The very first EVENT!!!

This is my very first blog post. A perfect way to start the "first" is with a first birthday. The birthday girl is my little bubba Bowie. The theme of the party was based on the whimsical tale by Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland, with a twist- "Bowies in ONEderland".
The setting of the party was a home afternoon tea party with a red, blue and pink colour palette.

 The invitation- home made by me with supplies sourced from Etsy.

Table setting- a combination of tea cups, fresh red roses, large playing cards and tissue pom poms
The cake- simple toadstool made by me
The food & Drinks- all the food followed the theme in every way, from tea party cupcakes and tea cup cookies, heart shape sandwiches, Turkish delight rolls representing the caterpillars pipe and Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum Sliders. For beverages a selection of teas were served allow with strawberry milkshakes.






The well known scene from the films and of course the book where Alice grows and shrinks from the "eat me" and "drink me" was recreated with printable labels purchased by the fabulous Tom Kat Studios.
The party favors were a tea cup cookie for each guest to take home created by the wonderful Cookie Creations.
