dashes – recap on my alice invite


Just a quick recap. You all remember my process posts on this Alice in Wonderland themed party invite i illustrated a few weeks back? Well, the actual celebration went down yesterday! My friend, jackie and her husband threw the most wonderful, and fun birthday celebration for their two children whose birthdays are actually on consecutive days. One turned 6 and the other turned 4. Talk about a class act! This party had it all; children’s theater production of Alice in Wonderland, popcorn bags filled with treats and theater-themed toys, a buffet of kid-friendly food and THIS amazing 2-decker cake made by Clay’s Bakery in Paoli, PA. They took lead from the invite and even made sugar transfers of the 2 characters for cookies adhered to the first layer!  And here is our birthday girl (below) staring at the glow of birthday candles. i love when a theme flows through a party front to back. And i LOVE being one piece if the puzzle.


…and this post couldn’t be complete without the smiling birthday boy : )
