Alice in Wonderland Event in Stratford upon Avon

Alice in Wonderland Event in Stratford upon Avon

015 Betsy Kitten WEB

On Tuesday I took Betsy to the Bancroft as LSD Promotions had put on a special market and Alice in Wonderland event! The market was lovely, with fantastic eateries (the bubble waffle was incredible!).

The Wonderland area was small, but it kept Betsy happy for a good 1.5hrs. We met up with a couple of her friends and she couldn’t get enough of the characters. Kudos to the people dressed up in the heat, they did a wonderful job.

There was a giant chair, pocket watch and rose wall for photo opportunities and a long tea party table with hat decorating (these were covered in red glitter which was a bit of a nightmare as we got covered too, but hey, you can’t complain when it comes to free crafts for kids!). You could even play giant chess or flamingo croquet with the characters.

Betsy looked adorable in the felted Cheshire Cat top hat I had made and I was surprised with how long she kept it on for! So many people commented on it and she took great pleasure in chatting to them. I wore a teacup headpiece I made many years for my hen tea party! Shame I didn’t get any decent pictures of my outfit, but always the way when you are the photographer.

Well done LSD Promotions! Great job!

Mad Hatters Hen Party Photos!

On Saturday I had my amazing hen party! We arranged it at Candee’s house and she, Becky and I transformed the living room into an enchanted woodland for the occasion.

Candee’s partner Jacob did an amazing job making cupcakes and coconut macaroons. You would have thought he had a cottage industry going with the amount he managed to make. I felt like swimming through them like Scrooge McDuck and his room of gold coins…

Becky made 4 incredible floor cushions in the shape of leafy hillocks. I nicknamed them ‘My humps, my humps, my leafy fleecy lumps!’ and each had a little ladybird button on it and wonderful detailing. I was amazingly impressed with her craft skills. She also made a huge bag of red tissue roses to adorn the front hedges!

John from The Cake Gallery made the most incredible looking and tasting cake you have ever seen. He made a little version of me, lounging in a sexy Alice costume on a Chaise Lounge! I have never had a professional cake made for me before and this is the best one I have ever clapped eyes or teeth onto! You have to see this guy’s creations, they are brilliant!

Candee did a brilliant job with ordering bits of decor, organising everyone and making the beautiful invites. Each one had a letter from the Mad Hatter and March Hare and was tied with a ribbon and little brass key! I wore the ribbon and key around my wrist at the party!

I made some chocolate and strawberry swirl Angel Delights and banoffee pies served in china cups and saucers, some talking flowers and a tiny door with the help of Mr. Mew! I hand painted wood grain on the front, a keyhole and bunny shape and then aged it. We were so pleased with the finished article and it was suspended on the front door as people entered.

Becky decided to come as the Cheshire Cat…leaving her smile everywhere…Candee had the most amazing Mad Hatter costume and makeup I have ever seen in my life, Jacob was King of Hearts and I was Alice!

I made myself a fascinator in the shape of a cup and saucer with a real spoon sticking out the top and Mama and wide brimmed rose hat with a Rocking Horse Fly stuck to it! She looked like an Edwardian lady and would have fitted right in at Ascot…

Shona van Beers of Heyday Online made the perfect Queen of Hearts and screamed the place down at regular intervals with “WHERE ARE MY TWO FAT BOYS?!” and “OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!!!” She made me laugh so much, it was hilarious!

My 2 friends ‘the Helen’s’ came as Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee with matching bowler hats, braces and black trousers and shirts, Flick came as a Steampunk White Rabbit, Joanna had a fantastic costume with playing cards sewn onto it and my darling Kate was her usual gorgeous self, all the way from Manchester.
