Tea parties are a great idea for birthdays or for a simple get-together for girls and their friends. Girls love the idea of a party where they can dress up in tutu skirts and other costumes to have tea and cookies with friends in a decorated and imaginative setting. Decorating and setting up a tea party does not have to cost a lot of money, but can make the difference in creating a fun and exciting experience for the party attendees.
The Alice in Wonderland theme is popular for tea parties. Some of the costumes may include tutu skirts, butterfly wings, top hats, and rabbit ears. Children might also dress up as different animals like rabbits or cats to match the story theme.
Tutu skirts can be combined with various other costume add-ons such as rabbit ears and butterfly wings. There is no such thing as a perfect way to dress up for an Alice in Wonderland tea party, so be creative and have fun with the costume choices.
The decoration theme should be based on a sort of random and creative design that mimics the Mad Hatter tea party. Decorations might include paper lanterns, various teapots with different colored saucers, and “odd” furniture. The theme typically involves a lot different colors, so as many variations of color as possible can be used for the best effect.
A chess set might be put out with the board and pieces scattered about. Another idea is to decorate walls or other areas with large playing cards. Fake or real flowers are a great addition, and smaller playing cards can be used to decorate flower vases.
Playing the soundtrack from the Alice in Wonderland animated movie sets the musical scene. Food and drink ideas can be as simple as cookies and punch, or slightly more elaborate Cheshire cat, top hat, and clock-shaped cookies with decorative frosting. Gift bags filled with stickers, candy, small mirrors, or toy jewelry make great party favors.
There are many ways to go about decorating and dressing up for the party. Costumes can be as simple as tutu skirts or as elaborate as rabbit and cat-themed costumes. The most important thing is to have fun with the design and preparation of a Wonderland-themed tea party and let your imagination take care of the fine details.
