The Alice In Wonderland party was a great success and we had gorgeous weather! I think it was the hottest day of the year so far!
Above, you can see a small coffee table with an old tea set I found in a charity shop and my 3 tired fruit basket which had little favours of tea bags and candy pouches for guests to enjoy.
The children at the party really enjoy the mini pick and mix bar. The sweets were mostly from a pound shop or on special offer from the supermarkets so weren't too expensive. At the back there are two fish bowl vases with lollipops and marshmallows and a old glass sweet stand from the charity shop. I also used popcorn treat boxes and food trays from my Wonderland range. Small candy bags and tongs were bought from Amazon.
Delicious red cake pops were also a huge hit with the little ones. You can also see two large tin buckets which we used for popcorn and crisps.
I'm not much of a flower arranger but I'm really pleased with the arrangements I did using teapots and these tea cup garden decorations. Once again, I kept prices down by buying these from a pound shop and I simply repainted them to match the colour scheme.
Some bunting from the Wonderland range.
This juice dispenser was a great find at John Lewis. The kids really liked the fact they could get their own drink without having to have an adult open up tight lids on bottles.
Cute mini tea set in a spotty suitcase! Perfect for decorating this party.
This is a selection canvases my daughter painted. They should have hanging around the marquee but it was quite windy and the sides were blowing in a lot so we decided it was safer if they went on the ground.
My friend made these cool signs which we nailed to a tree!
Theo as the Doormouse posing in my photobooth frame! Nienna and Lorien added some red hearts for the occasion.
And that's me!! But anyway.... quickly moving on something far prettier...
Here's Nienna as the White Queen!
And finally, napkins with the napkin rings from The Wonderland collection.
So there you have it... my Wonderland Tea Party. I hope it has helped to inspire you with some ideas which are pretty easy to pull off even on a budget.
