Alice in Wonderland party snippet

Here a couple pics from Little Lyssa Hope’s birthday party last weekend. Overall it went really well, the kids had fun (my main goal achieved) and adults seemed to enjoy themselves too 🙂

Personalized Tea Cups for Tots

What better favor for an Alice in Wonderland tea party than your very own personalized teacup…this is what I told myself around 10 months ago and slowly started scouring for teacups that met my approval to match the theme. Finally luck was on my side and I found 3 packages of four tea cups, after realizing the number of children attending I had to find one more set but couldn’t find the pastel colors again so I went with red (I was thinking of the Queen of Hearts) and all in all…I am quite pleased with the results:

I used oil based Sharpies because all of the reviews and tutorials (and trust me I went through a LOT) said that they were the better and more permanent choice than the normal sharpies.
Put the mugs in the oven, THEN set it to bake at 350 degrees, once it warmed up to 350 degrees I set the timer for 30 minutes, once the timeframe has past I turned the oven off and let the mugs cool with the oven.

Here are the results:

I feel in LOVE with Alyssa’s mug as it also had a little white bunny on the inside

Eat Me

Here are our versions of the famous “Eat Me” cookie that makes Alice grow and grow and grow….hopefully these little delights do not have the same affect lol.

I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe (from the amazing people at Crisco)
After baking I cut out fondant using the same cookie cutter (makes the fondant the same shape as the cookie) then wrote the words and voila cookies for the little and big darlings alike.
