The Sexiest Alice in Wonderland Halloween Ever!

Kittens, I wasn't in the celebratory mood this summer. My life was a litterbox. But with my favorite holiday just around the corner, and romance in the air once more, I'm feeling rather frisky! Here are some great sexy costumes for your party this fall, whether yours will be private or not! Meow! These pictures are clickable, so you can get right to the shopping.... and don't tarry! You wouldn't want to be late for this very important date!

With my penchant for screaming, "Off with his head!" I've already decided to go as 
the Queen of Hearts this year... now to choose which hot option!

I love the Harajuku stylings of this Mad Hatter!

This one is reversible: perfect if you have more than one party to attend!

A nice touch of remembrance for a wedding

Kittens, it's been too long! I've been remiss in posting on this blog, as I haven't been in a celebratory mood for the last few months. My sister-in-law got engaged recently, and charged me with the task of finding a very special bit of embroidery for her gown. We lost her father a few years ago, and she wanted a private remembrance of him during the ceremony. Because his totem animal was the owl, she wants an elegantly embroidered owl for the inside of her dress. How sweet is that - and she isn't even a Chi-O (but I am)! I found several great options on Etsy. Here are some other things I am posting for her - and for him, may he rest in peace!

Had to include this one; the groom is Thai.

Brushed Metal Monogram Cake Toppers

And this one, since it's in her initials. You kittens know I'm gaga for monograms!

Seriously, how cute are these little soaps?!?

This eight-inch tall chocolate owl will be an amazing centerpiece at a shower or elsewhere!

Happy New Year Kittens

Hello from frozen Indiana, kittens. It seems my dispatches from the tundra are getting fewer and farther between these days; I'm not in a partying mood and can't bear to even think of wedding topics right now given my separation from Hubbs. Instead, I'm posting one of my favorite photos of the man in my life, my farting, snorting and chortling Valentine, the Emperor Tubba Bubba. Fat Boy sports a cloak which arrived all the way from China via a Fed Ex envelope I couldn't even decipher. This photo was taken about 4 years ago, and he has since outgrown this coat and given it to his rather svelte matching wife/tormentor. If I had a spare $150K sitting around, (damn you, recession!) I would clone him so as not to ever be without him. If I had one wish, I'd wish for a time machine so I could go back to the day I picked him up from some crazy hillbilly "breeder" and take all of his brothers and sisters home with me. Happy New Year!

Alice's Winter Wonderland Party Ideas

    Perfect for your winter extravaganza, no matter the occasion. A Winter Wonderland wedding is such a great theme, but this idea really lends itself to any elegant, whimsical occasion from December through February. I'd even consider it for a children's charity function! Of course,  I'm always looking for the perfect way to squeeze in an Alice party!

I realize I've shown these to you before, but I just love them. Imagine the way the light will bounce off of them!

Silver Beaded Place Card Frame

Form and Function. Every kittytastic shindig has a seating chart. I know, it's very Red Queen of me, but I want everyone to be perfectly matched for ultimate enjoyment at my tables.

Big fan of the monogram. If you are as well, take a look at Cathe Holden's website, Just Something I Made. Holden fashions typography you just can't believe!

Excellent, inexpensive Winter Wonderland favors or prizes.

Another cute, inexpensive option!

I've never met a cookie I didn't like!

Perfect for a shower; under $6.00, you can give each guest an adorable little gift. Put a little note inside. Very Alice!

I can't help being a little preoccupied with table topiaries! We had them at our own wedding about a bagillion years ago. Sometimes I'll be at an Auntie's or a friends, and see one of them tucked into a china cabinet or hoarded in a little drawer. Your florist should be able to point you in the right direction for renting large, or in our case, giant topiaries should you take this one all the way.
