Alice in Wonderland Decorations

The best place to have an Alice in Wonderland themed birthday party is outdoors. Now, if you can’t make this happen, you can still put on an awesome event, however if there is the option to put together this party outside, definitely go for it! You want to give the illusion of springtime to your guests, so taking the party outdoors is a sure way to help this motif along. Décor should include streamers, polka dot balloons, and spring flowers like daisies. These should be in the bright colors of yellows, pinks, blues, greens, and purples.

Tea cups should also be in abundance within your decorations, so get creative with this. Flowers in teacup pots, teacup streamers, and of course, setting up your eating tables to replicate an actual tea party. Create signage that you can post up throughout the party that quote the actual Alice in Wonderland book like “You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.” and “It’s always tea time.” The book offers tons of quotes for you to utilize brilliantly for your Alice in Wonderland themed party.

Alice in Wonderland Party Food

The birthday cake itself should be a detailed representation of the theme. Think a giant teacup cake, or the Mad Hatter’s top hat mixed with fondant pieces of the rabbit’s pocket watch and Alice herself. This should be placed on a main event table in a center point that guests can immediately see. Other treats on the main event table should be equally detail oriented, so opt for foods like cupcakes, cake pops, and big sugar cookies.

Fondant Mad Hatter Toppers by Shawna McGreevy

Daffodil cake pops, teacup shaped and frosted cookies, and cupcakes with deliciously thick frosting and toppers of characters like the Cheshire cat and the live doorknob are especially fun. You could also do Fondant Mad Hatter topper cupcakes, there is a youtube video above on how to make this amazing cupcake toppers. Rice crispy treat bars in the shape of playing cards from the Queen of Heart’s land add another special touch. Pudding in tea cups and gummy caterpillars give the treat table an extra dollop of creativity, and colorful candies in oblong, multiple sized apothecary jars are always a must have. More savory foods such as carrots, spring green salad, and cucumber tea sandwiches are easy for guests to grab and go to enjoy the birthday festivities.
