You’re never too old for a Disney Surprise Party!!

*Warning: This post will be massively photo heavy…sorry!!*

So you may remember I mentioned that last weekend it was one of my best friends, Charley’s 21st birthday!! A couple of weeks ago, my friend Rosie and I had had a message from Charley’s younger sister Izzy asking if we would like to come to a surprise Disney 21st birthday party for Charley and if we could help out a little. Of course we said YES! Disney is just about Charley’s favourite thing ever (and mine!) so it was just perfect!! They organised a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in the village hall, and we had proper party games like Pass the Parcel and Apple Bobbing, then headed to the pub for a while before going back up to Charley’s house for the after party in their holiday cottage (seriously, the best place ever for parties, I’ve spent many awesome nights there!). And so here are the pictures of the afternoon and evening, and I’ll add some captions for you! So above are mine and Ben’s costumes when we tried them on before the party =) I’m Alice in Wonderland and Ben is the Mad Hatter!

Rosie as Pocahontas and Fran as the Queen of Hearts
Charley’s friends from uni, Tashan as Esmerelda, Robyn as Stitch and Lucy as Elizabeth Swann.
The tea party – ‘Mr Tortilla Heads’ and ‘Eat Me’ signs made by Rosie, Fran, Tashan, Robyn, Lucy and I, Mickey cupcakes made by Charley’s sister Eve.
The birthday girl’s entrance!! We all nearly died of anticipation while hidden waiting for her to arrive!!
Tez as a lion from the Lion King, Ben as the Mad Hatter, Fran and I.
Charley’s sister Izzy as Lilo and Ben.
Emily as Tiger Lily
Charley’s sister Eve as Cinderella (before!), Charley in her dress they gave her as a present as Minnie Mouse and Izzy.
Charley’s boyfriend Frankie as Mr Incredible and Charley.
Me as Alice.
Apple bobbing (I didn’t do it, didn’t want to ruin my make up!!)
Present time!
Frankie and Ben (yehhh, don’t even ask…they have an odd relationship with one another! In fact they decided to walk back from the pub and turned up an hour later all muddy, they’d fallen in a ditch…together…!!)
The Cinderella Castle cake =D
Pub photos!
Ben teaching Charley how to do ‘Blog Poses’ (he makes fun of my blog poses!!)
Told you!
Back in the holiday cottage, fun times!
Ok, I hope you’ve enjoyed my massive photo dump (sorry again!!), but I’ll be back soon with outfits =D I’ve been useless again with the weekend, next time I’m home for the weekend I’ll try and schedule posts. I’ve managed to spend my Eldon Square voucher (well £25 of it anyway!) so I have some new items I want to show you =D And I also passed Primark on the way to the station on Friday…you can probably guess what that means =S

    This piccies are amazing! Zoe let it slip to us before Charley left our house on the friday, and we were all going round biting our lips all day desperate to say ‘HAVE A GREAT PARTY!’ Looks like it was fabulous, and I LOVE your costume. Come down and see us in Leam, Charley says! 🙂

    No apology necessary; I enjoyed seeing all your friend’s costumes.

    I love themed costume parties and Disney is a good idea for one. There was an episode of Gilmore Girls back in the day where some Yale friend had a Quentin-Tarantino-themed costume party, and I’ve always wanted to do one myself.
