This fanciful ALICE IN WONDERLAND THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Susan Macieira from Brazil.
This Alice in Wonderland party has so many fabulous elements & ideas! A few of my favorites are:
The cupcakes topped with heart sprinkles and served in teacups
The gorgeous 2-tier fondant cake topped with a fondant shaped Queen of Hearts, White Rabbit and Cheshire Cat
The “EAT ME” chocolates
Here’s what Susan said about planning the party- “This was a party that I did for my niece for her birthday. She asked me to do a lovely party as I always do for my son Bernardo and I accepted the challenge of doing a party for girls. Here are some photos that show all the tenderness and charm of the theme: Alice in Wonderland.”

There are a lot of fun ideas here that I know you’ll enjoy! Some of my favorite things about this Angelina Ballerina party are:
The tutu banner hanging as the backdrop
The Angelina Ballerina chocolate pops
The ombre rose cake
This is what Astir said about the party- “To celebrate the birthday of Maria Sabrina, the theme was Angelina Ballerina. There were many flowers, lace and pearls. The delicate party was organized to celebrate the little lady who insisted on a cake to sing Happy Birthday!”

This is what Jenny said about planning the party- “I created this ‘apple of our eye’ party for my daughter, Charlotte’s, sixth birthday. I didn’t want the party to feel like a harvest so I incorporated crisp, modern printables and a preppy bright pink and apple green color scheme.
I wanted the focal point of the party to be an apple stand where the desserts would be displayed. I found a tutorial on how to make one on the blog, Lil Luna and decided to build it. I had the wood cut to size when I purchased it, so I basically just had to screw it together. My 10 year old daughter and her friend made the bunting for me using different hot pink and white fabrics. I had a local print shop cut a vinyl decal for the lettering. The farm stand and crates used for display were painted to match the pink on the invitation. I turned hot pink paper lanterns into apples and lined the edge of the yard with them.
When the little guests arrived for lunch, they untied their apple baskets from the backs of their chairs and dined on applewiches, harvest chips, mac ‘n cheese, apple sauce and of course a crisp green apple. They sipped on apple juice and lemonade served in glass jars. Each girl had an apple of our eye gumball tube at her place setting. To make the place mats, I simply made a document on word and then had it enlarged on thick glossy cardstock at my local printer shop.
After lunch, the girls put on ‘apple of my eye’ make up, made paper mache apples using left over fabric from the bunting and made apple necklaces. They also made their own mini apple pies in mason jars that we called, Charlie Pies- my daughter’s nickname.
The girls treated themselves at the farm stand, which was filled with apple cake pops, apple cupcakes, Apple Jacks, and candy apples. There was also ice cream scooped into candy cups and shaped to look like apples complete with a wooden ‘stem’ (spoon). They also loved the M&M ‘apples’ served in baking cups as well.
Party favors were ‘apple of my eye’ t-shirts.”

The gorgeous BALLERINA FIFTH BIRTHDAY PARTY was styled by Amanda and Simone of invite me in Australia. Ballerina parties seem to be so popular right now, but I love that no two are alike. While most of them share the same color scheme (PINK!), each one is full of unique, beautiful ideas.
Here are some of my favorite elements in this ballerina party:
This is what Amanda said about planning the party- “My gorgeous Grace turned five and loving ballet as much as she does, it was no surprise she requested a ballet themed birthday. Complete with twirling ribbons, pink ruffles and dancing cupcakes, the celebration was every little ballerina’s dream. A festival of all things pink and pretty, as long as there was lots of sparkle, Grace was always going to love it.
We knew the party had begun when a wave of tulle skirts and ballet slippers engulfed the house. Little ballerinas danced and played with Emma the ballerina who had them enthralled with all manner of ballet antics including pass the parcel, musical statues and musical chairs. After a little exercise, our petite party sat down for some afternoon tea.
The extremely talented Anita from Cake Envy provided the centerpiece of the table – an ombre ruffled cake with an oversized sugar flower and bejeweled centre – and ballerinas nibbled on beautiful ballet biscuits, strawberry mousse, tutu chocolates, ballerina push pops and candy.
Vintage-inspired Lovely Lace pastel pink paper plates and cups tied in perfectly with our ballet theme along with the Beautiful Ballerina printables and customized backdrop bunting designed and created by invite me. For a little extra sparkle we adorned our printable hats, sign and chocolates with ribbon, tulle and flowers from our local craft store. Nothing like a bit of cut and pasting to add that extra shine to your printables range!
Our ballerinas danced and twirled the afternoon away and after our guests left, my Grace turned to me and said. ‘Mummy, this is the best birthday I’ve ever had.’ You can’t beat praise like that.”
