Brantley & Grayson’s Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

On Saturday, we were so happy to celebrate Brantley and Grayson’s birthdays at our very favorite little local bookstore, The Story Shop in Monroe. I’ve talked about their store before, and how it is just a child’s daydream come to life.  And yes, their shop is wonderful, but their event space… …it’s incredible!  We decided to have an Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter’s Tea Party for the girls’ birthday.  Since their birthdays are less than a month apart (May 17 and[Read more]
