A few weeks ago we celebrated Hattie’s birthday with a Mad Hattie’s Tea Party themed party at our house. The whole family dressed up in Alice-inspired outfits…Stella was Alice, Liam and I were the Mad Hatter, Tori was the Red Queen, Finn was a “Drink Me” bottle, and Hattie was the Mad Hattie. Our yard was decorated with clocks, butterflies, the talking door, and I created giant cards like those in the Queen’s court.
Since Tori and I had already made Hattie cakes for her Birthday Cake Throwdown, we ordered desserts from Jenny Cookies. I cooked up a huge spread. The menu consisted of Bourbon and BBQ meatballs, apple and tuna phyllo cups with manchego cheese, teriyaki honey ginger chicken wings, baked brie with fig jam and assorted finger sandwiches. Everyone loved the food, so that made me feel great.
The party was a lot of fun. I still can’t believe my little girl is one year old! Recipes and a how-to on some of the decorations will be up soon, so make sure to check back. And for a full pictorial and videos from the day, you can visit Tori’s site.
