I didn't know parties like this existed in the "real world." It reminds of an Alice in Wonderland birthday party or something I would read about in a book and say, "Ah...if only those were real." HOW FUN!

This looks like such a special day....is there any chance you could share with us what quilt pattern is on the wall with the "love and hearts?" It would be the perfect project to begin for next year. Thanks!
