The beginnings to a Alice in Wonderland Party

This will be my first party since I was is on a Alice in Wonderland theme. I will be posting pictures along the way...

This is a combination birthday party for my husband and I. Our budget ius $200 which includes the food. So naturally thrifting and the 99c store came in first place for us. The mushroom is made with 3 tee ball practice balls wrapped in foil for form and then duct taped to secure the base was a lamp shade. The bottom was a boa that we had and broke. A little paint and voila.. The next treasure was this cute little watering can with great colors from the thrift store for $2. The flowers were from the dollar store and they had the greatest eyes. which I glued to them for the talking flowers..

Total cost for these items $7...Keep in mind I have extra product left over.... We will try to cut cost by shapping mushrooms out of newspaper
