For a little girl who loves tea parties, there was really no other way to celebrate her 1st birthday…
And since I adore the illustrations in Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, here’s a party peek through the looking-glass.
THE PARTY DRESS
Green satin with a lace flower overlay and a big ol’ bow in the back. Shoes optional.
THE MAD HATTER
Aka: Daddy in a top hat
Onesies from days gone by…
A-buck-a-balloon post-Valentine’s-Day closeout. Valentine birthday for the win.

THE TEA SANDWICHES
Compliments of The Mad Hatter: a tea-sandwich-loving Dad
Flowers and cupids and hearts, oh my!
Tea for ONE (or 15 plus two babies)
The kiddie table, complete with play tea set
THE HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTEST
Sat though one course and spent the rest of the tea party running back and forth from the kitchen to the dining room “entertaining” her guests ;)
Beet-red velvet cake with orange buttercream–accompanied by a smash cake that the birthday girl shared with a VERY happy dog.
THE SPECIAL GUEST
The other “Alice” in ONEderland…a very special Great-Great Aunt
Piled high outside on a warm sunny day #winterbirthdayinphx
Cornmeal sugar cookie hearts packaged in owl Valentines
THE GOOD TIMES
Oh what fun it is to turn ONE.
THE AFTER PARTY
When you’re too excited to go to sleep, the next best thing is to play fetch with your doggie cousin ;-)
Welcome to ONEderland, Emily Alice! Down the rabbit hole we go…
