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!


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

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.

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!


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.
