Yesterday was our engagement party. The idea of an engagement party is for the immediate families to meet and get to know each other. I have an obsession with Alice in Wonderland and so everything so we decided to have an Alice in Wonderland themed engagement party. Here's a run down of the decorations we made..
All of my decorations are DIY. This mirror on the front door "Down the rabbit hole" I free hand made by using acrylic paint on a thin sheet of cardboard. I used a Sharpie oil based paint pen in black. We tacked it up with regular clear packaging tape.
Also on our thin cardboard with acrylic paint I made the iconic "this way, that way" signs from the original Alice in Wonderland.
Another iconic thing from Alice in Wonderland is the magic mushroom, and cookies, and drinks that make her taller and smaller. We brought this into the party with "drink me" cup labels and special labels on our drinks.
I was able to make my own labels with the following images. I found these through Google.com. I printed them out on sticker paper. Then just cut them and stuck one on every cup. I taped the larger signs to the drink dispenser because the sticker paper didn't seem like it would come off very easily.
Here's the drink dispensers. I forgot to take a picture of the cups, phooey. We made pink lemonade and iced tea.
