Somewhere Over the Rainbow

I took my girl to see "The Wizard of Oz" last weekend. She loved it!


She and I even made a special dress to wear- Glinda is her favorite character.



 Wouldn't it be great to have a "Wizard of Oz" party?!

The Wicked Witch of the East- cupcakes


Party favors- Dorothy boxes and Scarecrow buckets


Red slippers for the little girls


Let's just hope Afton is still a fan by the time her birthday rolls around again- because with all of these ideas, the party is basically planned! Plus, I am dying for these shoes :)




Doesn't it always come down to the shoes?
Have a great Memorial Day Weekend.

  1. I absolutely LOVE this post! My b'day is in August. Oh, I mean my daughter's b'day is in October! Who wouldn't want to be dressed up like Glenda?

  2. Oh, what terrific inspiration! My daughter was a WOZ fan for years. She wore her Dorothy dress and rubby shoes to the Youth Theatre performance. She had a big WOZ Birthday party of course and several family members dressed as characters. I was Glenda and made my hat from an acetate sheet. I used an old 80's style prom dress for GW with giant bubble sleeves that I stuffed paper into to keep puffy. There was a lady back then who used to make the character dolls for a really cheap price, but they looked just like the Barbie WOZ collection. Each character had a station with an activity like face painting and rainbow t-shirts. We even made a yellow brick road for the floor and a large card board mural for a photo back drop. Luckily she was a fan for years and I was able to save many of the decor items for her WOZ bedroom. Sadly, she is going to be 17 this August. :( However, I showed her your post and of course she wants another WOZ themed party. Some things they just never outgrow. (BIG SMILE)
