Come With Me . . . and You'll See . . .

We enjoyed Laura Beth's book club so much the other night.  We have not met since the first of November because of the holidays, so we chose a longer book for the girls to read, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  I had a great time planning this one, but wish I had had a little more time (and energy) to put into this one.  I had ideas brimming over!!!!  Here is a look at the night . . .

I used odds and ends from party supplies in the party supply closet to create the table.  I thought it turned out so cute.  The girls LOVED the different colors of plates, napkins and silverware.  Each place also had a box of Wonka candy (of course) and Fizzy Lifting Drink (which actually isn't in the book but HAD to have it!) - aka Sierra Mist.

No Wonka party is complete without candy EVERYWHERE!!!! I used ice cream sundae dishes that were filled with Nerds, Gobstoppers, and Sweet Tarts.  In each dish were Wonka (or Ronald Dahl) quotes that I loved.

 Vases filled with Wonka candy also graced the table.

The girls and the table

For our menu, I wanted to get as close to Wonka world as possible, so we had a fondue night.  Cherri was a great help with the food for the night. Here she is explaining to the girls what would take place.

Wonka Menu

French Bread cubes, broccoli, carrots,
pretzel rods and apple slices

Chocolate Fondue
(Grease pot with butter. Add 6 oz. of choc. chips and 1 cup of marshmallows and 2 tbsp of milk. 
Heat until melted on med-low heat. Stir constantly to make sure it does not burn on the bottom.

Fizzy Lifting Drinks

We had a wonderful, magical night filled with sweetness on EVERY level.
We are excited about our next book that takes us to Paris!
