Alice in Wonderland party!!

I thought it would be a great idea to have an Un-birthday party. I always have an excuse to have a party!
We have Alice...


We have our White Queen...


Our Mad Hatter...


Our red Queen...Oh well what can i say...


Zacky wanted to be the blue cat....Told him he looked like the mouse....LOL


Here is our cat...








We are all ready for a Tea Party...








I made this cake from my friend Juli's blog....Definitely desserts here.



Super good...I molded it with a big yogurt cup. Boiled some strawberry jam for the syrup on top, added Raspberries.




I made some egg sandwiches in the shape of flowers....Never had this in France....It is hard boiled eggs cut in little pieces, with mayonnaise, Pickle Cut in little pieces. Layer on bread. Very good.


Cloches were used to protect the food from bugs and keep it fresh in old days. We use them in France a lot for cheeses.


This cake is easy to do...Red velvet cake, chocolate icing, white icing. Cut and layer in Big yogurt cup. Freeze , it comes out more easy. Mini Chocolate chips and Raspberries on top. 
We had herbal tea, sugar in a cup and milk in small jar.


Yum!!!


I used a duvet comforter from the girl's room and my Toile China...

Branches of Cherri blossoms hanging from Chandelier...Since we could not have the party outside...


We had fun!!!


Little kids love Tea Parties...





Then we saw Alice in Wonderland in 3 D.



With our pretty clothes...and hats...We all loved it...

Bonjour!

I read your profile/story over on Maggies blog and had to some and explore! And, I am now following!

You, my dear seem to be as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside!

Your photos are gorgeous!

I have never been to Paris, as of yet, but my sister lived in Germany less than a kilometer from the Rhine...not far from Baden Baden and we spent several weeks exploring small villas in the Alsace region,,,,which I truly fell in love with! And, I swear, I lived in Straussburg in a former life-I loved "little Paris."

Your children are gorgeous and I'm happy that Maggie's interview shared a bit about you and your life! Your husband's work is a true blessing!

Stop by my little blog when you have time and say "hi."

Bonjour~

What a creative lady you must be! That is one fun family tea party you planned for them. I took this chance on my first visit to read a couple of posts and I'll be watching for more good ones to come. Found my way here from Natasha's blog. I'm a real Francophile myself even though I'm currently living in London and Houston.

Happy weekend,

That is so wonderful! The kids got to do something different, and you all spent a fun time together. We haven't had a tea party around here for a very long time, but they were quite the thing when my girls were younger.

Have a good weekend.
