St. Joe Ball -Alice In Wonderland Theme

Well, another year of a great committee decorating the bathrooms at the St. Joe Ball (or more formally called the Lounges).  This year, the theme was Alice in Wonderland and raised almost $800,000 for the NICU department at St. Joe Hospital in Ann Arbor.   We had many highlights in our decorations including a graffiti artist from Detroit (SINTEXT) creating the shrinking room, a silhouette artist, Isabel from  Cut Away- Art by Isabel Talsma on Etsy, making four commission silhouettes of Alice (check out her work, it is pretty amazing!), and a Queen of Hearts dress made out of duct tape by my friend Jane G.  It is funny how the bathroom committee is composed of Drs., politicians, politician's wives (yes we had 2 body guards present), moms, and business people all wanting to make the ugly stadium bathrooms at little nicer.  Here are the four bathrooms we decorated.
