<p>First of all...wanted to send out huge thanks to any and all ideas shared. They were a great help and inspiration for even other ideas! It went very well,</p><p>considering I threw it all together in like 3-4 days. I also was pestering guildies for gifts for her, msgs for her card, etc. : P  It became quite a</p><p>project/labor of love..and as usual I got carried away! LOL</p><p>But everyone had fun and I was pleased by the birthday girl's reaction as well as others. =)</p><p>I made up the party scene on the back outdoor area of the large gorowyn home (the home that the birthday girl owned),</p><p>and since I wasn't doing the rest of the house, had fun in so many details for this small portion of the home.</p><p>I used like half the item count on this party alone! LOL  Yikes!</p><p>So, without further ado, here are the images of the party scene:</p><p>===============</p><p>When you walk to the veranda door, you come upon a huge gift, a surprise/Happy Birthday sign that shouts out.</p><p>The flower globe was inside the gift box, but I left it out for this image.</p><p>I used a glimmering temptation aka shiney, to sparkle above the globe giving it an extra flair...</p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bday1.JPG" /></p><p>And now we pass through the curtain to the outdoor party scene...beware...its VERY girly...</p><p>the way the birthday girl likes things!  She also loves the color blue (and fairies), I was told. So, I had fun with that.</p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bday4.JPG" /></p><p>And the fireworks show has already begun!</p><p>Looking back at the door----</p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bday2.JPG" /></p><p>Looking to the right as you walk in...the dessert and beverage area---</p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bday3.JPG" /></p><p>Watching the fireworks show from the pillow pile I made for everyone to cozy up on!  PILLOW FIGHT!! </p><p>Too bad I don't have one of those clickable house pillows to have an actual one! Hope that comes back around again</p><p>{{hint at devs and flashes them some cookies}}----</p><p>ooooo....ahhhh....pretty colors! Where'd I put that darn camera?!?</p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bday5.JPG" /></p><p>A closer look at the birthday-themed hot tub, complete with cozy seating area...and even a cushioned step-entrance to it--</p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bday6.JPG" /></p><p>Guess who I recruited to launch the fireworks??  : P   Doesn't he look thrilled??</p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bday7.JPG" /></p><p>The birthday cake table and a closer look at the cake!  {{HUGE hugs}} to the person that passed on the idea of the</p><p>cake...I ran with it!  =)</p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bday8.JPG" /></p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bdaycake.JPG" width="1089" height="600" /></p><p>Far and close up views of the gift and card platform---</p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bday9.JPG" /></p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bday10.JPG" /></p><p>The birthday card has greetings, two ascii images (happy face and tulip) inside, and the personal messages</p><p>and wishes from all the guild members that I was able to track down. She was thrilled when she read it!</p><p>I also passed one huge trade of gifts from the guildies...things they crafted like house items, rare-using</p><p>sales crates, and one guy famous for stealing people's cookies, crafted her some cookies. She was also</p><p>given some prov-made birthday cake, some wisdom-boosting martini's (she is an inquis), some frostfell</p><p>crackers for surprise gifts, a teddy bear, and a birthday hat (the blue/starry frostfell hat). And I am sure</p><p>there is a bunch more I'm not thinking of.</p><p>--------------------</p><p>And now the <span>pièce de ré·sis·tance...from the shadowbox queen...a fairy/girly themed shadowbox just for </span></p><p><span>the birthday girl!  Gosh I LOVE creating these!  =)</span></p><p>Wide shot of Kelethin treehouse home...2 floors showing...the stable area up above, and the</p><p>sewing utility/den room. And just a sliver of the outdoors to the side.</p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bday11.JPG" /></p><p>This birthday girl/inquisitor is a tailor, so I thought only the best...a handmade tinker-powered</p><p>sewing machine. It looks better in person, since two of the cogs move/are animated. It appears one</p><p>of the residents is about to sit down to create something right now! In the far window, if you look</p><p>close, you can even see a castle in the distance. =)   ------</p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bday12.JPG" /></p><p>And of course the stables, complete with 2 unicorns and a fairy rider about to take her</p><p>beloved friend out for a ride!  ----</p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bday13.JPG" /></p><p>The street sign, complete with usage of the birthday girl's name!  ----</p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bday14.jpg" width="712" height="524" /></p><p>I had my provisioner toon make up everything from the provisioner mastery books as a goodie</p><p>bag/party favors for the guests...the throwable pudding, cake and breads, the drinks that have</p><p>illusions and give you the feign death appearance, the vampire teeth/vampire illusion, the jester's</p><p>cap and forget-me-not (lovey-look-in-mirror gesture/emote), etc...and bought up a huge slew of</p><p>the shard of love fireworks from the broker! Cheap and fun items too! The guests had a blast pelting</p><p>each other and trying out the toys, as they explored all the things to see. This is one way a somewhat</p><p>busy/cluttered look is nice, gives people lots to look at and talk about!  =))</p><p>Everything went well and despite short notice and only about a dozen people able to make</p><p>it...went very well and the birthday girl was VERY thrilled and VERY suprised upon entering</p><p>and seeing this gala in her home. I hope it brightened her spirits and is an extra tonic in getting</p><p>better! I had so much fun creating it, and sharing it, and partying with guild! I kept telling her</p><p>elves did it all, and I caught them in the act.  : P</p><p>Again, a HUGE thank you for ALL your fabulous ideas and inspirations...couldn't have done it</p><p>without this terrific forum! I LOVE coming here and just reading, laughing, enjoying something</p><p>in common, and of course GAWKING over your works!</p><p><img src="http://katfancies.com/bday15.jpg" width="913" height="536" /></p><p>Thanks for viewing our birthday party! If you wish to see in person, she is in Timorous Heights,</p><p>Timorous Deep, Freeport server (5 room/outdoor home) under the name Zephia. It is not on the</p><p>leaderboards since this is just one area of the house made into a party thing. The rest of home</p><p>is undone. So you have to make your way there if you wish to see. She does have it set to visitors though. =)</p>

