A 4th Un-Birthday Tea Party

Well, it's birthday season again here in Ririeville and unsure of how I'd be feeling 3 weeks postpartum, I put party planning on the back burner...however, I figured last minute if I could go grocery shopping, and run errands and was back to doing almost all normal activity, I could certainly whip up a last minute soiree.  Mia had been dying to have an Alice in Wonderland themed party, which being so last minute didn't get to include all of the details I'd hoped , but it came across pretty well, and was a fabulous little tea party turn out.

 I got a few tea sets at our local thrift store for .30 a piece and added some flowers and dollar tree doilies to the table, a burlap runner, and little thrift store tea pots.
I used old tissue paper to make these pom poms

I used the recipe for Hershey's famous Perfectly Chocolate chocolate cake and icing on the back of their cocoa box, and had a Polly Pocket double as Alice falling down the rabbit hole. The cake wasn't fancy but was absolutely decadent if I do say so myself.
 I got this idea from Pinterest using coffee filters and spray paint


 I served yummy and easy finger foods with pink lemonade
 thankfully everyone was willing to help out with little Ainsley
 all of Mia's besties from school showed up, along with her church and gymnastics friends
 we played simple games like Alice in Wonderland Bingo...


... Hot Potato with Mrs. Pots

 her first fishing pole, from her big brother, bought with his own allowance...dare I say it was her most favorite gift.
it was a great time and I'm so glad I did it.
