It is hard to believe that just a week ago I was immersed in everything "Alice". I was lucky enough to attend Kim's Alice in Wonderland Affaire at the Grand California Hotel last Friday and Saturday. It was a magnificent affaire down to the very smallest of details.
I flew into OC early Friday am and met Colleen who flew in from Oakland. From then on it was a non-stop adventure full of catching up with old friends, meeting new ones and just soaking in all that Kim had up her magical sleeve. Our adventure began with shopping at 2pm. Oh my the vendors all unique had the most wonderful wares for us to see and buy. Must say I came home with a wee bit of loot. Jamie, Christine, , Kim, Holly, Joy, Lonie and Candice had beautiful tables set up with lots of goodies to purchase.
We then proceeded to tea with the server sounding the chimes. What fun to be seated and served a Delicious tea with many courses. The food was so good.
After tea our first class with Candice. A sweet little mini album made from envelopes.
We were on our own for dinner and then to the much anticipated "Alice in Wonderland Movie". I haven't been to a movie in years so what a blast to actually be in a theater to see a movie.
I didn't take a lot of photos as Val's husband Cory was our official photographer and gifting each of us with a CD of photos
I think like everyone that attended my roomie Colleen and I had a relaxed wonderful fun weekend. We both hated heading home on Sunday
That wraps up day one. More on day 2 later
