I turned 30 this year and decided to do things right so I had an Alice in Wonderland party.
For decorations I used a red, black and light blue theme. I made garlands out of playing cards I got at the dollar store, had 60 helium balloons and printed out Alice clip art from the internet onto cardstock.
I originally wanted people to drink from the mismatched teacups that I bought at the Value Village but in the end I used them to hold candy. Old teapots held my painted red roses. There were doilies everywhere!
I asked my guests to dress up or wear a funny hat. Most did but for those who "forgot". I had hats waiting for them at the front door. I was Alice. There was also a Queen of Hearts, a Cheshire hat, a white Rabbit and a really funny Tweedle Dee and Dum.
I had planned on croquet but it rained the entire day.
The best part of the party was the rented cotton candy machine. Everyone had fun making it. The candy was blue so it matched perfectly... I can't wait for Halloween.
