Mad Hatter Tea Party

Last year I threw a GiANT Birthday party for my daughters 1st B-Day and I swore I wouldn’t go that big again. But here we are, a year later, and I did it again.

It all started with a simple question. “Tylyn, what do you want to do for your Birthday?” To which I got an immediate and enthusiastic, “Have A Tea Party!!!”

And with that simple, over stated, excited reply, I could no longer help myself!

Soon Tylyn’s Mad Hatter Tea Party was born. I planned it for about a month, collecting cheap decor from orientaltrading.com and making my own as well. I decided on the red and black color scheme of “The Queen f Hearts” but added in hott pink and gold to make it my own!

I designed her invitations in care of the color scheme, patterning, wording and whimsy that I wanted the party to convey.

With my collection of goodies, guest invited and grocery shopping done we were ready for the party!

Then snow started falling. And it snowed and snowed and snowed until all things were canceled for 4 days on end. Including Tylyn’s party. Tear. We pushed it back a week and it worked out just as well except the fact that my determination started to wane.

Saturday night I got the my Husbands gym (where we had the party) and started setting up. The results were Madly Wonderful Indeed!

Was that too many pictures? Sorry 😚

And then there was the birthday girl… I ordered her dress from http://www.theglamourbaby.com because it was amazing and it reminded me of Alice from Alice in Wonderland. Sadly my now 2 year old doesn’t love getting her picture taken but I mangaged to get a few…

When it was all said and done all I cared is that the kids had fun. And they did!

Thank you friends and family for making a lot of fun memories together!
