A Teapot Cake For Alice in Wonderland

We did it!
We finally had our Alice in Wonderland Party
and it was GREAT!
Our main centre-piece was this yummy chocolate cake
from a new cake franchise "Utopia"

Solid chocolate for the lid, spout and handle.

Quite tricky to cut up for 33 people.

Some students prepared beautiful flowers to decorate.

The students planned the party
which included appropriate food.
These kebabs with marshmallows were a hit.
Fairy cakes, cupcakes and fairy bread
were top of the list
They even brought their own balloons
(colour in keeping of course)

And cut flowers from the school garden.

There were playing cards scattered over the table

And of course we had a lovely tablecloth
(they insisted)
And even chose bright plates for serving

Even these biscuits
were displayed with flair
and flowers
The students proclaimed it to be the best class party they had ever been to.
Must admit- I agree

  8. Precious Fiona, your world is indeed magical and I SO LOVE EVERYTHING THAT YOU HAVE GOING ON HERE...the whites, the grays and the chandeliers in your dream rooms just speaks volumes to me! THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS and yes, creativity is something that is innate and wonderful, and I am so grateful that I have it! My lesson in life is to always learn the SCIENCE of my craft of teaching, and that is not always easy to accomplish, especially with the changing times of education. We are enjoying our Thanksgiving holiday now and off I go to check our turkey!

    Many blessings to you and what a beautiful post!

  11. Wow, wow, wow! Fiona what a fantastic table - gosh your students must be giving thanks that they have you as their Teacher! Would I be right in assuming that you don't teach at an all-boys school?

  12. How fun! I wanted to have an Alice in Wonderland Tea Party theme party for our girls, but then I felt lazy, so I didn't have any and instead, we went away for their birthdays. It was a lot of fun, but I would love to have a tea party theme party one day...
