Mad Hatters Tea Party
Don’t be late for a very important date!
Join Alice, the March Hare and the Mad Hatter,
For an afternoon of tea, charm and chatter,
Bring your best hat to sip tea,
And enjoy a touch of madness with me.
Take your friends for a trip down the rabbit hole with a fun and frivolous Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, inspired by the classic story of Alice in Wonderland. This theme suits both the young and the young at heart with the children running around chasing the March Hare and finding all the chocolate eggs he leaves in his trail, while the adults sip on tea, punch and pink champagne and enjoy a game of croquet in the garden on a sunny afternoon.
In Alice in Wonderland, The Mad Hatter and the March Hare enjoy afternoon tea every day. What a wonderful way to pass the time! Alice blue, pale pink with touches of red for the Queen of Hearts is a wonderful colour scheme for this theme, with a backdrop of love heart lanterns and balloons, oversized teapots filled with enormous flowers and the Mach Hare about to run down the rabbit hole.
For this children's party we have styled the table with pale blue linen and then layered pink doily love heart placemats with pink floral cake plates, pale blue teacups and saucers and silver teapot teaspoons for the place settings. Oversized teacups are placed upside down and stacked high with the top one filled with sweets. Pink lemononade is poured from light blue tea and coffee pots with a special love heart teapot for the Queen of Hearts. Mismatched plates, teacups, saucers and teapots in an array of colours also works wonderfully for this theme.
Serve pink cupcakes in different sizes, scones with jam and cream, mad hatter cookies, ribbon sandwiches, coconut ice, jelly teacups, toffee apples, ice cream sherberts and an assortment of colourful lollies served in oversized teacups and candy jars. And don’t forget the jam tarts for the Queen of Hearts!
Add a touch of humour with little tags that say ‘eat me’ and ‘drink me’ alongside a spectacular selection of cakes and drinks.
