Avery and I really enjoyed coming up with this Alice in Wonderland themed party for her 5th birthday! She’s in love with all things Disney, and I love the sweet whimsy of this movie, so it was the perfect theme.
The beautiful cake was by Claire’s Cute Cakes. It’s was simple, beautiful and delicious with it’s vanilla cake, lemon curd filling and pink vanilla buttercream. I prefer simple classic cakes to character cakes, so this was perfect. She also crafted the adorable fondant white rabbit ears for the cupcakes, though I baked and frosted them myself because I wanted to try my hand at some gluten-free baking (I’ve been gluten-free since November for health reasons).
The amazing cookies were made by Marinold Cakes. I had seen her work at a party I photographed last year and knew she was the one for the job! They turned out exactly as I had pictured. So lovely! Avery thought that all the kids would be hesitant to try the cookies because they looked just like the real ones from the movie and they might shrink or grow if they ate them!
My friend Stephanie from Life Created handmade the huge tissue paper flowers, reminiscent of the singing flowers which tower over tiny Alice in the movie. She’s such a talented lady!
The milk glass cake plates are from The TomKat Studio. They seriously have all the best party stuff. I also got the hanging lanterns and honeycomb tissue balls from them, to emulate all the colorful lanterns which hang over the Mad Tea Party ride at Disneyland. I love how it turned out, especially with the different colors of ribbons hanging down.
The hat from The Mini Top Hat Boutique also adds a super fun Mad Hatter element. The antique teapot and tea cups provided the finishing touch, as well as the sign post made by my mom and I.
I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoyed the party!
