Here’s what Charlene said about the party- “Planning my 30th birthday was interesting. I really wanted it to be a little different and whimsical. I have been fond of Disney’s Alice in Wonderland since I was younger, and I really liked the Tim Burton Version of it as well. I love mushrooms and funky objects so what better theme than this? I love the vintage look and bright colors somehow combined well together. All the party props and decor were provided by www.chakodadesign.com so that part was pretty easy!

Sweet tooth by Abby, made my delicious pastries, the cutest cake pops, and just beautifully detailed Eat me cookies, and playing cards! So talented! I’m jealous of all her wonderful ability to bake and make it look like a piece of art. My photographer Angel (Angel G Photography)
was brilliant in capturing the smallest details that were really important to me, and all the effort I put into this design setup! Thank you Angel for putting this day and all my memories in a bottle for years to remember. My photobooth was by Party4beauty- Crystal was such a sweetheart, and much fun to work with. She customized my prints exactly like the design on my invitation for guests to take home. Photobooths are so much fun to have at any event, they really bring out the silliness in the quietest or most shy person. I love them!

I always like to set up at least 2 days beforehand especially since there were a lot of large items I was going to display, however with the unexpected rain, I couldn’t place any of my items out, which really made me kind of nervous. I waited until the next day to see if the rain had dried out most of my yard, only to find that it had rained the whole night before. I now started to panic! My backyard was a muddy swamp. I knew I had to move quickly with plan B (no idea whatsoever). Well, common sense was to put up canopy tents so that my guests would not get wet! I can’t handle looking at plastic tents, so I tried to cover up the inside with a backdrop.

Before I knew it it was almost 6pm! I hurried to call my hairstylist to see what time she would come, little to find out that she had to take her mom to the emergency room, due to some pain she was having. She cancelled on me! I didn’t think things could get worse, as it started to pour rain. I was feeling like I was going to pass out on the floor and then wake up to have a nervous breakdown after! I finally snapped out of it, jumped in the shower and tried to put myself together. One of my friends came to the rescue to put the faux eyelashes on me. (thanks Raquel). When I finally was ready, the DJ had already gotten there and finished setting up, and the photographer was already snapping away at all my party! Things felt a little better! Guests started to arrive. I could breathe again. The night was a success despite the rain. My guests had a blast taking pictures at the photobooth, with the props that were set out. We danced
the night away. After midnight, the music ended, (being courteous to my neighbors) bringing the party inside and continuing until 4:30 in the morning. I thought that was something people just say to describe the party as crazy! However a lot of my guests actually really left at that time. You have to remember that I’m the mommy of a 3 year old, so things are a lot different than my prior life. All my guests and vendors absolutely loved the party and design setup! A couple of my vendors said that it was the best party they had ever been to and it was “theme park status”. Wow, I was so excited! My birthday was over -I and many of my friends will remember this for a long time! (I guess I really got what I wanted- my 30th birthday was actually crazy) next time I will be a little bit more specific to what I actually want. My march hare and I ended the night cuddled together. That was definately a night to remember with all the unexpected craziness! I really hope you enjoy reading my adventure and I loved sharing it with all of you.”
