A Very Merry UnBirthday Party

 Posie  turned 7 this year and to celebrate we threw her
a Very Merry UnBirthday party!
Guests were greeted by a Cast of Characters that included: a favorite friend (as Alice), Mommy  (Queen of Hearts), Daddy (the Mad Hatter), her twin brothers were Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum (of course), Bean (formerly known as little sister) was herself with a tiny Mad Hatter hat and Pixie (formerly known as Cutie Pie) was the boss of everyone!

Entertainment


The children played our version of croquet, had a Scavenger Hunt for the Rabbit’s Pocket Watch, and had fun breaking a Cheshire Cat Pinata while the Queen of Hearts looked on and shouted, “Off with it’s head!”

Taking lines from the book the party was set with a large table outside the front door of the house.  The tablescape included objects and characters from the book.

The Cake

For most kids the most important part of any birthday party is the cake.  As such I didn’t want the cake to disappoint. I wanted it to be whimsical and fun. I wanted to incorporate all of the birthday girl’s favorite colors and just generally be a cake that truly was one that she would love. I think we pulled it off!
Having a 7 of Hearts cookie card tucked into the Cheshire Cat’s Tail was a fun detail to celebrate the Birthday Girl.
