Although there are many things–baby related and not–that I’d love to be blogging about, my newest creative project doesn’t give me much time in the day where I have the use of more than one of my hands, and blogging one-handed is just a little too painstaking. So I’m hoping to get at least one new and exciting post up each week, some guest posts and giveaways, and for the next while, I’m going to do a FLASHBACK FRIDAY, where I feature some of my posts from a year or two ago, that you may have missed. If you have a favorite post you’d like me to find and feature again, please leave a comment. This post is about a gourmet group dinner I attended, and was originally blogged on May 21, 2009.
This is not My Insanity–but I wish it were! Back in the middle of my April craziness, I got to sneak away for gourmet group at my friend, Jennifer’s house. She and Alicia went all out creating this evening in Wonderland (as in Alice in Wonderland) for us. I asked them if I could share with all of you, because not only was it a fantastic dinner party, but their ideas would be great for Alice in Wonderland parties for all ages. Since Alicia wrote a detailed post, including recipe links, I’m going to refer you to her blog for all of the details, but it was such a visual feast that I had a hard time deciding which photos to share. So here are lots of them (even more on Alicia’s site):
This photo doesn’t quite capture the experience of being led through the rabbit hole (long hallway) by the White Rabbit himself, in darkness with flashing lights. Yeah. I knew it was going to be good with a start like that!
Fun colorful paper lanterns added whimsy to the table, and served as place markers for our ever-changing seats (like the movie)
Of course, the Eat Me boxes, and Drink Me bottles! Perfect! (And while we didn’t play, the croquet game was all set up for us.)
Can you figure out who each of our courses was? (Answers on Alicia’s site.) We also had a special “tea” (chocolate soup–yum!) for dessert, so we could say we were at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.
The elusive white rabbit makes his appearance at last! Such a fun (and yummy) evening! Thanks ladies!
