Alice in Wonderland Birthday Party

This party was fun to decorate for! Katelyn and I were able to find tons of ideas on the perfect Alice in Wonderland decorations and games. We made sure to include a photo booth of crazy, the game of croquet, drink me water bottles, flowers with eyeballs, a white rabbit, crazy direction signs, cupcake decorating, and more.

The girls loved the photo booth I bought from Target a little while ago! We got lots of pictures of the girls making silly faces. They were all excited to participate. We played croquet which worked with some girls but we had too many for a slow paced game. The other girls jumped on the trampoline. We also played a family favorite of clothespin tag. Everyone starts with five clothespins on their shirts and a time limit to go. As soon as the time starts your goal is to get as many clothespins on your shirt as you can by stealing them from the other players. You cannot take more than one at a time and have to pin it on your shirt before taking the next one but watch out, they can do the same to you! This always ends up being lots of fun! When the time runs out the player with the most clothespin wins. Decorating cupcakes was another really fun activity. We decorated cupcakes the Mad Hatter Tea Party way. Everyone started out by with frosting their cupcakes for about 30 seconds and then when the time was up they passed it maybe a couple times to the right, maybe a couple times to the left. We switched about four times and then I gave them about ten more seconds to add anything they wanted before they got to eat them. We served these with fruit kabobs that said eat me and water bottles that said drink me. Plus Zack's carmel popcorn for fun! They also had cute teacups to drink soda pop. Katelyn was spoiled with lots of fun gifts from her friends, had a blast playing, laughing and hanging out with all her friends.

We finished off our party mood with another family party with a mad hatter aka topsy turvy bright pink zebra print birthday cake and ice cream too. It was a birthday to remember!
