All my life I have been a lover of fairy tales, from the original stories to clever retellings. So when I began reading about this party that Elissa Stone threw for her son’s third birthday, I was thrilled! This celebration full of white, gold, and green was a magical mash-up of four classic tales, including Peter Pan, Robin Hood, and two stories involving The Big Bad Wolf, The Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood. After receiving a “message in a bottle” invitation, Benjamin’s friends and their families arrived at the party, a “Once Upon a Time” wreath inviting them inside the front door. A rich assortment of treats was offered at the dessert table, including crocodile and clock cookies, cupcakes topped with arrows and targets, and chocolate coins. Guests sipped lemonade from birch straws and snacked on pigs in a blanket as they wrote down “Happy Thoughts” for the birthday boy. Upon venturing out into the yard, the kids had fun cutting out black paper shadows and crafting arrows from sticks, feathers, and felt. Each family then grabbed a basket of food to enjoy a picnic supper before watching Disney’s Peter Pan beneath the night sky.
