Party Recap

Jolie had taken a liking to tea parties and dressing up, so I thought what better than a Mad Hatter Tea Party. She had seen Alice in Wonderland and had enjoyed it, so it seemed like the perfect fit. We started with Jolie's dress. My mother-in-law and I worked together to recreate Alice's dress from the cartoon version. But, instead of blue, we did hot pink with a turquoise tutu under the dress. It turned out better than I could have ever imagined, especially as my first ever sewing project. Next, I started focusing on the decorations. I looked to the cartoon for more inspiration. Lots of lanterns, tea pots, pinwheels, tea cups, flamingos, butterflies, signs, and different colored fabrics. For Favors, I made Mad Hatter Hats that were like Chinese take out boxes with tea cup crayons, glow sticks, and other goodies. Tea Party Activities included Paint your own tea cup, Decorate your own Teapot Frame, Flamingo Croquet, and Design your own Mad Hatter Hat.

    Thank you! Yes, I was having a hard time finding the size and color I wanted because they were so expensize, so I found one the size I wanted and then I used it as my template on poster board and then glued the ribbon around and the bottom. At first they took a lot of time, but once I got the hang of it, it wasn't too bad. And they were so much cheaper than buy the actual boxes!

    It looks like a great party. You did an amazing job. I am wondering where you found the tea cups that you let the kids paint? I was also thinking of letting the kids paint their own cup, but having a hard time finding affordable cups. Thanks!
