There are so many really cute ideas out there for an Alice in Wonderland party, but they either look like sooo much work or are extremely expensive. So I'm trying to put together a cute yet affordable tea party.
Print your invitation to look like a card or you could do it to look like an official scroll from the queen! I literally whipped this baby out in about 5 min. (super easy) But you could get really elaborate and fancy too. You could also actually print the invitation on a playing card.
You could do something like a 3 teared tea set...
Or the mad hatter...I love this one, but let's face it, not something I would be able to do....
Or if you can't bake like me...and do something as simple as little toadstool cupcakes... more my speed.
Make giant cards using poster board and cutting (or drawing) large hearts, spades, clubs and diamonds on them.
Open black umbrellas and hang them around, lawn flamingos, signs pointing every which way saying Don't go this way, wrong way, down, that way and Tulgey Wood.Table decorations of course you will need all sorts of not matching tea sets. You could get these at a thrift store or a dollar store. It would also be fun to have a few really big cups (the kind used for soup) and some tiny ones. Lots of flowers, clocks or watches, playing cards and little paper lanterns or lights strung over the table. Games:
Croquette (of course) This is a cute idea....Pin the rose on the bushes or Pin the grin on the Cheshire cat.Mad Hatter says (Simon says)
House of cards (for older kids) Set a timer for 5 min and see which group gets their card house the highest.
Musical chairs: Playing the un-birthday song from Disney's Alice in Wonderland
Follow the rabbit: Take turns letting the kids be the white rabbit and let them play follow the leader around the yard.
Silly hats from the dollar store or the party supply store, such as crowns, beanies and mad hatter hats. Tea sets from the dollar store. Giant suckers, drinks that say "drink me" and cookies that say "eat me"
