Alice Birthday party

We didn't actually act out the movie (which, I realized the day before, is what J. planned to do!!) nor did I go overboard with the theme but it did seem to be enough for J. 

I made her an Alice dress from a butterick pattern for a Dorothy dress.  She was so thrilled with it that she's only taken it off to have it washed since then.  And her BFF has requested the same one from her grandma. 

I had a bit of trouble with the collar but otherwise am happy with it.

The girls made shrinky dink charms to add to the bracelets they fished out of "Alice's Pool of Tears" for charm bracelets.  They also "caught" kerchiefs, which were not quite in keeping with the theme but were super cute.

I made tissue paper pom poms using Martha's tutorial and they were fantastic!  So easy (and cheap!) and add a great pop of colour.  I bought mismatched tea cups at a local thrift store and sent them home with the girls after the party. The dollar store fake flowers were supposed to be given away too but I forgot. Ooops!
