A Very Merry UN-Birthday Party

For Cadee's 2nd UN-birthday party
{we had it a week early}
we decided on a Wonderland "Tea Party" theme!

I was planning on making my daughter her "Alice" dress,
but when I found it for a great price
I was relieved to have one less thing to do!

Like I said in my previous post I am in love with the dollar store
so most of my party prep and decorations are from there :}

I found some great plastic vases with decorative etching
and thought they would be perfect with a little black spray paint
{that way I didn't have to fill them to cover the fake stems of the roses}
And of course I filled them with RED and WHITE roses


I also came across this "Fabulous Find" while browsing the Goodwill

It needed a little TLC that for sure
and suprisingly I came across this blog 
with a home recipe for silver polish!
{See great minds think alike}

For the rest of the decorations,
we just made a few signs saying
"This Way", "That Way", "Over Yonder"...
Found some doiles and playing cards for the table.
{I realized later when looking at my pictures, I fogot to put the clocks on the table, oops!}

And of course, we had croquet,
one set for the kiddos and one for the adults
{unfortunately, i forgot to get a picture of the cute kids set}
My mother-in-law had printed out cute pictures
of the playing card characters from the cartoon movie
and taped them around the goals!

It must have been my lucky week
because I ended up finding Alice in Wonderland story books
to give to the kids in their goody bags!

It was a great party and I had so much fun planning it,
already thinking of ideas for the next one!
