Alice in Wonderland is most definitely one of my favorite books. When I first opened the book as a little girl, I remember how quickly I “fell into the rabbit hole” and couldn’t stop reading. It was so easy to conjure up the characters in my mind: Alice, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the chesire cat … and so many more. That’s why I love this theme for birthday parties (or baby showers). The characters, colors and quotes make this perfect for your daughter or son’s birthday.
This fun and casual Adventure Awaits invitation designed by DesignMyParty Studio features a hand drawn globe with adventure themed accents of mountains, an arrow and a not-too-scary black bear. The hand drawn trees of brown and green are simple and whimsical. The color pallet for the fonts also contrasts nicely with the cream colored background.[Read more…] about Creative and clever Adventure Awaits Baby Shower ideas

Flying high – bee themed balloons
These cute busy bee balloons below are available at Hostess with the mostess! There’s a step by step video on how to create these – plus her expert tip bears repeating: “I love using helium with this project to make the bees look like they’re actually “flying”, but this does mean you’ll need to make them the day of your party/surprise so that the helium stays strong… SO, if you’re pressed for time or need to make a lot of them for the occasion, here’s a trick you can use: Fill the balloons with regular air first so that you can paint the stripes and let them dry ahead of time. Then, when it’s time to actually use them, undo the balloon knot carefully to let the regular air out, and re-inflate them with helium!”
Buzzed Bee themed cupcakes
