Julia of Festa com Gosto, an event styling company in Brazil, planned this Alice in Wonderland 25th birthday party for her dear friend, Luini. Julia created this whimsical party inspired by Luini’s favorite book and combined it with clocks, specially referring to Dali’s in his famous painting “The Persistence of Memory.”
From Julia: “We used primarily lots of quotes from the book that were significant for the birthday girl, like Alice’s conversation with the Cheshire Cat about which way to choose and how to get where you need to go (which I’ve always thought was brilliant). We used dear rabbits and clocks, lots of them, that are part of who Luini is, always keeping time in check. The event was held at her grandmother’s house, a very rustic place with lots of personality that really shaped the party decor. We used Alice’s blue dress tone in some of the details and decided to favor the Queen of Heart’s red and black using a personalized deck of cards around the party.”
“Isa Herzog Cake Designer created all the desserts for this party and every sugar detail was as beautiful as ever making the dessert table the focal point of the event. In addition to a red velvet cake, we had peanut butter cookies, miniature chocolate and buttercream cupcakes, macarons, decorated cookies and truffles. And we can’t forget Brazilian’s most beloved dessert: brigadeiros! The birthday girl fell in love with the decorations and the party brought together everyone she loves.”
