This party was a huge hit! We have known for months that my little one wanted to have a mad tea party. I found Paper lanterns and fans I found at Party City for only $2.99! I hung them above the table. Gave the room a great look for the mad tea party. For centerpieces on the table I found the giant tea cups and saucers at Hobby Lobby. I got two "small" ones and one huge cup. I put a dome of floral foam in each cup. The morning of the party I went to Kroger and bought 4 different looking inexpensive bouquets. I combine flowers from all the bouquets to make these mad, fun, adorable centerpieces. The dragon fly was found at Hobby Lobby also. We rented 2 long children's tables, children's chairs and bright colored table covers. It was a huge hit! All the kids were able to sit together at the same time. Having a table their height was comfortable for them, and parents weren't having to help the kids in and out of their chairs. I got all different types of tea cups from a local antique store. I found dinner plates and cake plates with tea pots and tea cups, fans shaped like tea pots, and tea cup and tea pot suckers at Oriental Trading Company. I found beautiful decorative bottles at Hobby Lobby. I didn't want all the tags to say drink me, so some of the tags had the ingredients that the White Queen says on the Johnny Depp version of Alice in Wonderland, as she is mixing the potion. And one of the tags has the name of the potion from the book. made mini top hats for all the kids to wear. The hats were a huge hit! I also made a huge topsy turvy cake for my sweet girl. On the table we had some fun little snacks for the kids. Creme Puffs, cookies, apples, strawberries, grapes, and deli spirals. The kids had so much fun! Not a single tea cup ended up broken. They had so much fun drinking apple and grape juice from them. The tea pots were found at Ross. I found fun tea pot craft foam frames at Oriental Trading Co. The kids had so much fun decorating them! We plan to send pictures of the kids in the thank you notes to put into their frames.
Cookies, creme puffs, and white cake, strawberry cake, and chocolate cake.
