Wonderland


As promised, here are the photos from the Wonderland theme tea party I did for my 14 year old twins yesterday,

I made sure I made a little warning about the Drink me bubbles.

These are marshmallows. I used clear cellophane and printed Alice playing card tags and I tied it on each bag.



I used my 100 year old Alice books for elevation and drama. I also love the artificial deep red roses and the crystal candle lamp.
The plastic wine glasses really helped the event to be more sophisticated and all the kids enjoyed them. They felt so grown up and it really added to the fairy tale charm of the party.
I used our water glass bottle and filled it with Iced tea. I also dropped some raspberries and blueberries for added flavoring and style.
I made a 'Drink me' label and tied it with twine. Everybody loved it. I loved it!
They raised their glasses for a toast. Totally their idea. I felt like a gate crasher, crashing a very intimate party. My kids have a very old friendship with their friends. I'm so happy that they've found friends to treasure their whole life.

Here are my daughters while opening their presents.


Too bad, I wasn't able to take too many photos. It was kind of difficult to be doing everything on my own that day. I didn't even get to take a photo of all the butterfly decor all over the party area.

The impromptu games I came up with was such a big hit. Every game was Alice themed. The first game was, find the most cards. I scattered playing cards all over the backyard. Whoever gets the most, gets a prize and whoever finds Cheshire cat's picture gets a prize too. It was so much fun watching them lift every rock and went through every nook and cranny of our backyard.

We did those 3 x. That was how much they enjoyed it. So that meant 6 winners.

2nd game was pass the bunny. They had to pass around a stuffed bunny and when the music stops and they are holding the bunny, they are out. The one left behind wins. We did that 3x too!

We had other games and I ended up doing last minute additional presents. I bought things from the Japanese store which they enjoyed. I had to dig in for stuff I made which they enjoyed more than the wii accesories we bought for them.

All in all, it was a success. Each kid was thanking me as I walk past them. They said they loved everything specially the theme. My girls were so happy too, they kept hugging me and was even asking me to sleep in their bedroom because one of the twins couldn't take her arms around me.

By the way...

This little guy enjoyed the festivity so much. He loved all the dancing! And everyone loved his bow tie I especially made for him.
Too much dancing made him lose his other shoe but he kept dancing anyway. I just love this little guy!



And my friends who I rarely see nowadays came over too! Which made this party really special because I missed them so much.



Ooopsie, sorry about the messy living room, this was after the party and the kids took over the whole house the whole day. I will take better photos of my living room next time.

I watched 4 movies with my friends that night.
#1 Jeepers Creepers
#2 Obsessed
#3 Blue Lagoon
#4 Signs

We watched whatever was on tv that night.

So there you go. I hope you enjoyed these photos.

Wow thanks for the wonderful comment Erica! That means a lot,really!

I am so glad it turned out amazing even if I wasn't able to do some things as I originally planned. And not taking enough photos was kind of sad but everyone enjoyed the day and that's what really matters.

I was too busy with the event, the food etc that I didn't plan what the baby was going to wear but the bow tie I made last minute was perfect and a great conversation piece and he loved it so much.

Thanks again!
