We fell down the rabbit hole for our movie night into the fantastical world of Wonderland. Alice in Wonderland is a timeless classic your entire family will enjoy! Filled with unforgettable characters, brilliant animation, and spectacular songs.
“We celebrated Alice’s 67th Anniversary by having a whimsical Very Merry Unbirthday tea party! The kids helped make Disneyland inspired Cheshire Cat Treats and my favorite Chicken Salad Sandwiches.
We decorated our table with several copies of Alice in Wonderland and the prettiest bouquet of flowers from Disney Family. Click here to print your own bouquet. Not only are they cute, they are pollen-free! I’m ridiculously allergic to flowers, so this is amazing! The icing on the cake, literally, was our cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcakes. Each cupcake is a piece of art and the perfect combination of cake and icing. If you ever have the chance to try one, do so! The only problem, you’ll compare every other cupcake with theirs and NONE will ever measure up!
The kids loved singing ‘A Very, Merry Unbirthday To You’ to each other and being able to blow out the candles. Afterwards, Brandon read them Babylit’s ‘Alice in Wonderland Color Primer and ‘Alice in Wonderland Meets the White Rabbit’. We found a coolest hidden gem in our vintage Little Golden Book! In an effort to fit ‘The Walrus and the Carpenter’ poem into the animated movie, Disney cut the scene and song featuring the Jabberwock. But kept the sinister-looking creature in the books outline and artwork.
Charlie Beth Disneybounded as Alice wearing the same blue dress we used for the Blue Fairy and added a frilly apron from Hobby Lobby. All we were missing was the black Mary Janes. But that didn’t stop her from twirling her way thru the house, grocery store and library. Gideon dressed up as her Majesty’s White Rabbit. He wore a pair white shorts and red shirt, then borrowed his sister’s Easter bunny ears and fathers pocket watch. It might not be spot on, but it’s just enough to bring the magic alive and make them feel special. I was able to pull my outfit together with random things around the house also. I borrowed my daughters crown headband, folded and bedazzled a Queen of Hearts playing card and taped it to the crown. I wore a simple black shirt, pair of red shorts, and shiny red earrings, to complete the Queen of Hearts outfit. The kids got a big kick out of it when I yelled “Off with their heads!” when they wouldn’t listen to me.
‘Alice in Wonderland’ has so many whimsical and creative ways to enjoy it. It was hard to pick just a few! You could make ‘Eat Me’ sugar cookies, play croquet, read the original book, make Mad Hatter hats, paint the roses red, etc… How would you add a bit of magic to your movie night?
We had such a magical evening! I hope you enjoyed following along! I would love to know how you add magic to your ‘Alice in Wonderland’ Movie Night! Comment below or tag @amagicalkingdomcalledhome on Facebook or Instagram to share!

You created a “WONDERLAND” at home. Wish I was there. Besides the movie, I think I would have enjoyed eatting all the goodies.
What a wonderful idea for a movie night. I had a Golden Book like that growing up, (might still have it somewhere?) You really put an effort into making it special for the kids. I’m not a mom, and my niece and nephews are grown, but this almost makes me wish I could do something similar for some kids. 🙂
Awe! Thank you! It’s such a cool book, especially with the Jabberwocky appearance. I love bringing the movies and books alive for my kids. That’s such a high compliment, thank you!

It’s funny, but I don’t remember the Jabberwocky in mine. Perhaps, I had a slightly different edition? Still, that is a cool detail in your copy. 🙂
