Featured Friday: Parties- Mad Hatter's Tea Party

I love how this Mad Hatter's Tea Party turned out.  The girls had so much fun!


The centerpiece is several oversized purple teacups stacked with their green saucers on top of a white cake plate.   I bought mini meringues and mini cupcakes, and stacked them around the centerpiece.  The butterflies and flamingos add a whimsical touch.  The purple "cake stands" are actually upside-down bowls and plates from the same set. I found the tea set and tea pot at World Market as well as the placemats and napkins. 


I had a plated the girls lunch and set up a different table for their sweets.  I made raspberry scones, petit fours, and 4 varieties of cookies- Chocolate Chip, Butterscotch, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut, and Candy.


The invitations were a simple card design in coordinating purple and green.


This little tea set was my inspiration for the party and the invitations.  I love the miniature size, and I am sure it is something Alice might have found in Wonderland!



The printables used for this party are available in my etsy shop.  You can get them in the Purple and Green Color Scheme or Red and Black!

  19. Brainstorming a party theme can really crack you up! In your case, you did a great job hosting this Mad Hatter party! Next time, you should include healthy tea leaves in your menu. Your guests will enjoy it's great taste and healthy benefits. :)
