Follow Friday – Angela’s Mad Hatter Tea Party Birthday

Last weekend my friend Angela decided to celebrate her birthday by throwing an Alice in Wonderland-style Mad Hatter Tea Party. My friends love any excuse to dress up, myself and Anthony included. Hats and fascinators were encouraged, and Valerie ended up making her and her daughter’s, and since I am on a budget, I made my hair accessory, too. Here’s my tutorial in two parts. I also worked some thrifting magic on my outfit. Here are some the photos from the party. It was an excellent time.

Have a great weekend!
