I declare the 351st Fairy Festival over!

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008
Hello lovely Fairy Friends!

Well, well, what a fabulous Fairy Festival we had. It tired me out soooo much, it’s taken me a week to get enough energy back to be able to write all about it! (Plus, I’ve had to clean up lots after the party!)

So let me tell you all about it. The afternoon of the festival was a very busy one. Crystal, Blossom, and I ran around putting all the finishing touches on the decorations. Stardust’s Pixie orchestra arrived as we were threading the pink tulle around the chairs, and one of the pixies (Lulu I think her name was) got her wings stuck in a bit of the tulle, but JubJub the elf helped her out of it. We watched Fairy Floss bring out all her goodies – she must have been in her fairy kitchen for a week preparing the feast! I couldn’t resist sneaking a little of the Pistachio fairy floss – and oh boy was it good! I brought out the Sunshine Smarties and Blossom just went crazy (she loves them) and I had to stop her from diving into the big bowl and rolling all around in them! Fairy Raine bought along her grandmothers Cloud Juice, and she handed a crystal teacup to each of us to try – just to make sure she had added enough pearl dust. We all agreed it was the BEST Cloud Juice we had ever tasted.

Petal arrived with the fireflies – it was their job to light the stage during her dance routine and she got them all organised. Seashell bought Mermaid Takumi along to introduce to us – so she would know everyone by the time the festival began. I tested Rainbow’s Fairy Fizz Bomzles and they seemed like they were going to work very well indeed, but it was still daylight and so I couldn’t see what colours they were going to be – you really need to test bomlzes against the night sky to see the colours, but I just didn’t have time the night before.

It seemed like everything was pretty much ready – so I went back to Crystal Castle to have a dewdrop bubble bath and get ready for the big night ahead. I got dressed in my gown that I had made especially for the festival (oh who am I kidding, we Fairies get a new gown made for each and every event in Fairyland!). My gown was made from duckdown – that’s the soft part underneath the feathers from white ducks. All the ducks in Fairyland had been collecting down for me for the whole month and so we had lots and lots to make my dress with. It was the softest, most delicate dress I think I have ever worn, and it was a little fluffy as well! Once or twice during the night, a duckdown feather would float out of my dress, and would generally land somewhere near my nose and tickle me so I would sneeze. All the fairies thought this was funny as when I did sneeze, more feathers would fly out of my dress and make me sneeze even more. Maybe a dress from duckdown wasn’t the best idea (I sneezed LOTS) but at least I was warm and cosy as the night ended up quite cool.

So, the festival itself – let me tell you, I think it was the very best May Day Festival of Fairies that I have ever been to (well, in the last 400 years at least!). Stardust’s pixie orchestra played all our favourite tunes and we were amazed at how wonderfully she had trained the night stars to perform in time with her music. They jumped this way and that, and every now and then, one would go shooting far off into the night sky. Maybe you saw some of this if you were out looking at the stars that night, it can be hard to miss a shooting star as they go whizzing past. (Stardust tells me you should always wish on a shooting star as they generally grab the wish as they fly past). Rainbow set off her Fairy Fizz Bomzles then, and oh my, the colours were spectacular! There was sunshine yellow, rocket red, hot pink (just for Petal and Blossom), perfect purple, bright blue and of course, our favourite multi-coloured rainbow bomzle at the end. Fairy Princess Sparkles jumped a little when it started – something about an incident the year before, but I wasn’t entirely sure what that was all about. She appeared to enjoy the display though and I heard her afterwards telling Rainbow how great it all was. Next on the program was the African Fairies Traditional Tribal Flight – it was truly amazing. They formation flew and created all different African animals in the sky. I saw a giraffe, an elephant, a cheetah and my most favourite was when they formed the shape of a wildebeest. Just amazing work! Stardust’s orchestra played tribal drum beats throughout their display and it created the most wonderful atmosphere.

Next came Seashell’s mermaids singing “Shimmer Shimmer Ocean Glimmer” with Mermaid Takumi doing a special duet harmony with Seashell. They sounded incredible, their voices really did give us happy goosebumps, just like Seashell said they would! Mermaid Takumi was very impressed with Fairy Floss’s sushi as well – I heard her asking Floss for her recipe a little later in the night (way to go Flossy!). Next came Petal’s dance routine. Just as it started, all the tulips, snapdragons and bluebells opened up and the thousands of fireflies that Petal had organised earlier, flew out and lit the stage as bright as Rainbow’s brightest bomzle! Petal led all the Fairy Princesses of Crystal Castle in a dance called “I’m Bringing Fairy Back”. I haven’t seen such a funky dance routine since Petal did her “Summer Flight” for the Fairies of Timberlake Lodge back in August of 2004. I was so proud of my Fairy Princesses. It was obvious that they all put a lot of time and effort into the routine and I heard the LA Fairies talking about some form of movie offer…. fingers crossed for them all.

We all had a bit of a dance then, and more of Fairy Floss’s delicious food. Crystal spilled one of the Flower Kebabs down the front of her snowflake dress and the icicles on it turned all different colours. She quicly raced off then saying she needed to get the finale ready anyway. About 10 minutes later, Stardust’s orchestra sounded their trumpets and we all turned to see what was happening. At just that moment, the Pegasuii from Crystal’s Starfleet Alliance Team burst into the sky. The zoomed in all directions, weaving in and out of each other. They got so close to one another and were so fast, we all gasped and I saw Snowflake put her hand over her eyes a few times. They flew down so low, that we could all feel the wind on our faces as they dashed past. The Alliance team formed a line and then wingtip to wingtip, dove one after the other as if they were diving into a swimming pool. They each zoomed down and then back up high again and did an enormous loop-the-loop, one after the other. Very daredevil I must say! Then, more of Rainbow’s bomzles as the pegasuii flew amongst them – and all of a sudden, Crystal appeared atop Pegasus Regali with an enormous torch fire in her hand which shot flames of multi coloured shooting stars across the night sky. As Crystal began to slowly twirl atop of Pegasus Regali her beautiful snow dress released tiny sparkly snow flakes that fell gently on top of all the Fairy folk. As each snow flake landed it exploded in to a tiny present for each of the Fairies and their friends to take home as a keepsake of their wonderous night. Finally Pegasus Regali flew past me and a tiny gold snowflake landed gently upon my head, leaving the most amazing Autumn Crown for me to wear. The Pegasus Alliance team zoomed through the night sky in a cloud of exploding Gold Bomzles and then disappeared into the dark night sky with the sounds of Fairy oohing and ahhing echoing far behind them. I then declared the night to be over and invited everyone back for a wonderous cup of marshmallow chocolate.

Such fabulous Fairy fun!

Talk to you all soon,
