My daughter Ellie asked for an Alice in Wonderland party and the party planner in me burst! Haha! This theme is so much fun and there is so much joy in going all out! To start, I knew I wanted to set the dessert table as a tea party tablescape. Chargers, plates, silverware, cups, chairs as the end caps. The plates became the serving trays for the cookies. I also had a candelabra, vintage clock, white bunny and a tea pot as vases, bite size treats, macarons, "eat me" and "drink me" tags...all the things you would imagine at a Wonderland Tea Party. For the backdrop, I wanted a color block balloon garland in the main colors of the party. Play cards were hung on clear fishing line and dripping down from the red balloons! A fun DIY was making the "talking flowers"! I used paper plates as their face and tissue paper fans as the flower petals. I hand cut some eye brows and created the faces with circle paper punches to make them look like they are singing! The kids table was also set as a tea party and had macarons and mini eclairs, as well as heart shaped watermelon for the Queen of Hearts, of course! The cake by Charm City Cakes West was the highlight and centerpiece of the party! Every layer had amazing details. The beautiful sugar cookies by Cafe Everyday Sunday were as much for decoration as they were for a tasty treat!! These cookies really brought this party to life! We had a balloon artist, 2 bounce houses and a tea pot piñata!
