Real Event: Alice in Wonderland!

4:13 PM


Last week Event Kings and King Lily Floral produced the Alice and Wonderland Sweet 16. It was so rewarding to take a previous Dream Theme and make it a reality. This particular event was based on the modern Johnny Depp version of the movie. It was held at an amazing Italian restaurant Il Bacco that I previously blogged about (still dreaming about that Osso Buco!).With 4 flat screen TV's (2 in the bathrooms!!) and 2 additional plasma's on truss' we played the movie. It was such a cool touch to have that looping throughout the entire event.
 The client bought the cardboard stand-ups from Shindigz. We had Johnny Depp, Queen of Hearts, Alice and 2 chess pieces....they were life size and so amazing to have around the room.

 These centerpieces are my new favorite! The Mad Hatter hat was placed on top of a bed of green, pink and hot pink roses. I placed peacock feathers in the vase and another coming out of the hat for extra height. On the table were gold gilded candles and custom favors the client made (think DRINK ME tea for adults and DRINK ME hot chocolate for the cute!).

 We also had giant Queen of hearts playing cards around the room!
The table #'s were created by the same designers who made the invite. It was great to incorporate the mad hatter hat from the beginning!

 The customized sign in book was from Etsy. Hint: bring it around to the tables of older relatives; they will be grateful to sit and write!
Chess piece place card holders were another nice detail.

A packed dance floor is a sure sign of a successful event!
The cake almost trumped my centerpieces...OK, I admit; it was a true show stopper and the perfect ending to a fabulous party!
