For Scarletts first birthday we went with an Alice in “One” Derland theme. Being that Scarlett has a very fiesty attitude, she played the role of the red queen!
The invitations were purchased on Etsy from Sweet Bea Tea Boutique and they customized it to add a photograph to the back. The Queen of Hearts tutu dress was purchased from Personal G Creation on Etsy!
Our backyard was covered in Jumbo size playing cards, Clock cut-outs and bright colored decor and flowers. I hung things from every rail of our deck and tree branches around our home.
I got large foam cut outs from a PROPer Party on Etsy of different characters from the movie and used them in various areas of the yard. The tweedle dee and tweedle dum photo prop cut outs were a favorite amongst the parents and kids.
Along with balloons, I had bright Accordian top hats that looked like Mad Hatter’s at every table purchased from Oriental Trading.
We had a bit of a mishap with our cake, so I threw this dessert table together in less than 4 hours. Not too bad eh? Eat me tags were everywhere along with delicious sugar cookies that read the same.
To keep the kids entertained we brought in a petting zoo with some animals representing characters in the movie.
We also had face painting, balloon deisgns and a bounce house. Our swing set got a ton of use as well.
For some DIY stress, I created the Flamingo Croquet! It was a bit tideous drilling through the plastic flamingos, but the outcome was well worth it. I purchased a basic croquet set off of Amazon and got the flamingos from Lowes.
For party favors all of the kids took home a copy of the Alice in Wonderland book and a lollipop that both had tags reading “Take Me”
As I’ve mentioned before, I love to give out things that families will actually use or eat from all of our events!
Sharing the parties I host is one of my favorite things to blog about, because I really enjoy the planning process. I hope you all enjoy the details as much as I do!
