An Alice In Wonderland Themed Birthday Party. Yes, this past weekend, we were invited to a 3 year little girl’s birthday party (one of Lily’s dance classmates) that had this exact theme. Adorable and quite whimsical was the thoughts that came to my mind when I first heard about this and then I saw this invite,which confirmed this to me.
Now, most who read my blog, know I have two little girls and for each of their own birthday parties, we have had many themes over the course of their short little lives.
Awhile back I shared pictures of the cakes, (I will re-share here today for those who missed out the first time) I made with the help of my own wonderful brother, who works at AC Moore. I have been lucky enough to get cake molds and decorating kits from this association with his employee discount. He also has been so generous and wonderful to help with the cake decorating, because these cakes came out fabulous, but would have needed more than two hands for these creations. Thus, thank god for his two hands indeed!
The cake is definitely only a small part of a party, but does help if you are having a certain theme. With little kids, it truly is all about kid’s characters, such as Mickey Mouse.
Up until this year, I did most of the planning by just asking my kids what character they would like and running with it. But now many know that Emma has come into her own and realized that birthdays are for getting presents and if you missed our tale about the birthday fairy, click here.
So, I am sure I have my work cut out for me with Emma, in particular, come this July. I have yet to ask what character yet, but am sure I will be in for it when I do.
Thank god, I still have Lily, who I sincerely hope to god in November will be less of a Ms. BossyPants about this, but something tells that Ms. Go Big or Go Home, will also give me a run for my money on what kind of cake she wants.
And then you have Kevin, who very simply asks, “Why can’t we just have Carvel Ice Cream Cake?”
Oh the joys of birthdays with my gang!!
