When my daughter announced she wanted an Alice in Wonderland party this year, I was overjoyed! I had instant visions of a Mad Hatter’s tea party on our porch in the sunshine and turning our backyard into a croquet pitch. Together, we planned a gorgeous event for all of her friends, filled with lots of unique touches. Here’s Penny’s Alice in Wonderland party for your pleasure.
Gorgeous Mad Hatter’s Tea Party accents were used to bring the theme to life. My favourite are the Utterly Scrumptious Canape Flags from Pink Frosting Party Shop that have the cute tea party sayings printed on them in sorbet colours – Eat Me! Delectable! Take One! Who could possibly resist?
We also loved the idea of bringing in some of Penny’s favourite parts of the story such as the Queen of Hearts and her deck of cards! We strung together a deck of cards back to back with fishing line in between, creating a deck of cards garland. While the wind doesn’t show this particularly well in our photos, it looked great and was a real hit. Penny’s favourite line? “Why, you’re nothing but a deck of cards!”
The kids also made some amazing daisies for the verandah. We took some timber cutouts of flowers and decorated them with different scrapbooking papers from Spotlight. Then the kids added stickers and some of their own drawings. We tapped them into the side of the balcony to add a gorgeous backdrop to the garden setting.
The gorgeous cake was made by the talented Sally from Vanderkamps. It featured a main teapot cake and lots of little teacups for individual charm. The cakes were delicious and simply gorgeous!
And here are some gorgeous photos of the kids enjoying the party fare.
