princess party heaven was accessorized with taste. The adults sipped tea and coffee from victorian tea cups while the girls played games, dressed up twice, did the limbo and enjoyed freeze dance as well as putting on a musical parade.

It ended with a craft. Each girl and the parents selected a bead for Pink's Wishing Necklace. We each clasped our bead to our hearts, closed our eyes and made a silent wish for her.  Ellen, the co-owner of Gracie's Garden, strung a beautiful necklace with sterling clasp.  A necklace full of wishes.  So sweet.

We ended with the ceremonial pizza and cupcakes for all.

Pink dreamed that night of all her wishes coming true.

I told her perhaps some will, perhaps some won't. Unfulfilled wishes aren't necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes, a wish not granted ends up being a blessing in disguise.

Although, some wishes are worth fighting for...
