A Wonderful Wonderland Birthday!

Hello Friends! I'm back today with a Wonderland Tea Party! I told you we do birthdays big around here! I believe we brought "18" in with a bang! :)
I told you a little bit about how I love theme parties in THIS post and how my daughter had nixed all theme parties since she got older. I was so excited when she told me she wanted an Alice in Wonderland party for her 18th birthday!

Me & my imagination got to work. I started thrifting tea cups, saucers and unique glassware. I borrowed tea pots from my Mom (I'm lucky she collects them!) I figured out how I wanted everything to look in my head. Some things turned out that way, some didn't. Of course, isn't that how it always goes? :)

This was one of the things that didn't turn out like I imagined, but the kids liked it so it doesn't really matter. :) 

We had my daughter's party in the local National Forest. It has a big picnic area and this time of year it's not very crowded. It was the perfect place for our "Wonderland."

I served tea (of course!) put some Mt. Dew in a couple of the teapots and had little tea sandwiches. I wish I had gotten a better picture of the table :(  
Some of my daughter's favorite "Aliceisms" were placed all around. I just nailed this one to the tree...I'm fancy like that! Ha ha :)
 This little "Aliceism" was place on the table. I thrifted that frame for $ .50...I thought it looked very Alice in Wonderland. :)
We also had a candy bar, which was a hit. I mean, seriously, who doesn't love candy? :)
We also had three different types of cupcakes, chocolate, vanilla and my daughter's favorite, red velvet. I love making cupcakes, really. It makes me happy that people like them! :)
We had a photo booth. We took lots of silly pictures, it was a lot of fun!

This is one of my real life BFFs Lori! She loved the photo booth almost as much as the kids! :) 
All and all it was a great day and a really fun Wonderland Party!
Happy 18th Birthday my wonderful daughter :)
