How to Throw an Alice in Wonderland Themed Party {tea party}

Themed Birthday Parties are so much fun, and my sister threw another excellent one, her best one yet.  If you are wanting to throw an Alice in Wonderland, tea inspired party, this post should give you plenty of ideas to get you started!

Invitation

1.  First up, the invitation:  the invitations were a Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland Custom Birthday Invitation digital file from November Blue Designs.

Decorations

Alice in Wonderland Party

2.  The decorations were amazing, and I’m not just saying that because my sister has a gift for throwing fantastic parties and because I helped set out the decorations.  The thing I loved best about them is that most of them were repurposed or recycled!

3. Banner/Bunting

  • The banners were made with pages of an old book, colored card stock, doilies and twine.  The hearts were made from 12 x 12″ card stock and old book pages.  Simply cut the paper into 1″ wide strips measuring 4″, 8″, 10″ and 12″ in length.  You can attach the hearts with double sided tape or a stapler.  Follow this detailed tutorial here.  The doily banner was so easy you don’t need a tutorial.  Purchase a pack of doilies from the $1 store, fold the doilies in half, add the strand of twine in the crease, and glue them together.
4.  Table Decorations:  the tea table was my absolute favorite.   Two long rectangular tables were put together and then covered with mis-matched lace table cloths, clocks, books, doilies, candle sticks, and the like.  The serving tea pots and china were mis matched as well.  Wondering about the chairs?  Totally mismatched. It was perfection.

Table Setting

5. Food.  The food was exactly what you’d expect at a tea party;  finger sandwiches, scones and tea, and the food didn’t disappoint.  It was delicious!

  • Tea Sandwiches {cucumber & dill, chicken salad, and turkey & cheese}
  • Fruit Skewers
  • Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze
  • Herbal Tea & Lemonade
  • Cupcakes with Printable Toppers
  • Cake Pops

Extra Touches

6. Empty Frames Photo “Center”! Rachelle painted different sized “old” frames and then set up a backdrop for some fun photo opps!  She even took things a step further and made props to add to the fun!

7.  “This Way, That Way” sign:  a signature Alice in Wonderland piece, this sign was a hit at the party.  The kids love reading the sign and posing by it for the perfect picture!

Games

Croquet cards

8.  Croquet – Because you know that an Alice in Wonderland Party wouldn’t be complete without croquet.  Aren’t the pink flamingo’s fabulous?  They were from Target’s $1 bin area.  The big playing cards are from a local party store.

And that’s How to Throw an Alice in Wonderland Themed Tea Party.

    I am going to do this for my daughters 30th Birthday Party. She has always loved Alice in Wonderland since she was a little girl. I will surprise her with this very special theme. All the suggestions are wonderful. Her birthday is in Nov so I will set our living room up as the croquette room. Bring out our outdoor cartpeting for grass. I will have alot of fun with this one. Thank you!

    One example is, should you be interested in Britax car, then you can certainly
    use a internet search engine to learn more concerning the business as a result of opinions
    as well as discussion boards. Donating to Goodwill is a simple process that takes only minutes and allows you
    to give someone less fortunate the chance to purchase something
    at a reduced price, while also benefiting yourself because a Goodwill donations value is placed on the
    items you donate, which you can write-off for tax purposes.
