Real Parties: Alice in Wonderland Birthday

Alice in Wonderland Party Ideas

I stumbled upon this absolutely AMAZING Alice in Wonderland-inspired party on photographer Jessica Claire’s blog a while back, and even though it’s been almost 3 years since the party actually took place, it still remains as one of the most adorable kids parties I’ve ever seen…

It also feels especially timely to feature this theme right now with Disney’s new Alice in Wonderland movie by Tim Burton opening in theaters today… which I personally can’t wait to go see in IMAX 3D!

Something tells me there are going to be a LOT of “Wonderland” themed celebrations popping up this year… and hopefully for all ages –  I love the idea of tailoring the Wonderland theme to adult parties too – like milestone birthdays, bridal showers, and whimsical engagement parties!

This colorful tea party was actually a combined celebration for 3 different birthday girls, and each guest of honor received her own fabulously decked-out birthday girl chair:

The rest of the guest chairs were embellished with lots of brightly colored artificial flowers & greenery:

Place settings included real china tea cups, colorful utensils, rhinestone details for added sparkle, and a princess wand for each girl to decorate:

The ultra-creative “whimsical flower garden” featured giant flowers and an enchanted carousel horse with fairy wings!

… as well as a petting zoo, complete with lots of bunny rabbits, of course!

Thanks so much to photographer Jessica Claire for all of the beautiful and “WONDERfully” inspiring images (pun intended)! =)

    I had a “Merry Unbirthday Mad Hatter Tea Party” for my birthday this year (my birthday was during the week, the party on the weekend, so technically it was my unbirthday the day of the party). Made everyone come in hats, put “eat me” and “Drink me” signs on things, a “through the looking glass” sign on the bathroom mirror, croquet sticks laying around, etc. It was fun!

  2. Therese Dozier March 5, 2010 at 9:56 am

    That is too cute! It really looks like the kids had a great time.. Looks like I know what I am gonna do for my next birthday party!

  3. Janelle March 5, 2010 at 9:57 am

    Wow, that’s quite the party! Love the chairs!!!

  4. Donna March 5, 2010 at 10:07 am

    Alice in Wonderland is definitely going to be all the rage this year. I love all the paper lanterns; we actually sell various colored paper lanterns and some other fun whimsical items that are perfect for this peculiar theme.

  10. newlywedsnextdoor March 5, 2010 at 10:50 am

    WOW this is stunning. So many details! The chairs are amazing! I can see a lot of time and money went into this. Did each girl get their own little cake? So cute!

  11. michelle @ blissful musings March 5, 2010 at 11:14 am

    WOW! The color, details, perfect chaos is just incredible. I love the hanging lanterns.

    Beautiful Party

  18. Lisa March 5, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    Such a magical party! I love the tea cups for small children who would not normally be allowed near something so fragile. I love the “throw caution to the wind” very “wonderland” feel. I will be tucking these idea’s away!

  19. Kate Landers Events, LLC March 7, 2010 at 9:10 am

    When I saw this party about a year ago I gasped, the whimsy, color, creativity–all left me speechless. I love it! I too expect (and hope!) to see lots of Alice and Wonderland themed parties this year.

  20. Leah March 7, 2010 at 9:06 pm

    what a fabulous party – lots of great ideas here.

  21. Davar@ Elevator Accident Lawyer March 7, 2010 at 11:29 pm

    Every time I came to your blog , I get astonished by your creativity.

  22. Joanna Chong March 8, 2010 at 12:39 pm

    Loved this party! Planned a “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” for a group of ladies last year that drew a lot of inspiration from this whimsical theme! Please share your thoughts!

  23. Amanda March 8, 2010 at 2:03 pm

    What a beautiful design! I can’t wait until my daughter is old enough to throw these kinds of parties for!

  24. Indi March 9, 2010 at 1:05 am

  33. Gina Gomez March 27, 2010 at 12:56 pm

    This shows so much creativity! I always try to outdo myself every year. (I only have one daughter so lucky me!) But this is out of this world! Does this come naturally? It takes me all year to plan ONE party. Although I think i work better under pressure and deadline because that’s when i get the best ideas!

  34. Renee March 27, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    Fabulous tea party!

    […] This party featured on Hostess with the Mostess is to die for.  I especially love that it’s a combo party for 3 different girls’ birthdays…this is likely something in my near future as the ‘grandkids’ seem to all want to be born within weeks of one another.  Why not combine and share expenses, giving the rest of the family a bit of a break as well…??  I can’t pick just one idea from this party…you can’t make me  The entire post is worth checking out.
