Alice in Wonderland Tea Party

Birth9

I am so excited to share pictures from Estella’s Alice in Wonderland 5th birthday Tea Party! I always wanted to have a tea party for one of her birthday parties and it was perfect this year because I wanted to keep it small and the girls were a little older to enjoy it. It was made even better when Estella’s best friend from back home Emerson was able to join and I was able to continue the tradition of decorating with her mom Amanda.

This party was too fun to plan!

Enjoy

Her birthday cake was inspired by the cake in the Alice in Wonderland movie.

When the girls arrived to the tea party, they had to find their seat, put on their mad hatter hats and drink the magic potion which made them big!

Mad Hatter Mini Top Hat Tutorial

ehat11

Last weekend we celebrated Estella’s 5th birthday with an Alice in Wonderland themed tea party. A lover of tea parties since birth, Estella and I started watching the original Alice in Wonderland movie to get some ideas for her party. Since we were only having 4 girls at the party, I figured I could make them fancy mad hatter hats myself and I love how they turned out. These hats are so easy to make  and cost so little!

Materials:

Stiff Felt Sheets- Any craft store should have them

Headband- I bought mine at Dollar Tree. I like metal with satin cover.

Hot Glue Gun

Anything you want to decorate it with. I used left over tulle, feathers, paper flowers, metal keys and butterflies

First- Cut out your pieces. You need 2 circles and one long rectangle. The larger circle which will be the base of your hat will measure 4 inches, the smaller circle which will be the top measures 2.5 inches and the rectangle is 9×3 inches.

I used my silhouette cameo to cut the pieces because its pretty much the best thing ever but this is easily done without it.

Step 2. Build the Hat.

Take your rectangle and rub it back and forth on the edge of the table, this will make it easier to bend out smooth.

Using the smaller circle as a size guide, Roll the rectangle into a circle the same size as the small circle then hot glue the edges together.

Glue along the top ledge of your roll and place the small circle on top. Hold down until dried. Make sure there are no holes.

Step 3- Attach the Large circle to the headband. Before attaching the large circle to the hat, fold large circle in half and make two slits about an inch apart in the middle. This will allow you to slide the headband through and then hot glue the base to the headband.  I found it holds best when you hot glue your headband where the headband goes over the felt.

Next you want to attached the base of the hat to the top. Simply run a thin layer of glue to the bottom of the hat and press onto base. I pressed mine down until dry to make sure it would hold all the decorations.

Last step is the best step!! DECORATE!

You can add whatever you want to go along with the theme of your party. Since we were having an Alice in Wonderland tea party I added tulle, feathers, flowers, butterflies and metal keys I found at Hobby Lobby. I tried to match the hats to the girls personalities and dresses I knew they would be wearing to the party. The best part? THEY LOVED THEM and they can wear them for dress up too!

I hope you enjoy making these as much as I did! I will be doing a post hopefully next week on the rest of her party!

Winter ONEderland Birthday

Winter2

Last month I was asked to plan a birthday party for a darling little girl’s first birthday and we chose a Winter Onederland theme. Being a mommy to a toddler who is all about superheros and hello kitty, I couldn’t wait to plan a more whimsical party with a white, pale pink and light teal palette. While my client told me to do my thing, we did agree that there needed to be lots of snowflakes, a beautiful first birthday outfit and a hot chocolate bar.

This party was just too fun to put together!

I added lights behind the curtain and table which looked so magical.

I absolutely loved the paper snowflakes purchased off of amazon.

Using my silhouette, I made a snowflake banner and the food cards. If you don’t have a cameo, I would highly suggest buying one!

Winter9

I made a high chair tulle skirt using the same no-sew method I used on Estella’s Halloween tutu.

Winter3

Desserts included a doughnut hole tree, smash cake, snowflake cookies, chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with chocolate snowflakes on top, Oreo cake pops and white chocolate covered pretzels.

To make the large chocolate snowflake on the smash cake and small one for the cupcake toppers, I placed a print out of snowflakes under wax paper and piped melted chocolate on the wax paper and then sprinkled sanded sugar on top.

For the favors I put hot chocolate mix along with mini marshmallows in small baby food jars with a “Thank you snow much” label.

Mermaid 2nd Birthday Party.

Estella is obsessed with mermaids and asked for a mermaid party for her 2nd birthday (proud mommy here). So I got to work on all things mermaid and it turned out great!

I made a banner shaped like seashells to hang above the dessert table and added clear balloons that looked like bubbles.

For Estella’s first birthday I bought this antique high chair and paint it every year to fit the new theme.

The sand dollar cookies were too easy to make! Since I had so much baking to do for the party I just bought pre-made cookie dough (gasp) and added already slivered almonds onto the cookies before baking.

For the mermaid cupcake tails printed of a mermaid tail outline and put a piece of wax paper on top of it. I then took melted Wilton Chocolate into a decorating bag and simply filled in the picture on the wax paper. After dried, they just popped off and I slid them into slits I made in the cupcakes. For the clams, I bought cookies at the grocery store, iced the inside with icing, used a little melted chocolate to hold the cookies open and placed a white round chocolate inside to look like a pearl.

I always like to make Estella a smash cake for her birthdays. This one I did ombre pink and added crushed graham crackers to look like sand.

The mermaid pearls were my favorite thing to make for the party. I simply made cake balls (so excited I didn’t have to put them on a stick this time) and dunked them in melted Wilton Chocolate. In order to make them look like pearls, after the chocolate dried I sprayed them with Pearl Luster Spray. It gives this beautiful effect and truly looked like pearls! This product was kind of hard to find! I found that you can order them online or at a specialty baking store.

The most exciting thing about this 2nd birthday was the fact that Estella could blow out her own candles! (tear)

Estella is One!

How do I have a one year old? How did the first year fly-by so fast? We have a little person with her own personality in our house. I can’t believe she is one. She loved her unicorn and fairy party.
