The only thing better than reading Alice in Wonderland is attending a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. And the only thing better than both of those is finding all your printables in one place. We recently used this Alice in Wonderland theme for a baby shower.
We used the old playing cards as our pallet, which we found on the Wings of Whimsy blog. The cream background was a neutral starting point. Red and black and white/cream worked well together.
Red roses and green ruscus were a fun choice for the The Queen of Hearts. We used pewter teapots as vases.
The arrows were drawn by hand, cut out then stuck on kebab skewers.
The black and white paper straws make everything fun and sophisticated at the same time. The tags printables are from the Graffical Muse. Just add ribbon.
We served meringues on a white ceramic cake stand and used a cloche for height. This formed our centre piece and we arranged the other elements around this. Old books and oversized keys added to the whimsy of the setting.
The Marie biscuits are topped with clocks printed on edible paper. We stuck it down with royal icing, which always results in a sticky kitchen. We made sure the clocks were the same size as our round punch for easy cutting. For those of you who enjoy a bigger challenge here is a recipe with royal icing instruction to make the clocks from scratch. Although our cheat’s version is pretty awesome. We used a wrought iron bunny to serve the biscuits. Not white, but a bunny that suits our pallet.
The small playing cards on the cupcakes are also edible. You can have them printed at Baker’s Bin. Save these printables to a memory stick and take it to the store to print.
We hope you enjoy your Alice and Wonderland party as much as we did ours.
Alice Through the Looking Glass starts at NuMetro Cinemas on the 27th of May. Here’s a sneak peak of what’s sure to be another amazing Tim Burton film:
