Decorating the venue is the main focus of our efforts at the minute: we want the whole venue to have a massive visual impact on our guests, and for the wonderland theme to really shine through straight away. Because prop hire is so expensive, we've been looking at DIY ways we can achieve this, and my mum came up with the genius idea of making the classic Alice in Wonderland this way/that way signs. Using a little paint and a sheet of my beloved MDF, this is what i've come up with so far:
This sheet full of signs will make its way to chez mama and papa, where each will be cut out and secured to a large wooden post. I'm going to put it in the venue atrium, so that it will be one of the first things people see when they arrive!
Other prop ideas i'm working on is a white rabbit cut out (complete with pocket watch) and i'm really love an oversized teacup or teapot, but i'm still working out the best way to achieve it. Progress is good though, and the invites go out next week: exciting!!
Love, Tor x
