Three months ago, my sweet baby girl turned ONE! She is such a joy and full of life, so throwing a ONEderful celebration in her honor was a must.
As an event planner, I believe first birthdays are so special and fun, and as a mother it was important to make sure my daughter's was just that. When thinking of Cassidy's interests and personality, Alice in Wonderland became the inspiration for the "Cassidy in ONEderland" party. The theme embodied the playful and cutesy atmosphere that truly represented my little princess. For decor, I went with a pink and blue color scheme, and incorporated tea pots and cups, mini tree topiaries with birds, stuffed animals, books, fresh flowers, girly accents and framed photos of the birthday girl. The finished look was totally Cassidy's own ONEderland!
To ensure the party was enjoyable for the kids as well as their parents, we had entertainment and activities to include: caricature artist, face painting, hat decorating at our Mad Hatter's Hat Shop, photo station, and toys galore. As an added treat, we had a visit from Alice herself along with the White Rabbit, who took the kids on a pretend journey to Wonderland with balloon twisting along the way! No Alice in Wonderland themed event is complete without TEA! The kids had lots of fun serving and pretending to drink tea with our assortment of children's tea pots and cups. To let the adults in on the tea party fun, we had a hot tea station with a variety of Disney's Alice in Wonderland tea flavors, as well as delicious iced tea mixed with lemonade. These were the perfect refreshments to go along with our tea sandwiches, Mad Hatter salad, ONEderland nuggets and fries and other munchies on the buffet.
The sweet ending after all the food and fun was the delicious birthday cake, cupcakes, cookies and goodie bags! My baby girl, family and friends had a ONEderful time in ONEderland, which made me one happy Mama! A special thanks to our family and all the vendors, who helped make this party sensational!
