A quick post today to announce the Alice in Wonderland party favor package winner. While we’re back down the rabbit hole, I’ll also show you a Queen of Hearts Roses and Teacup grapevine wreath.
Back in June, during the Unbirthday Party Reveal I announced my first blog giveaway. New subscribers and existing followers who left a comment through Labor Day were registered to win.
First, welcome to all new followers of Debbee’s Buzz. I hope you’ll find it’s your cup of tea! And special thanks to all those who left comments over the summer. I love conversing with you!
Congratulations to Leanne Hlavka of Arizona, the lucky winner of the giveaway. The package includes all the same favors I gave my guests, including; a teacup fascinator, Mad Hatter hand-painted goblet, flamingo shopping bag, and vintage teacup filled with goodies. See them all at How to Make Whimsical Teacup Fascinators and Alice in Wonderland Table and Party Favors.
Although I have a number of Alice in Wonderland party stories still to write, I’ll be spacing them out — focusing on more seasonal topics. But, while we’re on the subject, here’s the grapevine wreath that welcomed guests to the Unbirthday Party.

Welcome to Wonderland Grapevine Wreath
This is the grapevine wreath I made to decorate the black front door and welcome guests to the party. It would also make a great Valentines Day decoration with those red hearts and roses. What do you think?
After overnight torrential rain that nearly washed out Wonderland, the sun was shining for the Unbirthday Party festivities.
The glare was so bright, it’s hard to see details of the beautiful, vintage teacup.
I was absolutely thrilled when I found the vintage teacup at Goodwill. To attach it to the grapevine wreath, I used plate hanger hardware from Michaels.
The petite cup may have been from a child’s set, but I suspect it’s really a demitasse cup?
Finding that vintage teacup is what led me to make this second wreath to decorate for the party.
Two Wonderland Wreaths Better Than One
Initially, I only had success finding one small teacup. That became the centerpiece for the first Fanciful Alice in Wonderland Theme Wreath.
Armed with a second teacup, I made the second wreath on a grapevine ring wrapped with a faux red rose garland. Ribbons and embellishments were leftover from other Alice in Wonderland Party decorations I crafted earlier.
I went back and forth, trying to decide which wreath would hang on the black exterior door, versus the white interior door in the kitchen.
In the end, the heavier grapevine wreath was better supported on the solid front door.
I used many of the same ribbon and embellishments on both wreaths, including red roses, a paint-dipped paint brush, and white key.
And, a Queen of Hearts wreath naturally required a crown to denote royalty.
