To help take away from the plain yellow school chairs, we finished the back with a mix of ribbons, lace and strips of cut fabric and topped it off with extra decorative flowers we had left over from making the table centerpieces. It took the chairs from plain to dramatic!”
Aliyah In Wonderland Party
January 9, 2011 by 16 Comments
Today’s gorgeous party feature was sent in by Tabitha of Fresh Mommy blog, and is full of ideas and inspiration for your next “Alice in Wonderland” inspired party. I always love sophisticated details in children’s parties and this one has that with its eclectic mix of teacups & saucers, and it’s floral centerpieces. Lot’s of whimsy is added with the hanging lanterns & poms, and the ribbon adorned chairs…
Here is what Tabitha said about the party and some of the DIY details:
“We threw a , ! It was full of fun, pink DIY details and we tried to add in some whimsy as well. We had a “studio” space set up full of tutu’s and dress up clothes, fun hats that we found at local thrift shops and adorned with flowers and feathers we hot glued on… and then they stepped out into Wonderland where there were bunnies and cotton candy, a bounce house, Alice was there to paint little faces and in the midst of it all a long table of pink with fun tea pots peppered throughout and paper lanterns and handmade tissue paper flowers hanging in the sky above.
The main table centerpiece was a stack of tea cups that we found at a thrift store, I spray painted them pink and white and then hot glued them into a whimsical stack. I used a small half circle of foam to hold the flowers in the top cup.
We also made bunting by cutting matching fabric and hot gluing it to twine to give a little bit of a sweet tea vibe.
Along with the invitations that we designed, we sent out a small skeleton key to each child attached with twine to a small tag with their name on it and wording telling them to bring the key with them to unlock a treasure.
Thanks for sharing all the fabulous details with us Tabitha. The party is just magical!
