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!

    Where did you find the giant playing cards for croquet?

      Rachelle says:

      I found the large cards at a local party store called Blake’s. Since the party the store has gone out of business. You might try Oriental Trading Co.

    A 2011 study published in Cochrane Reviews found evidence that zinc may also help slow up the
    severity of cold symptoms. Around 15 grams of fat per meal is known as to drastically lessen or maybe eliminate these treatment effects.

    Another missing link for the equation will be the taking the top
    v3 slimming capsules. A reputable v3 dieting pill will advertise itself
    factually, in plain language, with believable claims.

    Or, you can just flat out buy them with your real world money.

    Both games are very popular in the Apple App store and the game developer has been able to challenge the likes of EA Sports who have more than 100 games in the store.

    CHANEL(シャネル)とは何かというと、ココ・シャネルが始めたファッションブランド。元々は帽子の専門店 「シャネル・モード」の創設からスタートしました。どのバッグを買おうか悩むのは、日本女性にとって喜びのひとつ。どんな大きさのエルメスバッグ 偽物を洋服に合わせるかによって、人に与える格好のジャンルが大きく変わってきます。グッチ・シャネル・ヴィトンのファッションブランドを始め、一流バッグはやっぱり安く売っている店がありませんね。アウトレットの値段でなるべくGETしたいものです。ハイブランドを身に着けているとどうしてだか気持ちが落ち着くだけでなく、自分がちょっとしたセレブになれたような気分に。つまりは、内面から満たされているように感じると言われています。安価に入手できるだけでなく、国外の一流ブランドの商品には海外でしか手に入らない物などが数多く揃っているので、そうした珍しい商品も通信販売でダイレクトに注文できます。 http://www.msnbrand.com/goods-copy-4780.html
