Curiouser and Curiouser.

 Last weekend we all took a trip down the rabbit hole for Erin's Wonderland Birthday Party!  I still can't believe she is 8 years old.  Time sure does fly!  I enjoyed every minute of the planning for this party.  As most of you know, I am a huge Alice fan.  I was thrilled when she told me that Wonderland was the theme she wanted to go with.
I printed out the invitations and rolled them, putting the small scroll into glass jars.  I added Read Me labels to get the true Wonderland feel.  The kids loved them!
I made 2 houses of cards and  banners of cards to serve as decorations.

After all of the girls arrived, we sat down to dinner.  The menu consisted of cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches, Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, & Couscous salad.

                        To drink, the girls sipped on red punch.  Of course they were labeled  "Drink Me."

                                             Even the older girls couldn't resist the label!

                                    After dinner, Erin and the girls Painted the Roses Red!!

                                             Then it was "Pin the Grin on the Cheshire Cat"

A Wonderland Party wouldn't be right without a Tea Party!!!  The girls all sat down to Tea, "Eat Me" Cookies and Chocolate Hearts!!  Yum!!

My gift to the Birthday Girl!!  A Happy Birthday Tea Cup.

While at Tea, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum hid all of Erin's Birthday presents!!  So...all the girls went on the search for them.  As they found each gift, Erin was to open it wear ever it lies.

After all the presents were found, it was time for cupcakes and ice cream. And of course to sing HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

                                                                  Tea Party Lovelies!!
       And.... at the end of the night all the girls sat down to watch..what? .... Alice in Wonderland!!

It was a great time and the girls had so much fun.  They each went home with a "White Rabbit" made of white chocolate with a "Key" to the "Beautiful Garden" and an Alice in Wonderland Coloring Book.
The back of the favor.
