alice in wonderland (the real people) are all the rage in this house and since i was terribly late sending out invites (see below) the girls had a very late and “unbirthday” party. guests were asked to wear their best mad hatter hat and to bring their bathing suits.
after searching online for alice themed or inspired party ideas i found this website: the long thread. there were so many great ideas and images i quickly realized this party would be a breeze!
menu: we had peanut butter and jelly heart-shaped sandwiches, croissants filled with chicken and cranberry salad, build-your-own sandwiches, fruit, and vegetables. our french neighbors brought the most delicious patisseries from ôpera in san diego. our good friends from los angeles provided the yummiest chocolate mousse and raspberry cake in the world!
activities: the kids made their own foam crowns from supplies from joann’s and michaels. they also had fun “painting the roses red.”
party favors: yvette found these delicious edible tea cups from the disney site that we used as party favors. of course there were ‘eat me’ and ‘drink me’ labels on everything. i used the harrington font provided by the macbook. the girls were allowed to pick their own balloons from party city (mental note: don’t ever do this again!).
