Hannah Alexander, mother of three, from Searcy, Arkansas, sent us in these pictures from her daughter’s ‘un-birthday’ party. We love the whole thing, from the idea to the execution. Here’s what she told us about the event:

“When you have a child whose birthday falls one day after Christmas, you are always wracking your brain to make her birthday something other than an afterthought.  So this past year we opted for an “un-birthday”.  We celebrated in July!  I’m not sure what exactly inspired me, other than wanting to celebrate Tristin’s birthday sometime other than her actual birthday, but I got a “hare” brained idea to put together an Alice in Wonderland themed un-birthday party, a mad tea party to be precise.  Maybe what inspired me was that Tristin is about to be 8, has blond curls, blue eyes, and is curiouser and curiouser with every new day…the perfect Alice.  Alice in Wonderland is such a wonderfully impossible story.  I love its nonsense and whimsy, and really, what more could you want for an almost 8 year old’s birthday party?!”

(By the way, we’d love to see your pictures—preferably horizontals—of silly, funny, clever, or otherwise show-stopping birthday cakes you or someone you know has made. And if you’re further inspired, we’d love to see the whole party. Send us an email to Please include your name, how you would like to be credited, the occasion, the recipe, and the inspiration or story behind the cake. Images must be 550×380 pixels wide.)
