Wonderlandia Week ~ Imagine a Party

>> Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Well ladies (and Richard) here it is. My interpretation of Wonderlandia, or as I like to call it, "Imagine a Journey"...

With fanciful illustrations of a flying machine and a sailing vessel, this is the perfect party for a little birthday girl who dreams of a trip full of wonder. Bright colors were combined with more natural tones - in moss and kraft paper - to really pop off the table.

These custom "globe" fondant cupcake toppers were created by none
other than Brittany of Edible Details. Cute right?

This "antique" looking globe got the decoupage of its life!

My cute husband drilled holes in the ends of wooden 
cutlery to make a napkin "ring" and place card all in one.

A personalized "Passport"is an activity book in disguise.

What could be more perfect than a party favor bag filled with cloud-like meringue cookies?

Starbucks coffee bottles make the perfect glasses for lemonade, pink lemonade.

Yummy and perfectly matching cake pops from Cathy of A Twist of Cake.

Is it a cake stand or a popcorn tree? Both I think... 
Take 2 hatbox lids and 2 candle holders (and a lot of glue dots!)

It wouldn't be a party without favors for the guests. These are bamboo puzzles in clear boxes. 
Add moss and some matching packaging - so cute!

The table turned out better than I could have ever thought - it all came together, wind and all! I have to acknowledge a ton of people, starting with Jenn herself because really without her we wouldn't be here staring at these fab photos. My sister Missy (photographer extraordinaire), Cathy and Brittany (creative confections), Amy (my sounding board), my husband Richard (a man with a lot of patience). Did I forget anyone?

Okay, now for the secret. Not probably at all a secret, but here it goes... I will be offering this collection in my shop - yay! I'm excited to finish it and have it ready for you all. It was such a fun set to work on, such a fanciful collection to look at... wouldn't your daughter just love it?

More photos tomorrow! Come on back for pics of the event itself, and you have got to check out the swag bag that HWTM gave everyone.
