We just returned from our Mad Hatter reception. We had alot of fun!

There were about 30 people there.
Chris's aunt and uncle and 3 married cousins, Tina and Shaniqua from Austin, my friend Val. My family and two of my brothers friends.

We had:
Chicken, Ribs, hamburgars, hot dogs, baked beans, corn, chips, 3 kinds of potato salad.

The best cake ever! Here are a few pics.

Favors were votive holders with candy flowers, bubbles, favor bags with colored M&M's.

I have to say this was a blast. I'm alittle sad it is all over.

Hey Laura!! Everything turned out SO CUTE! The cake was adorable. She did as well as Disney does with their own Mad Hatter Cake :thumbsup2 I love the tea cup cupcakes! What a cute idea. I'll have to steal that one :) :) You and Chris looked like you had a blast. I'm so glad you got to enjoy this party and extend your wedding fun for a little while :goodvibes

Laura, I"m catching up on your planning journal and this - I have both screen open! With you, Jen and Karen, I am never going to sleep - but then again, this is what happens to teachers over the summer - it's like letting a dog out of their cage!

You are SUPER creative and my hand is tired of cutting and pasting all your fabulous ideas! ;) I love pink, too!

I just had to post to compliment your Aunt's cake. Please tell her what a fabulous job she did and that she has tons of fans! She could so patent her design. The fact that she added little teacups is just amazing!!

I went to a bridal shower that was a "tea" when I was about 10, so I have always fantasized about one myself. I LOVE yours! Beautiful!

I can't believe that your aunt made that cake! It's so unique! Is that her profession?

I'm jealous that even after your magical wedding and reception at Disney, the fun still wasn't over and you had an at-home reception!

I also LOVE that even at this event you have Chris matching you. TOO CUTE! I think it's great that he does this for you...what a guy!

I am so impressed with the cake and mini tea cup cakes. Your aunt is very talented, it must run in the family! Is the handle on the tea cups made out of fondant? All of a sudden I'm in the mood to bake... one of my friends needs to get married or have a baby so I can plan something :rolleyes1.

Yes they are. The teacup is made out of the baseball pan and the tea cups out of the mini baseball pan. It was a ton of cake.
