{Alice in Wonderland Photo Shoot} Welcome to Our Wonderland!

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of collaborating on a creative photo shoot with Laura Winslow Photography. I was asked to style an Alice in Wonderland tablescape and surroundings. Giddy with excitement, I rolled out of bed at 4:15am to load up the car and head to the shoot. It was held at the estate of a well known family in our area. It couldn't have been more gorgeous! What an experience! The entire shoot went off without a glitch, thanks to Laura's organization and fabulous attitude. The girls (and one boy!) showed off gorgeous clothing and accessories. The flowers and baked goods topped off the table perfectly!

I never imagined it would turn out quite this beautiful.....

Thank you to all of the fabulous vendors involved in the styling portion of the shoot!

    This is great! I wish I would have seen this site before hosting my daughter's 6th birthday, which was an "Alice in Wonderland" theme! I love the bright colors. Thought I'd post some other ideas in case any of you are hosting an "Alice" party. We had a long Mad Tea Table set up in the back yard. Alice in Wonderland's soundtrack played "I'm late, I'm late" as guests scurried up the sidewalk to our front door where they went through the "rabbit hole" where Alice and guests awaited them on the other side. When the guests got to the table, they were frantically instructed to "paint the roses red". We had cheap faux white roses in vases with paintbrushes and washable red paint (emphasis on washable!) and let the children do a little painting as the Red Queen (my mom) stood by igasping in horror. After that, the guests were treated to tea party fare as the Mad Hatter entertained them. We were lucky enough to have the Mad Hatter (unfortunately it was not Johnny Depp) come and entertain the chidren for one hour. After tea time and entertainment it was already time to cut the cake and eat cupcakes all adorned with "Eat Me". The guests left with a brightly colored top hat, a tea bag, and a teapot necklace for the girls. This was a party for both boys and girls alike! Another idea I had planned if we would've had the time, was to buy those cheap pink yard flamingos (turn them upside down and tie the metal stakes together with floral tape and ribbon) and some balls and play "croquet". That would be another fun activity for an "Alice" party!
