Alice in Wonderland is a phenomenal book with tons of whimsical imagery that can delight any mind. For this event, we were to create a little bit of that unique look for a young lady’s very first birthday. It was an honor of course getting to decorate for her party. I Have to admit though, it was even more fun getting to see the little one as she watched us put up and prepare the balloons for her event. Mom brought her along to decorate the facility and it was such a joy to get to see her smiling face before all the festivities began.
Mom put together some WONDERFUL centerpieces with plates, saucers, and teapots that she gathered from some local good will and salvation army stores. With a little hot glue and a simple mirror base, she was able to create stunning centerpieces that everyone loved.
To match the theme, we added a number of large pink 3 foot balloons around the room. This tied the colors together and helped to make the event pop in the eyes of those attending. Our mom was also eager to have an organic arch at her event as well. We have done these in the past and agreed to put one together for her. We chose to have a multitude of colors and sizes of balloons so that there would be plenty of depth in her table arch and so that it would accent the cake nicely for the event as well.
As will all events, we try to do something special when we can. For this one in particular, we pulled out some serious deco-twisting skills and put together two matching teapot columns for either side of the cake table. They added something unique to the event that one could not find elsewhere and it really helped pull the theme together.
As always, we had a blast traveling down this rabbit hole, creating the perfect Alice in Wonderland themed balloon decor for our little one’s first birthday party.
