Party Idea #1

So...My kid will be 10 years old in less than a month.
That is serious business...double digits!!!
So I want to throw her a beautiful party.
I am going to blog a few different ideas and
I would love to hear some feedback/suggestions from
all of you. She's decided she wants to just have a small
family party this year so it will be fun without
all the crazy hooplah of a large party.
Sweet :)

My first idea is an Alice in Wonderland Bash
I was thinking mad tea hatter hats for everyone.
Tea party decor, but in bright fun colors.
Crazy smiley faces, cupcakes, fancy dresses...
I could go on and on!!!

me I would LOVE to hear them!

I'm all about Alice in Wonderland, even more lately, and can't wait to see the new movie.

This is such a great post, so inspirational, makes me want to throw a mad tea party, thank you for featuring my hat in it as well.

Have a wonderful weekend!
P.S. Happy 10th birthday too!
Lisa!

I was trying to think of some helpful ideas. One being oversized playing cards, you could actually find a deck of cards, scan them and print them on stock paper. Another idea i was thinking was find Xmas Led lights on ebay, they are usually only about 5 dollars and you can find lots of colors to add a bit more whimsical vibe to the entire event.

I love the Alice in Wonderland theme!

The King of Hearts Garland, and Lot's o Alice Cuppies are my favorite! Dan's idea of oversized playing cards is perfect! You could dress up as the queen of hearts! A crazy tea party could be so fun. Do you have a dog? Dress him up as the Cheshire Cat! "Drink Me" tags on drinking glasses.

Found these after doing a quick search:

Creating a party theme is not that difficult, and one should never get too worried about overdoing it since achieving the right atmosphere is of great importance if you are planning a party that shall be an event to remember.
