Themed Birthday Party!

In about three weeks, I turn 30.


I'm not really prepared for that milestone, & I sort of am all at the same time. My 20's were so wonderously fabulous to me, that saying goodbye to them is like saying goodbye to an old friend. [Which, that is another post for another day]. But I feel like so many great things will happen in my 30's, that I am looking forward to the future.

But in the mean time, in order to ring in the new year and celebrate in style, I'm throwing myself a huge birthday bash. We are doing an Alice in Wonderland themed costume party, & to say that it is getting out of control is most definitely underestimating the situation.

My crafty side is taking over. I have found so many great things that I want to do for decoration purposes to really bring out the theme! I'm looking forward to my 10 day vacation from work to really get some of these things banged out.

For instance!

How adorable is that? [via The Long Thread] Since I [naturally] am going as the Queen of Hearts, this is a perfect garnish of sorts for around the house. Ideally, I would like to find some jumbo cards, but I'll take whatever I can find!

This heart garland is also a perfect addition to around the house. Originally meant for a Valentine's Day decoration, I still think it will work wonderfully for a Queen of Hearts garden!

And YUM. Cakes in a jar! I think this would be the perfect giveaway for the party, or at the very least, an easy way to serve dessert.

I have a whole board over on Pinterest [which is the greatest website ever if you are not a member!] dedicated to this party, and am looking for some more great decoration ideas. Alice in Wonderland has always been a favorite of mine, and I am looking forward to bringing some of the vintage style of the story to the party as well.

Nice post about themed birthday bash. I am totally in love with DIY decorations. My husband’s birthday is also coming in a week and I have been planning a wonderful surprise casino themed birthday at some domestic event venue. I wonder if you have DIY casino party decoration ideas too.
