Wow, 6 weeks of planning, decoration making, plotting and scheming….all for one day, and one day that got rained out!! UGH!!! My beautiful garden picnic got turned into an art gallery rather than a place to gather, eat and laugh. Due to the inconsiderate rain, the party took place indoors with people going out back “touring” the patio and all that had been set up. I felt like I was running a museum 😛
But despite the rain, my baby girl had a FABULOUS day! She loved her candy bar, she was BONKERS about her cake and so many of our closest friends and family shared in on another year past for my Bug!
I didn’t take pics during the party to avoid getting caught up in capturing moments rather than savoring them 🙂 but I did photograph the setup prior to guests arriving as well as took some photos for those people who were kind enough to lend their talents to making this special day come to life 😀
I’d also like to take a moment to thank someone who worked behind the scenes helping me create this perfect party for my princess. Melisa, you were a lifesaver. From the amazing mushroom cookies you made, helping me set up the “tea party” to forcing me into the shower promising to take care of everything else for me…..you were my saving grace. I owe you a HUGE thanks for what you did and for the time you gave to me. I love you pumpkin!! Thank you, thank you, thank you….and I mean it from the utmost bottom of my heart!!
So here you go, take a visual walk through Alice’s garden tea party and enjoy…..
A very sincere thanks to the following people who lended their creative awesomeness to making this idea in my head come to life!!
