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!
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!
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…
Don’t you know all that a group of kids need to have fun are some balloons?
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!
