cyan in wonderland birthday party

Yesterday we held Cyan’s mad birthday tea party..

More on the party food and tiered vintage china cake stands here..

We had some fun Alice themed games and activities here..

See the invitations here.. stickers for favours here.. party bags and favours here..

















We even had a little caterpillar visitor who was happily munching on my mint.. if only he was blue..



The Eat Me birthday cake..







.. with a surprise inside! (and another surprise when you eat it – the blue marbled cake layer is mint flavoured and the red marbled cake layer is strawberry flavoured, the white icing square on top is also minty – unusual and very tasty!)



We made garlands from playing cards to decorate our yard..



And we had a couple of white rabbits to follow up to our front door as promised in the invitations.. I had planned to do full rabbit cutouts but I ran out of time, and my Mum kindly cut these out in the shape of the white rabbit pockets on the party bags (which she also helped me out on by sewing most of them), Cyan drew the faces on..



See our fun Alice themed games and activities here..

All in all it was a wonderful day, I myself enjoyed it immensely (despite only getting two hours sleep the night before – utter madness I know!), Cyan had the best day and informed me today she wants exactly the same party next year! (I’m sure she’ll change her mind a gazillion times before then) and I’m pretty sure all her friends had a blast. Once again huge thanks to my Mum and Karl without whose help I could not make any of this happen.

Sharing at some of the fabulous link parties in my sidebar, go check them out..

  2. OK, have you thought of a career as a party planner?

    That was such a well-thought out party, everything looks nice, and yummy. Great job!

  4. I adore the teacup dessert towers and the card garland was a brilliant idea. All the stuff is gorgeous. Makes me want to have one for my girls.

  5. That spread was amazing Anji! The tea cup towers and the Eat Me cake, gorgeous. Great idea that playing card garland. Cyan is the spitting image of the Alice we all know and love! Every detail is just perfect and I like the whimsical rabbit head cutouts. I can only imagine the days and days of work that went into this special day. Give yourself a pat on the back. Once again, you've outdone yourself!!!

  6. I am nearly speechless. Your tea party turned out beautifully, almost as gorgeous as that little girl of yours. Cyan really does make a picture perfect Alice. I'm with Michelle, the tea cup towers and Eat Me cake are just incredibly perfect in their perfection. Thanks so much for sharing!

  9. Everything's so fancy and whimsical and fun! How did you get your cucumbers to look like that? I want fancy cukes!

  10. Thank you all for the sweet comments :)

    To answer Megan's question about the cucumbers..
    I just bought the biggest fattest cucumber I could find.. then we sliced it, cut flower shapes with a small flower shape cookie cutter, and then cut the centres out with the round end of a piping nozzle (my kids won't eat the middle seed part for some reason?!). It sounds long-winded but they were quick to do :)

  11. I so wish it were socially acceptable for a 31 year old to have an Alice in Wonderland birthday party! You did such an amazing job!

  17. Gorgeous table, I'm so glad you linked up! I remember seeing those awesome invites before. I really like the stacked tea cup servers. My daughter has been obsessed with Alice lately.
