Alice in Wonderland Birthday Party – Part One

We always wanted to throw an Alice in Wonderland themed birthday party for our daughter! At the same time, we always thought it’s a complex theme for a young age. We wanted her to be able to enjoy the party and at the same understand the theme.

It’s her first year at Primary School and we did not want a big party. We planned to do something intimate and cozy in our backyard. She invited 6 of her closest friends. It allowed us to customize the favors and also focus on the quality of the Goddie Bags. (If you ever had to prepare 20/30 Goodie Bags, you know what I’m talking about! $$$ Cast the first stone those who have never gone through Halloween candies to prepare the goodie bags). 

We did not expect her to get so involved in planning the party as she did. She wanted to participate and brought her opinion in every detail of her party. First of all, she started by helping Mom to choose the cake design. (that one was literally “a piece of cake” since Mom is the cake designer!!) Then, they went through hundreds of Pinterest boards to select ideas for the sweet table and for the decorations. She helped Mom with the decorations for the cake and cupcakes.

Activities

For the activities, we chose:

  • 3 colors challenge with Alice in Wonderland coloring page.
  • Cupcake workshop

  • “Find the hidden key”

The idea to do a game with keys turned out really fun and the girls loved it. As soon as the girls arrived, each one was assigned a color of ribbon and they received a bracelet with their color. After the 3 colors challenge, they had to find the keys hidden around our backyard.

For this game we bought a set of vintage keys and tied each key with a different colored ribbon. They enjoyed it so much that in the next day some of the girls went to school wearing the key as a pendant.

The Favors

The favors included a bag with “Eat me” cookies, a “drink me” bottle and a UNBIRTHDAY gift. The UNBIRTHDAY gift was a coloring book and Colored Pencil Set.

Literally 5 minutes before the Party started, I decided to make some signs and instead of receiving the girls by the front door, it guided them directly to our backyard. It is very simple. First of all you need to print a big arrow with the words you want. Then you have to glue them into a cardboard box. I used one that was laying around the house for weeks refusing to go to recycling. Then I cut it out in arrow shape and placed the signs outside the house. I believe that with more time this look so much better! The best part is that the girls loved it and pretty much all the parents played along!

On AliExpress we bought the beautiful Alice’s dress and also the pair of striped socks.

Our friend from Fêtes de Jardins was in charge of the décor and she did an amazing job as always! Thanks Dany

  1. This is one of the best themes to consider. I am a big Alice in wonderland fan. I am pretty interested to do this if there’s chance.

  2. This speaks volumes to my heart. One of my absolute favorite Disney cartoons ever. The details and effort on this party is beautiful. Planned this in the future where my husband has NO choice but to be the mad hatter, ahahah. Great job!

    1. Hi Aldrei! We are glad that you liked the party!! Let us know if your husband will accept the idea of being the Mad Hatter!!!

    1. Thanks Lauren!! We tried our best to throw a great party and keeping it on the budget!! We are glad that you liked!!

  3. Alice in Wonderland is still one of my favorite books. I ever did a semester long project on her on college. I love all of this! Especially the keys. I don’t think my son would go for it for his birthday but maybe I’ll do it as an adult party.

  4. I am bookmarking this post for next year when my daughter turns 7. This has her name written all over it. She would love it for sure.

    1. Our Alice loved to see her name all over the party!! I’m sure yours will love it to.
      Stay tuned for the post where we’ll talk about the food and give some tips for decoration!

    1. This is adorable and beautiful your daughter is indeed excitingly creative I love her idea of the keys and the keys and the unbrithday gifts also looks beautiful as well I trust she really had fun and enjoyed her birthday party.

  5. I love Alice in Wonderland, and this is by far the coolest thing ever. I wonder what my kids would think if I had my own Alice in Wonderland themed birthday in a few months.

  6. This is pretty cool and I am not creative. My son is turning 4 and thinking of what to do for his birthday. This gives me the motivation to try a theme first and search crafts that I can make on my own. Probably more affordable as well.

  7. What a fantastic birthday party that I’m sure your daughter will remember and cherish for years to come. I would love to do something like this for my daughter when she gets older!!

  8. This is a great idea!!!!!!!!!! I love Alice in Wonderland, so the party will probably be for me lol. Thanks for sharing — this is really cool!
