Whimsy Party!

My awesome friend, Amber, gave her 4 year old daughter a "Whimsy Party," something very unique and memorable for the guests as well as her daughter, I'm sure. The invitation asked the guests to bring something to hang on a whimsy tree instead of traditional birthday gifts; the invite also included a definition of whimsical (to give the guests a nudge in the right direction): 1. spontaneously fanciful or playful 2. given to whims; capricious 3. quaint, unusual, or fantastic.
So we brought a couple of shiny beaded necklaces and a couple of silver bookmarks shaped into the words "Dream" and "Awesome." The bookmarks came with small little chains that made them perfect for hanging on a tree limb. Other guests brought items such as ribbons, ornaments, and even feathers, and all the children got a chance to hang items onto the tree along with the birthday girl. What a fantastic way to celebrate!
