Thanksgiving in Wonderland

Some of you might know that I usually go over to my friend Mari’s house for Thanksgiving, and remember that last year she had a Harry Potter theme. This year she went with Alice in Wonderland, and her friends, Angie and Paul, hosted the dinner at their place.

Even though I’ve had the good fortune to experience Mari’s theme extravaganzas for twenty years now, my jaw never fails to drop whenever I see the magnificence she creates. These pictures, taken by her, only capture a small portion of the magic of being there, but I wanted to share them so you can come along with me on the journey down the rabbit hole.

Hope your Thanksgiving was more wonderful than your highest expectations.

More gorgeous than mad

Everyone was on time for tea, er, dinner when all this awaited

    Thank you, everyone. The adjectives you used—crazy cool, wild, magical, amazing, stunning, etc.—are all apt.
