Paper doll stickers and a candy necklace
and handmade (by Alice, not me) flower cookies, packaged in polkadot bags
I kept the favours much more simple this year. I loved going to all that effort last year, but I wasn't feeling it this time around.
Packaged in glassine bags from Pop Roc Parties, with a little floral bag of old-fashioned sweets to take home too...
I chose the theme several months ago, and ran through lots and lots of ideas for what I might do with it. In the end I referenced the books in these ways: red and yellow jellies (as MMM had at the birthday party she went to), blackberry tea-cups, an Eleanor-as-MMM illustration I created for the invites & printable hats (I never actually sent the invites :-/), and Eleanor's red and white striped dress - which was actually just a happy, thrifted accident. Other than that, we did our best to stick to a similar era for most of the decorations, which were all from my collection.
Fruit cups, with a little surprise at the bottom
Free printables :-)
Some Pinspiration I used: Toffee Apples with twigs as sticks, Posie Gets Cozy's gorgeous cake, washi tape flags, party hats.
