These fake white rose bushes were from BM bargains.

Thank you Beth for the mad hatter cake!
Beth constructed this amazing Mad Hatters cake and I dared to give 5 year olds bits of miss-matching china instead of the usual safe ikea plastic plates. £2 for a whole crate of plates means I dont mind too much if we lose the odd few… but I think they appreciated being able to pour apple juice from tea pots!
The wonderland theme is such a good one for there being a billion ideas for food and games and decorations. It was really hard to stop thinking of amazing and ridiculous ideas and I did consider hiring/constructing giant props to make an area for us all to have shrunk. If I was Victoria Beckham and had her level of party budget it would have been immense! (just as well Holly loved it anyway)
One girl seems to have been so amazed that she told her mum the table moved and the cups and plates danced…hurray for capturing little imaginative minds!
