Like most girls, Alice in Wonderland has always been a story that captured my imagination. That's why I was so excited to design some Alice in Wonderland Party Favors for my customer, Traci. They couldn't have turned out any sweeter!
I fell in love with these little heart tins because of their raised lace-like design and have been holding on to them for just the right occasion. And, they were so perfect for the Alice in Wonderland Baby Shower that Traci was planning. Being the just the right size for little treats, they look absolutely precious with "Eat Me" embellishments.
Traci wanted one of the favors to be a keepsake for the soon-to-arrive baby, Teghan Olivia. The baby's nursery is decorated in pink butterflies, so Traci wanted the baby's favor to be specially adorned with butterflies. Such a fabulous idea!
On the same day I shipped these favors, one of my fans on Facebook, Anna of Evie George Cakes, asked if I could share any ideas for an Alice in Wonderland Party she's planning - how serendipitous! It was my pleasure to share all of the Alice in Wonderland Party Ideas I've handpicked from around the web over the last few years, which you might enjoy seeing, as well.

I recently had the pleasure of helping with this eye-catching Cat in the Hat 1st Birthday Party for Dre'lon planned by Angel of AG Events & Consulting in Houston, TX. All of the wonderful party photos are by Rochelle Scott Design.
"Decorating for kids' parties is a passion for me," beams Angel. "I LOVE to see their faces when they see what I have created for their SPECIAL DAY!" All of the fantastic details at this party show what a pro Angel is!
Belly Feathers designed Candy Buffet Signs for the candy jars and cake pop, lollipop, and cookie displays. I just think these candy jars look perfect!
I also designed the Thing 1 and Thing 2 Food Label Tent Cards for the candy table. Check out the Cupcakes card!
The darling Thing 1 and Thing 2 cake pops below were created by
All of the adorable cookies were made by Rollin' in Dough. You can seem more pictures of these Cat in the Hat cookies and get some great tips on how they were decorated on the Rollin' in Dough blog.
"The cookies were Almond Butter flavor and really tasty," states Angel.
It was my pleasure to design "Happy Birthday Dre'lon" Cat in the Hat Stickers to go on the lollipops, too.
Even the candy popcorn was in color scheme, and the sodas had personalized labels to match the them! Again, I love Angel's eye for detail!
The Hat-shaped Cat in the Hat Cake Pops on the left were created by Kreative Candies by Kim. So cute!
The Cat in the Hat Birthday Cake looks INCREDIBLE!!
How Sweet It Is Bakery really out did themselves on this amazing design, and best of all, it tasted as good as it looks.
"Having a slice of that cake was a DELIGHT! It was moist and very good," says Angel.
I love the simple backdrop behind the cake that spells out the birthday boy's name!
Doesn't the party space look festive?! Angel layered white and blue plastic table covers on the guest tables, which I think is such a great tip. It really adds an extra level of polish to the room.
Angel also created lots of fun centerpieces for the room using Cat in the Hat plush toys. Using toys is a great way tie in the theme for kids.
This Cat in the Hat centerpiece in particular is so creative with the goldfish swimming around. What a great way to add this part of the book into the party!! (I told you Angel was good with details.)
The Cat in the Hat Party Banner I designed for Dre'lon's birthday is a nice touch on the party favor table.
Here's a close-up shot of the banner. I added Thing 1 on one side of Dre'lon's name and Thing 2 on the other.
These Cat in the Hat paper party hats were a really special touch, too! It looks like the kids really enjoyed wearing them.
"I loved the Cat In The Hat's performance," shares Angel. "His voice and show with the kids was AMAZING!!! It really was entertaining and they had so much FUN! " The performer was hired from Kids Party Experts in Houston, TX.
Here a few more shots from Dre'lon's fabulous 1st birthday party...
If you're planning a party in the Houston-area, definitely give Angel of AG Events & Consulting a call!
Angel, thanks so much for hiring me to design some special touches for this fantastic party! You're amazing, and I can't wait to work together again. Happy Birthday to this sweet little guy, too!
