On Sunday Xiera celebrated her 5th Birthday Party. We celebrated a bit early this year since her official birthday is on Wednesday.
The theme: Alice in Wonderland of course!
Her dress was made by Kristen and her mother Carol of bluebottledesigns.
The party was so much fun and the theme helped me think up the neatest games and crafts for the kiddos to do.
For craft time there were coffee filter flowers for the children to make from Wonderland's Garden.
Some fun with face painting.
A little Croquet
And pin the tail on the White Rabbit
The children enjoyed an outdoor Mad Hatter Tea Party in the beautful sunshine.
Xiera took a bite of her teacup shaped cookie and said, "I'm Shrinking!" LOL!
On the tea cups I put "Drink Me" labels and the tea cup shaped cookies read "Eat Me" in icing.
I stayed up in the wee hours of the night and early morning making Xiera's Tea Pot Cake. I was so pleased with how it turned out! I found this great website with a wonderful tutorial on how to make one HERE.
It was a HUGE hit. I wasn't sure if it would feed everyone who attended the party so I also made 2 batches of cupcakes, just in case. :)
Make a Wish Sweetheart!
Happy 5th Birthday Xiera! Mommy and Daddy love you so much!

What can I say? I have been one bad blogger. No posts! I haven't stopped in to read any of my beloved bloggers BEAUTIFUL blogs. I am so ashamed! Please forgive me. I have no excuse except that sunshine was calling.
So what have we been up to? Well Xiera and Zella have been busy having fun modeling for a number of designers.
Debby of Sugarbelle Chic Boutique sent this GORGEOUS strawberry dress set for Xiera to model.
This set is now officially Xiera's and she will be wearing it next week for the Lil Miss Strawberry Pageant at our town's Strawberry festival. So exciting. The custom strawberry set is also listed on Ebay and you can find it HERE.
Debby also sent an adorable bird set for Zella to model. It is also listed on Ebay HERE.
