We made some Alice in Wonderland invitations for Cappers’ upcoming 11th birthday. She’s totally into the idea of an Alice in Wonderland party, having devoured the books and the movie. Such is her devotion, when we were in London we even schlepped across town to visit the exhibition at the British Library. This will be a delicious theme for a tweenie birthday party!
So for Cappers’ 11th, we are going down the rabbit hole with Alice and friends (Cappers wants to be the Mad Hatter – she is not one to want to don a dress and white bow). These Alice in Wonderland invitations set the scene…We bought the little bottles from Kmart – $2 for 4 – and added an ‘Eat Me’ label.
Inside were a few Jelly Belly lollies and the actual invitation on a ‘cake’ background, because, of course, it was a little tiny cake that Alice ate that made her grow bigger and bigger and bigger. I’m hoping to recreate that scenario at the party on the weekend (all will be revealed…).
The paper doll cut out is from a vintage book. I have no hesitation in supplying it here for you to download because the original work is genuinely vintage and I am sure the copyright would be long finished. (It it’s not, do let me know and I’ll remove the printable!).

We hand-delivered all twelve of our invitations. The kids had the BEST time being ‘stealth mailmen’ and setting up little Alice and her Eat Me treat on the front doorstop before ringing the doorbell and fleeing. The ‘stealth’ part of the mission is debatable. One friend called me moments after the doorbell rang to RSVP yes and tell me she could hear the kids giggling from three doors away. Love ’em!
Can’t wait for the weekend (and yet, SO MUCH TO DO!)
