Hold an Alice in Wonderland Tea Party | Tea Parties

Since we are so close to Halloween, wouldn’t it be fun to hold a dress-up Alice in Wonderland–or Mad Hatter–tea party for adults or children.

Meredith Sweetpea just adores a good themed tea party!

Alice in Wonderland Tea Party ideas

Alice in Wonderland Invitations:

  • Create a teacup- or teapot-shaped invitation telling your guests not to be late for a “very important date.”
  • You can address them from the Queen herself, the White Hare, or Alice.

Dress Up Ideas for your Alice in Wonderland Tea Party

  • Your guests can dress as characters from Alice in Wonderland–or their interpretation of those characters. You may assign each guest a different character to portray and let them design a costume that represents the character.
  • Your guests can come dressed in their best “Alice in Wonderland” outfits.
  • You can hand out rabbit ear headbands for your guests to wear.

Setting the Mad Hatter Tea Table

  • Create a long table and decorate it with teapots and teacups of all sizes.
  • Put a stuffed mouse into one of the teapots to represent the Dormouse.
  • If you have pink lawn flamingos, what a perfect time to use them.
  • Use a stuffed cat to represent the Cheshire Cat.
  • Use chairs of different sizes so that guests will sit at different heights.
  • Put a hand mirror on the table to represent The Looking Glass.
  • Decorate with red and white roses, and a red and white theme.
  • Set one or more copies around of the Alice in Wonderland books as part of your table decorations.

Alice in Wonderland Tea Party Games

  • If you can find hedgehog-shaped plush toys (such as those by Beanie Babies), you can use them as the balls for a game of croquet. Otherwise, set up a regular croquet game on the lawn.
  • Set up your pink flamingo yard stakes around the game, you can even use them as wickets.
  • Play chess. Mark out a large chess board on your lawn and have your guests be the players. A designated player can call out each move.
  • Play “Pin the Grin” on the Cheshire Cat (a variation of “Pin the Tail on the Donkey.”)
  • Have your guests read silly riddles.
  • Paint your own teapots.
  • Play Forfeits.

Food and Drink at your Alice in Wonderland Tea Party

  • Label bottles and plates with “Eat Me” and “Drink Me” labels
  • Serve toast and jam
  • Have card-shaped cookies decorates with the different suit symbols: diamond, cloverleaf, spade and heart.
  • Have hard boiled eggs.
  • Serve scones and lemon curd.
  • Serve Queen of Hearts tarts.
  • Serve decorative tea sandwiches.
  • Serve tea.
