You know how we love to host elegant and beautiful weddings here at Cross Creek Ranch. In fact we continue to win awards and earn amazing reviews from our couples….But you may not know that we have hosted some pretty spectacular birthday parties here too! Yep we can totally transform the Carriage House Stable from elegant affair to a playful space full of color.
A Mad Hatter Party for Two Special Girls…
We love hosting all types of events; and obviously we love producing world class weddings, but we also love hosting just-as-special smaller events; such as this exceptional Mad Hatter Birthday Party for two very special birthday girls.
Bonnie and her design team had so much fun creating this fun, playful and colorful event. Just give Bonnie a theme and she will take it over the top!
All the kids (and adults) were invited to come in costume for a special Mad Hatter Birthday Celebration. The little people were treated to the story of Alice in Wonderland and then they opened the “regular” door and were surprised to find a little door just their size. They walked through and were just in awe of all the bright colors and themed decor!
We brought out ALL the color for this party theme! Just another incredible benefit of having a world class wedding venue floral department at your fingertips. Our design team pulled all the bright colored flowers and created such fun centerpieces and table decorations. We had our fancy tea cups that we use for our bridal showers as well as some of our beautiful candelabras, platters, frames, etc. all at our disposal to create magic in such a festive way!
As we have shared before, Bonnie, the owner and visionary of Cross Creek Ranch, loves repurposing items. One of her favorite sayings is “IF it doesn’t work, just spray paint it and start over!” Well she went “thrifting” and found lots of odd tea pots and candle sticks…here they are with fun paint and topped with glitter.
And did we mention the games to play? The kiddos really had fun with croquet, bowling and fishing. Believe me they worked up an appetite and were happy to dig into a great lunch. (This lavish affair was obviously hosted in pre-covid times :).
And then the desserts! Oh my, yes the dessert table was enjoyed by all.
All the guests (adults included) had such a great time and the birthday girls were just over the moon! They even received gift bags to take home. Only concern… I’m not sure how you could ever top this birthday celebration… 🙂
