Mad Hatter Tea Party

I need to add to my bucket list to have a Mad Hatter themed party! I can imagine using all sorts of odd table cloths and runners, lots of lace and different pattern fabrics, chairs of all sorts, mixed matched cups and saucers in all different colours and patterns, cake and sandwich stands, candlesticks, lampshades, lots of teapots, watches and clocks, wallpaper, hat and coat stands, hats, drink me and eat me bottles etc!! Everyone would have to at least wear a hat or dress up in random clothing. We would have to change seats at intervals and would have to play cards or croquet! And other old fashioned games like musical chairs, potato sack or three-legged races.. We would serve sandwiches, cup cakes and macaroons in lots of colours. Invitatons would match the theme and if possible we could set it all up in a forest, bush area or in the garden! It could be sophisticated and proper or fun and kiddish..

I love the textures and patterns of this Mad Hatter Tea Party from Curious Sofa featured in Better Homes and Gardens:

  1. Good to know about this information on tea party. Few months ago, I booked one of exemplary Los Angeles event venues and arranged an evening snack party with my family. Invited all of them and had excellent time there.
