Party Recap

I adore Willy Wonka...when I introduced it to my kids they fell in love...who would not love a factory with trees of made with sweets and a chocolate waterfall?! Then it came to me...how cool would it be if we used it for my son's bday theme...and handed out chocolate bar invites with golden tickets! Then it spiraled out of control from there. Hope you enjoy some highlights from the party...visit Serendipity Creative!

Invites will be available at Serendipity in a few weeks...through their etsy store.
