Down the rabbit hole!10:04:00 AM
One thing about me...I LOVE unique party ideas! If I am going to do something I have to try my darnedest to make everything PERFECT! With that, I threw a baby shower for my adorable lil' sister last summer and did Alice in Wonderland (well I called it Felicia in Wonderland!) themed! I ransacked the Internet and didn't find much that I was wanting. SO I took matters into my own hands!
I have a friend who has www.zazzle.com/pickypickle actually physically "design" my invitation idea using one of her programs! I bought an image off of Etsy and wrote out exactly what I wanted it to say and told her I wanted it to look like a playing card! This is how it turned out (please ignore my shotty attempt to erase my personal info!). Didn't she do a fabulous job?! She emailed me the "card" and I printed it on card stock paper. I then bought red cards at Michael's Crafts store (not affiliated, but if they want to give me a lil' somethin' somethin'...by all means do!) and used a round edged punch to round out the corners...OK so I had to have my husband do it cause it was too thick for my wee wittle hands, but who's keeping score anyhow?! I added red rhinestones from the scrapbook section for the 'i's and my fave exclamation point!
This was so much fun! I bought different shaped flowers. Big, small and tried to stick with the red, black and white theme! I raided my kids craft box and used the googly eyes (hot glued them on), I thought they turned out fantastic!
This is the drink table! I had party favors, I wrapped the waters in scrapbook paper and ribbon. I made the little men to look like the queen of hearts "card men"! (people from Michael's, cards from the $1 store & once again googly eyes!)
Me and my lil' sister! Isn't she cute as a bug! Oh and for those wondering why our mom named us "Aleisha and Felicia" we are actually sister "in laws" but who needs that end title anyhow?!
