Ariel In Wonderland

I’m constantly amazed by the creativity exhibited by you fabulous party people! This Ariel in Wonderland party is just about the most creative, whimsical, and transforming birthday party I’ve seen. I think Lewis Carroll would have been proud.
The amazing talent behind this birthday party is Kelli Britt.  She loves to develop parties and paper goods, but hasn’t taken the “next step” towards doing it professionally.  Uh, Kelli, I think you got it girl…Just Do It! ; ) 
Kelli’s husband made the most amazing arbor above the table, from old branches found on their property.  He also built the planter boxes for the centerpieces which hold wheat grass, feathers, playing cards, and flowers.   Kelli hung a multitude of lanterns, butterflies, and flowers from the arbor, and situated her daughter’s doll house in the center of the table to hold cupcakes, cookies, and an “Alice” doll.  She also made “Mad Hatter” hats to hold the name cards – I love the checker board pattern used here and on the table cloths.  The whimsical graphic designs she created for all the signage is another testament to her talent.
More of this fantastical design is found on a side dessert table.  Story icons like “eat me”, and “drink me” tags, as well as keys and favorite quotes from the book can be seen throughout the decor.  Bright patterned fabrics and ribbon are the perfect anchor for it all.
  Thanks so much for sharing this incredible party with us, Kelli!  No doubt it will inspire others.
