PARTY DETAILS from Tabitha…

“We had a ‘studio’ space set up full of tutu’s and dress up clothes, fun hats that we found at local thrift shops and adorned with flowers and feathers we hot glued on.  They stepped out into Wonderland where there were bunnies and cotton candy, a bounce house, Alice was there to paint little faces and in the midst of it all a long table of pink with fun tea pots peppered throughout and paper lanterns and handmade tissue paper flowers hanging in the sky above.

The main table centerpiece was a stack of tea cups that we found at a thrift store, I spray painted them pink and white and then hot glued them into a whimsical stack. I used a small half circle of foam to hold the flowers in the top cup.

For the tea party, there were of course cookies with Eat Me piped on the top, we designed and printed little tags that said Drink Me and attached with ribbons to the girl’s tea cups (all found at thrift stores and the girls took them home) and to the potion bottles for the boys.  We served little lunch bags, each one having a personalized name tag (that matched our other tags), and in them were PB&J sandwiches cut with large cookie cutters into the shape of a flower or a butterfly.

We also made bunting by cutting matching fabric and hot gluing it to twine to give a little bit of a sweet tea vibe.

Along with the invitations that we designed, we sent out a small skeleton key to each child attached with twine to a small tag with their name on it and wording telling them to bring the key with them to unlock a treasure. (And then at the party we drew their names from a small chest and the were able to dig through a treasure chest to choose a prize to take home.)

To help take away from the plain yellow school chairs, we finished the back with a mix of ribbons, lace and strips of cut fabric and topped it off with extra decorative flowers we had left over from making the table centerpieces. It took the chairs from plain to dramatic!”
