Alice in Wonderland Party, great idea. Oh really? The idea of an “Alice” party was the easiest part. After the first flush of excitement I actually almost panicked after I started reading about planning on other blogs. Everyone said plan as early as possible and I started 10 weeks before party day. First I had to decide what the style of the party would be. While I’m a huge Disney fan I didn’t really want a Disney Alice party, animated or Burton-esque . I wanted to go more traditional.
Then came the shopping. And shopping, and shopping and shopping. Because what I wanted to use didn’t have to match the area Goodwill stores and other thrift stores were on my radar for everything I thought I could use. The first trip to Goodwill was fairly successful, lots of little bits and pieces. Some china, a silver tea service, linen napkins, interesting vases in beautiful colors and more.
