Through the Looking Glass...A Mad Hatter Tea Party

"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?" - Alice, Alice in Wonderland
We love the idea of an Alice in Wonderland themed Mad Hatter Tea Party.  It can be adapted to just about any occasion - baby showers, engagement parties and, of course, children's birthday parties!  Everything about this party theme says, no screams, crazy, quirky and oh so fun!  So, let's step through the looking glass...

The herald of the party, the White Rabbit...he's late, he's late, for a very important date!

What an entrance!!

What a perfect setting for an "Un-Birthday Party," or any other kind of party for that matter!

I love this tablescape...look at the cheshire cat cups and the "eat me" tags...too cute!

These multicolored candelabras and chandeliers are on our "must, must have" list.

What a cute way to create a special place for each of your tea party guests...

and don't forget the guest of honor!

Love, love, LOVE this - especially the cookies!!

These cupcakes are so sweet, and I love the cake!

This cake is absolutely adorable, too...

But this one is a showstopper!! Definite winner!

Nevermind, it's a tie. :)

Royal Croquet Court with Wonderland character genius!!

Don't forget your mallets!!

A fun way to get everyone dressed for the occasion?  Set up a Mad Hat Station, where guests create their own crazy couture!

The poms, lanterns, butterflies and colored chandeliers combine for an absolutely gorgeous setting! And how cute are those signs?!
