Just a quick post today to fill you in on the progress I'm making for the upcoming Alice in Wonderland Party!
Last night I started making the ruffles to go around the bottom of the tables--a.k.a. Table Tutus. My husband literally laughed at me when I brought it out to measure. I believe he thinks I am going to too much trouble. I believe my oldest daughter will only turn 6 one time! I didn't take a picture of the Table Tutu I was working on yesterday but it's the same colors as the very popular pixie tutu below. I have about 4 more Table Tutus to finish!
I also need to start working on the banners. I am planning on making one that says, "Welcome to Wonderland" one that says, "A Very Happy UnBirthday To You!" and one that says "Imma in Wonderland." We'll see if I get all of that done! I plan to use my cricut to cut out the letters, glue them on paper that matches the invitations, and string them together with ribbon.
I also need to make the tissue paper flowers. I bought a lot of silk flowers to decorate tables but I plan to make some bigger ones out of tissue paper as well.
I am also working on hanging tulle decorations that look sort of like teardrops. I will try to post a picture of them soon. I think I need 16 and I have 3 made. They take a long time to make because it's similar to making a boa but I am going to do my best to get them all done!
I would also like to make one more Mad Hatter hat to decorate a table with.
I have 144 balloons to blow up and attach to balloon sticks.
I also have to make the cake and figure out how to decorate it--scary!
I have 9 days to get all of this done! Wish me luck--or better yet, a clone!!
