Paulina's Very Merry Unbirthday Party

Paulina's birthday party was last weekend & we had SUCH fun. Here are the invitations I made up (with lots of help from Miss P):

{ invitations created using scraps of pink paper & lots of ribbon }

I copied bits & pieces of the wording from the story & from websites I checked out. I scanned in the image of the White Rabbit from my old colouring book from when I was a little girl:

{one of the few items from my childhood which survived!! }

We attached tea bags to the invites so each guest could make themselves a cup in anticipation of the Mad Hatter's Tea Party to come:

{ making tea in Great Aunt Pauline's teacups }

{ something is brewing... }

My sister, Leah, & our fabulous nanny, Arlyn, helped me with the preparations. The party was held in our unfinished basement where the bar will be (one day....). And Paulina & Sebastian were great assistants as well.

Soon we were ready for the arrival of our guests who were greeted with:

{ our welcome sign }

We are ready for our guests....

{ table settings }

{ take a bite }

{ eat me }

{ tea with the white rabbit }

And the guests arrive!!!

What a frabjous day! What uncommon nonsense was had by all!!!
