Many people love the magical feeling that Alice in Wonderland gives them, and it's an awesome way to host an extraordinary birthday party that everyone will enjoy and never forget. Whether you're a child or a full grown adult, this theme can make for a really cool party, and one that is filled with fun and excitement! Here are some ideas for you to put on an unforgettable Alice in Wonderland birthday party.
A really unique way to send out invitations is to attach a small key to them. Much like the book when Alice uses a key to open the mysterious doors, these little keys would make a cute addition to your invitation. You can find decorative keys at most craft stores, or even peruse your local thrift store for some old keys. Attach the keys to the invitation with a ribbon, and ask your guests to join you in "going down the rabbit hole"!
"Drink Me" Beverages
Use some small bottles and tie a piece of paper to them with the words "Drink Me" on them. Inside the bottles you can serve anything from fruit punch to soda, and it makes the drinks look much more inviting and unique. If you like, serve a variety of different colored fruit juices in each bottle so that they are all a mystery.
Tea Party Time
For the table setting, use wildly patterned table cloths and set the table with a wide assortment of fun and funky tea cups and saucers. They don't have to match either! Just like the Mad Hatter part of the book, you can create a really unique tea party theme complete with pastries, tea and coffee, and really fun dishes. If the weather holds, set the table using a long dining table so that everyone can sit together, and hang up paper lanterns for lighting.
Here are some cute Alice in Wonderland themed decorations you can include to make the birthday party stand out and be even more special:
- Place plastic pink flamingos throughout the lawn
- Buy a few decks of oversized playing cards (referencing the Queen of Hearts portion of the book)
- Place huge hats on the table that everyone can wear at the tea party like the Mad Hatter
- Create a birthday cake in the shape of Alice's dress, a large heart, or even the Cheshire Cat
- Make signs pointing to the party area saying things like "this way to Wonderland"
