Alice In Wonderland - Mad Hatter Tea Party

Alice in Wonderland and Mad Hatter

Our Alice in Wonderland, Mad Hatter Tea Party can be adjusted for teens, ladies day out and adult parties.

Some items included in this party are:
  • Menu Guide
  • Crafts for children
  • Mad Hatter Costume
  • Alice Costume
 2 croquet sets - 12 mallets - 12 flamingos attached to mallets

I purchased the smaller dark pink flamingos at a local store. They only had 9 of them so I made 3 more out of 1/4" plywood. I then purchased soft nerf type balls so they would be easier to hit with the mallets. The girls were so excited when they walked out to the patio and the 12 mallets were waiting for them.


Croquet Wickets

My sister and I created 7 croquet wickets out of 1/4" plywood. I found some of the ideas at partywishes. I found photos of the Alice in Wonderland characters, printed them out, had them blown up at our local print store, then traced them onto plywood and cut them out with a gigsaw. We then painted them both on the front and on the back. If you are standing at the back of the court, you see each characters back. It was a lot of fun and each wicket took about 8 hours.


White Rabbit Yard Sign Welcome Guests

The entryway White Rabbit is holding a clock and blowing a bugle making sure your guests know they have arrived at a party that will surely hold some surprises. The White Rabbit is also made out of 1/4" plywood. If you would like to know how I keep him up, email me and I'll tell you my secret.


Painting the Flower Red
I purchased red and white rose bushes at the local craft store. The white one's I partially painted red. I left the can and paint brush next to the bush. I had one of these located at the entrance to my home, and two in the back yard. Again, a big hit with the guests.


Mushroom Stool Chairs

I made 3 of these mushroom stool seat chairs for the party. One was stripped and two were poka-dots. These were a big hit. I placed two together in front of the Alice in Wonderland croquet court and one toward the back of the court. The back of the yard provided some beautiful shade and was also a good picture spot. I took photos of each of the girls on the mushrooms. Notice in the background the large flowers. These are artificial but look real and added to the illusion of Wonderland.




















6 Large Stacked Tea Cups

I found 6 large tea cups at 2 different local discout stores. They were meant to be planters, but are pefect for the Alice in Wonderland theme. They are ceramic and pretty heavy, and really beautiful. I placed three on the porch at the end of the table, and 3 in the yard, (out of the way of the flying croquet balls).




Mad Hater Tea Party Place Setting

The plates are sculpted and look like flowers. I found them in various colors of purple, blue, yellow, red, and pink. I added pink fabric napkins with pipe cleaner napkin rings. I then placed colorful artificial flowers into the napkins. Large tea cups were found at a local import store. Look closely and you will see a name card with a picture of the Mad Hatter Tea Party. I used business card stock and photoshopped each childs name onto the card. The children were able to take their name place cards home.


Mad Hatter Tea Party Table Setting
For our table setting, we use ceramic tea cups, fabric table cloths in your choice of pink, blue, or burgandy, napkins in various colors, napkin rings with artificial flowers, flower shaped plates (feel like Tupperware material), two 6' long tables, and tea pots in various shapes and sizes.

  2. I remember the time when we had a photo-shoot. We were all dressed up as characters from Alice in Wonderland. We gave the characters a pretty unique look which are a bit far from their original Disney looks. My sister was the Mad Hatter back then. I was the one who styled one of her Estetica wigs. My other sister was our Alice. She used one of her long Forever Young wigs for the shoot. I went as the Cheshire Cat, and my friend went as the Queen of Hearts. I really miss that photo-shoot.
