Flashback: Alice in Wonderland Video Game Launch Party

ET INSPIRED by our trip down the rabbit hole and into Wonderland! Last year while Cupcake and Cookie Confections was still up and running, we helped out with the launch of Disney's Alice in Wonderland video game party. I thought I'd take a trip down memory lane and show you the cute setup, in case you didn't get a peep over at the old website.


Brightly colored paper lanterns were key to setting a Wonderland tea party atmosphere.


All of the tables had cute cake stands stocked with sweets, cold pitchers of tea, vintage tea cups and saucers, fresh-picked flowers, lace, and more paper lanterns:


I'm also offering some vintage Wonderland-inspired teacups and saucers for purchase if you're interested! Contact me at to work out prices, shipping, and all that good stuff.

Hope you have lots of fun planning your party!

Love & Smiles,

Mini Mouse

MAYBE IT'S too early to be thinking about it, but I have absolutely no idea what I am going to do or be for Halloween this year. The super Halloween extravaganza my boyfriend's family usually goes all out for (i.e. glowing quinine, 10 foot bat props, trick bathroom mirrors, and real blood in the drinks--just joking about the last one.) is not happening this year, much to my dismay.

No worries though; I've resolved the most serious matters, and that is making something delicious. Last year Nick's mom and I made these mini chocolate cherry mice resting in a cage of toasted coconut shavings. They may make an appearance again this year. :)

I've also got a decent number of costume ideas lined up. Two years ago I was a cluster of purple grapes, and last year I was a mail order bride. This year I'm aiming to scare. I'll try to do a proper post once the date actually rolls around. 

What are all your plans? :)
