a very merry unbirthday birthday...

the wonton turned three last friday, and this year it was decided that kennedy would have an alice in wonderland themed birthday tea party. the big shindig went down over the weekend,  kennedy and her friends had a blast! and i think some of the parents did too...

 wooden signs we posted at the entrances of our development to help parents and kiddos find their way to the party 

the pièce de résistance... i made garland from fabric scraps and lanterns from tissue paper and added tea cups purchased at a thrift store to make a chandelier that hung above the tables where guests were seated

the party started in the am, so guests indulged in various goodies, including a cereal bar, scones, muffins, doughnut holes, and macarons

i purchased a digital file of printables from an etsy shop that featured various wonderland characters. included were these cupcake toppers

for the centerpieces, i used vintage books, clocks, and mis-matched tea cups and saucers

 the birthday girl!

 as guests were leaving they got to fill treat bags with goodies at the candy bar - sidenote*  i gave fair warning to parents about the enormous amount of sugar that would be offered!
