Alice in Wonderland "Unbirthday" Party.
by Moonlight & Whimsy
Alice in Wonderland Dessert Table
My daughter Laura is the "luckiest girl in the world". Or so she keeps telling me, after her 11th birthday party, held on Sunday the 15th of November, 2010.
She is mildly obsessed with Alice in Wonderland (in every incarnation - animated and Tim Burton alike), so we decided to put on a small tea-party for her and a small group of close friends. You can bet that it was the talk of the class the next day!
Ribbon chandelier with a selection of blue and white lanterns waved gently in the breeze. White/covered chairs tied with blue sashes (with exception of Mad Hatter and Red Queen's chairs - tied with brown silk sashes). A mixture of scattered cushions were provided for non-padded chairs.
Red and white feather butterflies dotted with red and white spotted mushrooms adorned the chairs.
A splash of Laura's favourite colour accented the table. Lavender feather butterflies were hot-glued onto wires, and placed into flower arrangement with red and white spotted mushrooms.
Lavender felt candle-holders also gave a lovely splash of colour. White lace trimmed with red heart ribbon, lined the table.
Red "jelly shots" with blue/red heart motif on "Drink Me" labels were set out for the guests as were ribbon sandwiches with blue/red heart motif on "Eat Me" labels.
A selection of "Alice in Wonderland" inspired games were played including Croquet, Mad Tea Cups, 52 Pick-up and Card Toss. The birthday girl is pictured here with the Red Queen and the Mad Hatter.
A variety of drinks were served including Red Queen lemonade and Mad Hatter iced tea.
There was also a red and blue themed dessert table complete with ribbon chandelier, flag bunting, cupcakes, assorted candy, cake pops and red heart cookies!
Guests were able to take home leftover candy in their very own candy bag at the end.
