Alice in Wonderland Birthday Tea Party

My daughter turned 5 on friday, and of course we had to have an "Alice in Wonderland" themed birthday party.
It was also very "Etsy" themed since I got a few things from there. One being her cute Alice dress! Also, the best tasting sugar cookies ever! Not only do they look amazing but they are perfectly tasting. I got her owl and puppy cookies for my birthday, and I think I will have to get some for every holiday.

We had a cute little tea party since we were just having girls to the party. I got all the plates and tea cups from the Goodwill along with all the vases I put red roses in. I got Regan a special tea cup from Anthropologie since we love tea! Don't worry, she drinks Organic kids tea with no caffeine ;)

I Also made my first fondant cake. Regan insisted on not having cupcakes, go figure. They are not special enough anymore since we make them like once a week. I still had to make some because I knew not everyone wanted strawberry cake like her.
It turned out ok, not really what I had in my head but the checkerboard look worked. I made it around midnight the night before so I really didnt want to go crazy and then mess it up. It's a little too simple looking, but none of the other fondant accessories I had planned had worked right.
Also, I used my new black foil cupcake liners, they are so fancy. And mixed with the blue gingham cupcake wrappers, really made it match with the Alice theme.