<p>Execelent job!!   A very thoughtfull thing to do...</p><p> Another good way for balloons for any future work, is using the pool balls off the broker, I used bulbs for my balloon dart game for my midway I had made.... spent days and days on them, then they came out with the pool balls grrr,   but really they make awsome balloons,</p>

<p>Thank you for the really nice comments all! =)  I felt happy with it...</p><p>but most of all...I was really happy to add some nice moments for a girl</p><p>who has things pretty tough. Made her smile...and I live for causing those. =))</p><p>Great idea on balloons too...woulda saved me a hefty bunch of plat on broker for those baubles lol </p><p>Taught me to stock up better on frostfell stuff...if it ever gets here hehe</p><p>And cloud...be happy to, any time. I enjoy being akin to Santa in real life most,</p><p>so always a joy. I added your name on Freeport btw..since I know you go there.</p><p>Added on Katttara and Lunshea (my carp)...but I never seem to catch you to say hello! =)</p><p>Figures, I just happen to stumble on someone's idea for a wedding cake on here</p><p>today too...after the fact.  =)  But it inspires even more ideas. Been searching heavily</p><p>for people's ideas on frostfell to inspire me, and trying to decide still where to build it.</p><p>Gosh how I wish I could craft gingerbread dividers right now to get started on structure =)</p><p>COME ON SOE....throw us a bone!!  LOL</p><p>Thanks again all...love coming here! =)</p>

<p>I can't wait for Frostfell either. Your decorating has given me so many Ideas for our Guildhall. Unfortunately I lost some of my Frostfell Crafted items when I changed Guilds, but that is OK, I can rebuild everything. Have about 3 years worth of Frostfell Harvestables in my carpenter and Provisioner's banks, so no Lack of supplies...</p>

<p>I would have never thought of the ornaments for balloons. what a fantastic and cute idea!</p>

<p><span style="color: #99cc00;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: book antiqua,palatino;">How nice and thoughtful of you to throw such an awesome birthday party for the girl. From first screenshot to the last - it looks very festive and permeated with happiness. Just looking at it made my day! Those balloons are sooo realistic and the cake is incredible as well as the miniature house <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></span></span></span></p>
