We recently had the pleasure of attending one of the most epic birth– er, un-birthday parties I’ve even been to. With help from her family and others in the Disney community, Velia, the mother of Sophie (better known as @growinguponmainstreet on Instagram) transported guests down the rabbit hole by transforming an entire backyard into a literal Wonderland. From masterfully crafted Wonderland themed snacks to beautiful backdrops, no detail was left out. And to top it off, Alice and the Mad Hatter themselves (performed by The Adventure Effect) were guests of the party! They ran around with the kids, told stories, posed for pictures, and even played a rousing game of “Alice Says.”
The kids had the time of their lives (mine didn’t want to leave). And I found myself with so many pictures afterwards that I wanted to write a blog post to share them (and here we are, haha). So to summarize, Velia is #DisneyMomGoals and if you’re planning to throw your own Disney themed birthday party, you should definitely hire The Adventure Effect (they also do Peter Pan characters, Flynn and Rapunzel, and more) to perform!
Our outfits for the party. Zoe’s (right) was a DIY (iron-on transfers and fabric paint for the flower crown) and mine (left) is available in our shop!
Being the geeky Disney mom that I am, of course my outfit had to match the decor (Card Guard dress available in the shop link at the top of the page)
In a world of Alices, my little princess chose to be a card guard like her mom. If you ever need any roses painted red, we’re your gals!
When your outfit matches your snacks… in this case, an adorable card shaped rice krispie treat
Alice and Zoe in a world of their own…
Tickle time for the Mad Hatter

Every good party needs to have a themed photo spot to commemorate the occasion! (This one also happened to have its own Snapchat geotag!- not pictured, but it was really cool).
Ice cream sundae in a teacup with a chocolate key and a dollop of cotton candy on the side… HEAVEN!
I am absolutely in love with this Door Mouse decoration
Can we talk about the color scheme?! Wonderland birthday parties are totally my aesthetic!
Stunning decor <3
Zoe enjoyed the arts and crafts table. There were fun Wonderland crafts available, but she decided to go rogue…in other words, glitter EVERYWHERE
Hatter was kind enough to pour me a spot of tea
Enjoying the party with Daddy
