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.
