It has taken me 3 days to sort through all the photos from the party. So here we go...
The afternoon started with guests being lead to our house with little signs that Brett had made up. There was a few arrows at the roundabouts, and a big arrow on our footpath pointing to "The Rabbit Hole". We put this one on the path to the front door, just in case someone decided to enter via that way.
The White Rabbit and the Queen of Hearts spent the morning building the rabbit hole. And what a HIT it was with the kids.
The guests were greeted by the White Rabbit telling them they were "late" and to go through the rabbit hole. And I had a little giggle when I heard him directing them in a British accent. Too funny! And the card soldiers formed a barricade making sure everyone who attended were up to scratch.
The White Rabbit
(missing his large pocket watch here, hence the really weird looking chain around his belly!)
The Card Soldiers.
Our gorgeous Cheshire Cat.
She fell asleep in a guests mama's arms mid party - typical cat I guess!
The best family photo we could get.
We weren't ready, and Oliver clearly didn't want to wear his tie
(he and his little mate were tweedle dee and tweedle dum).
He took his pants off not long after this too.
After we played some games, including "What's the Time Mr Rabbit" and croquet & chess, the Mad Hatter served tea and sandwiches.
And then there was dessert.
The Cake. :)
I love that my boys were fighting over who was closer for the kiss.
They all wanted it! :)
And Lucy's guests took home their tea cups and saucers, as well as this little goody bag.
See the White Rabbit pendant and chain hanging from the box?
The party was LOADS of fun. I highly recommend a "Tea Party" for your daughter. Whether you do it as a Wonderland party, or just an elegant afternoon tea, the girls LOVED drinking tea (apple juice) from their tea cups.
Surprisingly, the boys thoroughly enjoyed it.
Joshua asked me the next day if we could have a "SuperHero Tea Party" for his birthday.
I can't see why not!
It was a great day.
