On Monday night I hosted a Mad Hatter Tea Party. It was a lot of fun and thank you to everyone who came. Here are some lovely photos from the night as well as the party plan :)
Theme: Alice in Wonderland (the book, not the movie)
Location: My upper deck (think almost tree fort since it is amoungst tree branches)
Food: Chocolate Peanutbutter Squares, Chocolate Eclair Squares, Buttertarts, Pavlova and Yogurt Chantilly, Raspberries, and Cherries (with chocolate chips)
Tea: Raspberry Chocolate tea, Red Vanilla tea, Orange Manderin Spice tea
Main Decorations: Card Chandileer (I made it and it took forever to sew all the cards together!), Eat Me and Drink Me cards on the food, Various Tea Pots, Cardboard Pink Flamingos, The Cheshire Cat (it was a cardboard smile hanging in the corner, see picture below), Flowers (I had roses on the table and then some other flowers around the edges), Christmas lights
Music: 1930's Swing cd. Later on I wanted to play a Bing Crosby cd and everyone else wanted Lady Gaga.... I won.
And here are some of the many pictures (it looked even cooler when it got dark and the glass droplets on the table, and the mirrors on the chandileer, were sparkling):
And here are some pictures of my outfit. The hat was just a plain white beach hat but I added a feather boa, some pink faux flowers and a sparkley butterfly to make it more fun.
I made everyone wear a hat :)
Best hat of the evening:
