The Birthday Post

I had so much fun planning my gals 1st birthday!  We went with an Alice in Onederland theme.  To create Wonderland  in our home I tried to decorate each room with its own theme from the movie.  For the Queen of Hearts room I lined the walls with handmade felt playing cards and placed bouquets of red roses in the room.  Our Dinning room became the Mad Hatters tea room, my favorite, and our formal living room was home to the Cheshire Cat.

 Our guests even helped create the world of Wonderland, arriving in whimsical outfits suitable for a Mad tea party.

We served tea sandwiches, orange cookies and lemon cupcakes decorated with oh-so-cute Itsy Belle cupcake toppers.  Have you shopped there before?  She has some adorable party printables that just give life to your party.  To frost the cupcakes we used homemade raspberry whip cream icing, my taste buds are reliving the flavor as I write this, we are talking lick the bowl clean good! I found the recipe on the Joy of Baking website.

I think she liked it too.

 The best part of the party was watching my little girl enjoy her day. 

You're 1 year old I can't believe it!
