Alice + The White Rabbit – Wonderland Birthday

Madison turned 5 eight days prior to Austin turning 1, so it was decided to hold a joint birthday bash together. It was very important for both of them to have a great bash that they could remember and one not outshining the other.  So, with really great characters and a wonderful plot, I would like to welcome you down the rabbit hole as we remember Alice & Wonderland.

This Wonderland birthday party was created using inspiration from the traditional movie. To set the tone, invitations were designed to create some sense of curiouser and curiouser.

Madison wore a traditional Alice costume, while Austin, the white rabbit, wore a handmade red vest and a vintage watch so that he wouldn’t be late.

Drink Me.
Vintage tea-stained tags were a playful way to continue to theme of the story.

Eat Me.
Fun apothecary jars filled with cookies and scones, along with assorted tea sandwiches, created an afternoon flare of tasty treats.

Guests enjoyed painting the roses red and traditional croquet with a twist of flamingos.

The seating of Wonderland was created with mismatched chairs surrounding a long table in the garden.  The table was topped with a vibrant purple base linen from Over The Top and was accented by a sheer polka dot linen from Elegant Beginnings. Each place setting was collection of mismatched teacups and saucers, while the centerpiece was highlighted by oversize vasesprovided by Darryl & Co, and accented with red roses.

Cake Affairs and Culinary Creations provided two cake designs: one for Madison, pure chocolate, and lots of it! Austin’s was a simple vanilla topsy-turvy masterpiece. Cupcakes embellished the Cheshire cat, the White Rabbit’s pocket watch, the Mad Hatter’s hat, and miniature mushrooms were served for the little ones and adults.

Each family received their very own Alice & Wonderland golden book. I hope they enjoy the adventure as much as we did.
