Alice In Wonderland Tea Party Ideas

Since this book is full of fantasy and creativity, there are so many fun ways you can plan for your own tea party. All of them are so different from each other too!

Tea Party Themes

Always start with a theme. Alice in Wonderland is a fantastic theme, but if you have a child turning one, you could even call it “Alice in ONEderland!”

If you want to throw a party for a teen, make it a “mad hatter” then instead of tea, you can serve fruity drinks and on-theme snacks.

For adults, throw a “mad hatter” tea party and invite all your guests to wear their favorite crazy hats! For more Themes for a Tea Party read here.

Curious Invitations

After you decide on a theme, create some fun invitations that convey this theme to your guests.

If you are short on time, order some custom invitations from Etsy. Here are a few fun ideas (along with links to buy them if you want!).

  • Keyhole Invitation – The invitation opens up like a book and the keyhole cutout on the front shows Alice inside the card.
  • Use Antique Keys – Buy some skeleton keys and attach the invitation to them.
  • Alice in ONEderland Invites – These look like a vintage postcard taken right out of the book.
  • Admit One Tickets – These lovely tickets have all the party details on them.
  • Read Me Scroll – Print out the PDF and then assemble it like a scroll with a “read me” tag attached.

Party Favors and Prizes

There are so many fun ideas from the book and movies that you can use to make your own party favors. Here are some of my favorite ones.

  • Books – hand out the paperback books or Alice in Wonderland coloring books
  • Movies – send guests home with their own DVD
  • Cookies – give guests bags of hand-painted cookies that say “eat me.”
  • Deck of cards
  • Personalized Tumblers – If you don’t own a Cricut, you can buy a personalized tumbler on Etsy with your guest’s name on them.

What should you serve at an Alice in Wonderland Tea party? I have a long list of wonderful and creative ideas.

Cucumber Sandwiches – these are really cute tea sandwiches. Cut them into heart shapes for a whimsical twist.

Put playing cards on cupcakes. I love the idea of using red cupcake liners (since the Queen of hearts wanted her white roses painted red!).

Serve drinks in little glass jars labeled “drink me.” It adds to the mad charm of the party.

Here are some more ideas I found online too!

Of course, every tea party needs a cake! Order a custom-made cake for the party or follow an online-tutorial and make your own.

More Alice In Wonderland Party Supplies

For the ultimate party, here are some party supplies that I think are essential. You’ll want to consider party decorations, props for a selfie booth, and even party favor bags and cupcake toppers.

When you decorate your table for the tea party, be as colorful as you want! The fun thing about this theme is that nothing about that book or movie made sense – so the more mis-matched you make it, the better!
