I asked the girls what type of theme they wanted for their birthday - they chose Alice in Wonderland, and I'm telling you, I couldn't be any more ecstatic! I was worried they'd chose Barbie Mermaidia (if you don't know what that is, consider yourself lucky), Tinkerbell, or Sleeping Beauty or some other sort of frilly frill pinky princess theme. Not that I mind frilly princesses, I'm just a wee bit tired of them.
And by choosing Alice, that means I get to pretty much make all of the decorations! I'm not 100 percent sure what all we're going to do, but Arlene has told me she wants a forest of trees and signs and Lydia wants a tea party. Done, done and done! We could also do playing-card croquet and I am going to figure out something to do with the Cheshire Cat. Oh my mind is just buzzing with ideas!
I have more than a couple weeks (their birthday is October 2) so I have time to plot and plan. Today, I made the party invitations, and I am soooo pleased with how they turned out! Here's some photos! (click to make larger)
