Last year, my little girl asked for an Alice in Wonderland birthday party. But my then, four-year olds birthday fell at the end of the year. And I could not throw the same Alice in Wonderland party that I had seen over and over on the blogosphere. Though I loved them all, I like to be original. So I decided it would be an Alice in wonderland party with a twist. An evil twist, that is. I kept picturing my sweet little one yelling, “Off with her Head!” And that is exactly what the invitations read.
We would throw a Queen of Hearts birthday party. One with painted white roses & red hearts,led by a tiny queen.
Here is the invitations designed by me. It was tiny and meant to look like a playing card. Included, in the envelope, was a magnifying glass for the teensy print.
I also made a little flip book a la Color Me Katie.
I made these hats using the original Adventures in Wonderland illustrations with some added diagonal stripes.
I designed the birthday banner in effort to take it easy. I was almost 7 months pregnant with my little boy. They ended up being so easy that my four-year old helped putting them together. I loved that I they could stand up on their own without needing to be hung up. This was perfect for an outdoor setting.

It is officially one month or so before my young daughter’s 6th birthday. This year she wants a unicorn party. The fun begins all over again!
