I am going to stick with the Wicked Lovely inspiration 


Garden at night with fairy lights strung throughout. There  is a low to the ground table with pretty flower center pieces and vases with sparklers. 

Music with be band of fairies (or musicians) that play string and wind instruments with a woodsy feel to the notes. 

There will be lots of dancing and swinging on the tree swings, and of course just playing around. 

For drinks we have Fairy Wine (see above) 
Finger foods such as avocado and fruit salad 
and mini jam sandwiches/mini cheese and cucumber sandwiches 
strawberries and chocolate fondue for desert (from a fondue fountain)

Today I had some previous engagement so I am just now getting  home from and now I have an errand to run. Then I wil come back and plow down to reading.

I will be attempting to finish these books first.

5 to 1 30 percent done  I Am Princess X 62/240 pages done. 

Hour 1: 
Mini Challenge- 100 years. 

My guess for 3 books that will be classics in 100 years. I think these books fit because the writing, the content, and the popularity. All these books have great discussion points and speak a strong story.
