Party Recap

I wanted to give my daughter a beautiful, mostly homemade, Alice in Wonderland party. It isn't over- the- top but there are tons of details and special touches. I like all things DIY! For me, that is what makes an event memorable.


Party Highlights

  • Best Dressed

    Gwenna (the birthday girl) of course.

  • Desserts

    Vanilla Fondant cake with lemon curd filling. Made by Grandma

  • Activities / Games

    The kids made "shrinky dink" Alice necklaces, played a relay race "painting the roses red" and "move down" and croquet.

  • Budget


  • Party Favors

    Home made "Take One" toy bags filled with: daisy grow kits, Alice in Wonderland book, necklace, and rabbit crackers.

  • Best Moment

    Two of the youngest guests sat at the small table with the canopy and played tea party together while they ate.

  • What People Ate

    Brunch foods: egg casserole, fruit tarts, cheeses, stuffed mushrooms, peanut butter sandwiches, turkey and cheese sandwiches, dumplings...

    Thank you! Her dress was made by a nice lady on etsy.com I believe her shop is my three little gnomes. I wanted something that suggested Alice but wasn't a costume. Thanks again!
